I bought the dead-tree version of this book for a desperate buddy of mine whose wife had isolated herself from him in their marriage. Amazon subsequently offered the Kindle version at a deep discount.

The rationale behind my purchase was two-fold: 1) I wanted to read what I recommended to see if I made a good choice. (I had based my purchase decision on reviews.) 2) I wanted to glean some tips and warning signs so that the quality of my own marriage doesn’t degrade to the point where I need this

The only positive outcome I got from this book is the reminder of taking care, cultivating, nurturing a relationship. The constant biblical references and football analogies made me sick. Couldn't finish it, dropped it at 60%.

This is a practical guide to steps to take for men who are separated from their wives. The author uses sports stories and analogies to make the points easy to grasp.

“Next, thank your wife. Thank her for getting your attention through such a courageous act. Thank her for not tolerating your unloving behavior any longer and for sending you on a course of learning how to become a better husband and father. As you express thanks to your wife, you take a major step in winning her back. Essentially what you are doing is part of one of the most powerful techniques we’ve found to release your wife from the anger that binds her. This next method that we’ll be sharing is the single most significant factor in establishing and maintaining harmony within relationships.” 2 likes
“Ask Christ to reveal what your wife needs, where she is hurting, and how she is hurting. Seek His help to identify with her pain and understand your wife better. Ask Him to help you become the man He longs for you to be.” 1 likes
