If you've had any experience with men whatsoever, you'll know that expecting your husband to respond the way your girlfriend does isn't going to happen. Have you ever wondered "If only I knew what he was thinking"? Well then, girlfriend, this book is your ticket to finding out exactly what is going on in a man's mind.
Let's face it. Men are different from us in the way they act, think and behave. In the first chapter, Steve shares the 3 things a man must accomplish before he can truly focus his attention on you.
You'll also discover why men are so competitive and why your husband always want to be the best. This chapter will also shed some light on why your hubby spends so much time working, why he blows his top when you blow the budget and his mysterious mood swings. After reading this I stopped taking my husband's behavior so personally.
Men not only communicate differently, but they even display their love and affection differently. If you've ever felt unloved even though your husband insists he loves you, then you might want to find out what Steve has to say about how men show they love. I saw things in a whole new light after reading this. Now I see all the little (and big) things that my husband does for me and remind myself of how loved I am instead of waiting for him to buy me a romantic gift or take me out to dinner.
Steve also shares the 3 simple needs that every man has and how to meet them. This is really common sense advice, but it's surprising how few women really apply this advice. And you'll also find out how to really communicate with your man.
For woman that are single, Steve offers some advice on finding and capturing the heart of Mr. Right.I disagree with his advice on waiting for 90 days before sleeping with a man, though. As someone with strong religious convictions, I feel that sex should wait until marriage.
Steve also offers some advice on why men cheat and how to avoid an affair. I felt that this chapter dealt too lightly with an issue that was so serious.
There's also advice on dealing with meddlesome in-laws, and for single moms who are starting new relationships.
The book had a strong 1950's tone to it and some readers may find the old-fashioned advice annoying. Most of the advice isn't anything new or earth-shatteringly different and probably something you heard from your mom or Pastor or read in other marriage books.
But it is a useful reminder of the common sense advice that seems to be missing from many marriages and relationships today.
