    One thought on “Becoming Your Spouse's Better Half: Why Differences Make a Marriage Great”

    1. This book is obviously about a man and a woman and how the heck in the world they can have a nice and satisfying marriage This subject is not about the newest Web technology but about probably the oldest problem in the world since Adam and Eve, so it has been receiving a great amount of attention from thousands of authors Still Rick Johnson managed to add some new thoughts to this, while keeping the book pretty fun and easy to read.The book talks about both men and women, and is aimed to help us [...]

    2. I really enjoyed this one It s written from a Christian perspective half of the book is aimed at explaining men to their wives, and half at explaining women to their husbands so we can cherish one another better I learned a lot I do think the half of the book explaining men is the stronger half a couple of the women s chapters were a bit thin No surprise, since the author is a man who confesses to being flummoxed by women often enough I guess I give him credit for a credible effort despite his b [...]

    3. I went into this book very optimistic I read one of Dr Laura s marriage books a few years back and really disliked it, so I was hoping this one would be different.It was different, but not in the way I hoped First of all, I won this book through , but I don t exactly fit the profile of the type of person that this book was written for which I didn t know when I entered the drawing I m a liberal, feminist, atheistic female who dislikes shopping and will probably never stay at home to raise my kid [...]

    4. I enjoyed this book by Rick Johnson This was my first book that I have read by him and he put humor throughout the book which could have been a boring book about marriage Though, I wish that he had insight on the women but I did understand why he did not as he is a male Though, reading the guys part of the book really helped me have insight on my husband I wish then he would have had a section about marriage all together Also how to work it all together and have a good marriage All in all I ra [...]

    5. This book did enlighten me about knowing who is a man xixixiIt tells reader 7 things we should know as a woman about who a man is and 7 things man should know about woman.It will helps reader to become a good spouse s better half.

    6. The strengths of this book include Amazing insight into the man s mind, what the man needs and wants The book lacks depth overall, however it is only 215 pages It is written by a pastor and it does have occasional quotation of scripture and bible stories However, even if you are not Christian as I am you can overlook this, because the topic in itself is fascinating and interesting to read about Another point where the author lacked depth was on the subject of women I think if his wife had offere [...]

    7. The gist Becoming Your Spouse s Better Half Why Differences Make a Marriage Great by Rick Johnson gives marital advice on how to understand your partner based on their gender norms The book is divided into two sections, the first half explains men to women and the second half explains women to men Johnson says having a successful marriage is not about finding the perfect person to marry It s about loving someone in an unselfish, Christlike manner Whatever we want out of marriage unconditional lo [...]

    8. Mostly goodFor the most part I really enjoyed this book There were just two chapters I didn t like and it s probably just where I m at in life Humor mixed with truth and life experience.

    9. Unbelievably biased and poorly written The author does not understand women enough to write a book for both spouses It seems like he wrote the section on wives based off of every sexist stereotype about women he could find.

    10. Reading a good book like this is great for the soul and it s content is making an impact in my marriage How much better is it that my wife also read it This is a great marriage book for him and her It is written by male author Rick Johnson, and after discussing it with my wife, we both agree it is spot on in much of the material However, when he talks about some men being exceptions to the rule, some ways for us are on the exception route rather than whats stereotypically normal It is my belief [...]

    11. I just finished reading Becoming Your Spouse s Better Half Why Differences Make a Marriage Great.Rick spends seven chapters describing how man think and why they behave the way they do Then he spends seven chapters talking about women and their unique thoughts and behaviors.I m a counselor and I ve been married for 26 years, so much of this book confirmed what I knew However, there were parts that were new and interesting Mostly what I loved about the book was Rick s lighthearted writing and his [...]

    12. This was an enjoyable and informative book It is written by a married pastor with children He seems to have excellent insights regarding some of the basic differences between men and women and the way they communicate At times, the book really had me laughing The book has a section which discusses what men need from their wives another section outlining what wives need from their husbands Most of his suggestions for a happy marriage boil down to good communication and looking out for the needs o [...]

    13. Good book over all, He talks to women in the first half explaning why men do the things they do and to women in the 2nd half I read the whole thing and thought in general he was correct on most fronts Every women and man is different so you pick and choose what would help your marriage It made me see why Kenny needs food all the time and how he views it It helped me understand men and the whole sex thing, why they need it and that they also feel loved from it, not just a physical fulfillment He [...]

