Publisher's Summary

Contemporary relationships are in a state of rapid evolution. These changes can and should empower people with the opportunity to develop partnerships based on their own sexualities, understandings, and agreements. This makes it possible to create what Kenneth Haslam, founder of the Kinsey Institute's Polyamory Archive, has called designer relationships. The possibilities are limitless, and thinking about a partnership as something people can craft allows for flexibility and change. Relationships can open and close or have varying degrees and kinds of openness as circumstances demand. In the context of a designer relationship, decisions are made mutually, consciously, and deliberately. Best-selling authors and relationship experts Patricia Johnson and Mark A. Michaels are exemplars of this life choice, and have studied polyamory for over 20 years.

It was okay not the best

It was good for what it was, but didn't really like the writing style. I think there could less about their personal story

Good for a clinical understanding

I found it good but complex language saying what we mostly know but never thought how to put it in words. I found it is written for one doctor explaining to anothet doctor what poly is all about. I think the author could risk giving a little more personal opinion . I enjoyed it but didnt learn as much as I expected. I might be a little demanding that way so consider that when reading the comment

Thought provoking and interesting.

Really useful overview of the choices and approaches available today in the sphere of relationships. Good insight and instruction with emphasis on kindness and ethics. Recommended for those questioning the 'norm'.
