This is my first encounter with Dr. Leman's book. This book is easy and fun to read. Good sense of humour.
Some of the suggestions are practical (but not all of them). It's a good reminder.
I found this book somewhat bias in a sense Dr Leman stereotyped man being "quiet", with "few friends", only focus on physical connection. My husband is the exact opposite, he is the most extrovert, talkative person I have ever met. He has probably 10 times more friends than I do. I have other guy friends who are more extrovert. I guess Dr. Leman can only speak for himself, not all men are like him.
If you are looking for something leisure to read, this is a good choice. If this is the last resource to save your marriage, I think there are better suggestions out there.
I do not have a husband but I wanted to know what the book was about. I found it very interesting and surprising. When some co-workers who are women asked what are your reading? When I read the title to them they just laughed at me. The sad thing is these women are divorced. I thought I would have nothing in common with this book but I was wrong. Have a New Husband by Friday applies to all the men in a woman's life. This book does not tell you how to change your man, or how to manipulate them to do what you want. It really tells the reader the wife who wants to change her husband to actually change her attitude, and actions. I found it very insightful and found that it is very true. As a woman who has been in a long term relationship. I have witnessed many of marriage don'ts. Thank you Dr. Leman for explaining what a man needs. He needs to be Respect, to be Needed and to be Fulfilled. I will always remember this and all the advice you gave in the book. I can only say don't roll your eyes open the book. You will truly learn something. God Bless.
