Publisher's Description

What Is He Really Thinking?

When a woman begins a relationship with a man, she may think she's found her knight in shining armor. As the relationship continues, that armor can begin to feel like a barricade she just can't get past it. What's he hiding in there, anyway?

Relationship and communication expert Mike Bechtle offers women an insider's guide to the puzzling male brain. Simple and practical, this book provides women with a roadmap for better conversations and improved relationships. Bechtle reminds readers that men and women share many similarities, and by embracing those similarities they can better deal with differences. He explains how men think, act, communicate, and grow in relationships, and even offers tips for communicating in a toxic relationship.

Wives, girlfriends, mothers, daughters, friends, and coworkers will find real help within these pages.

    My thoughts: First, the disclaimer. "I was provided a free paperback copy of this book. All opinions are my own." That done, I WISH HE HAD COME WITH INSTRUCTIONS intrigued me. Not that I need instructions. I've been married to the same man for 30 years and have two grown sons. I understand men. I can read my husband and both sons' thoughts by just looking at them. Sometimes by the tone of their voice.

    But my oldest son is thinking about getting married and the girl he has his eye on will be in the same boot I was in when I married. Why does he want to go play basketball with the guys instead of going to the mall with me? Doesn't he love me anymore? Why doesn't he know how to clean (fill in the blank)? Didn't his mama teach him anything? I showed him where the laundry room is several times--why does his stinky, dirty socks keep being taken off and left balled up in the living room?

    I could go on.

    But I won't. You get the picture.

    This book has common sense approaches that teach women that some men really don't see dirt. They see nothing wrong and don't understand what's wrong with the room that you asked them to clean. I say some men because one of my sons probably is more meticulous than I am. Of course, he's in the military and everything has to be kept just so. That spills over into his everyday life.

    This book explains the term "Man on a mission" and also illustrates that men are just tall boys. But aside from the fun stuff, it also teaches you how to work together as a team and how to spot and treat hot spots that might cause problems in the marriage.

    So you want to know why this intelligent man who wowed you with his knowledge in study hall suddenly turns into a monkey at a foot ball game or starts thumping a book loudly instead of clapping or does other stuff that makes you wonder what just happened... its okay. Its normal. Men are just tall boys.

    And just a tiny tip -- men respond well to compliments and encouragement. They thrive on it.

    And that is just a couple of the nuggets of wisdom in this book. If you are engaged or newly married (or know someone who is) then pick up a copy of I WISH HE HAD COME WITH INSTRUCTIONS. You'll be glad you did.

    Before I say anything else, let me make it clear that I found the information in this book both fascinating and useful. If you are a woman in need of a guide to the male brain, I recommend you read this book.

    I had to laugh when I read Chapter 8, though, because, evidently, the author's wife had the same issue with the book that I did. She told him, "If I didn't know you, I'd feel like you were telling me that I had to do all the changing in my relationship with my man. Your female readers are going to think, 'How come I have to change? What about him? It sounds like it's all my responsibility and he's off the hook!'"

    Poor Mike Bechtle. He must have explained himself at least a dozen times, yet I still had to fight the urge to agree with his wife that it seemed he was placing all the burden on me. I'm choosing to take his word - and hers - for it, though, because he does share some powerful and helpful insights. As Bechtle says, "I'm not letting the man off the hook. I'm just trying to help you understand him accurately."

    The book's introduction makes this clear the first time: "There are plenty of books that debate gender roles and societal issues. This isn't one of them. It's simply a guide for women to understand, from a man, what goes on inside the male mind." The rest of the book is divided into five well-defined sections: The Care and Feeding of a Man, How He Thinks, How He Acts, How He Communicates, and How He Grows. Throughout each of these, Bechtle invites women to understand, appreciate, and celebrate the different ways that men and women think. Together we're better as we learn to combine our unique strengths.

    I thank Revell for sending me a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    It will be always agreed upon that men and women are different both in actions and thoughts. It's just a bit nicer to be able to understand where men are coming from and how they will handle the situations for us women to know. So when I Wish He Had Come with Instructions by Mike Bechtle came into my hands I believe he clarified some very important points in regards to men. I know we cannot ever fully expect to understand men because each man is completely different which is great, differences are beautiful. It is easier if we can have an edge in our relationships with men as I know it would be greater for men to have this kind of info as well. Bechtle states several vital aspects that I think many women have overlooked or simply do not want to accept and those are that men need respect and admiration as much as we do and that you cannot change a man. You just have to love them for who they are which is simple just hard to do. This book was so much fun to read and get an insight into the mind of man. I received a copy for this review from Revell Books and all opinions are my own.

    I Wish He Had Come With Instructions by Mike Bechtle is a very enlightening book. I think most of us women know men are different from us, but a lot of us dont really know why. Relationship and communication expert Mike Bechtle explains how a mans brain works. He tells this in a very practical and easy to understand manner. There were even some parts in the book that brought a smile to my face and an aha moment. This is a great self help book in understanding the man in your life and why he acts the way he does! I loved the way this book was not highly technical and was written in a way that anyone could understand.

    I highly recommend this book to every woman out there. This book would benefit those already in a relationship or those just starting out. I believe this book could help a lot of couples struggling to understand each other.

    I received this book from Revell for my honest opinion.
