Publishers WeeklyEspecially for women who want to "embrace a slower-paced, more graceful, family-oriented life" (feminists and career gals need not apply), Basham has created a guide for helping one's man achieve success (and, thus, get one's own in the process). Basham is straightforward and practical (if occasionally overbearing), complete with infomercial-quality promises like "Using your PR savvy to increase household cash flow." Her logical, step by step plan for helping a mate succeed involves locating and supporting his strengths, communicating and motivating, and using your own skills in a "stand by your man" capacity that doesn't preclude stepping up front every once in a while. Basham frequently cites celebrity examples-MSNBC host Chris Matthews, country singer Alan Jackson, the Obamas--to drive home points, but her conservative inclinations will be a turn-off for some. Those looking for solid advice on how to motivate, understand, communicate with and help a mate succeed will find this time well spent, with techniques generally transferable to children, bosses or friends.
