The Handbook for Increasing Your Relationship IQ offers insights into the familiar and often misunderstood pitfalls that can undermine even the most successful intimate relationships.
Rather than rehash typical advice for couples, Edward L. Fairley offers some unexpected twists to conventional thinking that provide the reader with what sounds and feels like "inside information" even about the most intimate of communications. He does not shy away from specific instructions about how to navigate sexual intimacy and communicate differences in assumptions, interpretations, and expectations.
A self-described observer of relationships, Fairley supplies examples of people in various situations with differing consequences, and provides alternative approaches and solutions. By "seeing" through the eyes of others, the author is able to simplify the complex dynamics of love, romance, and marriage, and the powerful result is practical and engaging.
Edward L. Fairley condenses a great deal of common sense and timely relationship advice into this compact volume. His wise counsel is particularly appropriate for young people, but is equally relevant for anyone pursuing, or already in, a committed relationship.
