Overview

An entertaining and eye-opening relationship book in the tradition of the million-copy bestseller The Five Love Languages

How can two people who love each other not get along?

Most relationships founder not from a lack of love, but from a lack of understanding. In Lovebirds, couples therapist and birdwatcher Trevor Silvester shows how birds of a different feather can flock together.

The quizzes in Lovebirds reveal which of eight birds you are, and which your partner is. Are you a ground bird or a sky bird? A sight bird or a song bird? If you’re an owl, and you spend a lot of time talking to yourself, then how do you get along with a nightingale, one of the great song birds, which directs most of its talking outward? If you’re a swan, and you prefer to stay on the ground, knowing things up close and in detail, then what kind of future do you have with a swift, which trusts its instincts over logic and can live happily in the clouds?

Whimsical and wise, and with charming illustrations, Lovebirds puts a whole new spin on the relationship book.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
10/28/2013
Couples therapist Silvester explores romantic relationships and personalities through a bird analogy. A series of quizzes divide people into two categories—sky birds, which are ruled by their intuition and feelings, and more rationalist, data-driven ground birds. Silvester further sorts readers into eight subcategories loosely based on the Myers Briggs Personality Inventory: sight, song, feeling, and thinking birds. After types are established, he explores relationship dynamics between each personality type, addressing what each “bird” needs to know to interact with another type, and dos and don’ts for respective combinations. Once the myriad possibilities are explained in detail, Silvester offers love advice geared to all personality types—such as how to maintain a relationship once the newness has worn off—and encourages all couples to set specific, measurable, achievable, realistic goals to maintain their level of satisfaction within a romantic relationship. One of Silvester’s most striking and useful pieces of advice applies to everyone reading the book: “Make sure the internal self-talk is positive. Male or female, think about how you want something to be, not how it isn’t.” Despite the cute tone and occasional juvenile asides, Silvester offers a solid manual for strong relationships. (Jan.)
