The Secrets of Enduring Love: How to make relationships last Kindle Edition
The Secrets of Enduring Love focuses on what couples actually do to maintain, nurture and nourish their relationships. The reader will be taken on a journey through different ways of doing relationships, focusing on the key themes which came out of the research: everyday acts of kindness and appreciation; the importance of home; communication and conflict management; sex and intimacy; incorporating others into the relationship (children, pets, friends, hobbies); and telling your own love story.
One of the key messages from the research is that different things work for different people, and at different times in the relationship. For this reason the book focuses on the differnt practices that we might bring into our own relationships, helping us to recognise the small things which we may be already doing but which ordinarily go by unnoticed, and offering a helping hand to find out what works best for us.

About the author
Top reviews from other countries
Der Schreibstil ist sehr monoton und der Titel leider irreführend. Dort werden keine Geheimnisse offenbart und es wird nicht erklärt, wie man selbst seine eigene Beziehung verbessern kann.
Im Großen und Ganzen fand ich das Buch etwas enttäuschend. Ich empfehle dagegen Christoph Joseph Ahlers oder David Scharch .
I was so wrong. It's a soggy self-help book. The volunteers have been mined for case-history anecdotes. So if you want to know that it's better to keep the burned marmite toast for yourself, and serve the perfect one to your partner, (p. 29), I can't recommend this book highly enough.
