    Don't let the title fool you...

    This book gives us simple straight forward strategies for building the kind of intimate relationship most of us can only imagine - regardless of whether or not you are in a traditional marriage, living together, straight or gay. Imagine a relationship in which you can be yourself... a partnership in which you can speak your truth without causing harm...imagine sharing a level of intimacy that allows you to grow in love - for yourself, for your partner, for your world. A relationship that actually raises you and your partner to a higher level of counsciousness. There is no psycho-babble or magic bullet in this book - rather Linda and Charlie Bloom give us concrete examples of how to do partnership better. They present us with ways to share, show us how to increase trust, how to lean into each others differences, how to disagree without leaving each other bloody. These examples, while simple, are often not easy. It becomes clear that improving a relationship requires both commitment and work. By sharing their personal relationship issues, as well as their clients', we can see that the Blooms have practiced what they preach - so we don't ever feel like we're being lectured - it becomes more a case of -- look, we made these mistakes and we'd like to offer you some ways to do it better. Linda and Charlie Bloom have raised the bar on the concept of what a marriage can be - but in their book they've given us the tools to help us begin to up-level our most intimate relationship and turn it into the kind of partnership that most of us deeply desire.

    Before I bought this book, I believed I was marrying the wrong man. We argued all the time, blow out fights were our middle names.
    This book has completely changed my mind by with the short relatable lessons it provides. I now understand that not only am I marrying the right man, but we both have the power an ability to create a long lasting, loving and respectful relationship, flaws and all. We will still argue, but now, we're strapped with the tools and knowledge to react differently. GREAT book.

    Excellent book for any couple

    This is an amazing book for any type of marrige. I love the fact that every chapter is short making it great for quick reference. It's written to make anyone feel like it's written about them. It's really helped me understand and appreciate my marriage. I would suggest this book to any and every couple.

    Advice from a wise couple

    The Bloom's first book (I hope they write more) is made up of 101 short but profound chapters each of which contains an anecdote taken from their own marriage or a couple they've worked with. It's like getting advice from a wise old couple that has been though it all, and learned what works and what doesn't. They have helped clients in difficult situations and they themselves been through periods of closeness and distance, infidelity, breast cancer, deaths of parents and a beloved child, and have come out with a passionate, and intimate connection that gets better with time. No easy answers but lots of wise compassionate help.
