This book was first published in 1993 and yet is still as popular as it was when it first came out.
Gray calls it “A practical guide for improving communication and getting what you want in your relationships”
I think it is all this and much more. Relationships only work if you both truly want to understand what is important for our partner and how you can meet their needs via communication and behaviour. It is not just about getting what “you” want in a relationship.
This book is excellent at really helping you understand how to bridge the gap that so often appears in many relationships.
However - it is only of use if you BOTH read it. One person on their own cannot mend a relationship. They will end up feeling that they are doing all the work and the compromising, and in the end feel even more upset.
This book is a great read - very easy and understandable - and if you read it together with the intention of improving your relationship, you cannot fail to bring about positive change.
