Publisher's Summary

Decode your relationships and discover why men are from Mars and women are from Venus...A 75-year Harvard study found that love is the secret to a fulfilling life.

Did you know that:

  • There is 1 divorce approximately every 36 seconds. That's nearly 2,400 divorces per day, 16,800 divorces per week and 876,000 divorces a year 
  • 70 percent of straight unmarried couples break up within the first year
  • The divorce rate for couples over 65 years old has doubled since 1980

The number one reason for the dramatic increase in breakups is that we don´t take time for real communication within our relationship. You only listen to the words your partner say, but you forget to interpret the needs that he or she sends in hidden messages.

Communication doesn´t always need to be verbal. According to Psychology Today, more than half of all communication in conversation is done in nonverbal form.

Based on our gender segregation, boys and girls grow into different social roles. These roles come with a secret language and sometimes you wonder if your loved one is a creature from another planet.

Men communicate on a factual level. Women on an emotional level. 

No wonder the number one relationship killer is miscommunication in all areas of life. This includes romantic relationships, of course, but it also applies to friendship,s and coworker or manager-team relationships.

You´ll discover:

  • The secret language to maintain healthy and fulfilling relationships in all areas of life
  • How to ensure that others understand your needs
  • How to read the invisible hints someone gives
  • How to overcome relationship barriers
  • The #1 skill for meaningful conversations
  • How to use communication at work for more success and satisfaction in your joB
  • How to express negative emotions without erupting like a volcano
  • How to deal with toxic relationships and never be manipulated again
  • How to create a romantic fairytale relationship and live happily ever after
  • Why not all communication is good communication and how to communicate effectively
  • 17 relationship killers and how to overcome themAnd much, much more.

Each chapter ends with a quick tip box to make sure you can apply the essentials skills for good communication.

Even if you call yourself a relationship expert, there are still hidden secrets about the other gender you probably haven´t heard of.

We all know how much happiness love brings into our lives. Yet, life can be unpredictable and unexpected life circumstances might be challenging for your relationship.

It is important to be prepared and know how someone of the opposite sex responds facing challenging situations and what this means for the communication between the two of you.

Discover the lens others use to see the world.

In reality, anxiety is an umbrella term that includes several conditions that can cause people to experience fear or panic. Medical professionals classify the anxiety that lasts for at least six months and which is not associated with a specific trigger as a generalized anxiety disorder. I think it better guide for us. Well written and good content guidebook.

The book is honest

The book is honest about the fact that a serious effort is required to maintain the lines of communication. Through this process we also may discover aspects of ourselves that we were not aware of before. With improved communication, however, our relationships will be even stronger than they were before.

Best Ever

I am prescribing this innovative book to people and couples to enable them to turn out to be progressively merciful, emphatic and tolerating. On edge in Love bears people and couples a chance to study uneasiness, and how you as well as your accomplice can confront the test of expanding association and defeating the pressure and strife that obstructs wanted satisfaction and love.
