I gave this a 5 not because I thought it was perfect, but because it was a boldly relevant book for women. Especially for the women who are controlling, critical, insulting, continually nagging, and harbor contempt for their husband who cannot do anything right. I think this book would be a wake up call for women like that. I was enlightened by the fact that many women like this believe they are doing something good, meaning they mean well, it's just who they are, that's a good thing in their minds and husbands should just have to deal with it. That's also what society seems to be projecting and reinforcing. And men for the most part take it from their wives until they either break in spirit or breakaway from the marriage altogether.

This book will no doubt get backlash from the PC police, which is even more of a reason to read it. I believe "alpha females" who crave control always and forever will read this and be alarmed in a good way. That if a woman reads this honestly she'll see some things she needs to change. She'll also understand the man in her life better, as well as being more understanding and appreciative of who he is. This book in no way suggest a woman turn into a door mat, with no thoughts or say in the marriage. Simply that a wife use her femininity which wields far greater influence in her marriage over being an domineering "alpha."

Boiling it down it was just refreshing to read a book that "gasp" was critical of an aspect modern womanhood. Encouraged women to better understand the men in their lives, and all the while offering hope. I highly recommend this book.
