I have to facilitate a discussion on conflict resolution for a group I'm a part of (have no idea why as that is definitely not my background or area of expertise). Anyway, I needed to quickly find some stuff to talk about and came across this book. It does a great job, in only 100 pages or so, of laying out reasons why we argue, why arguing without resolution is unhealthy for marriages, and provides a plan for dealing with conflict. It echoes some of the other information I've found as I've been ...more

This a wonderfully clear and simple book that can help teach couples how to reduce arguments and increase productive discussions. Practice all listening tools that anyone can do if they are willing. A quick read loaded with great information.
I listened to the audio version of this book.
It is a short listen with some good practical examples and principles. I think the principles here are good starters for conflict resolution. There is some parallel (though from a different perspective) between this and "Anger...powerful emotion".
Both are good but I think many situations in this book quickly cross over into the Anger book making both of them important resources.

Very useful and a quick read.

recommend for anyone who is interested in getting out of the "courthouse" and on to real solutions. I would even recommend this to help with interacting with children and teenagers.
Easy to Follow

very easy to follow advice! so glad I read it on my Kindle. cannot wait to apply what I have learned into my daily life with my partner..!!
Another audio book I powered through at work. The lessons were great, but I wasn't sure that each scenario would play out exactly as offered...
This guy is good everything I read of his works! Till I forget it that in :(
Can be applied to speaking with people in general.

A short but good book about why we argue and how we instead through empathic listening to each other can choose to solve our differences as a team. Short book with a clear message.
A must read for everyone! Short book. Author of "The Five Love Languages" and since I enjoyed that book so much, I picked up this little jewel. Very easy to read. Great advice.

Great book. It's extremely thin, but says crucial things on how to act during a conflict. Highly recommend not only for married couples, even for singles it's definitely useful.
Jonathan Friedmann
This was a good quick read that started several good conversations between me and the wife about conflict. Nothing more; nothing less.
