It takes a lot for me to do two things: not finish a book, and give a one star review. Unfortunately, I feel that I have to do both for this book.

If you have read my other reviews, you know that relationship books are a guilty pleasure of mine. I've read my fair share of them. Some are outstanding and I adore them.

This book is a summary of Dr. Larson's quantitative approach to assessing "compatability." It is a good read if you know how to assess a quantitative approach for its own problems, but has the potential to be taken as fact and used in a pretty ineffective and unhealthy way by people looking for help in their relationships. Plus, I found his writing style cocky and pushy. Not a super big fan, but it wasn't terrible.
