Great book, narrated by the author. Whatever the nature of your romantic relationships, she will have a story or example that speaks to you and your personal situation. I'm impressed.
I thought it was a story about sex. It's actually a really interesting deconstruction of people's problems with sex in relationships and it's intriguing. I enjoyed listening to this more than other erotic novels.
So far out of all the books and workshops I've done, she's the best! She gets it. She gets me. I feel like there really is a way for me to have love, desire, spontaneity, passion, security, fulfillment, in a long term relationship. Thank you Ester, God bless you!
Anyone who wants to have sex AND be in a relationship should read this book. Esther Perel brings so much to the table with her rich and diverse background and cutting edge, status quo challenging concepts. Her explanations are increasingly eloquent and creative. The case studies she presents are invaluable. And I f all that wasn't enough her reading voice, accent and cadence are a pleasure to listen to. Enjoy!
I read the reviews beforehand and was warned about the accent, the overwhelming number of gems, the this-is-not-a-how-to book, therefore I liked it.
My husband and I read it at the same time. I recommend that. Give yourself some time to stop and talk. It opened our eyes to a few things and yes, now we have to fix them ourselves, but I'm ok with that.
Yes, for general knowledge.
She provided no practical solutions for romance issues in long-term relationships
Hard to listen too.
It is nice information and understanding of difficulty in having romantic yet long lasting aromatic relationship, however she failed to provide solutions to the issue discussed in the book aside from; Romantic relationship does not exist in a long term relationships.
I am an entrepreneur and I love Audiobooks
She doesn't exactly give you how to tips but she unpacks the concepts in a way that makes you better understand. I now understand what I am feeling and see the situation more clearly
Book starts a little slow but get better as you go
A great analysis to help comprehend the why on marriage sex problems. A guide to reflexion on the subject. Great reading for both individuals in a long term couple relationship.
