Publisher's Summary

Can you love more than one person? Can you have multiple romantic partners without jealousy or cheating? Absolutely! Polyamorous people have been paving the way through trial and painful error. Now the new book More Than Two can help you find your own way. With completely new material and a fresh approach, Franklin Veaux and Eve Rickert wrote More Than Two to expand on and update the themes and ideas in the wildly popular polyamory website morethantwo.com.

From ancient Greece through the many dynasties of China and to current practices of nonmonogamy, people have openly engaged in multiple intimate relationships. Not until the late 20th century, however, was a word coined that encapsulated the practice, philosophies, edicts, and ethics: polyamory (poly = many + amore = love).

For Franklin Veaux, who has been polyamorous for his entire adult life, the emerging framework and subsequent vocabulary for his lifestyle was a light in the dark. Candidly sharing his experiences and thoughts online catapulted his website, morethantwo.com, among the first dedicated to the poly lifestyle, to one of the top-ranking on the subject.

In recent years, as more people have discovered polyamory as a legitimate and desirable option for how they conduct their relationships, Franklin and one of his partners, Eve Rickert, saw that there was a growing need for a comprehensive guide to the lifestyle. More Than Two is that guide.

    "Great book. Deceptive description."

    The analysis and advice on living an ethically polyamorous life are great, presented smoothly with relevant examples. The narration is also very well done, clear and easy to listen to. I subtract one star because when I buy a book advertised as "unabridged" I expect to receive the entire book; I do not expect a couple of dozen references to a Resources section that only exists "in the paper and e-dition versions of this book." Audible should either provide the missing section as a downloading addendum, as they have with other volumes, or refrain from claiming it to be the unabridged book.

    "Incredibly well written!"

    This book should be required reading for anybody considering polyamory. They do a great job of explaining what works, what doesn't, and more importantly why, without necessarily having an idealistic attitude towards relationships. I would have benefitted from reading this book sooner. It just does such a good job of clarifying how to create healthy, respectful, and loving relationships that all relationships would benefit from whether they are poly or not. Highly recommended!!!

    "brilliant book with valuable lessons."

    this book is a wonderful resource for anyone trying to develop any kind of relationship. Although the main subject us polyamory., it seems this crucible of emotion that the authors have been through has served to highlight the lessons of social relationships for more than just the polyamorous, but for humanity. I would reccomend this book as a guide to treating everyone in your life better, and getting more out of all of your relationships.
    However I can't ignore the guiding principles of polyamory itself, and how well presented they are here. If anyone has ever been curious about polyamory then here you will find an illuminating read. I dare to say this is the authoritative book on the subject.

    "Excellent, well researched"

    I was immensely impressed by this book. I have read it twice. My poly group is reading it now. The authors were thorough in their treatment of every subject. They offer us a theoretical framework on polyamory from which we can think about our lives and make wise choices for our own personal happiness. At the same time the book is warmly written as though we, readers, had stumbled upon them in a grocery store and this was our long, long conversation. Everyone should read it since the book contains much wisdom for all who want love regardless of what relationship mode you pursue.

    "Neat!"

    Great book.
    Well written with real life examples. The authors website has all of the 'in the back' resources that the audio version lacks.

    "A true game changer"
    Would you listen to More than Two again? Why?

    Definitely. I've already listened it three times within a month. It has a lot to think about.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of More than Two?

    Relationships bill of rights really opened my mind to re-evaluate my relationships. Thoughts about veto were very profound. Best of all was the theme and encouragement to courage and trust throughout the book. This book has already been a game changer to my personal thinking about polyamory and has helped to mend a serious problem in my existing relationships.


    What does Craig Beck bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Craig Beck is a true love to be listened. His reading is clear, punctuating and best of all funny. He really makes the jokes funny and I have to confess I laughed many times out loud while listening. This book wouldn't be the same without him.
