Summary

Laura Doyle's marriage was in trouble. After five years her husband had become distant. He seemed checked out of their relationship, preferring watching TV to making love. There were frequent fights that ended with tense silences and even threats of divorce. Marriage counseling actually made their problems worse. Each session seemed to reinforce the feeling that she and her husband were just too far apart.
Desperate to avoid divorcing the man she loved, Laura tried something different. Rather than consulting with experts or professionals, she simply started talking to women who'd been happily married for more than 15 years. What she discovered shocked her: Everything she had heard in marriage counseling was wrong. Laura realized that there are basic truths that can help women maintain loving, intimate marriages.
After seeing her own marriage transform, Laura set out to help other women do the same. In this audiobook you'll learn Laura's Six Intimacy Skills, which have been used by over 150,000 women who have transformed their previously unhappy marriages into blissful unions.

Stop EVERYTHING and buy this book. Now!

Would you listen to First, Kill All the Marriage Counselors again? Why?

Are you kidding me?! Absolutely! Like six or seven times in a row. No joke. It's that good.

This book contains the formula we've been looking for on how to have a crazy happy relationship and make your man genuinely fall wildly in love with you.

She gives you immediately actionable skills to go from a cold war relationship to feeling giddy and the object of your man's insatiable infatuation! The author is not only a Relationship-Bliss-Genius she is ridiculously funny, feisty and warm. You feel like she gets you and is 100% on your side while giving you the simple steps to stop hurting ...all while cracking you up along the ride. Um, can you tell I love this book?

What was one of the most memorable moments of First, Kill All the Marriage Counselors?

How EASY and FAST these skills work. It is nuts. And how happy you feel when you use them. It's like, wait a minute....everybody wins here?!!!

What about Laura Doyle’s performance did you like?

Laura Doyle doesn't "read" this to you....its like she is your best friend/mentor on the other end of the phone making you laugh while she drops wisdom bombs on you that you can immediately use in your real relationship!

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

How to make your man CRAZY in LOVE with you in 30 seconds or less.

Any additional comments?

If you are hurting in your relationship or don't have one, or don't feel over-the-moon giddy in love do yourself the biggest favor ever buy this book now and read/listen immediately. It will change your life!

Good tips but mostly an advertisement.

Author has a website that she plugs throughout the book - then the website appears to be a general dead end unless you hand over some more money for relationship coaching. I find that annoying. Talk about your website in the prologue or acknowledgements, but for goodness' sake don't tell me throughout the book to go there to meet wives who are like-minded and then require that I take part in one of your coaching sessions first. What's the point of that other than to just be greedy. A book should be a book, not an ad for something else. Or, give the book away and charge people for the website.

Nothing in this book is really earth shattering or new. Be nice to your man. Think before speaking. Be happy for what you have. I'm not a controlling woman so I would imagine this book really wasn't for me though. Would have been nice to know that - and the bit about the website - before i spent the credit.

Narration was annoying and chit chatty. I would not pay to hear this person narrate another book. I struggled to listen but I was really committed to finishing in case there were some nuggets buried in the book.
