The information was very helpful to me as a newly engaged woman. The science is undeniably clear about our differences, male and female. I really especially enjoyed the creative way the book was written and organized. The authors successfully and entertainingly interwove personal experience with the facts.

Walt & Barb Larimore have done couples and those who counsel them an invaluable tool that is without precedent. Rarely is any new book profound in its scope and impact. This one more than qualifies. Beginning from the physiology of both the male and female brain, they compare and contrast both and move to everyday examples of how this affects differences in mood, communication, information processing, conflict approach and resolution and emotional expression. Abundantly researched and saturated with down-to-earth illustrations, this is a fresh, new, rock-solid resource. This is a publication that is in the rarefied air of 6 star category. The more personalized examples of such differences between the authors themselves is worth the price of the book. God, indeed, "made them male and female." Did He ever!
As a pastor, I highly recommend this book to anyone seeking to better understand why their mate acts they way she or he does. People often mistakenly believe that their spouse acts the way they do simply to be annoying. This book does an outstanding job of presenting the evidence for God's unique design of men and women. Yes, we are in fact very different - by design!Through their presentation, the Larimores detail how the differences are actually part of God's plan for creating women and men to complement one another. Their own stories and the easy to understand presentation of the scientific facts are wonderful and help the reader to better grasp this idea. I strongly advise anyone considering marriage, or any couple recently married to get this book and read it together. You will laugh together, point fingers at one another, and in the end, gain the freedom to allow each other to operate as God has uniquely created each of you to operate in this world and in your relationship. It is also a great read for anyone that has been married for many years.
