On the whole, though, I understand myself better, and I also understand better some deeply painful conflicts I’ve had with my spouse that are apparently extremely common in heterosexual relationships. I understand my man better. As a woman in a failing marriage whose issues with my husband are highlighted throughout (and it goes both ways – Gottman correctly identified my husband’s complaints about me as the most common issues men have with women), my needs and perspective felt validated in this book. If you’ve ever been in a failing relationship, you know those self-doubts – is it mostly me? Am I being unreasonable or crazy asking for this from my partner and my relationship? Ladies, if you are going through a painful and confusing breakup, this is a surprisingly therapeutic book to read, as well as a solid guide on what to look for in your next mate. And men, listen to Gottman. If you have a woman whom you love but you’re stuck at an impasse in your relationship, put your wall down. Try following Gottman’s advice for a month or two. You have nothing to lose but so much to gain, even if your situation with this particular woman doesn’t work out. If you’re a single man who has read this book and you are this “hero” Gottman describes, go forth and spread Gottman's recommendations to your male brethren. And if I’m single in six months, call me!
This book, however, is another animal entirely. Instead of a guide for couples, this is a guide for men only. The result is not half as good as a couple's book, but twice as good -- because the advice and information is not dependent on what another person agrees to learn. 99.9% of this book empowers a man to understand what he can do better, why it is better, and how best to do it. There is precisely one bit of advice, at the very end of the book, that requires the cooperation of your spouse (and that only requires 6 seconds of her cooperation).
The book takes men from being entirely single to attracting the woman across the room who he hasn't even noticed yet, to the first meeting, the first date, the first two years, all the way to the end of a lifetime. The advise is backed by scientific information, statistical information, and anecdotes; all in short 10 minute long chapters that are entertaining to read.
I wish I had this book decades ago. It would have saved me from being in some of the bad relationships I was in, and would have made the good ones better. I could not possibly recommend any book for men more highly than this one.
I have read many books on relationships and the differences of men and women. This book has nailed it on the head. All men should read this, whether married or no . This is worth using as a teaching tool for your sons, fathers. Women, trust me when I say you'll be glad your man read this.
