Insightful and Easily Understood
If you could sum up Why Marriages Succeed or Fail in three words, what would they be?
Cheap relationship therapy.
Who was your favorite character and why?
There were no characters.
What about Paul Costanzo’s performance did you like?
His voice is very relatable.
What did you learn from Why Marriages Succeed or Fail that you would use in your daily life?
Pretty much everything. The book highlights very common logic errors and character flaws that can wreak havoc on personal relationships. It also assured me that having the specific personality that I do isn't indicative that my personal relationships are doomed forever. Learning to let go of things that don't matter much and how to communicate which things are not negotiable... how mature of me!
Any additional comments?
This book requires a healthy degree of objectivity and self-reflection. Like all self-help type books, it won't change your life. But you will if you decide to internalize any of the sage advice it gives.

Because this book is backed up with scientific evidence, it gives me great confidence in the information it provides. Not only does it provide solid techniques and advise, but it also gives extensive examples of the techniques and advice. I will read this again, and would recommend it to anybody.
