North America's number one stress-reducing guru and New York Times bestselling author of the Don't Sweat the Small Stuff series now offers simple strategies for improving love relationships. He's helped millions of readers reduce the stress in their everyday lives, with their families, and in their jobs. Now Dr. Richard Carlson shows readers how to apply his immensely popular and helpful philosophy to one of the most difficult aspects of life; the romantic relationship.

In one hundred brief, beautifully written essays, Dr. Carlson shows readers how not to overreact to a loved one's criticism, how to appreciate your spouse in new ways, how to get past old angers, and many others ways to improve and increase the joy and pleasure that can and should be a part of any partnership.

This book is fantastic. It completely helped me remember what's important in my relationships, and not to major in minor things. This book does not only apply to romance relationships, but also to our relationships with family and friends. This book is jammed full of real life examples that we live everyday, and examines our responses and actions to what's happening around us. Presents a lot of really good things to think about.
i loved this book. it is so simply laid out and presented, you can read one suggestion everyday. i read this book and am now sharing it with my partner on a daily basis, our chapter time we call it. most of the issues are things im trying to point out to my partner, who never lets things go and is extremely demanding of me. this book had helped him to see how he has been acting, although we have a long way to go its a start.
We often try to make love complicated. The Carlsons give practical, common sense advice to develop your loving relationship without having to resort to clinical concepts. Put this book by your bedside and read an essay aloud each night to your sweetheart.
