I Wish He Had Come With Instructions

I Wish He Had Come With Instructions
The Woman's Guide to a Man's Brain
Mike Bechtle
Tons of books have been written about men by men for women, something the author acknowledges. But his intend in writing was to show men how men think and bring home the point that woman can learn to communicate and live with a man without trying to change him or be confused by his action or inaction. He starts off by saying that this book is designed for women with mentally healthy men. It doesn't address abuse or mental instability. The book is divided into five main parts and each part deals with a different aspect, such as communication, thoughts, or actions. The author draws from personal experiences and uses his stories to bring out his points.

I was really excited to get this book, but just couldn't get into it. The information was good, the stories were interesting, but I had to force myself to finish it. All of the information was the same stuff I've heard before, but presented with the author's unique style. The author did a great job of talking about almost anything a woman might have a questions aobut. I think this would have been incredibly helpful during my first few years of marriage, but twenty years down the road, not so much. Overall, this was a nice book, just not for me. I would recommend it to young woman starting to date, newly married, or in a rough relationship and confused about their husband.

I received this book free of charge from Revell Reads in exchange for my honest review.
