My husband and I have only been married for two and a half years, but it seemed we were already having sexual issues. At first, in our relationship I was very sexual, but after we got married I simply wasn't feeling turned on and started to feel tension rise in our beginning marriage relationship. We both decided a book was the best starting point to see what we could do to remedy my lack of desire. We got this book on my request and it's been a great tool to help make our marriage stronger and for us to grow closer to each other. The book does have some very "practical" or "duh" solutions but a person is buying this book because you have a problem and need a solution, but then they (referring to bad reviews) don't want to take heed of what the author is conveying. Basically I'm saying that if you come at this book with a closed mind, it won't matter if Einstein wrote the book, you aren't going to get what you need out of the book. With my husband and I, we've come to understand the other side of the sexual desire spectrum as well as have seen that we are not alone in our struggles. This book also helps to explain the causes of low or high sexual desire to each of the spouses which helps with communication with your spouse. We are also able to express our desires, what's working for each of us and what isnt, a lot more effectively after reading this book. I wouldn't go as far as to say every couple needs to read this book, but It honestly doesn't hurt when trying to understand as well as to communicate with your spouse better. I highly recommend this to book to any couple having marrital problems, especially in the bedroom. The sentiments expressed help to bring a couple closer together if one or both are seriously open to improving their relationship. (The author also addresses a single spouse interested in changing the relationship and how to get the other spouse on board.)

Wast of Money & Time!

This book is terrible. It goes so far as to say ' Just have sex and it will be fine'. After 19 years of marriage I know this is not the answer. Says the same thing- over, and over, and over!
