The author style is awesome too with a very high sense of humor which helps a lot to deliver serious messages. What I did not like, and what prevented me from giving four stars, is the use of many bible verses and the shift of context after its chapter to Christianity! The book is good, so why to transform it to a Christian book?! BTW, I am Christian, so I have no negative feelings toward Bible verses or Christianity in general; but the mix between the very valuable points of the book and Christianity is not needed, and sometimes it is fabricated link.
Other than this, the book is awesome and I did enjoy it. It's worth reading. Are you a married man? Do you think you suck at being a good husband?
Well, the good news is that you have plenty of company! Doug Fields has a short book pages that is chocked full of practical advice to help any guy improve his status with his wife. What I appreciated about the book is that - unlike many Christian help books - it's not done in a lecturing tone or with a condescending "I've arrived" attitude. Fields comes from the attitude of "I'm the chief among sinners" and his advice is Are you a married man? Fields comes from the attitude of "I'm the chief among sinners" and his advice is just as much for him as it is for other guys.
Because we're human - and guys! Most importantly, he gives guys the proper carrot to motivate us to improve The actions themselves are simple to remember - but difficult to carry out everyday. They are: 1.
7 Ways to Be Her Hero: The One Your Wife Has Been Waiting For
Don't say everything you think; 2. Say what is powerful; 3. Don't say anything listening ; 4. Go big with small things; 5. Be liberal with touch - but not THAT way; 6. Put your pride aside; 7. Shepherd your wife's heart. Fields' best advice comes at the end, when he says to take these steps one at a time and practice it and master it before trying another because trying them all at once is futile and you will fail. This book has the feel of being mentored by someone who has been there before and wants us to learn how to be a good husband.

The book is not lecturing; it's more of a friend to friend, Godly man conversations about sharpening our iron. I read this slowly so I could absorb and think about as much of this book as I could. It will probably be a reference that I will return to time and again. Mar 27, Josh rated it really liked it. Good Basic Marriage Book The author does a good job pitting this information on a shelf that all men can reach.
Its basic information, but sometimes it's the basic stuff we forget. Jun 22, Greg Webb rated it liked it Shelves: , christian , relationships. Wasn't crazy about the way Fields 'dumbed' this down to try and appeal to "guys" rather than men with his forcefully awkward potty humor not that I'm a prude, it just seemed misplaced and ill attempts at connecting through "guyisms". May 18, Robert rated it liked it. Quick read with practical, tested advice on how to have a healthy marriage. For better or worse, it really cracked the whip on husbands, but it's about how guys can improve so perhaps that's fair.
One of my favorite concepts was Fields' idea of One Heart in marriage. If, by God's design, my wife and I are one, then when I hurt my wife, I hurt myself too. On the other hand, when I build up her heart, I also build up myself. That's the powerful dynamic of onenes Quick read with practical, tested advice on how to have a healthy marriage.
That's the powerful dynamic of oneness In your marriage, you have One Heart, and when you wound your spouse, you wound yourself too. Jun 11, Greg rated it it was ok Shelves: family. I listened to this on a road trip today and it was ok. Many of the points Fields makes are ones I've heard often, but they are good reminders none-the-less!
I am inspired by men who seek to help and support other men to be better, and for that I hope I can do some things differently as a result of this book. Mar 05, Jennifer rated it it was ok. The best thing about this book is the title. Bought this one for my husband but of course I had to read it first. It was painfully wordy, and the "good stuff" could have easily been reduced to a pamphlet or blog post.
Where's my red pen? Oct 02, Trae Castles rated it really liked it. Simple steps, practical advice, comical writing, and stuff that guys should just know. Dec 28, Daniel Adams rated it really liked it. Very practical. It was humorous and light hearted while getting to the heart of the issue.

The first chapter, he looked into what is breaking and hurting our marriages. He also explored the meaning behind Ecclesiastes and this verse basically means Solomon was pursuing after everything he wanted to do and he realized, he was chasing things like the wind. And in the second chapter he revealed what scripture verses relate to marriage and how God is strongly for marriage. Part B of the seven chapters was designed to address if your wife had a big problem in that category.
I would recommend this life changing book to all men. This book is especially helpful to all of the husbands that are striving to become the best husband that they can be. Doug Fields did an excellent job in describing how men are born to chase after something and most of us have a problem with chasing after work too much. I liked how he stressed that it is important to work but we also must make time for our wife and kids. I appreciated that Doug Fields wrote in a way that men could connect with the content and it was very relatable.
May 30, Susan rated it it was amazing Shelves: blog-review , netgalley-review , book-cover-lured-me-in , self-help. I know. I am not a man. I admit my curiosity and I read it anyway. I was pleasantly surprised on both accounts. Fields is right on target and I walked away with a fun list of practices to improve my relationship. Skimming through will defeat the purpose. The principles and advice shared are relevant for men in any season of marriage or can be referenced for a genuine refresher.
My only critique is in regard to the formatting for e-reader devices. I use a Kindle Paperwhite and at times the formatting was choppy and broken, especially around chapter transitions, which I found slightly distracting. I received a complimentary copy of this title from the publisher via NetGalley for an honest review. Aug 12, Tima rated it really liked it. It doesn't take very much for a man or woman to feel like they are in love.
CAP OFF YOUR LOOK
The key is finding ways to keep that love alive and make your wife feel like she is loved and cherished. The author speaks candidly from his experiences about ways that men can step up to the plate and be a hero to their wives. The book is not meant for women. It's written by a man for a man. The jokes are guy jokes, the presentation is all guy, and the way of looking at situations is from the male perspective.
I'll be It doesn't take very much for a man or woman to feel like they are in love. I'll be the first to admit, I'm a girl and I read this book. I wanted to see if it was something I could pass on to my husband. And ironically enough, the author talks about this being the case. Men don't buy books. Women buy books for their men to read. Well, I did just that. And I'm definitely going to pass this one on. I honestly didn't get some of the jokes or what the author considered humor.
But I read the book while my husband and I were on a road trip together. So I read large portions of the book aloud to hubby and he got it. So clearly I'm the wrong gender. But that aside, it's straight forward, practical, Christian advice for the husband. While there are jokes and stories to keep the book amusing, the subject matter is something every guy should read and apply.
So if you're a guy looking for solid marriage advice - buy this book. Select a City Close.
