Publisher's Summary

Unlike most relationship counselors, Dr. Pransky doesn't recommend "working" on a relationship. In this book, he challenges everything you thought you knew about how to be happy with your partner. Each chapter exposes a popular but destructive misconception about relationships and provides a new understanding that can give troubled couples the fresh start they need.

Subpar narration AND audio quality

Heard great things about the content. Got the audio book for a long drive. Really tough to listen to such bad quality audio.

Additionally to technically low level of audio quality, this is not a professional narrator voice or enunciation, which makes this difficult to listen to even more. Hard work to hear it. The equivalent of a physical book with blurry printing.

Compared to the bar today for audiobooks this is very low quality.

Good content with poor audio quality

Great content with lots of insights. However the narration could improve and the audio quality was very poor.

The reader isn’t good - content is great

The reader isn’t good - content is great and valuable. The way he reads it, the pauses and his accent and cadence makes it hard to get into it

Made a big difference for me

The Relationship Handbook has helped me create harmony in important relationships of mine since pretty much the first couple or chapters. I was holding resentment towards friends and family and I've been able to clear it out, which has had an immediate positive impact in those relationships. It's not a book just for couples, it's ideas serve for all kinds of relationships.

I give 4 stars to the performance because the narrator's pronunciation is slightly sloppy at times and I had to "listen harder" to understand some words. This audiobook would also gain a lot in quality if it was rerecorded in a professional studio, the reverberation shouldn't be there. In spite of all this, the pacing is great, the little pauses between sentences makes it easier for the ideas to sink in.

The book also features several consultation conversations that help substantially to understand the principles. This to me is one of the strongest points of it. Plus, there are some ideas in this book that I heard before but couldn't properly grasp until I read them in the words of the author. All in all, it's an epic book.

Narrator

Love the content narrator is somewhat hard to understand. Some words he read were hard to make out. I had to concentrate hard to understand him.

wonderful book - real shame about the presentation

This is a remarkable, life-changing book that has impacted so many people over the last two and half decades, and I was very happy to see it finally make an appearance in audio form on Audible. However the presentation really is way below the standard most regular Audible listeners have come to expect, voiced by a non-professional reader and recorded in what sounds like a bedroom (with occasional background noises) rather than a sound studio. This is a shame as I can't help feel it will put many listeners off what is actually such a gem of a book. It deserves better!

Very enjoyable read, a thought provoking book which I will read again for clarity

Immensely thought provoking book, helping the reader to see things more clearly. Looking at their own relationships in a new way.
