    One thought on “Secrets of Great Marriages: Real Truth from Real Couples about Lasting Love”

    1. Actually, I thought this book was fantastic. Like some other reviewers, at first I found it trite, but later into the book some real practical wisdom emerged. I truly found couples offering innovative solutions to problems in marriage, personality clashes, interpersonal relations, and communication. It is really up to the reader to take from it what they find most useful in their own marriage and relationships.

    2. Closer to a 2.5, but giving it a 3. I love the concept of this book, and enjoyed reading some of the stories, but I just couldn't really engage with it the way I hoped to. I think a greater diversity of demographics (so many of the couples seemed to come from the counseling/therapy community) would have made the book more interesting for me.

    3. just couldn't get through it. too much anecdote and cliche. i could learn as much about marriages reading facebook statuses.
