With a 50 percent divorce rate in the United States, this is a welcome guide to keeping marriages intact. Weiner-Davis employs solution-oriented brief therapy (SBT) to solve immediate marriage problems, in only four to ten sessions. Unlike conventional, long-term therapy, Weiner-Davis uses very concrete, basic information to work on present and future issues. Remembering and focusing discussions on what worked in a relationship instead of what went wrong is an important element for a positive outcome in SBT. There are some easy answers presented, such as flipping a coin to end disputes or limiting time spent discussing a certain subject. Relationships do not turn around overnight, but a hug or dinner out are small changes for the better. Another title close in theme is George Pransky's Divorce Is Not the Answer (TAB, 1990). Highly recommended for most public libraries.- Lisa Wise, Steele Memorial Lib., Elmira, N.Y.
