Reviewed by Lori M for Readers' Favorite

Men and women can really mess up relationships, can’t they? Sometimes it is an inability to understand the opposite gender and sometimes it is unrealistic expectations. Whatever the cause, authors Roy and Nazira Barry answer the question about whether finding Mr. or Mrs. Right is possible or whether they are an endangered species, in their book of the same name. The Barrys are eminently qualified to discuss this subject both because they have advanced degrees in sociology and psychology and because they’ve been married to each other for 13 years. Before my husband and I married five years ago, we took a class on marriage that covered the topics similar to those in this book and I think that it has made us much more successful.

There is a wealth of information provided in “Mr./Mrs. Right: An Endangered Species?” including communication, “sex”pectations, spirituality, and stress. One line that jumps out from the book is this: “To attract the ‘right’ person, one must often begin with being the ‘right’ person.” The list on how to interpret nonverbal behavior is very useful when dealing with quiet people because their body language speaks volumes. I highly recommend this book to both new couples as well as those who have been together for a while as a relationship booster. Even though I read it all the way through, I want to go back again and take the quizzes that have been included in this book. The quizzes and exercises are a good means to assess a relationship. In the back of the book, there is also a list of internet sites that might be worth visiting for more information.

I fully agree with Lori M. This book is actually an excellent source of relationship management skills. It is also written and layout in a very comprehensive manner. You really don't need a college degree to substantially benefit from this manuel.

The book, Mr./Ms. Right: An Endangered Species is an excellent and helpful tool for anyone in a relationship or contemplating one. The above review echoes many of my opinions as well. Before my husband and I got married, we not only read the book but "studied" it diligently. It helped improve our communication, respect, tolerance, and admiration for each other. My husband and I also attended a 1-day seminar that hosted them as the main speakers. It was awesome! Very engaging, humorous, and memorable. These authors know their "stuff" and are exceptional at what they do. I love the quizzes! So much practical and realistic information is in this book, that no one will read it and be the same.

I am truly delighted with this book. Great exercises, worksheets, and very easy to read. I like that anyone can read and understand the content; even a high school kid. Kids these days need a lot of guidance and this book delves into sex, communication, STD's and so much more. These authors need to be recognized on a national level.
