Publisher's Summary

A revolutionary approach to improving every relationship in your life, Complaint-Free Relationshipspicks up where the internationally successful A Complaint Free World left off, with all-new methods to help you overcome toxic habits and build strong, successful connections with others.

The original Complaint-Free movement has exploded into an international phenomenon, with 5.5 million people in more than 80 countries taking the pledge to create a complaint-free life, as well as national media attention. As this movement expands, it is clear that the real focus of achieving true complaint-free living lies in our relationships.

People complain to bond with others. It's easy to feel connected by common annoyances. But most complaining is about people, and this leads to negative and unhealthy foundations for our relationships with others--from family, lovers and friends to our more casual connections with people in our daily lives. Complaint-Free Relationships provides insight and helpful tools to see, understand, and engage in our relationships through the lens of complaint-free living. It incorporates new studies about complaining, inspiring and illuminating stories from Will Bowen's experience both as a minister and founder of the Complaint Free movement, and practical exercises at the end of each chapter. By providing the tools you need to escape the trap complaining creates--feeling unfulfilled and inadequate--Complaint-Free Relationships offers new clarity and encourages you to create happy, stimulating and mutually satisfying relationships.

Excellent on Inspiration - Short on Strategy

What did you love best about Complaint Free Relationships?

I thought that the narrator/author was excellent. I also really liked the mnemonics that help you to understand when you are complaining so that you can try and stop it. My concern was that there was little treatment of how to redress issues in life without complaining past the first chapter. After that there were mostly anecdotes illustrating how Mr. Boen lives complaint free. I tend to be a learner by example, but more concrete strategies would have been helpful to me.

What about Will Bowen’s performance did you like?

Will Bowen was a very clear speaker and his passion for his subject really came through in his writing.

Any additional comments?

I did enjoy the book and I did learn from it. I plan to listen to it more than once to try and get to make a complaint-free life a habit that I can be proud of.

Practical book for complaint free relationships

I was listening to this book as someone in our bi-weekly reading group suggested it as our reading session material. Heard of the complaint-free wristbands movement and has always wanted to read more about this movement. When I finally got the first glance over the material, I felt the practical respective the author is giving on why we should all workout a complaint-free relationship. Would definitely give it a thorough read again and would love to witness the impact a complaint free experience with people in my life.

Better later than never!...just a fact.

This book was really insightful and caused me to plow forward into being a complaint-free person -period! Not just in my relationship, but in my life overall. The story, narration, relate-ability, humor, and relativeness make this book so well worth it. I would've loved to have read this book years ago when it 1st came out, but I appreciate reading it -period! The actual help, guidance, and perspective it gives is PRICELESS! You make your own lunch! I've decided to make my lunch a buffet of GREATNESS! Add this book to your library; you won't regret it.
