    More than meets the eye

    This book deserves five stars because it delivers. Yes, the advice within will help any man improve his marriage. It also has value not intended by the authors. If I wanted a young man considering marriage to understand what's involved, I would urge him to read this book, to realize how high the expectations of women have become. Many men might be better off opting for less demanding relationships such as keeping things at a serious dating level or living together without the expectations marriage seems to bring. There are areas of this book that will make single men (and some women) cringe at the loss of independence involved in marriage. Better to cringe before than after the deal is done. Women should not read this book. It can only encourage expectations few are likely to have realized.

    A book for everyone

    As a marriage therapist I delayed writing this review until I had not only enjoyed it myself but also recommended it to a number of couples. I get very positive responses from individuals and couples who use Haltzman's very readable book. His approach of using the skills men already possess to enhance their relationship hits the right cord for the guys. The practical approaches that he recommends provide direction that couples really understand and implement.

    'MEN ARE SUCH JERKS!' How many times have you heard that, sometimes even from other men? Scott Haltzman doesn't think we're all jerks. In an unusually wise and frequently funny book, he urges us to use the skills that make us successful in work and sports to become, in effect, world-class husbands who, in return for our efforts, have a much improved chance of being appreciated, maybe even cherished, by our wives. I'm in the marriage education field and (full disclosure) know Scott Haltzman personally. Since around 70% of divorces are now being initiated by disaffected wives with their husbands frequently not knowing what hit them, this book is an extremely effective antidote to male obliviousness. Any man who reads this book will know what to do to avoid being blind-sided by his wife's abrupt announcement and departure. Of course, knowing what to do is one thing. Heeding the sage advice and actually doing it is quite another. A book can only do so much, but this one does a lot. The big question is: since women buy and read most of the marriage self-help books, how will this gold mine of information get into the hands (and heads) of the legions of husbands who badly need it? It's too bad women couldn't administer the book to their husbands intravenously, but maybe as a gift. With a 43% divorce rate for first marriages (60% for second marriages), marriage is clearly a beleagured institution. By working the male side of the street, Haltzman has made a major contribution to our understanding of how we husbands can use our male competence to properly attend to the care and feeding of our precious marriage.
