Editorial Reviews


"Dr Regan skilfully pulls together up-to-date information on the most important work in this area … The chapters are well-structured, easy to read or dip into, and lend themselves well for the use of a scientist-practitioner, with clear examples of real-life relevance and relationship specific psychometric tools used by researchers but equally useful for practitioners … With a multitude of theories, models, research, assessment tools and study guides this book makes an excellent introduction to the study of close personal relationships for all undergraduate and postgraduate psychology students." – Ewa Kremplewska in The Psychologist

"Pamela Regan has given us the book to invite, engage, inspire and instruct the next generations of scholars in the exciting ... work of relationship science. ...Close Relationships informs, challenges, and charms. Our field and our lives can only be better for the comprehensiveness and vision in Dr. Regan's work." -- Ann L. Weber, UNC at Asheville, USA

"This text contributes significantly to the field because of its emphasis on science, research findings, theoretical concepts, and multiple types of relationships. Dr. Regan is a superb writer. ... [It is] most appropriate for a course on Personal Relationships ... [or] ... as a supplementary text for a course on marriage and the family." — Susan Sprecher, Illinois State University, USA

"A ‘reader-friendly’, intelligent review that draws on a range of theoretical perspectives and will appeal to a wide range of undergraduate and graduate students." -- Robin Goodwin, Brunel University, London

"An excellent overview of relationship studies ... the material [is] easy for undergraduates to read and follow. … Dr. Regan writes well ... [and she] is a respected scholar." — Lawrence Ganong, University of Missouri, Columbia, USA

"[This book] offers fascinating examples of studies and findings that make the science of relationships come alive to the reader. It is written in a highly accessible level, appropriate for either graduate or undergraduate uses, or for practitioners who want insight into the state-of-the-art of personal relationship science." --Brian H. Spitzberg, San Diego State University, USA

"The text is written in an engaging, interesting, and utterly comprehensive manner. It is accessible to anyone—from the curious non-academic, to the first year university student, to the professional scholar. Everyone will learn something new about relationships by reading this book, and they will enjoy learning it." —Danu Anthony Stinson, University of Victoria, Canada
