To read or not to read? My "Brass Tack Summaries" deliver a general understanding of a recommended book so that you can decide for yourself.
The Relationship Handbook challenges everything you thought you knew about how to be happy with your partner.
Each chapter exposes a misconception about relationships and provides a helpful new way to understand how they work...

# Innate wisdom has been lost in the distortion innocently generated by the field of psychology
# Insecurity is the source of all distress and counterproductive behaviour
# The feeling state that you present to people hooks either their ego or their altruism
# Feelings were meant to be a barometer to help us maintain our emotional equilibrium
# Communication isn’t nearly as important as how we feel when we communicate
# Our thought systems obscure the simple, obvious solutions to our problems
# Life looks a certain way to us and we assume that’s the way it really is
# The cure is to understand the psychological forces of thought, feelings and states of mind
# These forces provide joy and satisfaction in life and in relationships
# Thinking is a function that allows every human being to create a personal reality
# Thinking is like breathing ~ we do it continuously from birth to death
# Thinking comes so fast ~ we can’t possibly control it!
# See the drama for what it is: thoughts that only exist as long as you buy into them
# Moods distort our thinking and perceptions
# If couples make allowances for them, moods will have no lasting effect on relationships
# The past is no more real than a dream
# Relationships can always get a fresh start
# Good feelings can be the dominant part of your relationship
# Love is at our core
