He Wins, She Wins by Willard F. Harley, Jr

Review: Well, I already have the perfect man. Yes, there is such a thing as a perfect man. Sorry ladies, he's MINE. Yes, I have a wonderful man. But unfortunately, a relationship is made out of TWO people, and I've been known to have temper tantrums, stalk out of the room hollering in frustration, use the "Everything's fine!" when everything is NOT fine, and put my own interests first. So for me, this book had some very insightful points that prompted me to do a bit of (uncomfortable) self-examination. I would recommend this book to any man or women seeking to improve their relationship.

Back Cover: You've probably heard a lot of advice on how to resolve conflicts in your marriage. What you may not know is that if a resolution comes only in order to keep the peace, it's no resolution at all. Marriage expert Willard F. Harley, Jr., says there's a better way.

What's different about the He Wins, She Wins approach is the ultimate goal - for you and your spouse to grow in your love for each other. This win-win model for negotiation starts with a simple rule: Never do anything without an enthusiastic agreement between you and your spouse. 

Think that sounds impossible? In this book, Dr. Harley will show you how it's been done in his marriage of over fifty years - and in the marriages of the thousands of couples he's counselled. He'll explain the art of marital negotiation, show you how to resolve common conflicts the right way, and help you overcome these common obstacles:

- Emotional factions are preventing calm discussion
- Neither of you wants to talk about an issue
- One or both of you are indecisive
- One of you is happy with the status quo
- Being enthusiastic about anything doesn't seem possible.
