My wife and I were literally in the process of filing for divorce, someone recommended to us this book and we are now still married happily as ever (and with a better sex life)

I read this book in the late 70's at the age of 25 after my divorce. It lives up to its claim that you will be able to read about yourself, your parents and many others around you. It helped me understand the reasons why some relationships went sour and why I wanted others to. Also, the writing style is very entertaining. I have recommended this book to many friends that have found themselves in a similar situation.

A wonderfully eye-opening experience into the working intricasies of the long term relationship. Why we do the things we do depending upon the type of personalities that we have and how that relates to our partners.A definition of ourselves, the different stages of the relationship and the reasons behind them.

I think anyone who is either homosexual, heterosexual or bisexual should read this book because there isn't a person in the world whose sex life would not be improved by this book

There is a lot of generalizations. It's really a lot of pop psychology! No one person fits any one of these descriptions totally. Everyone is a little of this and a little of that!
