Editorial Reviews


"If you're one part of a dual-career couple, Couples That Work by Jennifer Petriglieri is a must-read." — Forbes

"In her illuminating debut, Petriglieri, professor of Organizational Behavior at European graduate school INSEAD, lucidly analyzes the phases of contentment and consternation that professional couples experience.

Petriglieri's guidance will provide readers with practical strategies for establishing a healthy, supportive, and flexible bond with their partner." -- Publisher's Weekly
