    My review While I still have about 1 4 left to read, I have some mixed feelings about this book This book does have some very helpful advice and tips for improving a marriage But some of the book tended towards putting men and women into categories and generalizations Secrets 7 9 were very hard for me to get through Secret 7 deals with birth order, secret 8 deals with personality types, and secret 9 deals with life mantras I struggled with these chapters because I didn t feel like myself or My review While I still have about 1 4 left to read, I have some mixed feelings about this book This book does have some very helpful advice and tips for improving a marriage But some of the book tended towards putting men and women into categories and generalizations Secrets 7 9 were very hard for me to get through Secret 7 deals with birth order, secret 8 deals with personality types, and secret 9 deals with life mantras I struggled with these chapters because I didn t feel like myself or my husband fit very well into just one particular category It was very hard for me to relate to those chapters when I didn t see how those birth orders, personality types, or life mantras applied to each of us.Secrets 1 to 6 and 10 had some very good information and things from which my marriage will benefit They still had some generalizations and could get a little repetitive but overall, I enjoyed these chapters I plan to have my husband read some parts of this book so we can both benefit from it and work to improve our marriage.I received this book for free from Revell All opinions expressed are my own
