I did manage to power through to the end and did find much of the actual advice to be helpful, but I generally felt that the author, who constantly quoted scripture and actively discouraged cohabitation or sex before marriage, even with couples going through it all a second time, seemed to be talking to someone else entirely, like I wasn’t the target audience and was just eavesdropping on someone else’s conversation, rather than having one with the author myself.
I’m not positive, but I’m pretty sure that’s not what you want in a book. Limiting your readership so drastically seems like a bad idea, too. If you belong to a different faith or eschew religion altogether you should probably keep looking.
Some reviewers complained the book was too religious. I'm not a religious person but I am okay with others believing what they want to. With that being said, the Christian references are not overbearing and are sparingly used. Most of which can easily be circumvented by just skipping to the next paragraph.
I immediately implemented some of the recommended areas and techniques that would make an immediate and helpful impact in my step family household. In our family, this books recommendations were well received and have put our family in a better position than it was while on a path were success is much more attainable.
I'd recommend this book to any step-father or step-dad to be.