    14. This book is definitely worth reading I like the authors voice and facts on how to understand men and women in marriages He s funny My husband really enjoyed hue book and would often read ahead of me and I d have to catch up It really helped me understand the male mind and how Christian men still are affected by things the same as unbelieving men It really helped our marriage and understanding and getting to know my husband better Our marriage is the best that it has every been in almost 5 years [...]

    15. There were several points in this book with which I didn t agree however, I thought it was a great informational book about the differences between men and women The seven chapters that spoke to women about the different modes of men really were food for thought I read several parts aloud to Josh, and he was in complete agreement One part really spoke to me about an issue I ve personally been struggling with the author stated that men take pride in their work while we take pride in being mothers [...]

    16. While I had high hopes for this book, it simply missed the mark for me The book is Christian based, and while I have enjoyed many other books with similar values, the author writes about many antiquated points of view that I could just not wrap my head around It s clear that he feels the man is the stronger sex and that women need to be sheltered While it s nice to think of your husband as your protector, the author further alludes to the husband having control over the wife since she is the wea [...]

    17. I read the first half in the early part of the year, but just finished the second half meant for husbands to read this last weekend Nothing really new to the self help genre, but that doesn t mean it s a worthless read However, I personally could have done without all the talk of spirituality and God I d rather hear about relationships in a book about relationships some might say that it s a necessary component, but obviously not all feel that way so, if you are like me, try to find a differen [...]

    19. Marvelous I love how he goes into some detail explaining how men think their modes and what kinds of words are helpful and healing and which are hurtful Then he explains to men how women think their moods and offers suggestions for husbands to bless, encourage, and love their wives in tangible and meaningful ways I don t totally fit his descriptions of a woman s emotions, but I ve always known that It s an important book for looking inside yourself for how you can grow and then look outside your [...]

    20. Very good book I have read several books on marriage but I like the way this one is formatted one section for women to read about their husband s needs, wants, and what you as his wife can better understand and be supportive This same information is given for husbands to better support and provide what their wives need It is recommended that a couple read the book together which I agree would be effective This might also be a good book for a married couple class for newly weds and for marriage c [...]

    21. Didn t find anything helpful about this book I felt like the author had very antiquated views of women and men men are the stronger, superior sex I m not a feminist by any means, but I believe marriage is a partnership and each partner brings their strengths and weaknesses to it I know my husband would have rolled his eyes at reading this book because neither of us fit perfectly into the modes and moods that the author describes I probably wouldn t read another book by this author.

    22. Great spousal insight I enjoyed following Johnson s format of having partners read the chapters corresponding to their opposite gender spouses Despite knowing a good amount regarding the give and give and take yep, that s right GGT of healthy relationships, Johnson really peeled back the layers a bit further, focusing on the inner workings of the mind of one s significant other than I had previously read about in other marriage books.

    23. If you re married, read this book If you re in a relationship, read this book If you want to be in a relationship and have it work, read this book.Why men are men and why women are women and why that is perfectly all right Understand your spouse significant other opposite sex Understand yourself.This book will help with it all

    24. It was good Basic information that we already pretty much know or I at least hope majority of married know BUT sometimes it helps to re educate yourself, take a step back, and oh yeah that would be nicer of me to do etc It was such a quick and easy read that why would you not put in the effort to revamp yourself in the llllove department

    25. I give it 3.5 stars A good, lighthearted book on marriage Learned a lot about the men s side and can see how the book would be useful for couples to read together Agreed with a lot of the women s side, too Nice easy read

    26. While I appreciated his insights as a man into men s thought patterns and emotions,when I got to part 2 of the book I just had a hard time reading what a man thought women s thought patterns and emotions were all about I might pick it back up later.

    27. I read this entire book in 2 days It was pretty informative as far as the different thought processes between women and men I had a few of those Ah ha moments that will change the way I behave in my marriage I will edit this review in a few months to review the changes in my marriage.

    28. Excellent book with fresh information I put a longer review on e but of all the marriage relationship books I have read this is one of the best.

    29. This is a great book for a husband and wife to read together Reading this book will help you better understand your spouse and allow you to love the differences that are male and female.
