The book is very helpful. It gives you things to talk about you should discuss before you get married. Strongly encourage couples to read and discuss the topics.

This is the workbook, not the leader's guide. I don't know why anyone would want the workbook in a nookbook. You can't fill it out electronically, and it's 90% filling in blanks. I wanted the Leader's Guide, and when I was looking for the title "preparing for marriage" (not nookbooks, but books in general) I did not get a return for the Preparing for Marriage Leader's Guide, and since there was not additional information indicating this was a workbook, I mistakingly bought it, and once I realized what it was, felt I had been snookered. This book may be great, but was not what I wanted. If you want the leader's guide you have to type in "Preparing for Marriage Leader's Guide", and however stupidly ironic it seems, it is NOT available as a nookbook.
