Cracking the communication code between husband and wife involves understanding one thing: that unconditional respect is as powerful for him as unconditional love is for her.

There are just much better books on marriage out there.

This book was a much needed but hard pill for me to swallow. I am a strong, independent, opinionated woman and I didn't buy it at first. I grew up with strong, proud men and thought I had a good grasp on how to respect men and it frustrated me to hear the author try to sell me on the fact that my tone of voice or face can crush my husband's ego. But after I put my big girl pants on, I realized he was absolutely correct. I would never speak to my boss the way I sometimes speak to my husband. With ...more

Good concept. But this really should have been an essay, and not a book. At the most, it should have had 10 chapters. I am dying by Chapter 7, because all of his chapters have the same pattern so far: 1/2 of the chapter is emails/anecdotes from former clients/couples he has counseled; the other half is telling people that men have to unconditionally love their wives, and women have to unconditionally respect their husbands in different combinations of words. It's almost torturous to read.

I have to say that this is truly the best book for marriages ever. Christian based, honest, direct, and helpful to read as a husband, wife, or couple. I wish I would have found this book years ago!

Very good, borderline revolutionary way to look at how we "Love Each Other" by explaining how the different genders view it. Even if you don't hold the same religious views (author is vocal Christian, and uses Biblical passages in his arguments) the principles are very good for helping a marriage as the genders interact and view the concepts of "Love" differently.

This book was good to me because we had a married couple Bible study with Emerson's videos. I kept thinking "Is this guy for real?" I bought the book after Emerson said something outrageous on the video about evolution, the "subversive use of adderall to control men" and feminists. I knew a Bible study with other couples was good for us, but I wanted to quit because Eggerichs was including so much other unrelated religious "propaganda". The book is decent. It is soundly written grammatically and ...more

This book is worth reading for anyone. Yes, it has cheesy parts and it sometimes seems written for a caveman audience but the author did not start out as a writer, so be forgiving. The first section is continual self promotion for the book but skip it or skim through it quickly (unless you still need to be sold on why you should read the book further). The part that is most effective is where the author finally spells out how to love and respect your spouse.

We both agree that this book has help

This book is extremely helpful to my wife and I. Dr. Emerson Eggerichs covers the Biblical commands for husbands to love their wives and for wives to respect their husbands, and goes into great detail about how each can learn to serve each other well. He covers how differently God has created both and the beauty of those differences as well as how they can cause misunderstanding. The workbook is wonderful as well in walking out the different sections and chapters of the main text with questions ...more

you can be right but wrong at the top of your voice, St Paul unconditional, the crazy cycle, stepping on air hose, gauge behavior by that desired for son daughter, mutual understanding in need for love and respect, love is choice commitment, rebound and go after again, hear the cry and respond with unconditional love, cleave the first year, affectionate every day, no bitter harsh, need someone to listen, getting historic, fools rush in where angels fear to tread, worth and respect in job, people ...more

We are reading this book together as a young marrieds group of 7-8 couples. We tried using the workbook together but eventually stopped. Honest sharing and confession is the better route - and choosing to discuss one main thought per chapter. This workbook is not necessary and again, it comes across as self-promoting. The book is good material for counseling though. Take it one chapter at a time and spread it over a year - that way you don't get tired of hearing the same message again and again.
Apr 26, 2015 Regina rated it it was amazing
Wow. And Ouch. This book is completely politically INcorrect, but IS unapologetically biblical. We've been so programed by society to obsess over our RIGHT to be happy, what we DESERVE. I myself, have expressed disgust at our entitled generation, never dreaming that I had also fallen victim of this mentality as well. I felt myself being convicted over and over again. This book will change your marriage.
Some practical advice, but it was very, very, VERY sexist. It was annoying because I felt like a lot of traits he used to describe each sex was the opposite for my marriage.

We did the video series with the workbook and those were torture to watch for the most part.

My wife and I have been really enjoying the book, but have found the workbook wordy and it feals as though we are reading the book a second time was we work through this guide. "Not a workbook for the easily swayed or faint of heart reader...

Excellent book with a life changing message.

It is a good companion to the book. It got us talking, and I think that was the point. Some of it might seem silly or to simple but it is worth doing with your spouse or spouse to be.

I didn't finish.
it's been by my bedside for the longest time.
I'm not a non-fiction reader, I guess...

I haven't finished reading... but the author seems to put the burden primarily on the wives' shoulders. Really, a man SHOULD keep up his end to earn his partner's respect.
