"...No one thing has the potential to shape your life--your identity as a man--more than your marriage." So says Scott Haltzman, author of this cut-and-dried, practical book on how a man can make his marriage better. I enjoyed the read, and learned plenty of simple (though sometimes common-sensical) tips for keeping my wife happy. It's no surprise that most of Haltzman's advice is about putting the needs of your wife and family above your own.

A very accessible book. As a woman, it provides invaluable insight into male/husbands actions and how men think. Being told the possible flaws of marriage therapy was both surprising and honest.

Most of my friends have been married for over twenty years. We all have marital issues. This book speaks the language of man - "make your marriage your job" and spells out 8 steps to practice the adage "a happy wife is a happy life". Even though the targeted audience are men, women will find the book informative too, particularly from the male perspective of the relationship. I would recommend this book to all my friends, especially my male friends.

Every woman should read this book for two reasons: 1) it's such a kick to hear how men really operate and what strategies work for them, rather than to read some New Age garble about how they should be, and 2) author Scott Haltzman is so clearly on the side of men and in a way that supports women. He's a coach with a rallying cry of "come on, fellas, we can make our women happy."

This is a great book for men looking to make their marriage stronger. If you love your wife, you will read this book over and over. I read this book about once every year since I've gotten married.

You would have to ask my hubby whether the advice is good in practice. To me it seems sound and the book is an entertaining and informative read.
