great for couples in love and in trouble

by Neal Itzkowitz LPC on 11/28/2007

As a therapist I have recommended this book frequently. I have attended Dr Gottman's training on marital communication and this book is very good at summing up much of his research. This book identifies behaviors that are helpful in developing and maintaining a quality relationship. It also identifies the behaviors causing relationships to falter and their "antidotes" to repair them. Read More

Good read about marriage

on 8/15/2013

A very reasonable as well as scientific approach to marriage is shown in this book. Many marriage oriented books offer logical short term band-aids (e.g., focusing on perceived Mars or Venus gender differences, communicating better, smoothing over conflicts) that make for a provocative read & admirable goals, but by and large fail in the long-run to resuscitate shaky marriages.

Annotation After decades of studying both successful and splitting married couples, John Gottman has distilled his findings into basic precepts for success, explaining how and why they work. Rejecting traditional assumptions about the things that make a marriage work, Gottman cites "emotional intelligence" as the bedrock of marital success. He turns his empirical findings into practical, specific advice for those in search of a long-term, close partnership. He offers plenty of quizzes and questionnaires to help determine the chances of making a relationship lasting and satisfying, and he details a concrete, seven-point plan for enhancing these odds. Filled with humor and written in a highly accessible, friendly style, this guide will show couples the way to beat the divorce statistics and strive toward optimal success in making their marriages emotionally fruitful.
