The book provides engaging anecdotes from his own life and from his twenty-plus years as a relationship coach. I appreciated how he wove both classic psychology (e.g. the importance of one’s family of origin) and contemporary studies (e.g. the psychology of happiness and the importance of vulnerability) into his experiences to back up what he was talking about. Geoff also provides tools for assessing your relationship, and exercises designed to bring you back online, so to speak, culminating in six key pathways to keeping the relationship going. If you enjoyed Brené Brown’s Power of Vulnerability, or if you’re looking for a perspective that doesn’t frame a relationship in terms of “fighting to get what you want” or "getting what you deserve", but rather acknowledges the difficult/rewarding work of maintaining healthy relationships with another human being, then try this book.
We all want a relationship with our partner that has passion, honesty, compassion and companionship. For that, you have two choices. You can wish and wait for a dream to come true. Or you can read this book and learn how to create that strong, intimate and mutually desired connection with your spouse that you’ve always wanted.
From a lifetime of working in the trenches and hearing all the stories/excuses told out loud to a therapist, Laughton delivers the best of insights in how to look at your relationship in a whole new light, and the practical steps to get you to the place in your heart and your life where you truly want to be. This book will shift your perspective, help you overcome the negative biases that you have about what is not possible and leads you to a new belief of what could be possible and real and joyous between you and that other very special person in your life.
