In their first book, Dr. Haltzman and his coauthor Theresa Foy DiGeronmio outlined a recipe for men about growing a happy marriage: treat marriage with the same sense of purpose, resolve, and single-minded devotion that they have for their job. Although that workplace formula works well for men, an entirely different set of criteria resonate with women. In The Secrets of Happily Married Women, Dr. Haltzman tells us stories from real women who are happy in their relationships. These women know how to get more out of their partners by doing less, by not trying so hard to make men perfect, not dragging them to couples therapy, not expecting them to think or behave like a woman. These are women from Dr. Haltzman's clinical practice and culled from thousands of contributors to his Web site www.HappilyMarriedWomen.com. They have learned to understand how men really work and tap into men's powerful hard-wired desire to please women and "be a better man."...

    This book is a little on the light side and is very traditional (women need to get used to the idea of doing most of the housework, women who work and earn 1/3 of household income or less are happier than those who work and earn the same amount of money or more than their husbands, etc.) Also, right in the first chapter he declares, "Men need to be right and be in control" but does not back up exactly what he means by that. The only anecdote that accompanies that statement is about a husband and wife's disagreement about which sport their son should play. The wife realized that she should give in because this was an issue her husband had extremely strong feelings about. The author's consolation to wives is that generally husbands do not care about many day-to-day household issues (ex. paint colors). Not that helpful. There are some useful parts of the book-I liked the quiz to figure out a husband's nature and the advice in the final chapter about what gives general happiness (friends, exercise, being involved in things outside of job and home, and spirituality).Overall his advice can be summed up with "You attract more bees with honey than vinegar" (means compliment rather than dwell on the negative), have plenty of sex and flirt, accept most of the responsibility for housework and children, talk simply and directly to one's husband, and work on your own general happiness.

    This is the first book about marriage that I read. I think it is a good start and I feel more ready to marriage.

    If this books seems simple, that's because it is!!! Men are simple creatures (in general)...they don't have too much to say and they don't dwell on things! I appreciated the biological evidence the author highlighted to explain why men have a harder time communicating. This book just made sense to me and was a very easy read!I will be buying my own copy to keep on the shelf to read again from time to time to help remind me of why my husband does the things he does! I also think this is a great book for children of divorced who have never seen what a healthy, happy marriage looks like. The author talks about things that are 'normal', that I was beginning to think meant trouble...so it was quite comforting!

    I think this book was pretty helpful to me. A lot of it made perfect sense and really spelled out for me how to communicate better, in ways I've never read in any other book. Since reading it, I find myself thinking before I speak to my husband and considering if it's helpful or not. Is now the time to bring up that subject? And if so, how can I fraze it in a way he'll be receptive to? I also realized women talk too much and need to get to the point when talking to men, especially when I'm asking him for help. They don't need to hear the reasoning behind why you need the help, they just need to know exactly what it is you need them to do. Overall, I thought it was a good book.

    There seemed to be less substance to this book than to the companion book with advice for husbands. I felt the author, being male, was much more insightful in his advice for husbands. The advice in this book is not bad, he dwells on two items - communication & the physical side of marriage - affection/sex/exercise. Perhaps the nature of the beast makes this a less compelling book - women naturally work harder at making a marriage work. They are generally more intuitive (as discussed in the book) and therefore know what to do. On the other hand, reading this book does make one want to work harder on the areas of a marriage that are important to most husbands, so it's worth reading.

    Haltzman bases his theory on the biological differences between men and women. While much of his advice is solid, the writing comes off at times as chauvinistic and at times as belittling to men. Overall, it's worth a read; You're likely to find some tidbit that can be applied to your own situation.

    A down to earth view with practical tips. You can definately tell it was written by a guy, but it's engaging, entertaining and informative. Am planning on trying some of these "secrets" and see how it goes :)
