This book should have been named 'If Love is a Business Deal, This is The Paperwork.' It contains many great pointers, which are really simply common sense actions that any good-natured, considerate, honest person would naturally know to take.
It's yet another book about conducting personal relationships the way one would conduct a business acquisition or merger.
The partner selection process, for example, is a textbook on population control. That is, if most people followed that method, they would probably never meet/commit with anybody because no one they encounter would meet their 'must-have criteria.' That method may work great for well-to-do, dedicated social butterflies, who can spend all their spare time and effort finding and evaluating potential partners until marriage.
(There is a silly movie called 'Cherry 2000,' which shows how people will 'partner' in the future, if the selection methods in this book are widely accepted, through brokered negotiations, contracts, etc.)
If you've read the Mars/Venus books and the like, you won't find much new in this one...
