Product Description (from Amazon.com)
There is a crisis today among Christian men in the area of sexual sin. Wives, girlfriends, and mothers know this and want to help-they just don't know how. Mary Farrar illuminates to women men's innermost feelings, exposes the dichotomy in male/female communication, and shows that women can play an active role in this ongoing battle. There's also advice for single women who want to relate to single men, and mothers of boys will find a strong chapter about the role they play in the healthy sexual development of their sons. With up-to-date psychological research, Reading Your Male is an indispensable resource, equipping a woman to fight wisely and effectively alongside her man in the ongoing struggle against sexual sin.
Although I agree with a number of things in Reading Your Male I must admit that overall I wasn't a huge fan. I found the book to be a little too ... um... traditional for my liking. Farrar seems to be rather anti-feminism and has an extremely conservative bent. There is good information and advice in this book too- we DO need to communicate effectively with our spouse, pornography IS unhealthy... but she takes things a bit too far in my humble opinion. Some of the book seemed a wee bit offensive to me, although I am certain that was not the author's intent. Farrar clearly cares about the subject and writes in a way that conveys that to the reader. I also found the book to be really long. Most of what Farrar said could have been said effectively in FAR fewer pages. This book is clearly geared to the very traditional & conservative Christians amongst us.
