This book really goes in-depth on how to have a mutually happy relationship with anyone. The insight it provides on not only learning how to communicate, but how to receive that communication from other, was extremely helpful to me in my daily life. I highly recommend it!

I wasn’t looking for a relationship book when I stumbled upon this. My fiancee and I don’t have any major conflicts to work on, but I read it anyway and wound up learning way more than I expected. More than ways to solve problems, I saw it as understanding how to make relationships succeed and how to keep making them better. The authors are extremely knowledgeable and experienced, using lots of examples and breaking things down so just about everyone can apply the ideas to themselves. The Spiral of Love and Transforming Hurts especially got me to notice what is already going on in my relationship before we’ve even gotten married. I was surprised by how many things we don’t control that can throw stresses into a relationship, so I’m glad this book has given me new confidence. Now my fiancee is reading it. We are discussing every chapter and getting excited about achieving a long-time love like the Shearers. If you’re looking to solve problems, you need this book, but if you want a great relationship to get even better, this book will teach you how.
