The authors explore and very clearly explain the complex variables that contribute to relationship formation, functioning, conflict and conflict resolution. They focus on ways healthy relationships can be created and maintained. They consider the fact that the differences that attract persons to each other can create difficulties as well as opportunities.
The book spells out exactly what attracts people to one another and what people might expect or hope for, that could encourage them to stay with and work on their relationship, and also strips away all of the complicated rhetoric and fear that surrounds the topic of a relationship and goes directly to the essence of the interaction between two people. Anyone who wants to learn more about themselves and what to look for in a relationship can benefit from it.
