    DescriptionStraightforward in its approach, yet profound in its effect, the principles outlined in this book teach partners new and startling strategies for making their marriage work. Gottman has scientifically analysed the habits of married couples and established a method of correcting the behaviour that puts thousands of marriages on the rocks. He helps couples focus on each other, on paying attention to the small day-to-day moments that, strung together, make up the heart and soul of any relationship. Packed with questionnaires and exercises whose effectiveness has been proven in Dr Gottman's workshops, this is the definitive guide for anyone who wants their relationship to attain its highest potential. 'An eminently practical guide to an emotionally intelligent - and long-lasting - marriage' Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence

    Review text
    A useful contribution to the wealth of self-help literature on long-term relationships. Gottman's approach is based on detailed study of 700 couples at his Seattle Marital and Family Institute; he concludes that the key to successful marriage is not avoidance of arguments but a sound basis of friendship strong enough to survive inevitable conflicts.
