Summary

Discover the secrets to building healthy, happy, and rewarding relationships.

We all want that special someone who's going to love us unconditionally, honor us, and accept us for just being who we are. Authentic love and connection are enormously powerful bonds between two people.

Unfortunately though, if we've had more than our fair share of bad relationships through our lifetime. Then it can become easy to suspect there’s no right person, just many different alternatives of wrong.

We have a staggering divorce rate, which causes untold damage to the partners and even more so to their children. It is common, perhaps expected, for relationships to suffer from maladaptive patterns over time (it's like a car that needs maintenance) and these are fixable when both partners do the work.

Our interpersonal relationships start forming as soon as we’re born, and psychologists have studied how those early connections can set the stage for the other relationships we form later in life. The attachment theory argues that a strong emotional and physical bond to one primary caregiver in our first years of life is critical to our development.

Change the way you view every type of relationship you have ever had and will ever have.

Make healthier choices in choosing who to date, and discover a new dimension of connection, where relationships can become an institution for unlimited creativity, fulfillment, intimacy, and love.

If you are in a relationship, this book will show you how to examine the unknown path that you'll travel with your spouse and carefully evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of your relationship. If you are single, this book will help you to become clear and define what you want in your ideal future partner and also what you don't want!

The key ingredient to happy and fulfilled people is the quality of their intimate, social, family, and professional relationships - nothing else in life comes even remotely close.

Go ahead, transform the quality of your relationships and make love work for you. Just scroll up and click "add to cart".

Not recommended!

The author has a very judgemental approach to parents and partners. She uses old fashioned gender stereotypes to define relationships “when the man talks about cars you will get bored; when the woman talks about flowers and gardening he will get bored”. She refers to traumatised children as “manipulative” and is parent-blaming. She makes several references to God, which jars with the title of the book ‘the SCIENCE of successful relationships’ and she passes her own misinformed beliefs off as factual. As somebody who has worked in the field of attachment for many years, this book does not represent what is currently known about attachment theory and instead represents the authors own narrow beliefs and views.

Angry Author and Sneaky Christian Marketing

Despite a long and seemingly thorough Publisher's Summary that emphasized the science behind attachment theory, not a word about God or Christianity was mentioned. Yet in the first 3 minutes of this book, we are told twice how God has designed us for relationships. That's where I stopped listening.

If the author and publisher are so proud about writing a book with Christian themes, then they should be honest about it in the description. I would not have agreed to review this book had that been the case.

In short, if you are wondering what God has to do with a book based on science, then this is not the book for you.

An ARC of this book was given to me, but that obviously did not affect my review.

Just for the record, the author seems to be under the misguided and entitled impression that giving people advanced copies of his book in exchange for honest reviews means that his book automatically deserves 5 stars. Woe to the inboxes of reviewers who disappoint him.

It’s a parenting book

The book description doesn’t mention anything about parenting but the longest chapters are about parenting and the others are about very specific type of relationships. Such a waste of time and money
