Approaching the study of relationships from a psychotherapist's perspective is How to Be an Adult in Relationships: The Five Keys to Mindful Loving. Teacher and writer David Richo gives practical and spiritual exercises for couples and singles who want to have mature and lasting relationships. Emphasizing paying attention and letting go, Richo gently and compassionately coaches readers on what he calls the five A's: attention, acceptance, appreciation, affection and allowing. His book, which proposes "letting go of ego," will help those seeking personal transformation in their relationships. (June)

Sadly, it came a little too late to help my relationship. I honestly, sadly, had no clue that what I was doing in my relationship was pushing my boyfriend further and further away.
I grew up with crappy role models for romantic relationships and have been trying to teach myself for the past 3 years. This book is a god send and has really opened up my eyes on how I can be a better partner. No one ever told me that my SO's feelings and emotions are something I need to care for and honor beside my own heart.
I love the quote of "honoring the 3rd being" (you, them and the relationship youv'e created)
So many people on the planet would benefit from reading this and inserting the suggestions in to their unions. If you long for more harmony in your "love affair", this is a great place to start.
One of the remarkable things about this book is how it has helped me label what I have been experiencing and reframe my understanding in a way that forms a foundation for constructive thought and action, often for issues that are decades old. This is what I hope for in a book, and this book amply delivered. Not that I’m done with it: there is plenty here that I want to return to - the highlights will come in handy.
Next up: How to Be an Adult in Love, his 2014 follow-up to this book.
