Editorial Reviews

Review

Gottman has produced a delightfully well researched, sensitive study of marital processes related to divorce....Anyone who is interested in marital processes and their dynamics will like this work.
CHOICE

Bringing together empirical data and insightful theory development from a 20-year research program, this volume will quickly become an essential classic for all professionals interested in marriage, and required reading for graduate students....the author has constructed a rich, in-depth volume that thoroughly explains his creative work....Every chapter is ripe with insight, solidly based empirical data, sound theory development, and suggestions for application....this volume is a major contribution to the understanding of marriage and marital dissolution processes.
Journal of Marriage and the Family

There is a wealth of valuable detail in this book....Gottman has provided an abundance of ideas that may stimulate thought by both researchers and therapists....Marital therapists, guided by the findings, can be more alert to the trajectories their client couples are following and possibly teach some of their clients more effective communication skills that may deflect them from the path of dissolution...

Format: Hardcover
Gottman's 1994 book comes on the heels of groundbreaking work in behavioral observation methodologies. Trained as a mathematician, Gottman spares us no quantified details. However, quantification and reliable measurement are the indispensible components of good scientific research of which Gottman's work is a nearly overwhelmingly thorough example. Gottman takes us back stage to the development and the testing of hypotheses about what makes marriages tick and what makes them wind down in very convincing fashion. I lecture from this text in my university course and student attention is usually very high and they ask many questions. The fact that Gottman can predict marital dissolution, in some instances, at better than 90%, is itself a testament to his rigourous and insightful work. Isn't that one of the main points of science: to predict?

Gottman presents a thorough look at the methodology used in his studies of marital interation and divorce prediction. I believe this text is a must for the bookshelves of professional researchers. Laypersons might enjoy his trade books written with Nan Silver.
