Love and Respect was very, very good. Cracking the Communication Code was amazing. A book that will remind you of things you may have missed in the first book as well as provide MUCH additional insight.

Get both books and read them in order - though each can stand alone.

I also recommend the Love and Respect conference ( Your marriage and other relationships will be rewarded with growth regardless of your marriage status - troubled, fine or excellent. The conferences are g...more
I like the ideas behind this book and picked it up because I wanted to learn some tips to strengthen my relationship with my fiancé. Unfortunately, I found the book a bit trite and stale. A lot of the advice given seemed like common sense to me and I did not get a lot out of it. However, I do see value in reading or thinking about being the best partner you can be, anyway, regardless of my opinion of this specific book.
My wife and I enjoyed the author's first book (Love and Respect), but this book we couldn't finish. A waste of money since it is just a rehash of the first book. Buy the the first one, skip the second. I will be extra cautious if he comes out with a third book. Maybe he needs to try the niche approach (L&R for your kids, L&R for your pets, L&R for your boss, etc.) On second thought, skip that too- others have tried to milk that one already.

Good follow up to Love and Respect but if you are going to read one or the other I recommend Love and Respect. A lot of repeated information in this book.

There are some nugets of information that make this a good read for those that want to reflect and enhance the information in the original book.

Read this as a follow-up to "Love and Respect." I think you can find some YouTube videos that explain how important it is that we learn to communicate in a way with our spouses that they can understand. We see and hear life differently as men and women, especially married partners.
Daryl Watts
Some interesting new stories and the last section introduces TUFTS, using Truthful Words, Uplifting Words, Forgiving Words, Thankful Words, and Scriptural Words, with your spouse. Otherwise, most of the book is a restatement of Love & Respect by the same author.

Great book on understand what the other gender hears and how they process it. It really helped me and Scott understand how to better phrase, ask or explain things to each other.

I got some good tools to use with my spouse out of this, but I don't care for the author's style of writing. He's a bit condescending to the reader...
Because you enjoyed Love and Respect, you might also enjoy Cracking the Communication Code which was also written by Emerson Eggerichs.
Sometimes difficult to read. Ideas are good but language is boggy. Did not finish but will try again later.

A great follow up to 'Love & Respect' - Emerson applies those principles to communication.
