This book is similar to The 5 Love Languages: The Secret to Love That Lasts, but it is significantly different in that it identifies additional emotional needs and discusses common differences between men and women. Dr. Harley identifies two unique emotional needs: affection and sexual fulfillment, while Dr. Chapman simplifies those both into the category of physical touch. Having read both, I would commend them both to couples, as each brings a helpful perspective to relationships.
Dr. Harley brings his years of clinical counseling to this book, and each chapter is full of practical insight into how each of the ten emotional needs can play out in the life of a couple. I particularly benefited from his chapters on affection, sexual fulfillment, but I felt that the other eight were more hastily written. Perhaps affection and sex are the primary sources of contention in marriage, which would explain the emphasis, but I wish Dr. Harley had spent more time exploring the other topics like physical appearance and family support.
His Needs, Her Needs is informative and great for raising issues for discussion, and it is uniquely helpful in distinguishing between the emotional desire for affection and the desire for sexual fulfillment. It provides a starting point for conversations about other eight needs, but it will not provide an exhaustive source of information about those topics.
Harley speaks in a straight-forward, logical manner about a subject which is usually driven by emotion. He makes it easily understandable and the included index provides valuable tools. It's easy for both husbands and wives to go through and has questions at the end of each chapter that spurs honest conversation.
