As I've read the book in comparison to other "Christian" books that offer solutions based upon a biblical understanding of marriage and love, it's far and away the best on the issues related to physical intercourse. It talks about marriage and intimacy from a biblical perspective and deals with issues that other books cannot touch.
If you're a husband or wife, you NEED to study your spouse and learn about them and yourself. It's your duty that will become your delight, and I recommend this book with little reservation as a guide to understanding the physiological aspects of yourself and your spouse, sexually speaking. I also strongly recommend "Sweethearts for a Lifetime" and "Strengthening your Marriage" by Wayne Mack, "The Excellent Wife" by Martha Peace, "The Exemplary Husband" by Stuart Scott, "Christian Living in the Home" and "Solving Marriage Problems" and "The Case of the Hopeless Marriage" by Jay Adams, "How to Act Right When Your Spouse Acts Wrong" by Leslie Vernick, and "Each for the Other: Marriage as It's Meant to Be" by Bryan Chapell.
Enough marriage end in flames because people are clueless about the whole operation. Don't be.
The Lord won't excuse a mediocre, sinful marriage because you plead ignorance. Order this and a few other books and invest your mind in the person to whom you pledged your heart before the God who will call you to account for both.
