I found the interventions mentioned to be relevant and helpful and his explanation of the principals behind them to be concise and meaningful. This is by no means a handbook for a therapist practicing couples therapy, as it is far too brief, but it does contain what might be considered a decent introduction to the idea of solution-focused couples therapy, which I find to be highly effective.
Although the intended audience of this book seems to be psychotherapists who may purchase his other, more expensive works, this book will also be highly effective in helping couples get started in connecting/reconnecting in effective ways. I would absolutely recommend it to any couple. The simple exercises contained in it are worth their weight in gold.
Conclusion: do not hesitate: yes, buy this book. 5 Stars.
*Addendum: This book was inexpensive as is appropriate given it's very short length. In reality, I suspect this book has been published to serve as a subtle sales pitch for the author's other related SFT couples therapy book in the field (Solution Building in Couples Therapy), which costs $55 in paperback ($41.24 on Kindle as of this review), and is almost three times the length at 136 pages. I have literally hundreds of psychology/psychotherapy books, and I have begun being very picky with what I purchase. Do I want the other book? Yes. Would I spent $55 on that 136 page book? Probably not. $41.25? Still, likely not. $12? Yes. A book on this subject by the same author with less than three times the page count should cost less than three times the price, imho. At $55, it seems overpriced. Especially as it sounds like it contains a lot of introductory material for people new to SFT, which I am not. This fact does not affect or detract from the quality of the present book though. This is a great little book.
I am a counselor myself (and married), and I can use this book in both my professional and personal lives. As with anything we read, wisdom is in "the doing!" Not just reading, but putting his book into practice makes all the difference!
I would recommend this book to family, friends. other counselors and anyone wishing to improve their marriage relationship. This book makes working ot your marriage enjoyable. by keeping it simple. KISS(Keep it simple solution) Thank you Elliott
