    The Help Your Relationship is Looking For

    A very thorough and easy-to-use guide. After just the first few chapters, my partner and I were already communicating much more cleanly and breaking some negative patterns in our relationship. The book is set up so you can pick which chapters are relevant to your own situation, with short explanations of the topic at the beginning of each chapter, followed by a short explanation of the academic schools of thought behind it, and then the theory and application. There are easy-to-follow exercises with each of the chapters to help start you on the path to better skills with your partner.

    Take the time to read this book and listen to what it says and you'll be sure to create a healthier relationship with your partner.

    I am about 30 pages from the end of this book and plan on reading it again as soon as I'm finished. This is not the type of self-help book that tells you to change your diet, take herbal pills, hold hands and pray. They actually give you thorough details on what steps to take to recognize and repair nearly every fight-causing problem in your relationship by helping you realize your anger triggers and calming them before they escalate into a war. This book is also filled with exercises, as well as examples of how to do them properly, which I intend to photocopy and start using as soon as I've finished my first pass with the book. Everyone that is in a relationship should read this book because it can help to fix problems, or make 'non-problems' even better just by learning to communicate more effectively, but I especially recommend this book to those who are in (what I refer to as) an explosive relationship.

    This book was recomended by a doctor for me to read. It was easy to read and had good ideas to use in my daily life. I would recommend this to other couples to read.
