Publisher's Summary

Proven principles - drawn from real-life failures and successes - for building and sustaining a loving, healthy relationship in today’s trying times, from celebrity life coach and motivational speaker Tony Gaskins, Jr.

After speaking out about how weak and insecure men control women in relationships in 2009 on several globally televised shows, Tony Gaskins launched his career as a life coach and relationship counselor. Since then, Gaskins, who has been a faithful and committed husband for more than a decade, has counseled thousands and inspired millions online, becoming one of America’s foremost experts on love and relationships. 

Practical and accessible, and delivered in the empowering, empathetic tone his devoted following has come to love and trust, Make It Work walks you through a series of essential lessons on how to maintain a healthy and long-lasting relationship. Drawing inspiration from the Bible and from his own personal failures and successes, Gaskins offers a framework for how to recognize the right person to settle down with, how to set standards that promote loving relationships - and what to avoid in a successful union.

Make It Work arrives as a hopeful response to a culture where breakups and divorces are all too common, and it serves as a vital resource to help your relationship thrive today.

Wonderful!!

This is wonderful. One day in 2016, I was riding in my car listening to 88.1. A young man was on the radio talking about the word of God and his book "Real Love." I immediately downloaded the book. After reading that book, I read his book "Broke Minded."
@tonygaskins has done it again his new book "Make it Work." This book is for people who are single, married, separated, and/or divorced. I received my preordered audible on yesterday, but began listening today. He gives sound biblical teaching, scripture, and holy spirit inspired advice on life and relationships.
I wish that my soon to be ex husband and I had this book or even had someone in our lives during the beginning and throughout our marriage, to help us like this book will help others. Praying that it blesses everyone that reads it. It has blessed me!

Really good listen

I love the lessons given to us by Tony in this book. It's common sense and faith-based, which seem to he two things individuals struggle with and lack. My only complaint would be that is it mostly geared towards married couples. I see ways to implement this into my single life when determining what to look for in a partner, but a lot may not actually come into play until marriage. Overall, I think this book will help a lot of couples with their relationships.

Very Informative Book!

I enjoy the way Tony speaks so real about life. He speaks the truth. At times I myself is ashamed of some of the things I have done that I am not afraid to admit where I went wrong. Life is a journey of lessons to learn from. Enjoyed another book. 👏 P. S. I will hire Tony to help find me my soul mate💯😁🙏

God bless the Gaskins family

There are some concepts in this book which are 100% unbiblical unfortunately, and that is the only reason I didn't give it a straight five star but other than that there is a lot of great advice and godly wisdom being shared, and praise God for that.

For all regardless of relationship status

I thought this was for married couples trying to “make it work” but this book really does give great advice whatever your relationship status. I like that it’s speaks to both men and women. Very insightful and needed in this day and age.
