Honestly, I'd never heard of Rick & Bubba when I ordered this book from Thomas Nelson to review. What I was expecting was a really funny book on marriage. I love humor! But not the kind in this book.
Rick & Bubba are evidently syndicated radio personalities who used that huge platform to become authors, and New York Times best sellers at that. The book's humor was very "redneck." Lots of hunting and fishing jokes, and even a couple of "pull my finger" references were made. Women of course always get lost, and have to be apologized to for everything, even the dog tracking mud in the house while the man is at work.
Honestly, I gave up about 1/2 way through the book. But then, I decided to finish it in good conscience so I could review it, and order another book. I don't know if I had lowered my expectations, or if the book got better in the second half, but something happened.
The chapters on respect, date night, and protecting your mates honor from negative friends resonated with me. And the chapter on surviving the loss of a child (which Rick & his wife did) brought me to another level of respect for him.
The truth is, this isn't my kind of book. But Rick & Bubba seem to be good Christian men who wrote a book that will probably be enjoyable for the folks that listen to their radio show and enjoy it. My best wishes to them both, and my sincere condolences to Rick and Sherri on the loss of their son.
