This companion workbook, Love Skills, is a practical guide to creating and maintaining a loving relationship. Exercises, activities, self-assessments, and other concrete tools allow readers to understand where they are in their relationship. Her well-researched practices help keep love alive in the midst of seemingly intractable differences, and specific, effective solutions to couples' most common struggles provide a clear map for moving forward.
