A revolutionary approach to improving every relationship in your life, Complaint-Free Relationshipspicks up where the internationally successful A Complaint Free World left off, with all-new methods to help you overcome toxic habits and build strong, successful connections with others.
The original Complaint-Free movement has exploded into an international phenomenon, with 5.5 million people in more than 80 countries taking the pledge to create a complaint-free life, as well as national media attention. As this movement expands, it is clear that the real focus of achieving true complaint-free living lies in our relationships.
People complain to bond with others. It's easy to feel connected by common annoyances. But most complaining is about people, and this leads to negative and unhealthy foundations for our relationships with others--from family, lovers and friends to our more casual connections with people in our daily lives. Complaint-Free Relationships provides insight and helpful tools to see, understand, and engage in our relationships through the lens of complaint-free living. It incorporates new studies about complaining, inspiring and illuminating stories from Will Bowen's experience both as a minister and founder of the Complaint Free movement, and practical exercises at the end of each chapter. By providing the tools you need to escape the trap complaining creates--feeling unfulfilled and inadequate--Complaint-Free Relationships offers new clarity and encourages you to create happy, stimulating and mutually satisfying relationships.

I thought that the narrator/author was excellent. I also really liked the mnemonics that help you to understand when you are complaining so that you can try and stop it. My concern was that there was little treatment of how to redress issues in life without complaining past the first chapter. After that there were mostly anecdotes illustrating how Mr. Boen lives complaint free. I tend to be a learner by example, but more concrete strategies would have been helpful to me.
Will Bowen was a very clear speaker and his passion for his subject really came through in his writing.
I did enjoy the book and I did learn from it. I plan to listen to it more than once to try and get to make a complaint-free life a habit that I can be proud of.
