I'm taking a marriage class this semester and this is one of our texts. As you've probably noticed, I don't read a lot of self-help type books. I'm not a non-fiction kind of girl. But now that I've read this, I think that I should definitely add a little more non-fiction into the mix. I really enjoyed this book and felt enlightened by it. I think that Gottman has some seriously good common sense and lots of research to back it up and I learned a lot from this book. It surprised me. Now, if you're reading this and you know of other similar books that you've liked, leave me a comment and let me know. I'd like to find some good ones, and I'm particularly interested in finding some good parenting books.
