I found this book quite disappointing, not nearly as well thought out as his preceding books. To me it seemed like he'd based his advice on some kind of sit com stereotype of a dysfunctional couple. It's focus is quite narrow, it's not nearly as broadly applicable as his blurbs and introduction make out, it's only really suitable for people in a committed romantic relationship (not any other type of close relationship) and it's only useful for couples who have quite typical problems.

A must read for all committed couples and even singles who are wondering what it takes to make a relationship work.

Great practical tools to help you achieve the relationship you want.
