One Stop Resource for improving your relationship

I found this book useful, inspiring, and immediately implementable. It helped me understand myself, my wife, and what I needed to do to improve my marriage. I would make this required reading by law for anyone married on planning to get married. I would recommend this book to anyone.

Startling, Yet Thrilling!

If you could sum up Getting the Love You Want in three words, what would they be?

I don't think three words are enough for this crazy adventure I just went on.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked how this book was very thorough. The narrator explains how our brains work within our relationships in terms that are easy to understand.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

The Hidden Agenda of Your Subconscious!

Any additional comments?

Though this book seems to be written for couples who are already going through the "power struggle" and learning how to get their relationship back, I decided to give it a try. I'm 27 and currently living with my boyfriend of three years. We have had a great relationship so far but this book taught me some of the underlying tensions that seem to develop over time. An entire new world has just been opened to me and it has terrified me and exhilarated me. I've just learned things about my past that I've never known before and with this new information, I can move forward in my relationship with a better light.
I'm pretty sure everyone can learn something new about themselves with this book. Even if you're single and not even interested in a romantic love right now, the knowledge in this book will put what you need from a relationship in a new perspective. I highly recommend it to every human being.
