Format: Paperback
This is an excellent book for couples. If you enjoyed the author's other books, you'll enjoy this one. Not only is the information good, but he has a great sense of humor.

What I really like about this book is that everything is laid out in a schedule. The "Couple's Detox" for example:

Module 1 - Starting Up - Days 1 to 5
Module 2 - Your Sexual Health - Days 6 to 9
Module 3 - Sexual Socialization - Days 10 to 15
Module 4 - Previous Relationships - Days 16 to 20
Module 5 - The Love Map (and How to Navigate It) - Days 21 to 25
Module 6 - Here and Now - Days 26 to 30

If you enjoy something that is very specific on what actions to take, you'll love this book. Just open the book up to the section you're on and do what it says. Easy.

Single? Don't worry. There is also a program in this book for you. :)

This book has been very helpful for me and my husband. The best way to describe it is like "starting over." We've got a blank slate now, which is a lot of fun. We didn't lose the good stuff we had though, if that makes sense. We've got something fresh and exciting now, but also carried things like a foundation of communication and knowing each other, even though there have been times in our relationship where that wasn't always apparent. This book helped to bring the good things out.

It's nice to see books for couples, which are progressive and open-minded. So many I've seen are "faith based" and, in my opinion, don't get to the real heart of the matter. This one does.

If you enjoy this book and are looking for another "couples" book, also with a good sense of humor, definitely check out Just F Me! - What Women Want Men to Know About Taking Control in the Bedroom (A Guide for Couples). Lots of fun. :)

The book is well organized and allows a person to read through section by section understanding the disconnect in intimacy. I highly recommend this book to re-establish a healthy sex life, to establish a respectful way to discuss it with a partner, and to bring yourself closer to understanding your partner and yourself.

I'm only on Day 4, but it is providing amazing insight into my dating life. It forces you to look at things that you have buried and actually face them.
