"The authors use their Christian beliefs and the results of a survey to explain that women need security, approval, and consistent emotional connection—all of which are often frustrated by men’s obsessions with logic and competition, as well as their need for regular periods of isolation. The production is a handy guide for understanding women, rather than a theological lesson or a resource for troubled marriages. Bible quotes and mental health prescriptions are minimized in favor of practical insights and advice. Nathan Larkin somehow tones down the already low-key writing, thus flattening the material even more but not threatening its accessibility. The generalizations about what men expect are uninspiring, in spite of the narrator’s attempt to speak buddy to buddy with his male listeners."
