Review Text

  • By Phyllis Zimbler Miller, author of military fiction including MRS. LIEUTENANT, LCDR MOLLIE SANDERS, SOLOMON'S JUSTICE; espionage and cozy mystery fiction; and nonfiction on October 22, 2009

    While "married bliss" may be an unattainable state, husband-and-wife writing team BJ and Laurie Woodard have done an incredible job of distilling interviews with men and women into a short and valuable book of advice that can instantly be put to use.The short, easy-to-read book has been separated into two parts: one for women and one for men. In each part the authors speak directly to that gender, explaining what it takes to keep the other gender happy.This is a book that can change your life -- get it now!-- Phyllis Zimbler Miller, author of MRS. LIEUTENANT: A SHARON GOLD NOVEL

    WOW, I have to say that this is a fantastic book. What can be better than learning how to successfully communicate with the opposite sex? OH, and to be able to read the book in less than twenty minutes and to begin using what you learned the same day. This little book holds a great amount of knowledge regarding communication between men and women. Think of all the marriages it could have saved:-). I am recommending this little book to my coaching clients. The Marriage Manual is more of a Relationship Manual. It is packed with helpful information, examples, and even a check-list to keep you on track. What a great gift for yourself and for those you know who are struggling with their relationships. This is my FIRST review...and I have hundreds of books. So, that should speak for itself. Buy this will be happy that you did.

    it's easy to read and you can do it in a very short period of time. It has a special kind of humor that makes it easy to accept how we frequently act. You can learn how to be a better wife to your husband, or a better husband to your wife, laughing about yourself. I think it's an excelent material. I will pass it on to my sister and my mom!

    Unless the size of this "tome" was to emphasize the point that marriage is really a pretty easy endeavor, the $20 price tag was a little inflated.Anyone who is alive and breathing on this planet should know inherently the advice contained in its 34 pages (when you remove all the pictures) of 14-point type-font. Presumably, most people who are considering getting married have already learned a thing or two about their prospective spouse (Does she really like flowers? Is he a "fix-it" kind of guy?) so this book made a lot of assumptions. Personally, my wife hates flowers and her emphatic statement of fact was not some trick in need of deciphering.One thing that I wanted to know from the outset is the type of surveys they performed. 500 couples over three years amounts to a great deal of extra-curricular work. Where did they find the couples? Were they in marriage counseling? What kinds of questions were asked, and how were they asked? Of course, if a couple were in therapy for communication problems, then it stands to reason that the number one complaint from those women surveyed would indeed be in the communication department.The communication advice in general was good. The simple techniques expressed are good for any two people and- if followed- should be nothing new to married couples. There is no magic bullet for communicating differently and/or better in a marriage that can't also be applied to the workplace and in social settings. And vice-versa.There were a few contradictions; the first being the claim that if men want help they'll ask for it and then on the very next page (26) "Remember a man will not typically ask for help." If a couple is having trouble communicating, this can't be good advice for a woman.The second and most frustrating contradiction was the title block "Appreciate who he is", followed by a sub block, "Changing your man." Simply put, this is terrible advice. People get divorced because they labor under the illusion that they can- and should- change the people they married. This is a false impression! Marriage vows are to love and honor IN SPITE of sickness or lack of money or fill-in-the-blank, not to set about changing one another.Most everything in here can be boiled down to things we learned to do in kindergarten. If people respected one another more often in every interaction (driving, shopping, eating out, etc.) then respecting one's spouse by listening and caring should be second nature. Putting someone else first is a trait that we could all learn to do a little more; life is not always about "me", which was more bad advice doled out on the very first page of the first chapter.The premise can be summed up as thus: Men- nod and say "ah" alot when your wives are babbling on about their feelings. Women- learn how to love performing fellatio daily on your husband. So yeah, you want to have a great marriage? Learn how to think of and put someone other than yourself first in your life, and try starting with the person you married.

    I am in a relationship and its getting to be about that time where I am thinking of moving forward. I like being prepared so I decided I needed some Marriage and Relationship advice. This lead me to read The Marriage Manual. All be it short, it was perfect for me. (As you know men have short attention spans! :)It gave me some great insight on what to be prepared for and how to best interpret my girlfriends thoughts. I was WAY OFF on many things and I have since seen a great improvement in our communication. This is a great read and I would highly recommend it!

    This book gets straight to the point with practical and easily understood advice to make your partner happy, which leads to more happiness for you both. After 23 years of a good marriage, I was a little skeptical that I could learn much from so slim a volume, but on page 33, I found a new way to show my husband how much I love him. There were other "Ah ha" moments for me, but that one alone helped us connect more and start toward a better marriage. Our life together is so much better! I now recommend this book to all my friends.
