  1. So if you included Ken Nair’s die to self book for men on women, (Discovering the Mind of a Women), why did I not see a book for women on men such as “The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands” by Dr. Laura Schlessinger? Or better yet, Biblically based “Love and Respect” by Dr. Emerson Eggerichs, which both can read and discuss together and for which workbooks, etc. are available?
