I don’t think I am the audience Mr. Johnson had in mind when he wrote this book. I give this book two stars because it has a catchy title, it got me to enter to win this book from Goodreads, and there are some grains of truth buried in all the garbage. * SPOILER ALERT * So what do I not like about this book. Mr. Johnson is very contradictory. He has a whole chapter entitled “Sex is Not a Weapon” but then he describes how women should use sex to influence how men behave. He blatantly states that sex is one of women’s greatest resources and then laments for pages about how women shouldn’t have sex before marriage or live with their partner. Ummm, Mr. Johnson, I think you forgot about something. Women have sexual needs as well. Some women are not ashamed of sleeping with men but take great pleasure out of it. And, I’m sorry to shock you here, but some women think about sex more than once a day. I know, I know, shocking isn’t it! Another irksome part of this book is how Mr. Johnson tells single women that they should figure out what sort of men they want and then disregard whatever their heart says. Just follow your head and you will find happiness. Sounds like a loveless relationship to me. Perhaps the greatest insult to me as a woman is how Mr. Johnson believes that women should encourage men to be the spiritual leader of the household. It doesn’t matter that some women are more spiritual than the men in their lives, which he admits that his wife is, all that matters is the man should take the lead. And just to continue the theme of what upset me about this book, it seems that women are entirely responsible for their own happiness. Because, get this, they need to first please their man before their man will do anything for them. They do this by telling their man how wonderful he is and stroking his ego. Ummm, no. Maybe Mr. Johnson’s material would be better received by those 1950s housewives out there. Maybe I am just not the audience this book was written for. But I think Mr. Johnson needs to spend some time with women outside his closed world.

    Ok, ok, I know I am not married, and not even close to being married, but this book was actually very good and gave a really good insight into the male mind. I think it's never too early to try and understand the opposite sex, and that it can be very helpful to know all these things before being married. Very well-written, relatable and understandable book, and I strongly recommend it, especially to wives who feel like they often don't understand their husbands, but also to simply curious people Ok, ok, I know I am not married, and not even close to being married, but this book was actually very good and gave a really good insight into the male mind.

    Do you ever feel like you and your husband speak a different language? Have you ever had a miscommunication with your husband? Ever wanted to get your husband to talk more? If you answered yes to any of those questions then this book will help you begin to understand why. The truth is that men and women not only think differently but react differently physically as well. Many of these differences between the way men and women process something are built into our bodies and the challenges are to Do you ever feel like you and your husband speak a different language? Have you ever had a miscommunication with your husband? Ever wanted to get your husband to talk more? If you answered yes to any of those questions then this book will help you begin to understand why. The truth is that men and women not only think differently but react differently physically as well. Many of these differences between the way men and women process something are built into our bodies and the challenges are to learn about them and make them work for us rather than trying to make us the same. Part of this journey is asking the question, what does it mean to be a man? In a world that often equates being equal with being the same it becomes impossible to accomplish and that leads to frustration. If you expect your husband to talk and listen in the same way you do you are setting yourself up for failure with an unrealistic expectation. The author begins by looking at the characteristics of a good man and how learning to understand those characteristics helps to communication with a man. There is also a chapter on traits that will hold men back and how that affects their communication with you. Many of these were developed at an early age influenced by the role models in their lives. The simple truth is that men and women think, process and therefor talk in significantly different ways and when we learn and use those differences we can communicate more effectively. The key is to understand how our spouse thinks and then use those differences rather that expect them to make all the adjustments and think like we do, an impossible task. Starting with the simple reason of why we talk, women to build relationship and men to solve a problem or give facts, helps to see why we often struggle to get to the same place. Understanding the variances in the way and how long it takes us to process something and especially how we connect things together can make a major difference in getting our message through. Coming to a basic understanding of the role of honor, respect and admiration in men and why those things are important and either enhance or block communication. Women have an incredible amount of power in their relationships and when they learn how to harness that power and can help them build tremendous relationships. One of the key challenges today is the impact of limited, poor or even no positive male role model. The impact of a father on his daughter and their ability to communicate with men has always been and continues to be a tremendous influence on their daughters. This will help you look at the influence your father had on your communication skills with your husband. This is a relatively easy and quick read that will give you a basic understanding of how to more effectively communicate with your husband therefor enhance your relationship.

    I'm probably dreaming but I really expect my husband to listen to me only because I speak, and I'm afraid but I'm pretty sure he expects just the same, so i found this book really really sciovinistic and incredibly closed mind; most of the times I would say that this author is trying to teach women to be manipulative. Anyway that is just my opinion.

Anyway that is just my opinion. Probabilmente sogno, ma io mi aspetto che mio marito mi ascolti anche solo per il fatto che sto parlando e sono abbastanza sicura che lui si aspetti lo stesso trattamento, quindi ho trovato questo libro sciovinistico, maschilista ed estremamente chiuso; per essere precisi per la maggior parte del tempo ritengo che l'autore abbia insegnato alle donne i migliori modi di "manipolazione". Comunque questa è solo la mia opinione. THANKS TO NETGALLEY AND REVELL FOR THE PREVIEW!

    I bought this book at the airport at one of the Hudson News stores. I was having issues with my husband and I thought this book would shed some light on men in general. I got 50 pages in and couldn't find the energy to actually finish the book. Either my husband is a rare breed or he's from a distant planet because after reading the little bit that I did, I didn't find any of it useful.

