    1. You don't have to be Orthodox to appreciate the sound Torah-based wisdom here. Friedman explains the traditional Jewish ways of intimacy and sexuality that are meant to deepen love and trust between partners. He does this through telling stories that cover the spectrum of life experience, from teenagers who are trying to figure out how far to go . to married couples who want to bring back the spark of intimacy to their lives. Friedman assures us that commitment to a spiritual life means that we [...]


    2. I had to remind myself as I was reading it that this book is written by a very traditional Jewish Rabbi, because it's a gender nightmare. He talks for chapters upon chapters about the importance of respect in relationships and then insists that only men need respect; that women only need love. I am a feminist so I'm sure as you read this you're hearing me scream "WTF?" His message was respect is pivotal but is only for men. A woman's job is to accept love and give love, nothing more.On the flip [...]


    3. "A wonderful book about accepting and valuing one's spouse. If nothing else, the reader can come away realizing that not only can one not change others, but that it is a violation of the spouse's identity and dignity for us to try to change them, as opposed to simply accepting them as they are and supporting their personal growth. Any marriage within any faith could be strengthened by reading this brief, insightful book."


    4. I give this book five stars for originality. The thinking of Mr. Friedman is so traditional and old that it becomes new and radical in his hands. Not that the book doesn't have problems, I would love to edit it and make it better than it is, but still, it contains many nuggets of wisdom that you are not going to hear on Oprah, or even from Dear Sugar. Not just nuggets, whole piles of wisdom nuggets. I read this book because Bob Dylan recommended it. I can see why Dylan, with his vast amount of e [...]


    5. I enjoyed and and learnt a lot from this book. I was able to appreciate the values and lessons this book contains even though I am not a believer myself. A worthwhile read and helpful in understanding, with the purpose of regaining, modesty and intimacy in sexuality.



    6. For me, the book is not limited to applying in marriage but all relationships. The book has solid values. It's an easy read and interesting.



    7. A book about treating your spouse with civility, and the dualistic concepts of modesty and intimacy from an Orthodox Jewish perspective.
