For the past 35 years, John Gottman’s research has been internationally recognized for its unprecedented ability to precisely measure interactive processes in couples and to predict the long-term success or failure of relationships. In this groundbreaking book, he presents a new approach to understanding and changing couples: a fundamental social skill called “emotional attunement,” which describes a couple’s ability to fully process and move on from negative emotional events, ultimately creating a stronger relationship.

Amazing book I can't recommend it enough. If I had to pay triple or quadruple for this book I would have considering what it taught me in hindsight. This review is written a solid 3 years after I read it. This will help non romantic relationships just as much.

Why are all the major religions consumed with sex? What makes sex so important, whether Buddhism or Islam, Christianity or Mormonism? What is the impact of religion on human sexuality? This book explores this and more. It ventures into territory that has never been examined. You will be surprised at how much religion has influenced your sexuality, who you marry, the pleasure you get or don't get from sex, and what you can do about it.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Could not read a less research and more opinion based book that relies on racial slurs not based on any scientific research at all.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

I would have the entire thing rewritten and find more scientific proof to back up the distorted logic provided by the author, in fact this book is irresponsible also the tile is not just about god communism is not related to god. This book is simply an attack on religion and has no enlightenment and knowledge value. It seems to be the atheist virus that is pervasive the hatred and atheistic fervour this book tries to convey is dangerous and seems to imply a superiority over religions and the research of islam is non-existent he seems to have made up facts about islam to suit his attack against religion.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Yes

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Sex & God: How Religion Distorts Sexuality?

Everything

Any additional comments?

IT is a ridiculous piece of writing that distorts all religions it is clear the author did little research in science and little research in religion. The author seems to try to belittle religion perhaps he was restricted in his personal sexuality because he was clearly raised as a catholic and the backlash is an attack and dislike of all religions without any research of his topic. lacks science and lacks religious knowledge.
