Excellently balanced for both the avid learner, unsuspecting dunce

I accidentally stumbled across this book trying to find something on neurology. My partner and I are a little over two years together now, so communication is still a learning work-in-progress.

I’m biased towards self-help books, but this is definitely one of the top audible experiences I’ve had (I’m probably close to/over 100 books in the library with around 10 repeaters).

I found myself reflecting on my own shortcomings as a partner, because I was motivated to be a more active participant in the relationship. One of my favorite dynamics from the book is how the author cleverly weaves sound seductive arguments within common-sense conversation, and tidies it up with realistic evidence. I most enjoyed how the author constructively disassembles a large collection of social norms, expectations, and assumptions.

So far I’ve tried to shove this book in any of my audible fiends’ ears. On my third listen in less than a few months, I’m very pleased.

Life changing

This is the absolute best book I’ve ever experienced on relationship. I highly recommend this for couples and singles. The material covers aspects of how and why to be in relationship. The Material is never dry and there was not one chapter that I didn’t feel was receiving wisdom that I wish I had 30 years ago.

Essential listening for all couples

Dr. Stan Tatkin does it again with an engaging and informative book that will actually help you create a strong and secure-functioning relationship. I especially love the role plays that demonstrate toxic conflict and exactly how secure-functioning couples resolve conflict in healthy ways. This is an enjoyable book that I’ll be listening to again and again and recommending to the couples I work with.

Awesome

I love all his books. But the acting from the “examples” is ridiculously bad. It makes them not relatable and a big distraction. The examples were not necessary. With that being said Stan once again offers a tremendous amount of information about all of us.
