Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Women who feel they need a Rosetta stone to interpret their husbands' behavior no longer have to be frustrated. Psychologist and media personality Leman channels his years of professional counseling experience into easy-to-follow, common sense advice for wives. While never placing blame on women for their husbands' poor behavior, the author does believe that wives can encourage their husbands to be better partners by altering some of their expectations. One expectation that should never be altered, however, is that of mutual respect. Leman does not mince words about what to do with men who continually disrespect their wives—“dump the chump” is his advice. Specific questions from wives are peppered throughout, followed by the author's sage feedback. Some may feel Leman puts too shiny an interpretation on the aspects of husbands' behavior that infuriate women the most by suggesting that men really do want to please their wives but are often clueless as to how to do this. A wife can only know for sure if she gives the author's five-day plan a try. (Oct.)

This is THE BOOK to explain the male brain to a woman. I have used the tips and improved communication between my husband of 30 years and myself. It had gotten to the point where we just didn't talk to avoid misunderstandings. Now, I know what and how much to say to get him to relate to want I want to tell him

Once again, Dr. Leman did an outstanding job! This book has been such a help to my marriage. I initially purchased this book about a month ago to figure out how to change my husband's behaviors--those annoying behaviors he does, his lack of communication with me, his abiltiy to tune me out and focus on what he wants, etc. What I found was this book addresses my own attitudes, actions and assumptions. It is not about changing someone else's behaviors, but changing your own. By doing so, you can influence and alter how your husband relates to you. I have put the priciples from this book into practice and have been AMAZED at how my husband is responding to me! And how QUICKLY he did so! Our marriage relationship is certainly reaping the rewards! Incidentally, the principles are easy to understand and really DO work! My friends have even seen a change in my husband's attitude and actions. I have been recommending this book to all my girlfriends. I believe this book will tremendously help a troubled marriage and make a good marriage better! Definately a valuable addition to your home library!

I'd recommend this to any woman with a man in her life. A few small bits weren't quite relevant in my current relationship (my guy is a bit unusual in some respects), but overall it was very sage advice in a very easy to read and digestable format. I wish this was available on the Nook!!! This isn't a title I want lying around for my guy to find and assume I'm trying to replace him...

This book isn't really intended for couples with real problems. Sometimes the answer should not be to lower your expectations with a smile.
