7 Ways to be Her Hero is a book written to men, by a man, in a way only men understand. The author thought about calling the book, Not to Suck as a Husband, but figured it would not sell much, frankly because women buy more books than men do.
The title pretty much says it all, Fields talks about 7 ways to be your wife’s hero. He is funny, straight forward, and blunt is ways guys will appreciate. Ladies, this is not a book for you to read–you will probably think he is rude. Which, may intrigue guys to pick this up all the more!
Would I recommend this book? Yes, I would, but do not tell your wife you are reading this (kidding)! It was a great book. Often times we men wish we knew how to be a better husband, but struggle with knowing how or what we can do differently. Doug Fields address it and gives us a playbook, essentially.
It is an easy read. For men who do not like to read, this will not be that difficult for you. With the 7 things Fields list, there is a follow up to each chapter. So, if he is talking about listening to her, the follow up chapter will address if she is actually the one who needs to listen and what to do about it. Regardless, he writes and encourages men to step up and be the leader who loves his wife.
This book is not only for married folks, but for newly weds. I may purchase a copy to give to friends or family who get married.
Now, if you are a woman, should you purchase this for your spouse? The author did change the book title just to be attractive to you. Yes, pick it up. I want you to listen to me though. Do not think this book is salvation to have the perfect man. He is trying. This may help, but instead of mainly focusing on how much you think he needs to improve, humbly ask him how you can demonstrate love to him expecting nothing in return.
If you pick this up, perhaps just place it somewhere he will see it and say nothing. Or perhaps say something like, “I heard good things about this from others (maybe emphasis a man so he does not feel gained up upon), thought you may enjoy it.” Do not pressure him to read it.
