book i love: how to say it for couples


This book is great! The author, Dr. Paul Coleman, provides very specific examples of how to communicate in many different situations. From discussing sexual history to fighting about money to listening with love to dealing with the death of a child, this book covers it all. Each brief chapter tells you how to say it, and maybe even more importantly, how to not say it. I think it's a great book that can help couples learn how to communicate with tenderness, openness, and honesty (as the title of the book clearly states).

Below is the description provided by the author:
