Rated 4 out of 5 by from Insightful book into relationships! I really enjoyed this book, Esther Perel has done her research and really seems to understand what often happens to couples whilst they are in relationships. It validates many of my own experiences. People are complicated so there is not one definitive solution, she gives us a variety of cases, situations and the creative solutions She guided her clients with. If you are in a new or long term relationship or are wanting to be in one you may get a good deal of insight as to why you repeat certain patterns from one relationship to the next, and have the opportunity to shape the one your in differently.
