Book Review - This Is Your Brain in Love

This book is an easy and fun read. The tests for each type of love are short and easy. You get great information along with great practical application. The applications are not a quick fix but it appears using them over time will greatly help any marriage. One of the best things I learned from this book is how the Jewish culture views marriage and sex. It will open your eyes up to the fact that sometimes your culture does not have it right.

There are many stories of marriage life from his counseling sessions. These real life examples help you recognize the love type of you and your spouse. From just reading the stories, I could almost pinpoint what love type I was and my wife was.

The one negative thing about the book was a feeling of it being an advertisement. This is scattered throughout the book so it became a bit of a distraction. I am all for giving credit where credit is due for an idea or concept but I feel it was a little too much. If you can get by this one distraction the book has great potential to change your marriage for the better.

Who Knew I Like History - (my wife did)

A friend of mine lent me a book about the 12 day chase of John Wilkes Booth. So a few chapters into the book I realized that I like history. While I am reading some other books right now, I figure I would do a book review of Manhunt: The 12-Day Chase for Lincoln's Killer by James L. Swanson.

This book not only goes into great length about the chase of Lincoln’s killer, it gives the reader insight of other key people during this time frame. Mr. Swanson has done some amazing research into Lincoln, Booth and the rest of the key people.

If I had read this in history class, I would have a whole new approach to learning history. Do not miss out on one of the most well written books on Lincoln’s killer. This book has launched me in reading other books about history.
