this is a text for school, but i'd recommend it to all of my married friends and family. while it approaches emotional intelligence from a clinical perspective (chapters 4-13 address PET-C, atkinson's treatment modality for couples' therapy), the introduction and first three chapters are virtually jargon-free and lay-reader friendly and, i think, should be required reading for getting a marriage license.

I have recommended this book to friends who have no interest in therapy and have heard great reviews from them as well!
