Rick & Bubba’s Guide to the Almost Nearly Perfect Marriage

Rick Burgess and Bill “Bubba” Bussey, with a lot of help from their friend Martha Bolton, have swung for the fences again with their latest New York Times Best-Seller, Rick & Bubba’s Guide to the Almost Nearly Perfect Marriage. While at first glance it would appear that the last thing this world needs is another offering in the self help category, the “two sexiest fat men alive” bring a fresh, honest, and often humorous look at the guidelines for enjoying a healthy, happy, and long lasting marriage.

As with their previous offerings, the dynamic duo draw from their own life experiences and share with us the good, the bad, and, yes, sometimes the ugly to set forth for us a guidebook on marital behavior principles. It is clear with even a cursory reading of this book that faith is the cornerstone of these two marriages. Within the vignettes of this book, we learn that the foundation of their feelings toward their spouses is grounded in spiritual principles presented in the scriptures.

Rick and Bubba present this nugget of truth as the cement to their success in married life – they have learned to survive. Things will go wrong and your spouse is not perfect (they have the same dilemma). Prince Charming is a fairy tale; and let’s face it, the Stepford Wives were a little creepy.

An easy and entertaining read, everyone could benefit from reading these selected glimpses into the authors’ married history. Men will especially benefit from the long awaited publication of the Book of Blame, the book your wives have used against you from day 2 of your marriage!
