This book has been a blessing from God! It has convicted me, opened my eyes, educated me, and completely changed my perception of my wife.
For so long I have had it all wrong in my dealings with my wife, and this book has allowed me to understand her in ways I can't begin to describe.
Many times we as men have baggage of our own that we bring into our marriage. After time fear begins to dictate our behavior and pride begins to tear our lives apart. Misunderstanding one another becomes the norm. Fear turns to bitterness and skepticism leads the way to a broken marriage.
This book will cast away all fears concerning your marriage, change your heart concerning your wife, and ultimately change your life for the better.
If you really want to understand your wife and have the intimacy most dream of-get this book!

This book was recommended reading on a group study I was doing ... and it turned out to be a really great resource book for an upcoming, unexpected, unplanned marriage counseling session. A great tool!

I thought this book was right on target. If only more men would read this book and try to understand the special needs of their wives, their marriage would be enhanced more deeply.

I bought this book for my husband. We've been separated for 3 years. I prayed for the Lord to bless him while reading it, open his eyes, and change his heart. I have no idea what will happen, or if he'll even READ it, it's in God's hands now.PS: I've read several chapters myself, and think it's an EXCELLENT book.God Bless!

This book saved my marriage of 22 years.My wife filed for divorce and hated my guts.(she said so)I changed as a result of reading the book."If only He Knew" help me to understand by wife's needs, desires and that men and women are wired totally different. Understanding those differences is the key to the happiest marriage possible. I learned how to love my wife the way she needed to be loved, and how to love her in such a way that it made her feel like she was the most important person in my life. (she really was-I just didn't know how to express it). This book opened my eyes to all the things I was doing wrong in our marriage and relationship. Just about every page was like opening a page to my life as it had been--all the negative and critical things I had been inflicting upon my wife and causing her unbelievable pain and emotional scarring in the process.She has told me and her friends that our marriage and relationship has been better in the last 15 years than it ever was prior to my reading "If Only He Knew"
