Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A world-renowned relationship expert shares his research about love and what it takes to develop a trustful, intimate, and emotionally fulfilling bond.

In this wise, accessible, and practical book, celebrated research psychologist and couples counselor Dr. John Gottman plumbs the mysteries of love: Where does it come from? Why does some love last, and why does some fade?

Famous for his “Love Lab” at the University of Washington and for being profiled in Malcolm Gladwell’s mega-bestseller Blink, Dr. Gottman has spent thirty-five years deciphering the mysteries of human relationships through scientific research. Now, he applies his surprising findings to one crucial component: trust. Dr. Gottman has developed a formula that precisely calculates any couple’s loyalty level. The results determine a relationship’s likely future, including the potential for one or both partners to stray. Filled with diagnostic tests, prescriptive advice, and simple exercises, this book shows you how to identify signs, behaviors, and attitudes that indicate betrayal—both sexual and non-sexual—and provides the tools for engaging in constructive conflict and building trust.

With a gift for translating complex scientific ideas into insightful advice, Dr. Gottman has written an essential book that guides couples through an empirically tested, confidence-boosting program. What Makes Love Last? will help you reach new levels of trust to build a long-term, intimate, and romantic relationship.
