Do You Really Want To Know Why I Am Not At Home?: A Plea For Change
Xlibris Corporation, Aug 12, 2011 - Family & Relationships - 256 pages
This book was written from the REAL perspective of everyday men and women that struggle with finding peace in their home. No clinical sounding or Doctoral thesis was necessary to discuss what real people like you and I need to know. Stop paying the bills for drama to live in your home. A PLEA FOR CHANGE is here. Long time friends and Co-Authors Gregory Wright and Aaron Cox look at the real issues that divide men and women in today’s relationships. They feel society has conditioned us how to think, act and look. They also believe mass media ploys are becoming more main stream than family values. The hearts of men and women in this society have been suppressed by emotional thinking. They ask the question “Is society REALLY interested in your well being and quality of life”? Is it true to say our emotions drive our wants, but needs are attached to the heart? Our chapters will also identify how our wants have taken priority and our needs have been put off until another day that will come too late, if at all. Please don’t be offended or take anything personally, we had to keep it REAL. Along with some laughs this book guarantees to put you back on track for what’s REALLY important and living the American dream and not the American theme. Do you REALLY want to know why I am not at home exposes key issues to why we REALLY don’t want to be home.

Authors Aaron J. Cox and Gregory L. Wright write from experience. They do not claim to have degrees in psychology or that they are renowned therapists. Instead they are individuals who have faced bad relationships and survived. The titles of the chapters worried me at first. I was afraid this book would be slanted to the side of the male. But nothing could be farther from the truth. In fact the authors ask the reader to take “inventory of you, your partner and your relationship as you read each chapter.” Their book is easy to read and to the point and incorporates a Christian element too. I agree with the authors when they say that a woman cannot respect a man she can walk all over. Another thing to remember is that both men and women need some time to be alone. Neither men nor women like or need to be bossed around, told how to think, have decisions made for them, or volunteered for projects.
"Do You Really Want to Know Why I Am Not at Home" is a non-technical approach to marriage, relationships and communication. The two authors, Cox and Wright, offer excellent insight into relationships and marriage. I can condense their book into one word: RESPECT. They offer examples of men who are not respected because they allow their wives to make all the decisions, to tell them what to do and when to do it. While some of their examples may seem humorous, in reality they are rather shocking and sad. "Do You Really Want to Know Why I Am Not at Home" would make a great gift for a couple before they marry. Marriage counselors and pre-marriage Counselors should consider adding this book to the required or suggested reading list. The index at the end is useful and practical, and readers in general will love Gregory Wright and Aaron Cox's layman's "tell it like it is" style of writing.
