My opinion: written by women for men. A little one sided. If your a dude buying a book for yourself - it was eye opening and surprisingly did vindicate a number of my wifes statements which made me certain I was being manipulated. (supporting documentation for things like my doing the dishes "turned her on").
The fact that I bought it and listened to it (and called my wife every night while travelling to discuss the subject matter) was beneficial and gave me an unemotional platform to suck some information out of her on her mental mechanics.
I think it meant something to her that with our impending baby that I cared enough to listen to a book on our marriage. She even laughed when I called to tell her that the three female authors (who are a little short on the male perspective) were driving me nuts and I wanted to throw my iPod out the car window.
There was about 45 minutes I was near throwing my iPod out the window of my car as I listened to three women who just couldn't agree with each other more. So brace yourself. Half of the recording is them repeating how many women attested to them that men "just don't get it".
In the end I decided that it was smart that as a man I get the female perspective. I would not suggest listening to this if you are a woman. The male viewpoint may not be represented enough for it to be of value to you. As a matter of fact it could be a detriment. Had my wife bought it for me it would not have had the same affect.
Overall, I did learn a few things and enjoyed using the subject matter to engage my wife and enjoyed relating a number of the topics to her.

What would have made Babyproofing Your Marriage better?
Less sexist babbling. This book has very little to do with suggestions, recommendations, or useful advise. Its more a collaboration of pissed off bitchy wives looking to vent their frustrations.
What do you think your next listen will be?
Nothing by this author/authors.
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Babyproofing Your Marriage?
I would burn the book/tape.
Any additional comments?
Don't waste your time.
