The Marriage of Your Dreams by Rick Johnson

Understanding Your Man is Key to Building a Dream Marriage 
 Bestselling Marriage Expert Explains How Men Think & What They Need From Their Wives 

As bestselling relationship expert Rick Johnson spoke across the country, women continuously asked him how they could be better wives and fulfill their husbands’ needs when they weren’t entirely sure what his needs were. Johnson sensed a growing frustration in women not understanding what their husbands needed from them. What grew out of those questions is Johnson’s newest book, which gives women a look at the core of a man to understand how he thinks, how he operates and what motivates him. The Marriage of Your Dreams: A Woman’s Guide to Understanding Her Man focuses on how a woman can satisfy and support the needs of her man – by first identifying his needs. It will help women understand her man’s sexual needs and how his job affects the rest of his life. The book will help her encourage his emotional growth, recognize common traps most men fall into, encourage him as a father and know what men admire and desire most in their wife.

“A woman has tremendous God-given power to influence a man’s life, positively or negatively,” writes Johnson. “By understanding how to best use their powerful influence, women can encourage their husbands and build a satisfying and exciting relationship.”

The Marriage of Your Dreams by Rick Johnson is a wonderful guide for women to really know how to understand her husband.  Johnson does a wonderful job helping women really get to know the way men think.  He gives straight forward and honest information sprinkling it with humor .   Each chapter is filled with thought provoking insight into different aspects of the man's world and wraps up with a few questions and answers from women concerning the chapter's topic.  Here's a copy of the table of contents....
