Must know stuff

Would you listen to Making Marriage Work again? Why?

Yes, I think I am going to listen to it a few more times because it has advice obtained scientifically through a lengthy and thorough study. It doesn't give a lot of complicated tips and hints you have to have faith in. It rather tells you what it has been observed to work empirically and you can trust without faith.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

It is quite short, so you definitely want to listen in one sitting. Then, listen to it again on a different day.

Best 46 minutes you will ever spend

Highly recommended. Clear, concise and a perfect summary of his longer works. It covers what makes relationships work and what ensures they do not succeed. Good introduction to the rest of Gottman's work. Packed with his key ideas in a nutshell. It helps to hear the author himself give this talk. Seems like a nice bloke. I have all his works and have studied his research.
