Conflicts in our closest relationships are scary because so much is at stake. If the conflict doesn't go well, we could lose our marriage, our family or our job, all connected to our security and survival. So we do just about anything not to lose those relationships, including avoid conflict, betraying ourselves or becoming dishonest. Unresolved conflict affects every single aspect of our lives, from self-confidence to physical and mental health.
Jayson Gaddis is a personal trainer for relationships and one of the world’s leading authorities on interpersonal conflict. For almost two decades, Gaddis has helped individuals, couples, and teams get to the bottom of their deepest conflicts. He helps people see the wisdom in conflict and how to get to zero—which means we have successfully worked through our conflict and have nothing in the way of a good connection.
In Getting to Zero, Gaddis shows the reader how to stop running away from uncomfortable conversations and instead learn how to work through them. Through funny personal stories, uncomfortable examples, and effective tools and skills, he shows the reader how to move from disconnection to connection, acceptance, and understanding. This method upgrades the old tired and static conflict resolution approaches and offers a fresh, street-level, user-friendly road map on exactly how to work through conflict with the people you care most about.

I always want to find some positivity to take away from books though so here are some good things from this book:
1. If addressed in a healthy way, followed by “getting back to zero,” conflict in any relationship is an opportunity to build and create a deeper and more genuine connection.
2. When we can move out of the “valley of victimhood” and into the “author” mindset we create an opportunity for growth and genuine connection.
Smart, on point and so true.
You should definitely be ready and willing to understand how everything connects and why things are the way they are. I can highly recommend this book if you're looking to save your relationship or improve future encounters.
