Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Barton Goldsmith has provided couples with a step-by-step guide to a healthy relationship. All couples, reading the short chapters and doing the explicit and powerful exercises, save, deepen and transform their relationship. I recommend it for all couples.
—Harville Hendrix, Ph.D., author of Getting the Love You Want: A Guide for Couples and coauthor of Receiving Love

In Emotional Fitness for Couples, Goldsmith helps couples become proactive in their relationships by using easy to follow exercises and practical advice that allows them to enhance their interactions and their love.
—Gerald G. Jampolsky, MD, author of Love Is Letting Go of Fear

… I found this book to contain a great deal of wisdom, which is made easily accessible to the reader. I have experienced fifty wonderful years of married life and so know the practical steps to emotional fitness for couples shared here are of great value.
—Bernie Siegel, MD, author of Prescriptions for Living and 365 Prescriptions for the Soul

This book has some very good ideas on how couples can stop their anger at each other and live more successfully together.
—Albert Ellis, Ph.D., noted psychologist and author of A Guide to Rational Living

Bull's-eye! Like a Zen archer, Barton Goldsmith releases an arrow into the very center of intimacy. And like a Zen monk he writes with a disarming charm and graceful elegance, creating a book that is fun, funny, yet penetratingly wise. My advice is simple - Read it.
—Shawn Christopher Shea, MD, author of Happiness Is and Psychiatric Interviewing: the Art of Understanding

Goldsmith is the BEST natural born therapist I have ever met. I thoroughly enjoy working with him.
—David Viscott, MD, TV and radio talk show host and author of The Making of a Psychiatrist

Goldsmith's articles and books on relationships are right on the mark.
—Edward M. Hallowell, MD, author of Driven from Distraction, Dare to Forgive, and Delivered from Distraction

I can HONESTLY say that Goldsmiths's book is outstanding-a really terrific combination of good bedside manner, useful and practical information, and common sense.
—Anne Sheffield, award winning author of Depression Fallout and How You Can Survive When They're Depressed

At last a book that not only guides the reader when it comes to successful relationships but shows us the value of emotional fitness: communication, nurturance and constancy, in partnering. By subscribing to Goldsmith's theory and practice, couples will end up with a more satisfying connection and a better sense of each other's needs, as well as their own.
—Susan Shapiro Barash, author of The New Wife: The Evolving Role of the American Wife

    Help that really works!

    Wow, what a terrific book! I started reading it in bed and talking to my live-in boyfriend about some of the issues covered in the book. Surprise! He actually opened up and talked about his feelings. We've been doing some of the exercises and a lot of talking, and it's helped our relationship so much. I am actually considering marrying him! It's great to have a book that is so easy to understand, and work from in the privacy of our own home. Thank you Barton Goldsmith for making it easy for the rest of us!
