    The author lost me at "men think about sex all of the time"

    I had hoped this book would be good. But it seemed poorly written. The author rambled a lot.

    But mostly, he lost me at his statement that "men think about sex all of the time... even at funerals."

    What? That's ridiculous. That came off as extremely cliche, and it's extremely untrue.

    The author seems immature. I decided not to read anymore. I can't see how I could benefit from a book that uses cliche ideas and groups all men into one big giant glob. Not everyone is exactly the same and not all men are sex-crazed idiots.

    I read a few okay points before I got to the statement that turned me away. But nothing ground breaking.

    Really?

    Heres what i got out of it.... women shut up and have sex all the time, even schedule it. Men, women are emotional cry babies and you need to deal with it to get her to have sex with you.

    I get it can be a good read at times, because i actually lol at times SMH.

    Excellent couples, enlightening and eyeopening!

    I was just in a newly married 8 week course with this book and 4 other couples. We all loved it! Everyone got a major ahhh haaa for living, loving and respecting their spouse. The study guide is on Revell's web site or the authors and it's free too! Great group discussions and excellent take away understandings. Loved it
