Publisher Comments:

In 1994, Dr. John Gottman and his colleagues at the University of Washingto& #8212; made a startling announcement: Through scientific observation and mathematical analysis, they could predict& #8212; with more than 90 percent accuracy& #8212; whether a marriage would succeed or fail. The only thing they did not yet know was how to turn a failing marriage into a successful one, so Gottman teamed up with his clinical psychologist wife, Dr. Julie Schwartz Gottman, to develop intervention methods. Now the Gottmans, together with the Love Lab research facility, have put these ideas into practice.

The authors offer an intimate look at ten couples who have learned to work through potentially destructive problems& #8212; extramarital affairs, workaholism, parenthood adjustments, serious illnesses, lack of intimacy& #8212; and examine what they& #8217; ve done to improve communication and get their marriages back on track. < br> < br> Giving an insider& #8217; s view of the Love Lab, the Gottmans take the reader step-by-step through the couples& #8217; conversations, before and after they are counseled.
