As man in modern society again I am humbled to what I have learned and I sparked interest in friends and family into reading this book. The men and women I told about this book have different political, religious and culture backgrounds. To me that's saying enough about this book to grant that type of respect.

Your book has definitely changed my attitude and understanding into the deep significance of marriage over the many, many years.
