I bought this book after a huge row with my wife. I wish I'd bought it earlier. It would have saved me a lot of trouble. This book is practical, challenging, and extremely helpful. It may be short, but it contains essential nuggets of truth that will turn your life the right way up.

I have listened to "Making Marriage Work" several times during my drives to and from work. It's short and relatable. It has helped me to feel hopeful about my relationship when I had been letting myself get bogged down with disappointment and dispair. Working on positive sentiment overload and avoiding the "Four Horsemen of the Apocolypse" have been invaluable tools for me.

Would you listen to Making Marriage Work again? Why?
Yes, I think I am going to listen to it a few more times because it has advice obtained scientifically through a lengthy and thorough study. It doesn't give a lot of complicated tips and hints you have to have faith in. It rather tells you what it has been observed to work empirically and you can trust without faith.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
It is quite short, so you definitely want to listen in one sitting. Then, listen to it again on a different day.
Highly recommended. Clear, concise and a perfect summary of his longer works. It covers what makes relationships work and what ensures they do not succeed. Good introduction to the rest of Gottman's work. Packed with his key ideas in a nutshell. It helps to hear the author himself give this talk. Seems like a nice bloke. I have all his works and have studied his research.
This is like a brief intro into the core aspects and the beginnings of Dr Gottman’s research. He has a humorous and self reflective approach to offering evidence based observations of couples that are working with each other rather than against. Without loaded statements or need for stereotyping he aims to train couples into thinking in a ‘WE’ point of view rather than a He/She and I.
This was a great summary of Gottman's relationship research. Very implementable and an easy listen.
