Living in Love by James & Betty Robison was a little bit of a let down. The book was not what I was expecting. While it had some valuable information in the book, I feel that it should have been titled Communication is the Key to Living in Love.
The majority of the book was about communication. I do feel that communication in a marriage relationship is important, however, there are other factors that can contribute to a successful marriage. Expecting the book to address several of those factors instead of just one should not be too much to ask.
Had they titled the book differently, I might feel more favorably toward the book, but I was not really wanting a book just about communication. Each chapter of the book attempted to address different factors that affect marriage, but ended up discussing communication.
Living in Love is a well written book. The book was written clearly and concisely and it gave equal time to both James and Betty's opinions, but by not covering a wide range of topics important in a marriage (I feel the Robisons made an attempt to do that, but fell short) it left me wanting more.
If you are wanting a book that deals with communication in marriage, this just might be the book for you. If you are wanting a book that deals with a variety of marriage topics, keep looking.
I received this book for free from Blogging for Books, but the review and opinions are my own.
