“This is the best book on relationships I have ever read. . . . John Gottman has decoded the subtle secrets that can either enrich or destroy the quality of our ties with others.” Daniel B. Wile, Ph.D., author of After the Fight: Using Your Disagreements to Build a Stronger Relationship

“John Gottman is our leading explorer of the inner world of relationships. In The Relationship Cure, he has found gold once again.”William J. Doherty, Ph.D., author of Take Back Your Marriage: Sticking Together in a World That Pulls Us Apart

“When he says his five steps will help you build better connections with the people you care about, you know that they have been demonstrated to work.” E. Mavis Heatherington, Ph.D., professor of psychology, University of Virginia

From the country’s foremost relationship expert and New York Times bestselling author Dr. John M. Gottman comes a powerful, simple five-step program, based on twenty years of innovative research, for greatly improving all of the relationships in your life—with spouses and lovers, children, siblings, and even your colleagues at work. In The Relationship Cure, Dr. Gottman:

* Reveals the key elements of healthy relationships, emphasizing the importance of what he calls “emotional connection”
* Introduces the powerful new concept of the emotional “bid,” the fundamental unit of emotional connection

“I think that John Gottman is brilliant. This is technically a self-help book, but the reader gets a treat because Gottman backs up everything with solid research, unlike pop psychologists like John Gray. When reading this book I found myself thinking back to several situations in my own life with a renewed perspective. The simple and practical principles in this book will be of benefit to myself and my clients.” – Marco New York, NY

“I picked up this book not because I have particular trouble with relationships but because I immensely enjoyed the first book of Gottman’s that I read (Raising an Emotionally Intelligent Child). As such, I found the book to be a bit uninteresting at times and, admittedly, I could not bring myself to finish the book. That said, I still rate this book a “3” because it has great insights into the basic building block of relationships (the “bid”), and I am a much better person because of it. I now have a better understanding of my own past and upbringing.

As usual, Gottman’s work is backed up by his extensive and thorough clinical work. There are LOTS of exercises in the book that, depending on your own personal situation, you will find either extremely useful and relevant, or boring, pointless, and annoying. I still feel Gottman is a very good writer with very interesting things to say.” – Bernard Miami, FL
