With that said, this is an unusually wise and compassionate book that reflects the author's years of daily experience in the trenches of marital conflict, renewal and growth. It's also well and clearly written, a very engaging read, and the organization and presentation will work well both for those who skip around books eclectically as well as those who prefer to read a book cover to cover.
Far more than simply another "10 Quick Fixes to Boost Your Sex Life Without Really Trying," this book is built on the principle that sex and sexuality are not just a place of friction and growth between partners but also a window on greater relationship challenges and how they can affect and promote our sexuality.
In narrating typical challenges in marriage, the author does not let either partner off the hook. Instead, she calls on both to stand up, wake up and grow up to be our better selves, and to treat ourselves and our partners with love, respect and empathy.
For men, this book can help us understand our wives' perspectives, as well as our own roles in relationship entanglements and quagmires, as well as the opportunities and responsibilities we have for healing - and helping ourselves and our partners to thrive in - our marriages.
