There is something about the books coming out of Prentiss Productions. Each book I read seems to evoke growth, awareness, and happiness. To create and maintain this type of perspective to share with the world is a true gift. I am an avid reader, but few writers elevate my consciousness and level of overall happiness. Each book provides life lessons ripe for adoption and bring a combination of joy and awe into my life. I found the passage Chris shared with his wife to be incredible. I sat down and wrote a letter to the love of my life about the love we will share. The book provided insight into what it takes to keep love alive. Thank you for sharing and providing assistance on my personal journey to forgive and appreciate the Dealbreakers of the past (mine and theirs). Thank you.

Format: Paperback
Chris Prentiss' highly anticipated new book, Laws of Love, is inspirational, life-changing, and inarguably one of his best works to date. Prentiss truly teaches you the right steps to take to ensure a loving, successful relationship for yourself and your partner; he also shows you how to heal unhealthy patterns from the past and realize who is your ideal partner and why. Great relationships are not an accident, and the sacred space we use to create these relationships is often forgotten, neglected or unknown. This wise, practical, and engaging new read can help save relationships, create new and lasting ones, and/or help you get to the place where you have always belonged. Whether you're single, looking, married and/or dating, this is an entirely new approach to "LOVE." I highly recommend it to anyone and everyone.

I find Zen and the Art of Happiness, Chris Prentiss's earlier book, so helpful that I take it with me on trips to keep me centered. I have learned a tremendous amount from Be Who You Want, Have What You Want. I bought The Laws of Love thinking it wouldn't be too different from his earlier works, but be at least as good. Unfortunately, it's not. The first weakness is organization. Prentiss's emphasis, as always, is on becoming the kind of person who is happy, ethical, and loving. You therefore will draw into your life the love you want, because you know how to give it. It would have been useful, then, if Prentiss had grouped the laws about being and becoming a happy, ethical, loving person earlier, before ones having to do with a relationship you're already in. Unfortunately, the arrangement in the book is haphazard, and weakens the points Prentiss makes.

The second problem has to do with Prentiss's conviction that, in order for a love relationship to succeed fully, it must be the most important thing in your life. Making your lover happy must be your first priority. If something else--a job, a hobby--is not compatible with your relationship, it must go. If you get a wonderful job offer and your spouse doesn't want the move it will entail (the example Prentiss uses),you must refuse the job, Surely, there are some circumstances under which the right thing to do is to refuse the offer. But there's more--much, much more--to be said about how to discuss this, about how to weigh what's important to each of you, about how to decide whether there are ways for each of you to have what truly matters to you, than Prentiss says.

In this wise little book Chris Prentiss shows that we create our relationships -- they don't just happen by accident. Small acts of kindness and gentle generosity can make all the difference in keeping our love and our relationships alive. Something as simple as asking our partner what they need from us when we find ourselves having a disagreement can work wonders. Prentiss shares 14 Laws of Love that will enable you and your loved one to sustain a tender relationship and a deeper love. Highly recommended!

My husband and I have been reading this book together. We have already been making changes in the way we think about events within our personal relationship. As a result, our relationship has improved. My husband purchased three more books to give as gifts to friends and family we think can benefit from the same changes that improved our relationship. We cannot ask for more, it is a blessing.

Very impressed with the clear, simple verbiage and common sense tips that bring it all home. I have learned so much from reading this book! I also like the smaller size of the book and short pages. Makes it an easy read and allows you to retain much more. This book has already helped me see some things that I can use to aid in improving my relationships.

4 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Mary Lavers (in Canada) on October 30, 2012
Format: Paperback
The Laws of Love is a relationship self-help book that has liberal amounts of "trendy fad gimmick" and fairly solid advice, so it's worth taking with a proverbial grain of salt. It's sort of a twelve-step program for healthy romantic relationships except instead of twelve steps there are fourteen "laws of love." The "trendy fad gimmick" is that these "laws" claim to be inspired by the fundamental laws of the universe.

Just as there are Universal Laws of Physics (such as gravity and inertia), the author argues, so too are there Universal Laws of Metaphysics (such as be nice and people will like you, tell lies and people will distrust you). While the logic of this is seductive, it's also hopelessly flawed. Newton's Laws were never meant to be applied this way and I think the author knows it. Saying something is true because it resembles something else that is known to be true is not science. It's not even pseudoscience. It's simply an attempt to borrow scientific principals to make one's own claim seem weightier, like when shampoo commercials brag about pH balance. And when the author attempts to refute chaos theory as a way to allay people's relationship anxiety, well, I laughed out loud at his wilful ignorance.
Nonetheless, the book is not without merit. There are some solid points hidden among the nonsense like the idea that the only thing each of us truly can control is ourselves--our own actions and reactions--and we should focus first on our own choices before lamenting that we can't get our partners to do what we want.

And I do see some value in the externalization of causation that the book proposes. It doesn't say "it's God's will" nor does it say "nothing is your fault because everything is up to the Universe.
