Hi ya all, has anyone taken the time to read a good book lately?

I got given a book as a wedding gift and finally after three months of picking it up and putting it down i finally finished it!

Now here's the kicker!!!

It's a book about women for men, no seriously, a few skeptic's here is the title
" For men only" 'a straightforward guide to the inner lives of women'. ISBN 1-59052-572-8

written by Shaunti and Jeff Feldhahn.

Interesting to say the least, insightful and an eye opener!!!

ANd to be fair there's one for women as well!!!! it's called, get this; "for women only" 'what you need to know about ther inner lives of men'. ISBN 1-59052-317-2

Now only being recently married, i can understand that #1 what do i know about my wife except she bueatiful lovely gorgeous and annoying!!! Well i learnt about a stuff i didn't know and vice versa for her!!!
So Ladies and Gents i think we all should get the earplugs out of our ears, take the blinders off and pull our finger out and have a read!!!

WHAT DO YOU THINK???

p.s. try your local bookstore or visit these websites;

www.mpbooks.com
www.forwomenonlybook.com
www.formenonlybook.com

all critisicism will be listened to but not taken personally!

Christopher,

I can't think of a greater waste of money than a book purporting to be a guide to the inner thoughts of the opposite sex. The funniest part of the idea is that someone thinks that all men, or all women, think the same :)))

Now who was it that said "there's a sucker born every minute" LOL

another excerp from book mentioned above;

"Is this statement true or false? Although I may not always show it well, I do deeply need, respect, and desire, my husband/significant other." [Choose one answer]*
True; 93%
False; 7%

Excludes divorced/seperated women (who still answered in the 80% range!)

So as i was saying skeptics of this world!!!!

Damn! I married into the other 7%! What rotten luck.

So the book suggests that if you dedicate the bulk of your time to caring for, pampering and listening to your wife the odds of lovemaking increase? Wow, what rocket scientist came up with that?

May I suggest that, on your path to 'emotional enlightenment', you stop publicly referring to your wife as SWMBO? Doesn't quite fit the caring-sharing guy image you are building here.

Seriously though, a relationship takes a lot of effort and its good to see you are thinking about it. Best of luck.

Matt.

I was messy and messing us both up! I guess my belief that she was the one i wanted to marry paid off, my strength and determination carried me thru!

I believe marriage is for life, your are commited to the person you married, thru thick and thin!!

Some battles in life are worth fighting for, others are strategic withdrawls, till you can turn the tide.

Oh dear.
Chris, one of the great things about marriage is that you'll never learn what your partner is really thinking. After about 50 years of marriage you won't even be close.
All you can do is learn to adapt.
This is often displayed by saying such things as "yes dear." It saves a lot of reading :))

I'm in my little mushroom hole, leave me to be a mushroom, kept in the dark. or is it the bloody ice age all over again???

This book will help you get the nag off your back and your wife/ life partner back in the sack were we belong, but like one has already said ( thanks mate) you have to work at the relationship, not be the mushroom.

All i am asking you go and read the book, just a little book 3/4 of and inch thick, 19mm approx.

If it helps, then it helps!!!

Umm Footloose, trials and triublations! Everyone has a story, i'm the eldest of eight, my d/h father had three wives and struck out on all three. Being the eldest sucked in my split family.

I'm not saying it's the bible, just saying it might help someone out there who thinks their relationship sucks or it's down the drain.

With the divorce rate being so high maybe people can try reading to increase there awareness about what a women needs and what a man needs!

It comes down to listening and communicating, which as time goes by we are doing less and less of it. I'm still learning to communicate with people and with my new wife, my siblings!

I'm not a preacher or church leader, just an ordinary bloke who has had a few bad relationships!

I'm looking forward to all of you mentioned, except death i would like to live as long as i can to be with my beautiful wife!!!
maybe have beautiful children.

Okay i'll get off my soap box!

The girls can say if has wheels and a dick, it's going to give you trouble!!!

Maybe if we took the time to understand the trouble and find out hows she feels and try not to fix it then maybe we score the browny points for that extra shag we being wanting, or that lcd tv we be eyeing off at the local store or that fishing trip with the boys?????

a few extra points don't go astray or cuddles or kisses, or text messages saying " i love you gorgeous" or "how's your day" and listen to the feelings not listen to fix the problem!!!

