Overview

Harvard-trained lawyer and family and divorce mediator Laurie Puhn shows busy couples how to stop fighting and start communicating.

It happens every day: a simple exchange or harmless response turns into a heated debate or worse, an all-out battle. Hard-pressed for quality time with our partners and spouses, it's easy to fall into a poor communication routine. How can two people who love one another so much have such difficulty talking to one another?

Drawing on her expertise in legal mediation and conflict resolution, Puhn's fresh approach gives simple, 5-minute conversations that will instantly improve communication, as well as the quality of relationships. In Fight Less, Love More, learn how to identify and conquer the poor verbal habits, instinctive responses, and emotional reasoning that can cloud judgment and ultimately lead to the deterioration of otherwise healthy relationships.

Love is conditional, argues Puhn, and for love to survive, couples don't need to talk more, they need to talk better. With exercises, examples, and sample scripts, Puhn's simple 5-minute strategies promise immediate results and provide long-lasting communication skills that couples can confidently employ when faced with future conflict.

    Highly Recommended.

    Listened to the author on the radio and bought the book. She makes sense. Relationships last when both people feel valued. How do you do that? With 5-minute strategies every day. I didn't think this would be easy, but as it turns out, it only took me a day of practice before I remembered how to turn the tips into action every day. My wife thought I was acting weird at first, but now she loves the new me. I'm generally suspicious of self-help, but this one is written by a lawyer/mediator, not a therapist. The book is very clear and entertaining. It's quite a good read. I passed it on to my wife who is enjoying it as well. Give it a shot and you'll be pleasantly surprised.
