I had high expectations of this book due to the authors' reputations. It was definitely well written and holds key information to help a person understand what types of things can help you communicate better and more effectively with your loved one. This is based upon an understanding of which of four factors make you and your loved one feel emotionally safe, and putting that together with an understanding of where you are on the spectrum of four types of approaches which determine your talk sty ...more

I love reading any book that can help in my relationship. I think people are so different that reading what others say can open our eyes to our own partners.

For me, I tend to not be able to relate to my BF or understand where he is coming from and books like these help me better understand his point of view.

This book talked about talking adn listening to our partners. Sometimes we tend to not hear what the other person is saying, we only focus on what we hear and most of the time it is not what

This book has a lot of helpful and relevant communication tips and techniques. I took the "Love Talk Indicator" online and found it very insightful to myself. Even as a single woman I found this book useful! I did not use the workbooks, but the exercises in them (referenced throughout the book) definitely seemed interesting and potentially very useful to a couple!

It is a good book. It is about how women and men see things differently when they talk to each other. Example: My sisters father had put the baby asleep in his arms and my sister made the comment to here husband that the baby is asleep. To use women would mean for our husbands to take the baby and put her in the crib. But men just sees it okay they are asleep. It was funny because I was reading this bood and explained to my sister that you need to exactly need to tell them what your really mean. ...more

This book along with DVD lessons and discussion in a small group really helped my wife and I and other couples take our communication to the next level.
I am actually re-reading this book... did a study on it right after getting married. The authors are Christian, a husband and wife team who give seminars on marriage and communication. The book offers pretty basic advice, and is at its best when paired with the accompanying workbook.

I didn't get a lot out of this book mostly because I was supposed to read it with my husband and do the workbooks and online assessment. Maybe if I felt like we had really big communication issues I would do all that and then I can see how this book would be a big help.

Most of the time it's not about what you say, it's about how you say it and how the other person hears it.
Practical advice for married couples on how to communicate and what the other one is really saying.
