"This is a wonderful book. It's full of very good ideas about how to make the partnership you really want--offered by some of the most accomplished couples's therapists of our times. I'll use it for years, both professionally--and in my own relationships." --Helen Fisher, PhD., Biological Anthropologist, author of Why Him, Why Her? Finding Real Love by Understanding Your Personality Type

The answers to the difficulties you are experiencing can be found on the pages of this unique book, which draws on the wisdom of the field's top marital therapists. Buy this book and keep it on your nightstand." --Michele Weiner-Davis, MSW, author of Divorce Busting

"Imagine having the best of the best couples's therapists giving you advice that can save your marriage from disaster, advice that can bring back the sizzle, the romance, the connection that has been lost! The Complete Marriage Counselor: Relationship-Saving Advice from America's Top 50+ Couples Therapists provides just that. If you have even a hint of trouble brewing in your relationship, don't wait for a minute! Grab this book! This unique guidance could help make or break your marriage." --Diana Kirschner, PhD, author of the bestselling Love in 90 Days: The Essential Guide to Finding Your Own True Love

"The Complete Marriage Counselor does more than give us honest insights from a wide range of counselors on everything from sex to money. And it does more than supplement this with Sherry's thoughtful commentary. It gives us pithy discussion points for those fearful of entering counseling, and second-plus opinions for those already involved. The Complete Marriage Counselor is one `counselor' whose price is right: it may be a recession, but there's no need for depression." --Warren Farrell, PhD, author of Women Can't Hear What Men Don't Say and Why Men Are the Way They Are

Format: Paperback
Maybe you all work for the publisher of this book...I don't know. But we were obviously not reading the same book. Quick, overly scientific, generalized answers that do not involve the CONCEPT OF LOVE in any form are not my idea of a great read on saving a marriage. I love the chapter on the woman's husband who was addicted to internet porn- "expert #1" says NO BIG DEAL. IT'S A MAN THING. (Head's up: real MEN who are committed to their wives DO NOT tempt themselves with internet porn. It is nothing but a sick, perverted way to betray your wives. "expert #2" says IT'S REALLY OK, AS LONG AS IT DOESN'T BEGIN TO AFFECT HIS PERFORMANCE AT WORK.

Then there was another chapter on sexual problems in the bedroom, which advised couples to "visit a swingers club". Please excuse me while I go and throw up.

If you believe in the real L-O-V-E thing, this book will make you want to put a gun to your head. Don't waste your time...or your money.

Format: Paperback
Sherry Amatenstein has gathered the wisdom and insights of fifty accomplished therapists here in this book with one goal in mind: to help us all improve and grow that one committed relationship in our lives that means the world to us.

Sherry shows us that there are no issues so big that you cannot overcome them if you are both committed to working through the problem. She also provides guidance and support for those "small" problems that will torpedo any relationship if they are not discussed and dealt with!

In this high-pressure, 21st Century world where the "Ozzie and Harriet" model of domestic bliss and ignorance has been turned inside out - and most of us are discovering that 'Love conquers all" only with a lot of hard work - "The Complete Marriage Counselor" is the owner's manual that should be issued with every marriage license!

Format: Paperback
This is a well-written, compulsively readable and very useful book. Who doesn't want to hear what "the experts" have to say on the kinds of topics that affect the majority of couples who are married or cohabitating? As a psychotherapist and marriage counselor who has been happily married for almost 18 years, I found the questions and answers very illuminating and thought provoking. It's obvious that the therapists who were interviewed for the book have years of experience working with couples, and that they are dealing with "real world" situations (in-laws, money, poor communication)which can cause difficulties in even the happiest of relationships. I also liked seeing that different experts might address the same topic in different ways, showing that there's not always a "right" or "wrong" way to deal with problematic issues. I will definitely recommend this book to my patients!

This book came at the right time, my friend called me and told me that her marriage was in jeopardy, there were a lot of arguments in the house, and she suspected that the husband was seeing somebody, Wow, fortunately I had already ordered this book! I tried to tell her to go see a marriage counselor, but she refused, she said she wanted to deal with me only. I tried my best to assist with what I basically have in my possession, however my copy of The Complete Marriage Counselor arrived just in the nick of time, I flipped a few pages and went straight to the relevant subject O, boy! it was right on point. Now, things look better and there is so much love in the air. it looks like they just met each other! I recommend this book, really. If you are called to help people, this is a must have in your collection.

The Complete Marriage Counselor is really written for everyone whether you are married, in a relationship, dating or single. It's one of those great books that you can pick up at any time, flip through and find some very sound and reasonable advise from many of the countries top couples therapists. Ms. Amenastein has just brought it all together in a concise and non threatening way, especially for men. If you're single, the advise helps you recognize who you are in relationships and become better at them. I've recommended this book to a couple of married friends and they can't wait to get their hands on it!!
Thank you Ms. Amenastein for such an insightful look at common issues that plague us all!!
