I'm enjoying this book. It is a bathroom book type format of quick 1-2 page chapters that offer keys to great relationships, with an idea like "Never let faults stand for the whole" where David Niven backs up his position with a statistic from relationship research, in this case: relationships that make it focus 5x on the positive than on the negative traits in their partner. I've noticed a common thread among these chapters is on "ATTITUDE" over the problem. In other words, it is the spirit of our attitude with each other that determines our happiness - and how long we will last together - more than the problems, concerns, and trials of the relationship.
