Letters to Karen book. Karen Shedd, away at college, had recently become engaged. Charlie Shedd wrote a series of letters to his daughter in response to her question, "Daddy, how can I keep him loving me forever?" Kind of a sappy question, I guess, but I think it turned out to be a pretty nice book. As I said with his other book, Letters to Phillip, it does read as though it were writ I couldn't find the English version of this book on Goodreads, so this will have to do. I thought this book had several gems of wisdom in it from a fatherly and seemingly Christian point of view.

This book has many useful tips for a man interested at being a better husband. However, this book was written in a time when women stayed at home, spent much time in the kitchen, and men worked and were the head of the home. At the time this book was written, roles between men and women were very defined . Nowadays, roles are very different and not as clearly defined - this is probably the reason why marriage is not as enduring now as it once was. Presently, the confusion of our daily roles and responsibilities are blurred by ambiguity and frustration often eats away at peoples hearts. Since the "equal rights movement", woman's view of herself and her goals have been greatly shifted from her family to herself. Where does this leave man... Marriage for a woman is a big dream of her wedding day but then what comes after...Couples are often not prepared for the work and toil a marriage demands. This book is a good reminder of where we need to be in a marriage, but it does not really bridge the gap between then and now. It does not sympathize with the plight of the modern marriage. But it does offer a glimpse at what a strong marriage is like. It offers the reader a model to aspire. Letters to Karen is recommended for females, as this book is recommended for males. It is an easy read and is worth the time.

Great follow up to "Letters to Karen." I read through once. Both are entertaining. Then I re-read them about 3 pages a night highlighting phrases and making notes in the margins. =Stuff I needed to work on... Then I passed them to my wife to read. She made notes too.

Our marriage is 39 years young and our love for one another continues to grow. =Not bad for 2 kids from alcoholic families who didn't have role models, huh? :) Charlie W. Shedd and our church had a great influence on our relationship. We include thanks for the blessing of Charlie's words in our prayers.

This book is different than Letters to Philip, so don't expect it to be its companion manual on "How to Treat a Man". It's more about how to be a truly great wife, how to love your role as a wife, and how to nurture a marriage that grows more rich and fulfilling every year. The advice has a feminine focus, but husbands would do well to read it too. It's a little dated by the old-fashioned roles of the bread winner and the home maker, but the core advice is so timeless that it transcends this social context. We can have non-traditional roles in the world but still celebrate and relish the wondrous intrinsic differences between men and women. The book is honest and straightforward about all facets of marriage, including sex. He is not shy about the importance of deep intimacy and mutual sexual fulfillment, or a wife's resplendent role as her husband's lover. I think the best summation of the advice is to talk, talk, talk, and listen, listen, listen. The moment you sweep something under the rug is the moment you start drifting apart, which is a slow and painful death for a marriage.

P.S. I'm a 50 year old lady engaged to the man of my dreams. This advice was most welcome.

Bought "Letters to Phillip" while on a marriage retreat [=JUST A 'TUNE UP,' OR SO I THOUGHT!] Letters to Karen was a logical second read. I read through once. Both are entertaining. Then I re-read them about 3 pages a night highlighting phrases and making notes in the margins. =Stuff I needed to work on... Then I passed them to my wife to read. She made notes too.

Heard of this book from a friend as one of the best relationship/marriage books he'd read and recommends it for all men to read. I would agree. Straight from a father to his fixing to get married son, absolutely love his letters about how to treat your wife. Very simple, yet profound in how it can change your marriage just by treating her right, and simply loving her in simple consistent ways! Highly recommend and a great price too :)

I'm a religious pluralist, and even though this book was written by a Christian pastor, I found it (and still find it) extremely helpful in married life. It's inspirational, informative (esp. about men and how their minds work), and full of great advice.

I own multiple copies of this book. Why? My father gave me this book when I left home at 18. I will do the same for each of my daughters. It might be the greatest advice my father ever gave me, and I want to pass that on to the next generation.

The only people I think it might offend are narrow-minded feminists. People who don't want to recognize that men and women are not just anatomically different, but different in how their minds work, how they process information. If you're not able to see the DIFFERENCES between yourself and your spouse, then you definitely don't want this book.

Although this book is geared towards women, it has been helpful for me as a man to understand this perspecive. Why read books like this? It offers principles and perspective that will make your marriage and relationships better. Either it is getter better or getting stagnant.

Similar to "Letters To Philip", it is written as a series of letters that are filled with principles that can only help your marriage (or soon-to-be marriage). Invest on your most important relationship and read books like this. The return on investment (ROI) is priceless and worthwhile.
