This is a good faith-based book that uses the metaphor of Ballroom Dancing to offer help with a successful marriage. I found the first six chapters to be especially helpful in solid advice:
- The Metaphor of the Marriage Dance
- Embrace your differences
- Do you want to dance?
- Connect the partners
- Lead with Confidence – Strong ut Gentle
- Follow with Strength
The remaining chapters (7-12) were good, but I found to be more “Sermonizing” than the others, perhaps inspirational, but not as solidly helpful.
Still though it is a good book and I recommend it.
