Review: Love & Respect Workbook by Emerson Eggerichs

Love & Respect Workbook: The Love She Most Desires; The Respect He Desperately Needs - Emerson Eggerichs

This workbook doesn't so much ask questions that add to the reading of the companion book as it gives lengthy restatements of what the author has already stated in the chapters and then asks the reader, "So, what did you think of this section." Each session has far too many verbose questions, that turn this study into a chore to do rather than a joy to look forward to. The first session that explains the idea behind love & respect was interesting, but the rest of the book that delved deeper (sort of) was just repetitive and difficult to get through.


Not to mention, if Emerson referred to himself in the third person one more time . . . . .

If you have a troubled marriage and do not understand how to speak to your spouse or understand their point of view, this book may help. For our small group of happily married couples, it was boring and repetitious.
