Esther Perel takes on tough questions, grappling with the obstacles and anxieties that arise when our quest for secure love conflicts with our pursuit of passion. She invites us to explore the paradoxical union of domesticity and sexual desire, and explains what it takes to bring lust home.

If tou are wondering if tou should get this book the answer is YES!!!

Love the open ideas she expresses here. Is it ironic that she has a Dr. Ruth esk accent?

Esther has a real grip on what goes on in relationships and how to solve everyday problems. In her case study stories I was able to see when and where I experienced those very same thoughts emotions and understand why and how things escalated to where they ended in a sad ending. After hearing these insights I know I move forward armed with better skills to make my relationships more fulfilling.

Thank you Esther for doing what you do and sharing your worldly knowledge. Looking forward to the new release.

While building the Virgin Group over 40 years, Richard Branson has never shied away from seemingly outlandish challenges that others (including his own colleagues on several occasions) considered sheer lunacy. He has taken on giants like British Airways and won, and monsters like Coca-Cola and lost. Now Branson gives an inside look at his strikingly different swashbuckling style of leadership.

Once upon a time, Martians and Venusians functioned in separate worlds. But in today's hectic and career-oriented environment, relationships have become a lot more complicated, and men and women are experiencing unprecedented levels of stress. To add to the increasing tension, most men and women are also completely unaware that they are actually hardwired to react differently to the stress.
