...like all books of its kind, most of the benefits it may bring you could be had with a little common sense and good communication ahead of each decision deadline.

My wife-to-be and I are almost finished with our wedding planning, and while we did have some rough moments (even though our wedding will be very small and simple compared to 90% of the people out there - less than 80 people, no country clubs or hotels to deal with, no ridiculous $25,000+ tab (save the money for your children's education folks!)), I came to realize that almost every bad day was a result of bad communication.

It boils down to this: men and women express themselves (even the same idea sometimes) in very different ways. Not to mention a bride's motivations during planning are often different than the groom's motivations. If you're just starting out, you could get this book and a dozen others, and get some truly good advice. Or you could save the money and do this:

Sit down with each other, alone, in a non-distracting place and find out what is most important to each of you about this wedding and the days leading up to it. If you are honest, you will learn something about yourself, and not just your spouse. If you say what you think the other person wants to hear or what's diplomatic, you're in for some unpleasant days as the planning gets under way.

Take all day if you need to. Turn your phones off, get away from your computer, and really think it through. What is important to you? What is not? What is valuable in a wedding, what is filler and eye candy? Who are your real friends, who are people that really don't belong at your wedding? All of these are important questions and just the tip of the iceberg. Make no mistake: if you're honest with each other, there may even be some tears or raised voices before your discussion is over, but it will be worth it.

Until you each know what is really important to your future spouse and why, your wedding planning will be a giant headache and will stress you out right up until the wedding bells ring. Think it through, talk it through, THEN plan, based on the compromises you made during your discussion. And if you don't think you should have to compromise, you shouldn't be getting married. ;-)

Here's a surprisingly humorous, yet helpful book that's not just another "to-do" book.

It's actually a personal story that's happens to include all the necessary lists, tips and advice that every groom will (desperately) need.

I say desperately because the information in this book is something you can learn a lot less painfully from someone else's experience. The greatest benefit for a man is learning that, in the end, it isn't about one thing that'll save the day...the "answer" is much simpler -- by helping out a little, the payback will be a lot. By finishing the book early enough in one's own wedding planning, men will get the benefit of Craig's missteps and prevent missing out doing the right thing for their big day (which isn't just one day, but the start of many days to come).

I'm sure that a lot of enlightened brides-to-be can find tremendous value in this book, too. She'll get a glimpse inside the mind of a marrying man and find out what her mate is actually thinking about...without having to ask him. While groom-oriented, the book is very bride-friendly, so women might get a kick out of the book as well. And maybe be able to take a whole new approach at getting their mates to participate more.

What I found particularly interesting was that the "backbone" of the book is a complete story. Not just anecdotes, leaving you wanting more. The reader gets to experience one groom's world from start to finish. And the story is really an everyman's story which makes it very relatable.

This is one of the best designed books on the market today which makes it an easy read for almost any guy. Men aren't typically big buyers of relationship book so it's a great gift for women to give to their guys in their lives whether it's a fiancé, friend, son, brother, etc..

Weddings are stressful to all involved. This is a how to survive planning the wedding when you are the groom. Craig Michaels has written a real winner. In the midst of planning his own wedding Craig Michaels has taken time to write an instruction handbook for grooms. He uses his own experiences to warn...help other men. Mr. Michaels writing style is humorous and interesting. He manages to look at the mundane details and laugh about them.

Every groom needs to know his financial responsibilities. The groom pays for the: "Marriage license, Officiant's fee, Brides' bouquet, Boutonnieres and corsages for groom's family and groomsmen, Bride's engagement and wedding rings, Gifts for groomsmen, Gift for bride, Tuxedo, and Honeymoon." Who think to inform the groom of these responsibilities? Everyone just assumes that he already knows this. Included are money saving tips.

Mr. Michaels even includes tips on how to tie a bowtie. And key body measurements for your tux. His suggestions for gifts for the groomsmen include: beer of the month club, Ski lift tickets and Massage certificates.

Craig shares the antics "Couple's Shower" and the "Bachelor Party." He discusses the pressure he felt when he procrastinated on his to-do list. He seems to have enjoyed both.

Suddenly it hits him "time is running out!" "It's clear that showing up to the wedding isn't enough. My opinion matters. That's sweet. Time to give Deb my undivided attention. She deserves it." It's time to discuss all those things Craig has been avoiding, "DJ, Videographer, Photographer, Food, drinks, limos, infrastructure and talk.

Craig's biggest fear was dancing. Deb, his fiancée, is pleased but surprised that he actually books lessons. Craig manages to learn a basic box step and does not harm Deb when he violently spins her across the room.

An important to do that most men wouldn't think of is to dump things before your households merge. Among the things Craig suggests discarding are, porn, suggestive photos of yourself, blow up furniture, blow up roommates, and everything in your refrigerator.

The BEATTITUDES for dealing with in-laws are great. Be patient, be supportive, be involved, be diplomatic, and be aware. Don't forget that your parents have opinions and feelings also. Then there's your wife to be, you need to please her also.

I found this book funny and interesting. I have two sons getting married this year. I think both need a copy of this book. This book is needed. Much is written for the bride, books that tell her what to do and when to do it and how to do it. But this is the first helpful book I've seen for grooms. Mr. Michaels, well done!
