Publisher's Description

Men are fairly simple creatures with fairly simple needs. Yet women often find themselves frustrated trying to understand those needs in order to improve their marriages. Many wonder, "What does he expect from me? I'm doing everything the best I can. Doesn't he know I'm at the end of my rope here?" Relationship expert Rick Johnson ends the guessing game, giving women an open and honest look inside the world of a man's needs and helping them understand how best to use their influence to have a satisfying and exciting relationship.

Rick delves into the not-so-mysterious-after-all world of a man, highlighting his need for respect and admiration, his sexual desires, his communication style, his work, his emotions, and even his relationship with the "other woman"--his mother. Women will appreciate Rick's candor, humor, and insight as they discover that the marriage of their dreams is closer than they ever thought it could be.

    This book is very helpful and although written by a man is definitely a perfect book for all married women to read.

    This book has lots of helpful tips on how the woman can help her marriage. There are many books about marriage to read but this book is especially helpful for the wife who wants to make her husband feel like the most important person in her life.

    I gave this book 4/5 stars. I think it is a helpful book to any woman who wants to understand her husband a little better. It would be a good book to give to a newly married or recently engaged woman. You may not agree with all that the author says but you have to give him credit for backing up what he says. I thought he applied scripture and examples very well to get his point across. Overall it is a helpful book and worth spending your time reading.

    I would like to thank NetGalley and the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.

    As a wife, I am always looking for practical and applicable books to help out in my relationship with my husband. Although I have been married for 15 years, I still don't have it all figured out and I know I never will. That is why I am so thankful for authors like Rick Johnson who are not afraid to tackle the tough (and sometimes hard to talk about) issues in marriage. Each chapter in his new book provides answers to questions I have wondered about my whole married life!

    This book covers everything from emotions and relationships to a man's sexuality. At the end of each chapter he includes real questions that women have asked about men, and he gives honest real answers. This is a book that I will refer to over and over again, and I have already shared with numerous married friends of mine. I highly recommend this book if you have been married for 6 months or 60 years. There is always something to learn!

    Here is an example of a question from the chapter HIS RELATIONSHIPS:

    Q: What does it take for you to feel "safe" with your wife so that you can share your weak spots with her?

    A: Most men don't like to admit their weaknesses. If a man admits his weaknesses and problems, they become real and he must admit their validity. (That's why many men won't go to the doctor.) However a man can feel more secure about sharing weaknesses with his wife if he knows she will not share them with anyone else, and if he trusts she will not use the against him later (like during an argument).

    What wife doesn't want to know more about their husband and what he's really like? My favorite part of this book were when women asked Rick Johnson questions and he answered them. Some of them made me laugh because they were a simple one word answer when I'm sure the women really wanted more of an explanation....because that's how we are! His answers were so much like my husbands, which made me realize that perhaps my husband isn't that odd after all. Maybe more guys really do think like that.

    Johnson talks about the relationship with the husband's mother and your husband (which was very enlightening and kinda scary!), his relationship with his father and his relationships with others and how they affect his marriage and his family. He then goes on to discuss their communication styles, their work, sexuality, and their need for respect and admiration.

    I did find it funny when Johnson gave an example about breaking an unspoken "girl rule" when he commented to his wife, while on a date, that the girl behind him (whom he couldn't see) had a pretty laugh. His wife got mad and he couldn't figure out why that would bother her. He then went on to warn women to tell their husbands of any unspoken rules because they don't need any more help to get into trouble! Poor men...they really aren't blessed with the communication skills for the most part. He shed light on how their communication is so different and how they need time to process what they just heard. It's not that they're insensitive or uncaring...they just don't know how to express their thoughts on the matter, yet. His examples on that issue showed me how many times my husband and I had experienced that misunderstanding in communication.

    Continuing on, Johnson speaks on his odds of meeting your expectations, his emotions, his desires in a wife, his cheating heart, and his needs of his woman. I always hate reading the cheating sections because it scares me a bit, but I do like to know what I can do to keep his eyes from straying and his heart from yielding to temptation.

    Overall, this book touched on some different topics that I hadn't read in other marriage books. It was also nice to get one's opinion who wasn't a therapist or a counselor. He had polled men and got some responses back, which I thought made the book for enlightening and the men were probably more honest.

    I received this book free from Revell Publishers in exchange for my honest opinion of this book.
