Excellently balanced for both the avid learner, unsuspecting dunce

I accidentally stumbled across this book trying to find something on neurology. My partner and I are a little over two years together now, so communication is still a learning work-in-progress.

I’m biased towards self-help books, but this is definitely one of the top audible experiences I’ve had (I’m probably close to/over 100 books in the library with around 10 repeaters).

I found myself reflecting on my own shortcomings as a partner, because I was motivated to be a more active participant in the relationship. One of my favorite dynamics from the book is how the author cleverly weaves sound seductive arguments within common-sense conversation, and tidies it up with realistic evidence. I most enjoyed how the author constructively disassembles a large collection of social norms, expectations, and assumptions.

So far I’ve tried to shove this book in any of my audible fiends’ ears. On my third listen in less than a few months, I’m very pleased.

Essential listening for all couples

Dr. Stan Tatkin does it again with an engaging and informative book that will actually help you create a strong and secure-functioning relationship. I especially love the role plays that demonstrate toxic conflict and exactly how secure-functioning couples resolve conflict in healthy ways. This is an enjoyable book that I’ll be listening to again and again and recommending to the couples I work with.

Awesome

I love all his books. But the acting from the “examples” is ridiculously bad. It makes them not relatable and a big distraction. The examples were not necessary. With that being said Stan once again offers a tremendous amount of information about all of us.
