story is good but female audio killed it

I enjoyed the audio book and made it quite of the way through until the female voice started in. I literally couldn't take listening any more and just stopped the book half way through. fix that part and you got yourself a solid read.

WTF

I got this book for my husband based on the good reviews and wanted to check it out before sending to him. Couldn't make it past the first few chapters. Someone left a review earlier that said "I enjoyed the book until the female voice started in then I literally couldn't take listening anymore" I feel like that sums up the intended audience for this book. **I'm not even an uber feminist but felt increasingly offended listening to this book. It's almost ironic how a book that starts with how to listen to your wife can make it sound so self centered. To all strong powered women out there, who are not just a sidekick to their spouse, this book is NOT for you or your husband.

Actual quotes from the book "men are not good at talking to their wives because they are only good at talking to MEN" and
"I can't tell you how frustrating it is when my wife doesn't do back flips when I report all the wins I have from my job!"

Lord (lots of religious references in this book as well), go rub your wife's feet and then draw her a bubble bath and listen to all the wins she has from her day, dude.

Wow, what a mess

I initially was looking for this for info on marriage in general and just to complete a book but this was a massive waste of time.
It swung between uber beta low testosterone submissive husband, and overly aggressive high maintenance whiny wife. Mix in constant preaching and it really is a mess.
Honestly if I ended up as such a nuetered, passive, beta, submissive, unimpressive husband, I'd rather end it all myself.
Have some F*ing self respect for yourself, if your wife is constantly a self centered, high maintenance, constant pain, do yourself a favor and get a divorce.
A marriage isn't worth your self respect and sense of self.

Really?

“If you’re reading this, it’s more than likely because your wife handed it to you.” That’s how low the bar is, huh? If true, this book is a complete waste of time. GFY

Decent but nothing interesting

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Too much fluff. Boring stuff. The religious references are strange and out of place.
