    1. I liked this bookI did. But it was a lot of repetition from the first book, "His Needs, Her Needs". But if you're just coming into this not having read the first book, then you won't feel as bogged down as I was. This book includes the following topics: why romance matters in marriage, meeting emotional needs, the policy of joint agreements, undivided attention toward your spouse, expanding your family, child training, dividing domestic responsibilities, blended or mixed families, dealing with i [...]


    2. This book was better than most of the relationship types of books I've seen in that it gives explicit ideas to try and ties it all together well. So many of these types of books ramble along with broad brush strokes that sound good but are hard to enact.I thought the idea of a "Love Bank" was novel, and while obviously not truly accurate is a nice mental model to think about. Also The Policy of Undivided Attention, The Policy of Joint Agreement and Love Busters all seem like good concepts to thi [...]


    3. His Needs, Her Needs for Parents The author, Williard F. Harley, Jr. encourages page turning via short stories that illustrate the concepts brought to bear. Walking a fine line, he bridges the intellectual divide of educated and uneducated using easily grasped wordplay and exploring the potential for realities that inspire. Clear and informative, the stories shared of those that have been in his counseling care allow the reader to examine their own lives without an accusatory or demanding tone. [...]


    4. I feel like this is a solid book for helping couples gain the groundwork for surviving parenthood with their marriages intact. While it brings in many (all) principles from previous works, this book does it through the lens of parenthood, rather than rehashing old principles and saying,"Parents need to do these things to make good marriages." It also offers practical parenting advice, some of which I'm not entirely sure I agree with, but most of which I think is useful. It also covers topics tha [...]


    5. This was a great marriage book. I loved how the author focused on working together and how he gives specific things you can do to keep the love and romance alive. I also liked looking at strengthening my marriage through the lens of parenthood, because it is a lot harder once the kids come.


    6. Although there were a lot of gender stereotypes there was also a lot of helpful information - I read this because it was part of a book club and likely never would have come across it. Here are some points I found particularly poignant- anger is nothing more than an abusive way to get what we want or to punish someone for not giving us what we want - our instincts tell us it's a reasonable response to injustice. in the end we have nothing to gain from anger. punish doesn't solve marital problems [...]


    7. As with many marriage books nothing he says is really earth-shattering, but still good stuff to be reminded of - especially the fact that the best thing we can do for our children, as parents, is to love each other. Probably the most novel idea he has (in my opinion) is that couples can move beyond merely compromising but coming to 'enthusiastic agreement' on even difficult issuest sure that's really possible, but worth trying his ideas out! Definitely worth the time to read it.


    8. I read the author's first book, "His Needs, Her Needs" and loved it. This is not just a regurgitation of his previous book though. They are both challenging, and this one is more challenging. Especially if you read it with your spouse, be prepared to make some changes because even if you think you're a darn good spouse already, you will find more tips than you can imagine on being better.


    9. حتى الان ,كتاب جيد جدا ومهم للمقبلين على الزواج لمعرفة أولويات كل طرف وتفهم موقفه لمنع الخلاف وسوء التفاهم فى المستقبل أنصح بقرااءته


    10. Helpful although not completely realistic--we're not going to have 15 hours of undivided couple time attention in a week, and enthusiastic agreement concept is interesting but how to get there?




    11. This book needs to be read by all couples. While there are some elements of the book that find disagreement with this reviewer, the needs expressed by most men and women are spot on.




    12. Gotta love the self-help books. This one is actually really good, and I wouldn't say it's just for parents. Any marriage. Really opened my eyes.
