The author proposes a paradigm shift from “happily ever after” to “creating the best relationship we can possible create” in the present, and then elaborates on how to achieve this one topic at a time. This elucidating and engaging journey through a series of relationships includes topics on; The Male/Female Dynamic, Communication, Compatibility, Giving (and receiving), Power Struggles, Insecurities, and Getting Clear on who you are (to name just a few). However his most important contribution may be his concept of Relationship Agreements, a highly useful template for couples, intended for co-creating their own set of unique guidelines to facilitate having an extraordinary relationship.
In addition to drawing from his own very relatable, sometimes hilarious, and also sometimes painful experiences, he occasionally elaborates on one of his points by referencing another authors’ excellent work, empowering the reader further by providing them with an opportunity to continue expanding their knowledge once they’ve finished reading this book (a detailed list of resources is provided at the end).
Highly recommended for anyone wanting more from their relationships. Read it. Use it.
It “sounds” masculine, in its phrasing, its language, its bluntness. But underneath that is a decidedly feminine perspective. Indeed, a thread that runs through the narrative is stripping away traditional male/female gender roles and exploring how that works within any given relationship. While in some ways, our world is shifting to polar extremes, behind the scenes, there is a shift to a greater awareness not only of self, but of others around us. I see this author attempting to do just that in those relationships that are our most intimate and immediate.
I know I am a better man from reading his book, and the woman in my life is the greatest benefit.... BRAVO 5 STARS only cause there isn't 6
