I have only been married for two months, and my wife and I are both serious about making our marriage work. It's been good, but we want it to remain great. Our Bishop loaned me this book, and I only got through the first 40 pages before I realized that this one had to go on my shelf. There's so much in here men need to learn about women...and to have it come from a bible based approach is AWESOME!!! Stop hating on this work, and get a copy into your man's hands today. If you are not of the belief that Dr. Dobson wrote this book from, you may not agree but we love you anyway.

Dr. Dobson did an outstanding job of bringing to light the things that husbands need to know about their women(that us women try to explain, but just somehow can't get it out quite right). He even helped me to better understand myself concerning ways in which I approach my marriage and my relationship with my husband (things that I need to improve on). MY TIME WAS WELL SPENT READING THIS BOOK AND MY MARRIAGE IN MANY WAYS HELPED!! If wives could get this book into their husbands' hands, I can only imagine the positive impact it would have upon their marriages!! PRAISE GOD!

Women are different from men. Can we at last agree on the obvious here? Unforunately, plenty of people will be angry at that statement, just as they will be angry at Dr. Dobson for trying to explain those differences. What they do not understand is that neither Dr. Dobson nor I think of women as less than men simply because they are different. And it doesn't say much about women when radical feminists are trying to "prove" women to be equal to men by trying to become men.Dr. Dobson comes to this topic with an understanding of the differences between the sexes and a desire to foster an understanding between them. He is not trying to put down either men or women, but trying to allow husbands to understand their wives better so their marriages can be stronger.It's a very good exploration of this. It is unashamed and probing, with no topic out-of-bounds.My only complaint is the same complaint I have with so many psychology books that claim to be Christian: it relies too heavily on worldly understanding and not on God. For example, it seeks to remedy low self-esteem by worldly means rather than a trusting in God, which is the only way such esteem needs can truly and finally be met.With that in mind, Dobson does go to God quite often in this, and I was well pleased with the result. I learned a great deal, and what I learned seems very true so far.If I discover otherwise, I'll let you know.

Out-dated, sexist and patronizing.

Dr. Dobson does a great job of discussing the differences between men and women. While I do not completely agree with everything stated in this book, I also understand that it is a book of generalities. Specifically, everything does not apply to my wife or even every woman I've ever known. However; the overall analysis of men and women is very insightful. When remembered that women are different and that there are certain things I can do to make communication, marriage, and intimacy better, this book has been very insightful.

Dobson obviously knows very little about partnership - equality in marriage.
