I Suck at Relationships So You Don't Have To: 10 Rules for Not Screwing Up Your Happily Ever After by Bethenny Frankel

Bethenny Frankel, five-time New York Times bestselling author, self-made businesswoman, and media maven, shares her ten rules for relationship success and takes us on an empowering journey to learn how to say yes to love.

From running her Skinnygirl business to being a mom and a TV star, Bethenny Frankel appears to have it all. But when it comes to relationships, she is the first to admit that she has failed—a lot. In fact, Bethenny has made every mistake, from calling when she shouldn’t have to misreading signals to staying with a guy for all the wrong reasons. In working through the mistakes, she has gained insight and wisdom about what matters most.

Filled with personal stories and the no-nonsense advice she’s known for, New York Times bestseller I Suck at Relationships So You Don’t Have To is the next step on Bethenny’s A Place of Yes journey. She offers an unflinching but ultimately hopeful look at what it takes to find real love including tips on dating, how to trust your gut, avoiding self-sabotage, and much more.

It’s easy to give up on romance, to expect the worst, and to doubt yourself, but you shouldn’t be satisfied with a relationship that is mediocre—your relationship can and should be incredible. Using Bethenny’s “A Place of Yes” attitude, you too can find love and a relationship that is more successful, fulfilling, and happier than ever before.

When reading this book while taking a relational communication course, i found that this book was relevant to the many different relational theories that we were learning about.I really enjoyed reading this book because it seems to be set in a knowledgeable tone but she brings in a little humor to lighten the tone.I also liked how you get two different perspectives.Bethenny gives her opinion and voices her experiences and then her therapist chimes in and adds his comments and opinions.I really feel that this book was a way to help women who may have shared the same experiences as her by basically telling them the do’s and do nots.I find most of this information to be beneficial and somewhat accurate but many would disagree with some of the information in this book because she predominantly focus on being in a heterosexual relationship where it leaves out homosexual relationships so they could possibly not relate to her, but other than that i think she does a great job telling her experience,it seemed like she was being real and straightforward the whole time and it did not seem like she was holding back anything.I would definitely recommend this book if someone were feeling alone and like they just aren’t made for relationships.
