    A user guide for humans! An incredibly powerful book IF you do the work. Jayson has delved deeply into finding out what makes for great relationship. From therapy and neurobiology, to relational studies and developmental psychology. Standing on the shoulders of giants Jayson has learned from the best and studied with many of the Greats. There's not a stone left unturned. A veritable wealth of experience in here, nuggets of gold from decades of study, and self-experimentation, all presented in a A user guide for humans! An incredibly powerful book IF you do the work. Jayson has delved deeply into finding out what makes for great relationship. From therapy and neurobiology, to relational studies and developmental psychology. Standing on the shoulders of giants Jayson has learned from the best and studied with many of the Greats. There's not a stone left unturned. A veritable wealth of experience in here, nuggets of gold from decades of study, and self-experimentation, all presented in a graspable way. He's filled the book with analogies and examples that help remind us of the tools. There are useful action points at the end of each chapter to help us integrate the lessons. There is no fantasy offered here, no illusion of it being easy, no shortcuts. A roadmap that if navigated together, will lead through trials and discomfort to some kinda fabulous (one that embraces conflict and difficult conversations all the way). To top it off, Jayson admits, even though he and his partner are deeply embedded in this work they still face issues and annoyances (often)... there's something fabulously human and realistic about that. No fantasy of perfection. The realness of a dance that might well include the occasional foot-stomper or fall. But a dance that has grace and kindness and moments of magic.

    Edit because I didn't realize how new this book was/is when I read it. What if you have just "let something go" or your partner never comes back to finish the argument once it starts. How can you recognize when your scared animal takes over and you need a break to not damage your relationship with harsh words that don't even address the heart of the matter. When should you make a decision that a relationship isn't worth saving? All of these concepts are talked about in this book with action steps Edit because I didn't realize how new this book was/is when I read it. What if you have just "let something go" or your partner never comes back to finish the argument once it starts. How can you recognize when your scared animal takes over and you need a break to not damage your relationship with harsh words that don't even address the heart of the matter. When should you make a decision that a relationship isn't worth saving? All of these concepts are talked about in this book with action steps to help improve them. There are a lot of really good action steps, the author even states it is best when read with a group or another person to help make it actionable. I checked out the audiobook via my library, and really liked it, but would suggest getting a hard copy or digital so you can go back and reference what is written and will help with setting up the exercises (though the audio book does a good job with the word pictures it creates) It definitely opened my eyes to ways I have as well as my significant other have been interacting and why we haven't always been effective at conflict.

    This book is loaded with useful information and action steps for readers looking to learn and grow in their intimate relationships. Some of the examples and anecdotes felt a bit long or wordy to me partially because I'm pretty familiar with some of these concepts but I think they would be beneficial for those who need a bit more context. Overall, I think this book will be a great asset to refer back to over time. Thank you to Hachette Go for my gifted copy. All views and opinions are my own.
