Summary: In 1994, Dr. John Gottman and his colleagues at the University of Washingto made a startling announcement: Through scientific observation and mathematical analysis, they could predictwith more than 90 percent accuracywhether 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 Gottman mores, together with the Love Lab research facility, have put these ideas into practice. InTen Lessons to Transform Your Marriage, the Gottmans share this vital information so that couples can develop the skills to turn their relationship problems around and create strong, lasting unions. What emerged from the Gottmans' collaboration and decades of research is a body of advice that's based on two surprisingly simple truths: Happily married couples behave like good friends, and they handle their conflicts in gentle, positive ways. The authors offer an intimate look at ten couples who have learned to work through potentially destructive problemsextramarital affairs, workaholism, parenthood adjustments, serious illnesses, lack of intimacyand examine what they've done to improve communication and get their marriages back on track. Giving an insider's view of the Love Lab, the Gottmans take the reader step-by-step through the couples' conversations, before and after they are counseled. The authors also provide an analysis of the couples' interactions, identifying their core problems and offering suggestions for resolving them. By ''listening'' to the discussions in this way, you will learn to detect the most common stumbling blocks of a relationship andmost importanthow to avoid them. Hundreds of thousands have seen their relationships improve thanks to the Gottmans' work. Whether you want to make a strong relationship more fulfilling or rescue one that's headed for disaster,Ten Lessons to Transform Your Marriageis essential reading.
