Ingram

From the Publisher
"A divorce prevention society should be formed to place a copy of this book in every hotel room in Niagara Falls-scratch that, every hotel room in this country. Every wife or husband struggling to say married, especially happily married, should read this book." --Maggie Gallagher, coauthor, The Case for Marriage: Why Married People are Happier, Healthier, & Better Off Financially

"I love this book! If you want to be happily, successfully married, buy it, master it, and it's all you'll every need. While you're at it, buy a copy for every couple you love.

Should Be Required Reading, August 8, 2000
Reviewer: A reader

This book should be required reading for all couples getting married. If only I had read this book first, I could have avoided a lot of the bumps along the marital journey and saved myself and my spouse a lot of grief. Based on sound research and full of excerpts from real couples' lives, this book is now my favorite gift to newlyweds. It gives you great comfort to know that the arguments you and your spouse have occur in all marriages at different times. I highly recommend this to anyone who is looking at making their marriage last for the long haul!


This book saved our marriage!, January 23, 1999
Reviewer: A reader

My husband and I married in our mid thirties thinking we had a lock on good communication skills and knowing we were mature enough to really make this marriage work. Nonetheless, it wasn't long before we were "mired in muck". When a small conflict arose, we found ourselves so caught up in being right and fighting our point to the death that small events escalated into huge issues. We could feel the good things in our relationship slipping away and felt helpless to fix the problem. (This was AFTER reading probably 20 different books on marriage, doing the Barbara D'Angelis program, the Gary Smally Program, attending several couples workshops, etc.). Contemplating calling it quits on our marriage, I happened accross this book, loved it, then went to a PREP workshop. Our marriage is AWESOME. We actually know how to hear and be heard and have the skills to RESOLVE the conflicts. (By the way, note the "I". My spouse hasn't read the book and refused to go to the workshop.) I learned the skills and used them in our marriage and our relationship changed. It even works with kids, in-laws, co-workers.... Yippee!



A Practical Must-Read, December 25, 2003
Reviewer: A reader (Westerville, OH USA)

This is a fabulous book on how to communicate and get along. It is jam-packed with tons of DETAILED examples of good and bad conversations. This is not a book about theoretical relationship issues, but about the common issues that confront all of us. The book gives you detailed, common-sense, practical steps on how to communicate better and get along better. And then it illustrates the concepts heavily, so you know how to put the suggestions into practice.

The book is also very interactive. It gives you many quizzes, questions to answer and exercises - almost like a workbook. There's plenty here for you and your partner to learn, to talk about and then to practice. If you like books that give specific suggestions, samples and ways to apply the concepts directly to your life, you'll love this book.

The book is balanced, non-judgemental, matter-of-fact and not religious at all (despite the chapter on spiritual intimacy). Like many other reviewers on this site, I think I will give this book to friends who are getting married.



A real help, July 14, 2003
Reviewer: girlfriendbooks.com - See all my reviews

After the gown is packed away comes the reality that marriage is hard. How come no one told us? This book contains real strategies for making your marriage stronger. After years of trying to explain to my husband how I felt he sometimes dismissed my feelings, I did a cartwheel after discovering a whole chapter on what the authors call "invalidating" your partner's feelings - one of the most toxic things you can do in a marriage. Well my husband used to do it - a lot. This book opened his eyes - and saved my sanity.