I know i like a good SNAG, oops SHAG.

Ahhh yes, the inner life of a woman....a book might be able to tell you a fair bit and even get down to the nitty gritty of "when she says i got a headache, she really means piss off" , but it will never tell you that a woman is a non-ending book - you will never get to the end of understanding us women.

Finally a man who is willing to read and learn, who is prepared to learn what its going to take to please his wife without being in bed or the lounge or in the back of the car!!LOL!! I wish Nath would try something like this...maybe I should cut out articles in his shooting mag's and stick in photocopies of the books which i want him to read!!!!!

but on a serious note....."the 5 love languages is a good" one too!

Im gonna have a look at the girls one!! I need another book to be half way through (Im half wasy through 8 at the moment!!)

ps....been married for nearly 3 1/2 yrs ..... have a sense of hunour and you'll be right!!

Do you want to know what love is.

It is finding out after your married that your wife has server depression, then after you're first child she gets Post natal depression.

Try fighting those two for 7 years, and come out the other end with a solid marriage.

Then try to build a successful business while you are fighting to keep your marriage on track and raising a young one.

I know exactly what I said to my wife the day we were married, and the reason we are together know is because I kept my word, and stood by her in sickness and in health.

If Christopher thinks he can find true love in a book then he will be another divorcee statistic.

All of the above post are a few guys having a laugh, so Christopher take a harden up pill and get over it.

Cheers Steve.

I just went up to the Mrs. and told her how beautiful she looks...
She glarred at me and said, "and what the f#@%k are you after!
I think it is her who needs the book!

Also Laura,
Dont take things personaly, most people are haveing a bloody good laugh (including Christopher)and using their sense of humour (that thing you suggested we all needed).
If Christopher was haveing trouble he could have stoped baiting.
He is entitled to his views as much as anyone else on this site.

Whats that saying?

I like too watch!!!

Thats why i'm 33 thrusday, bein married 4 months one day,5 hours, 15 mins,45 seconds, and yes it has it's ups and downs, and i'm still learning, lots of things, like my woman asks so many questions that i don't have an answer for and when i get cranky because she's ao many questions that i don't an answer for because i always tell her everything I know!!! I tell her this before it goes to much further so we Don't end up in a big arguement!

If i don't have the answer i tell her, if i do i tell her, but i think she gets into a mind set and can't get out of that track until her curiosity is satified!

So yeah marriage is a learning curve for this little black duck!

Congrats on the marriage!!!

I hope i am as long and wish you and yours truly a prosperous marriage and many more years!!!

One was one of those girly books about mothers and daughters and the other "Crocodile Safari Man".......
Its only through listing to this Blok.....Ma.....SNA...., Person
Its all become clear!

For an excellent insight into the basic differences between men and women I recommend "Why Men Don’t Listen and Women Can’t Read Maps" by Alan and Barbara Pease. An excellent book which considers the millions of years of evolution and how they have given the sexes different skills and ways of seeing the world.

However if you wish to read the biggest piece of cr@p ever to win a Pulitzer Prize I could do no better than to suggest "The Road" by Cormac McCarthy.

At the other end of the literary scale take a look at "The Constant Gardner" by John le Carre - beautifully written and the story almost falls off the pages before you.

Seriously thinking about joining!!!

Thanxs pop2jocem, but everyone's entitled to there opinion, if they don't like my suggestion, click onto another page!!! The guy next door is a ex airforce vet, he can't see his kids, divorced from his wife, after i sat him down and had a good chat with him, he realised a few things, he use to drink copious amounts of alcohol, but he has cut down and enjoy's a better life now!!!

I the eldest in a broken family, and i hated it! That's why i am 33 on thursday and finaly married, befoe i put myself accidently of course into a tree or rock wall, because i pushed myself to hard at work or haven't slept'd properly...

Oh! You old fogies.... :)

Also try: "The Grapes of Wrath" - John Steinbeck, read it as a teenager and the passage where he takes the milk from a woman's (who has lost her child) breast stays with me still.

"Rogue Male" - Geoffrey Household (1937) still holds as one of the better adventure stories.

On a more modern Australian theme take a look at "The Dog Fence" - James Woodford. Simply a journal of a trip along... errr... the Dog Fence (I know the central southern bit of it well :)
