You are probably wondering why did I read this book, since I'm clearly not a husband, but a wife. But I was curious to see what points Jay Payleitner actually makes to husbands in his book, "52 Things Wives Need From Their Husbands".

There are better books on the subject in my opinion than this one. I thought some of the advice was good and some of the advice was weird/destructive.

I wasn't as inspired as I was with the book about fathers and children. I can't come up with a specific reason or criticize anything about the author's technique. Like me, he likes meaningful quotes. He manages to hit on some critical principles without being heavy-handed, but I just wasn't as moved by this work.

Decent book with some insight and humor, but not one I would put on a "must read" list.
