Ever feel like he just doesn’t hear you?

It’s no secret that men and women speak different languages. Or maybe it’s just that we think we say one thing and our spouse hears something else entirely. But if good communication is one of the keys to a happy marriage, it’s time to get on the same page!

You can have a powerful influence on your husband if you know how to talk to h

Ok, ok, I know I am not married, and not even close to being married, but this book was actually very good and gave a really good insight into the male mind. I think it's never too early to try and understand the opposite sex, and that it can be very helpful to know all these things before being married. Very well-written, relatable and understandable book, and I strongly recommend it, especially to wives who feel like they often don't understand their husbands, but also to simply curious people ...more

Do you ever feel like you and your husband speak a different language? Have you ever had a miscommunication with your husband? Ever wanted to get your husband to talk more?

If you answered yes to any of those questions then this book will help you begin to understand why. The truth is that men and women not only think differently but react differently physically as well. Many of these differences between the way men and women process something are built into our bodies and the challenges are to

So I actually waited about a week to post my review because I wanted to see if anyone else had anything to say about this book. I also wanted to see if my opinion of this book would change in a week after reading it. My opinion has not changed and thus my original review follows.

I call BullSh*t on this book. I don’t think I am the audience Mr. Johnson had in mind when he wrote this book. I give this book two stars because it

Loved it!

Loved it!

This is exactly what I needed at the right time! I should have read this before I got married. This book opened my eyes to how I could build my husband up instead of destroying him. I want to become a Man wisperer.

How to Become a "Husband Whisperer"

Author and speaker Rick Johnson's book "How to Talk So Your Husband Will Listen" helps demystify husband-wife communication. In fact, his purpose in writing is to help women learn how to use their power of influence to help their husbands become the men they were created to be (p. 20). He wants to help wives become "husband whisperers."

He says, "As a woman you can build up a man or tear him down merely by the level of respect you give to him and the amount of f

Recommends it for: Married Christian Men and Women
Interesting. Very Interesting. Many things to think about. Some things to talk over with my husband, to see if the author is correct and to see if my husband thinks the same way. Some generalities about men don't seem to fit my husband, the same with generalities about women, they don't always fit me.

Much to put into practice, many things that need changing in my attitudes and actions to make our 30 year marriage even better in the years to come. I want my husband to be the best man God can help

I'm probably dreaming but I really expect my husband to listen to me only because I speak, and I'm afraid but I'm pretty sure he expects just the same, so i found this book really really sciovinistic and incredibly closed mind; most of the times I would say that this author is trying to teach women to be manipulative. Anyway that is just my opinion.

Probabilmente sogno, ma io mi aspetto che mio marito mi ascolti anche solo per il fatto che sto parlando e sono abbastanza sicura che lui si aspetti

I found this book to have some excellent encouragement for wives to understand their husbands. I was torn between giving it a 3 or 4 star due to the fact that I found the book a bit confusing at times. The title is "How to Talk So Your HUSBAND Will Listen: And Listen So Your HUSBAND Will Talk." For me the title was misleading. I see in the front cover that it was originally titled, "The Man Whisperer." Okay, not sure that one works for me either. The book seemed to switch from talking to wives ...more
3.4 -- This was a good book, but the title was too narrow. It was about so much more than talking and listening. It can help women understand how and why men think and act differently than women.

This book is published by a Christian publisher, so there are references to God and the Bible.

While this book did include some helpful observations on communicating with men, it also covered masculinity and the influence of fathers in children's lives. An interesting book; could give you a better understanding of your own personality and upbringing.

I love this book because it has all I need to really understand the complex way men think, it includes visual aids, and data that is very important to have a successful conversations in relationships.
Sharon Easterling
This was a good book but I think that it could have had a better title. A lot of the book I felt was talking to single women on how to pick a potential mate and not so much to married women.
