From Publishers Weekly
Women who feel they need a Rosetta stone to interpret their husbands' behavior no longer have to be frustrated. Psychologist and media personality Leman channels his years of professional counseling experience into easy-to-follow, common sense advice for wives. While never placing blame on women for their husbands' poor behavior, the author does believe that wives can encourage their husbands to be better partners by altering some of their expectations. One expectation that should never be altered, however, is that of mutual respect. Leman does not mince words about what to do with men who continually disrespect their wives—dump the chump is his advice. Specific questions from wives are peppered throughout, followed by the author's sage feedback. Some may feel Leman puts too shiny an interpretation on the aspects of husbands' behavior that infuriate women the most by suggesting that men really do want to please their wives but are often clueless as to how to do this. A wife can only know for sure if she gives the author's five-day plan a try. (Oct.)

There were several "your husband is like this, thinks like this, wants this..." comments where I stopped and thought, "that's not true." When I asked my husband what he thought, 4 out of 5 times, I was correct, but for every time I was wrong, I was encouraged to continue reading.
Some of it was a little too stereotypical, and on some occasions I felt it was actually demeaning towards men. I think he was just trying to be humorous and keep things from tipping in the other direction. I get it, sort of. But, regardless, you don't have to totally agree with a book or author on everything to learn! And learning that the author has been happily married for 45 years definitely gives him the platform to teach on this subject.
I did like his writing style -- conversational and definitely interesting. It was an easy read, and a lot of what he shares is just so different from what you read in most other marriage books. I appreciated this new perspective. He also makes some references to his birth order books, which I haven't read, but now want to.
My favorite part of the book was the section on communication, and I loved that he gave specific trigger words and phrases that can hurt a conversation, like "why?" and "you should..." He explains how these words can translate to a guy, even though we might be well-intentioned in our use of them.
I genuinely want to be a better wife to my husband, and though I didn't agree with everything in this book, I enjoyed reading it and am thankful for the insight that it did give me and the conversations it opened up between my husband and me.
I ordered the kid version as well, and I found it to be helpful too, this book I need/needed to go back and reference things because, from day to day parenting is challenging. It's a good book to read when you give yourself a time out, to cool down and regroup. It was this or therapy..lol...try the book first if your at this point..with or without therapy..its good advice, and good laughs too.
Thank you Dr. Leman, you give good ole fashion advice, that is missing in alot of family life these days. I would recommend this book highly.
