You don't have to be Orthodox to appreciate the sound Torah-based wisdom here. Friedman explains the traditional Jewish ways of intimacy and sexuality that are meant to deepen love and trust between partners. He does this through telling stories that cover the spectrum of life experience, from teenagers who are trying to figure out how far to go .... to married couples who want to bring back the spark of intimacy to their lives. Friedman assures us that commitment to a spiritual life means that...more

I give this book five stars for originality. The thinking of Mr. Friedman is so traditional and old that it becomes new and radical in his hands. Not that the book doesn't have problems, I would love to edit it and make it better than it is, but still, it contains many nuggets of wisdom that you are not going to hear on Oprah, or even from Dear Sugar. Not just nuggets, whole piles of wisdom nuggets. I read this book because Bob Dylan recommended it. I can see why Dylan, with his vast amount of e...more

"A wonderful book about accepting and valuing one's spouse. If nothing else, the reader can come away realizing that not only can one not change others, but that it is a violation of the spouse's identity and dignity for us to try to change them, as opposed to simply accepting them as they are and supporting their personal growth. Any marriage within any faith could be strengthened by reading this brief, insightful book."
Diane Goodwin
For me, the book is not limited to applying in marriage but all relationships. The book has solid values. It's an easy read and interesting.

Manis Friedman is excellent. This book is getting old but it's message is timeless and relevant.
Robert Cymbala
Fresh, challenging, and free from common-sense that damages so many.

“It's like the old question, "Do you lock your house to keep people out, or to protect what's inside?" Should a person act modestly and dress modestly in order to prevent intrusion from the outside, undesirable things from happening, or to preserve and maintain what is inside: the delicate and sensitive ability to have and maintain an intimate relationship.” 12 likes