    Loved it! Loved it! This is exactly what I needed at the right time! I should have read this before I got married. This book opened my eyes to how I could build my husband up instead of destroying him. I want to become a Man wisperer.

    How to Become a "Husband Whisperer" Author and speaker Rick Johnson's book "How to Talk So Your Husband Will Listen" helps demystify husband-wife communication. In fact, his purpose in writing is to help women learn how to use their power of influence to help their husbands become the men they were created to be (p. 20).

In fact, his purpose in writing is to help women learn how to use their power of influence to help their husbands become the men they were created to be (p. 20). He wants to help wives become "husband whisperers." He says, "As a woman you can build up a man or tear him down merely by the level of respect you give to him and the amount of faith you have in him. Your tongue wields greater power than any double-edged sword" (p. 18). In the book Johnson addresses such topics as authentic masculinity, character traits of a good man, traits that hold a man back, differences in how men and women communicate, keys to successful communication, and powerful tools for influencing a man. Wives, this book is guaranteed to help you better understand your man as you take a look at how men think and process information and how they communicate. You'll also find lots of practical tips you can put into practice immediately. Probably the most helpful chapter is chapter five, which highlights communication differences between men and women, but also outlines ten keys to successful communication with a man. More than anything, you'll learn to appreciate your man for being a man and not just another of your girlfriends. Sprinkled throughout the book you'll find gray boxes with additional information or humorous anecdotes. There's "One Woman's Description of a Good Man," "Communication Needs of Men and Women," "Differences between Men and Women," "Why Men and Women Aren't Always on the Same Page," "Words That Supercharge Your Man," and others. Along the same lines, I appreciated the author's sense of humor. If you're a wife trying to better understand your man or talk so your man will listen, this book will get you started in the right direction. Because we're so different, it may take practice, but I think the strategies Johnson presents are sure-fire ways to improve communication in any marriage. I highly recommend this book. Note: I received a copy of the book from the publisher for this review. However, the opinions expressed in the review are my own.

    Interesting. Very Interesting. Many things to think about. Some things to talk over with my husband, to see if the author is correct and to see if my husband thinks the same way. Some generalities about men don't seem to fit my husband, the same with generalities about women, they don't always fit me. Much to put into practice, many things that need changing in my attitudes and actions to make our 30 year marriage even better in the years to come. I want my husband to be the best man God can help Interesting. Very Interesting. Many things to think about.

I want my husband to be the best man God can help him to be. I want to be a positive force and not be pulling him down. I want to be the helpmate God created me to be for him. I am such a failure some times. I have not always respected him the way God wants me to, the way he deserves to be respected... it is one thing I have really be working on lately. I am hoping this book will be a help in my growth as a Christian wife.

    My husband and I worked our way through this book together on a long drive, and we both agree this book is fairly insulting to the male species. The author presents males as slightly more civilized versions of cavemen, still primitive in nearly all aspects of life. Furthermore, it seems to present a perspective in dealing with males like a vending machine. If you learn how to operate it correctly, it will produce what you want. I found it rather uninspiring and a disappointment.

    I picked up this book on a book rack at a newsstand because it was six bucks - and I was fascinated by the title. This would be a great book for couples to read together - whether they have been together for a long time or short time. this would also be a great book for singles who have struggled to identify and alter destructive patterns and beliefs...... And whether you identify as a "Christian" or not - ( I don't) there is tremendous wisdom here....

    I loved reading this book found it very insightful and has also helped me personally deeply. I dated my husband for more than a husband but this book helped me understand him better and be a better version of myself around him. Very well written with great examples. A must read for all who want to better their relationships.

    I actually only read the book called How to Talk So Your Husband Will Listen by the same author, but that is not listed on goodreads. It had some good tips in it that I never thought about before, but a lot of the ideas in the book are a bit archaic and don't really apply to younger generations.

    I found this book to have some excellent encouragement for wives to understand their husbands. I was torn between giving it a 3 or 4 star due to the fact that I found the book a bit confusing at times. The title is "How to Talk So Your HUSBAND Will Listen: And Listen So Your HUSBAND Will Talk." For me the title was misleading. I see in the front cover that it was originally titled, "The Man Whisperer." Okay, not sure that one works for me either.

The book seemed to switch from talking to wives to talking to women in general. Early in the book the author says he is assuming that the reader is married and that her man is a good man, not a bum, abuser or drug addict. I agree with his information regarding women in general and their thinking toward men. As a man, the author is funny and very factually about how men operate. I love the blatant honesty that he writes with. Overall this is a great book on the difference between men and women. We as women need to learn how to love our husbands in the way they feel loved! I recommend this book to any women who wants a little encouragement from a mans view point on how to understand her man. Chapter 6 "Power Tools for Women" was really the chapter I needed to read and found beneficial. Although, Chapter 8 "Sex Is Not a Weapon" was a great chapter too. Overall, I realize I have a GREAT MAN! He has all the great qualities most women look for and very few of "The Top 10 Things About Men That Drive Women Crazy" (Chapter 9).

    3.4 -- This was a good book, but the title was too narrow. It was about so much more than talking and listening. It can help women understand how and why men think and act differently than women. This book is published by a Christian publisher, so there are references to God and the Bible.

    While this book did include some helpful observations on communicating with men, it also covered masculinity and the influence of fathers in children's lives. An interesting book; could give you a better understanding of your own personality and upbringing.
