Context - husband, father of four, veteran, almost 40, been married 10 years, and Christian.
I've read a lot of parenting / father books from different perspectives: vets, world leaders, religious leaders, etc. but have read very few marriage books. I would have rated this five stars if it was written in the 60s. There is some practical advice and some good high level concepts to think about - he interjects his own life experience as well - that's clear. I feel like he tried too hard to fit families into a small box - like he was speaking directly to the quinisential nuclear family. I get it, he can't write for everyone; but in our family, both adults work full time, mostly out of choice - many of his examples relied on the wife being the "stay at home."
All in all, it was a quick read and I had some takeaways and anchors on scripture, but about half the book didn't really apply to my family - obviously there is always room for improvement in husbandry, but I had very few "ah-ha" moments reading this.
