I think it is important for me to add some context before I say what I have to say about this book, I am a Christian and I read quite a few books on relationships by Christian authors. It is important for me to note that I read my Bible daily and I have no qualms with the religious aspect of this book. I truly cannot think of a book I disliked more. It had some really great underlying themes that I thought would manifest to make a good or even great book but this was incredibly offensive. The author would state that his ideas had come across as being sexist or misogynistic and combat it with simply saying he wasn't. This book's target audience is for men who want their wives to be Stepford sex slaves and for the women who think they should be just that. He talked about women who had been physically and mentally abused by their husbands being able to "make things work" because of the mentality behind this book. He had a side note that abuse is "wicked" but went on to discuss many more cases where couples were brought back together by women "finally" showing respect. At one point of the book it was said that women basically needed to stop talking so much, not get offended when men say their wives have gained weight, to have sex with men all the time even if they aren't feeling well or up to it, and that we can't blame men for being visually stimulated by other women. According to this book, it's not their fault and you can't blame them for looking and when they do cheat, it is the wife's fault. I don't usually like when reviews state what the book is about but in this case I think it is incredibly important since it was so misleading. Like I said before, I really thought there might be a good idea or two in this. I was very wrong. I thought the idea of showing respect and love to each other was great and that it would discuss ways to do that. It did not. I was even surprised at how it didn't mention the possibility that women needed to be respected until the end of the book. I would not recommend this book to anyone.
