My Review

Rating: 6/10

Not sure what to say. It said the right things (a little of which I adamantly disagree with), but had a feel of nothing more than other peoples work rolled into neat little chapters called courses. I AM NOT saying he copied others’ work; there were well documented references to the sources – it just did not feel like an original work.

Maybe it’s my vantage point. After covering a lot of the source material myself over the years I didn’t feel like there was a lot to offer. Would I recommend for a man’s small group? Depends.

The author does not lack passion – nor is he in left field. My preference, considering his vast experience, would be to see each topic more thoroughly explored. Maybe that’s it. How can you have a “course” on being on husband and even expect to explore it within the context of two chapters (which the author did), then move on to Finances, etc., etc. Each chapter felt lilke bullet points vs. a course.
