    What a difference!!!

    This book has some amazing ideas. At first I was unsure if it would help, but I got this book the first time when my husband and I were dating 12 years ago, and gave it away. I just recently bought it again, and I use the ideas in the book and my husband feels that I am his one and only. The ideas may be outdated to some, but if really applied with assertive love and care for yourself he will be right there loving you at the same time. AWESOME!!! We've been married 10 years and still going strong.

    The suggestions in this book just don't work. I know because I tried them. If your man is taking you for granted now, you haven't seen anything yet. Women who do these things always end up being treated badly or even worse. Instead, try the other recommended readings listed below. They will lead to much better results.

    Good advice

    This book and 'The Proper Care and Feeding of Husband's' by Dr. Laura are must reads. You can disbelieve and you can fight it but the information in these two books is as true as anything in the universe. It may seem 'old fashined' to some but isn't it the old fashioned thinkers that are still married? Put these ideas into practice for six months and see where your relationship is then. Get 'How to Date Your Wife' by Stan Cronin and read all three books with your husband and you will see an increase in passion in your relationship. I know!

    I found this book to be a bit outdated. I found better advice in Dr. Laura's book 'The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands'. I wouldn't put all my eggs in this basket.

    Great Advice for Dating, Too!

    My boss gave me this book when I was a single mom. She swore I'd have men fighting on my porch over me if I applied it. She was right! Less than six months later, I had two men trying to keep me. I married one of them and have been married now for 12 years. Awesome book for single women.

    I have read this book twice now. The simple and practicle advice given is how I have finally managed to find and keep the love of my life. No head games, honesty, respect, caring and fun love is what this book is all about.

    This is one of the most valuable books that I possess. Charming yet assertively written, Light His Fire reminds/informs women that when it comes to having a nurturing,exciting, fulfilling relationship we do 'have more power than we think. It changed my life and helped me get through the painful journey and healing of infidelity. We are at a place that I knew existed but had no directions on how to get here! Read this book if you want to grow with your husband and in your marriage/relationship. It is a treasure. I use many of the tips on my sons and what a difference in their behavior, and school progress.READ IT! READ IT! READ IT!

    a must for relationships

    I have read this book twice. The suggestions and ideas Ellen gives have really made a difference in how I communicatate with my boyfriend. He tells me he's crazy about me and how glad he is that I came into his life. For the first time in my life I feel the same way.

    My Marriage Wouldn't Be The Same Without It!

    Awesome book! Very funny and witty and yet moving and effective. I can't tell you what a difference her words of advice has had on my marriage. I've read the book a few times (old habits die hard) and find my marriage is renewed each and every time. It has helped me in my relationship with my kids and co-workers as well. A must for anyone wanting to better their relationships with anyone!
