Publisher's Summary

This breakthrough book suggests a completely different approach for improving a marriage and dispels the myth that repairing a relationship is necessarily a 2-person task. She shows that making changes in your marriage by yourself is an effective and a low-stress strategy. Based on the premise that what you do in a relationship changes how you feel about it, Page shows you how you can take individual action that will result in mutual strength and happiness.

Step by step, Page demonstrates that the secret to a thriving marriage is finding the balance between taking care of yourself and extending good will to your partner. Through a series of experiments, she introduces the concept of Loving Leadership and presents a range of solo strategies for creating harmony in a marriage, including how to: develop fresh perspectives about your relationship; Overcome resentment and moving beyond blame; and how to recapture lost intimacy.

With tangible goals, you can work through your own frustrations to arrive at new thinking and new actions to solve major problems - one at a time. For anyone in a relationship that needs major repairs - or just a little TLC - here is the ultimate do-it-yourself guide.

So very helpful!

Where does How One of You Can Bring the Two of You Together rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This book gave me hope, and a lot of wisdom and insight into changing my behavior which then changes my partners behavior.

What was one of the most memorable moments of How One of You Can Bring the Two of You Together?

There are many helpful stories, however the one that stood out was about agreeing in an argument to at least some of your partners concerns and how this will soften them and help them feel understood.

Have you listened to any of Susan Page’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have not, but Susan has a soothing voice and even when I speak to my partner, I can hear her tone in my mind as a gentle reminder to choose my words carefully and speak in a calm and caring manner.

What did you learn from How One of You Can Bring the Two of You Together that you would use in your daily life?

You do have power and control by first looking to yourself.

Not too helpful

I didn't find this book very helpful. Some reasonable suggestions were given, but more so the authors droning voice was not engaging and I found myself hoping the lecture would soon end.
Not sure I would try another by this author.

We'll see if it works. I know it's got to help.

Nice listen well see how it works. I know I was the one who failed and didn't realize to do anything till she completely quit. I just hope it's not to late. I wish I would of found this and heard it sooner that definatly would of helped.

Couldn't get past the first chapter

Would you try another book from Susan Page and/or Susan Page?

I feel like this author spends the first chapter talking about how qualified she is to tell us how to fix a relationship on our own. Her voice is annoying to me as well. Sounds like something from the late 70s/early 80s as far as recordings go. Sorry I spent the credit on this.

There is hope

This positive book inspired me to keep trying. Very good, practical and applicable information. Very common sense.
