From the Inside Flap:

Praise for The Marriage Makeover:

"An original and provocative approach to the universal dilemma of what to do about the well-being of children in a less-than-wonderful marriage. This book can be of great help to couples who are struggling with these issues."
- Susan Forward, Ph.D. Author of Emotional Blackmail and Toxic In-Laws

"Psychologist Joshua Coleman has the power to single-handedly slow the rate of divorce."
- The Cleveland Plain Dealer

"Before becoming parents, many simply do not appreciate how important the division of household labor is to couple and family well being. Enabling parents to successfully navigate this challenging terrain is what Joshua Coleman's insightful Lazy Husband is all about. I enthusiastically recommend the book to all who want to improve their family lives. "
- Professor Jay Belsky, Director, Institute for the Study of Children, Families and Social Issues, Birkbeck University of London and author of The Transition to Parenthood: How a first child changes a marriage

From the Back Cover:

The Lazy Husband is a hands-on guide to understanding and changing men's attitudes towards domestic work and childcare. By outlining and defining the various types of lazy husbands, Coleman allows women to understand where their husband is coming from. From here, Coleman develops type specific plans for change. Coleman's ultimate goal is to teach women how to motivate their husbands to become better partners and better fathers.
