Overview

This book is a hard hitting comprehensive guide that takes a look at relationships and how they really are in the world today. This is your new user and repair manual for healthy relationships. It is the brainstorm of Professor Thomas W. Nagle. He started doing research for this book 10 years ago and became serious about writing it about 5 years ago. Hundreds of men and women were interviewed during this time to gather the important information needed regarding what makes a good relationship and what doesn't work.
"This is your user and repair guide" for present day relationships."
Some of the concepts in this book are embedded in multiple articles. This is by design. We want you to get the "essence" of all the important concepts within multiple contexts. Many of these concepts will apply to various cycles of a relationship and the overlaps will help you remember them. For example, stress management applies to the looking for a new relationship, sustaining an existing relationship and exiting a bad relationship.
A breath of fresh air has just blown into the world of old school relationship books.
Most everyone will be able to relate to the articles regardless of gender, income class or relationship status. They have mixed the "academia" theory along with the "school of hard knocks" to bring you the perfect blend of both. You will be armed with new tools and ideas to handle most of the relationship issues that may come your way. This information can change your way of thinking and help you to see things about yourself and others that you may have never thought about before. Happily married, on the market, not happy, conflicted or just breaking up, this book has you covered on what you need to know. This is a definite value added book and most everyone can learn something new about Life and Love.
This book was written to get you to start thinking. We have written this book it in a way that encourages you to critically think your own assumptions about love, life and relationships. You will gain new insights and acquire new tools to help you make better decisions in many aspects of your life. We will attempt to answer many of the "why" questions that you may have. In the end you should draw your own conclusions. This book will hopefully spare you from making some mistakes that we have already made and save you from wasting valuable time. It may also help clarify what it is exactly that you are really looking for in a relationship. In a nutshell, you will be better equipped to make wiser decisions when it comes to "matters of the heart."
We will take you full circle from wanting to find a relationship, how to find the right kind of partner and how to avoid hooking up with toxic people. You will learn to see the red flags and warnings that you will want to stay clear of when searching for a new mate. You need to be open minded and willing to change your own bad habits, thought process and behavior patterns if you wish to change the outcome of past bad relationships.
We will then enter the phase of a new relationship with a new partner and provide you with tips to help you keep your new relationship healthy. This will give you the tools that you need to make a healthy long-term relationship. You will learn how to leave your old baggage behind you for good.
You will learn that you must find closure and that you need to heal your wounds before you can move forward. You will then be able to move forward again and be able to find a healthy, happy and sustainable relationship. You can then use all the tools you have learned in this book to do it right the next time. This has taken you step by step right back to the beginning of being "Back on the market" again. The insights that you have gained here will stay with you long after you have finished reading.
