Rick & Bubba's Guide to the Almost Nearly Perfect Marriage

by Burgess & Bussey



This tongue-in-cheek book expounds on a variety of gender differences, a trendy topic in psychology circles. Written by two married guys, the reader should expect hilarious, testosterone induced observations.

Not an "almost nearly perfect" book on marriage, but taken in perspective, this book may encourage lively discussions for married couples. Taken too seriously, the stereotypes could encourage a major fight ending with someone sleeping on the couch.

There are snippets of wisdom for both genders, such as the chapter labeled, "Three Sides To Every Story." This includes "his version," "her version" and "the truth." The chapter on respect holds many gems.

The lurking bits of truth are treasures worth the search but watch out for the pitfalls along the way. I found this book best taken in small doses at a time. The CD is an added bonus.
