My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Short and sweet book. Really, it will take you all of 20 minutes to read the whole thing.
What did I learn?
Besides the fact that I am not as good of a wife as I thought I was?
#1 And most important (which is really hard for wives to hear) You can't change your husband.
#2 Love your husband. Just the way he is, and you might inspire him to be better.
#3 Be grateful that your husband puts up with you.
#4 Your husband is really a lot better than you give him credit for.
#5 Don't criticize EVER. Unless he asks for it, and even then you have to deliver it in a way that seems complimentary.
#6 Men talk for information, women talk for interaction. Define your roles, needs, and communication styles and then remember them when interacting.
#7 Affirm affirm affirm and let him know you love following his lead. And make a big deal about everything that he does that you like and/or appreciate. Thank him specifically.
#8 Talk about your admiration for each other, especially in front of other people.
#9 Speak each others' love languages.
#10 Treat a man as he is and he will remain as he is, treat him as he is the man you want him to become and he will become that man.
