the guys weigh in…

I’m thrilled that guys are 1.) actually reading The Husband’s Guide to Getting Lucky from cover to cover and 2.) taking the time to tell me what they thought. Some dudes are even BLOGGING about it. Wowza.

If you’re on the fence, maybe some of this chatter from the menfolk will push you over the edge.

E-mail from an author whose stuff I really like: Your new book rocks. You really hit the nail on the head! Your writing – intuitively conversational. Your layout – strong. Your message – direly needed. Thank you, Marla, for all the hours you spent hammering this book out for us married dudes.

Blog post from Nathan who says, “She’s a great writer, and the material is covered in a very frank, entertaining way. She didn’t beat around the bush when a strong stance needed to be taken, but she also explained concepts in a way that connected with me a little better than some other marriage books I have read.” I love what he said about the Husband Surveys.

E-mail from a guy who works at a publishing house: I’m already 10 pages in and enjoying the book. I’ve always enjoyed your writing style. Conversational and breezy. Simple. Just right for us guys.

Blog post from Chad, a pastor in Texas, who says The Husband’s Guide is “hilarious and very insightful.”

From Bryan, a Facebook friend: Hi Marla! Read about a third of the book last night. So far so good! Several good laughs. Especially the “Nothing Box.” My wife and I were dying…

And this isn’t from a guy, but it made me smile. From Kandi: Read your book last night in one sitting. It rocks! So proud of you and your heart for marriage… it oozes through the whole book. By the end, I felt kind of woozy with delight thinking about how God was going to use it. And I might just have felt like getting lucky, too!

And my friend Cherith: My review: GLOWING. A great, short, easy read that does a wonderful job of putting us women (and what we’re looking for in the bedroom) in a nutshell. Good job, Marla!!!! Another home run (pun completely intended).

And my friend (and my cousin’s wife) Christy: Seriously, your hubby’s going to love this book. Brian downloaded it last night and already has it read. I think he’s read 3 books in the entire 12 years we’ve been married. AND, I got roses today.

I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your feedback, friends. I’m so thankful for everyone who has taken the time to share their thoughts! Bless you!!

    So awesome! I wish I had more time to read. I got through the second chapter (which was straight-up awesome, though painful). I hope I can finish the book this weekend at least. Of course, if I wasn’t here reading your blog, I could be reading your book!

    I just bought this on my husband’s Kindle acct, so he got the email receipt. The email he sends to me? “Ummm…..Is this a suggestion that I need some re-education in some areas? ” I told him if he learns better how to read me, is that such a bad thing? Plus its for a good cause. I can’t wait to check it out.
