This book keeps making my cry every time I read it. I'm torn: finish it, because I probably need to learn something, or send it back, because life is too short?

I agree with the basic premise that by judging, criticizing, and belittling others, we can squash them down and keep them from living up to their potential or expressing their awesomeness around us. But I resent the implication that "my man" (wtf) would act wonderful if only I'd stop being such a bitch to him. I'm not! I swear!

This book is theoretically too embarrassing to post on Goodreads, but I have to give it credit for offering some helpful advice about getting along optimally in a relationship. It encourages the reader to be appreciative of the good things about other people instead of being cranky/focused on negative traits and taking people for granted....because that mostly just hurts you anyways.

Again, this book just found me while I was browsing the shelves at the Herriman Library. It's all about taking responsibility for making your happily ever after happen. A 35-day attitude make over that will make you more happy. I'm on day 5! I noticed that these principles can also be applied to how we look at others people in our lives, not just our husbands/mates.

I'm totally down with what this book is getting at. I made a ton of notes (NOT in the book itself, mind you) about how my own attitude and appreciation (or lack thereof) for Maki affects his sense of worth etc. Pretty eye-opening. I'd recommend it for any married/dating gal.

Great read for anyone who is looking to seek out the best in their mate. Confirms how blessed I am to have a married a wonderful man. I didn't do the exercises in the book but anyone who does will strengthen their relationship.

I liked the advice (good advice for all relationships), but it was so candy coated it was slightly stomach turning. The "example stories" were also irritatingly over the top, such that I had to start skipping them.

Honestly, all this did was prove the non-wonderfulness of mine. There were some helpful tidbits (most of which I had already been trying to use) but it was full of how perfect your man should be. Well, most men are not that sensitive, so there's nothing to work with there.

This book follow a progression that helps you analyze how you relate to your mate. It gives concise directives to help you on that path. A quick read.

Very interesting book with check off charts to keep you on track. I also feel that it could be written for your woman is wonderful too. Many of the ideas are things that men need to let us know.
