All relationships suffer from communication issues but marriages, in particular, appear to suffer greatly from this.  Dr. Eggerich's book, Love and Respect, was the first book I read from him.  For me, it was a real eye opener on explaining the different communication styles between men and women.  What women say and men hear and vice versa was true to form but being able to read about the oppositve sex really allowed me a different perspective on my own marriage.

The  basic rules still apply that husband's view their wive's actions as being disrespectful while women react to not getting the love they want.  It's a vicious cycle that has to be broken in order to enjoy the fruits of marriage.  Real life excerpts also helps to show how practicing to avoid the "crazy cycle" also adds credibility to the ideas touted in this book.  Where the books makes complete logical sense, it also shows how hard it is to break that cycle which is why I think the book is good because it's not one of those, 'read me, follow it and all is perfect.' 

It's a very practical book that needs to be reread frequently to reinforce the teachings.  I would recommend it to anyone in a relationship as it really does provide helpful insight in understanding the rational behind the actions of the opposite sex.
