The textbook is well informative but certain parts seem to be more biased by contrasting men and women in a variety of things and seems to constructed, but the technical portions of different love styles, dating concepts, marriage concepts and other things were very well in precision on simplicity. I’m thankful for the book I’ve brought but it does raise question a little, that maybe I should have reviewed my options a little more but in all I do think the Marriage and Family: The Quest for Intimacy is a good book to possess just think there could be more improvement and less biased propaganda and something not seeming as its from feminist studies but more equilibrium without the assumption as men are more so batters or brutes, I’ve also notice that theirs a great deal proportion of accusations that make it seem like almost every thing is rape, assault or molestation (wasn’t feeling those sections as much).

Must Read for All who have not been married yet !

This book goes well beyond what is required as a textbook for one’s college class…..this book should be read before any one gets married to learn about what everyone is afraid to talk about….the differences between men and women and also how culture plays into their decision on who the marry.

This was a good book to rent for a class. The information was current and really does help with learning about marriage and family. If you are single or even married, you will learn how to make your relationship stronger by reading this book. There is something for every couple here.

I like the information that is in the book. I rented the book for school & the book has a bunch of writing & places that are highlighted from other people so that was disappointing

For a textbook, this book is really fascinating. I’m glad I bought my own copy (I usually rent text books) so I could underline and write in it. I’ll be keeping this one as a resource.

I love this textbook!

I have never loved a textbook before. This book is just fantastic! The best chapters by far are the ones about power and conflict as well as communication. I will certainly be keeping it and reference it often.

What a boring read!

The arrival was slow but that’s my fault for selecting standard shipping. The content of the book is just downright boring! I can’t wait for this class to be over!
