Title: KeepingScore: A Guide to Love and Relationships
Author: Mark Brackett
Review: This is a great book for people looking to improve their relationships. I think the scoring things will add a bit of competition to the process which may be great for certain individuals. Some men may enjoy getting competitive and some women. I’m not competitive, but it is easy to read a score and then find out what that means. With so many ‘Self-Help’ books out there it is difficult to wade though and find the best ones for you to read and follow.
Men and women communicate differently and they see situations differently. That is the cause of most problems in a relationship. Women may read something into the relationship that isn’t there, or a man may ignore the things that the others finds important. Either partner may be unaware of the others unhappiness. Communication is important and yet how often do we sit and really talk to our partner?
If you are willing to look for ways to improve your relationship…such as picking up this book then you are doing something positive for your partnership. Any positive step is a step in the right direction. Keep it up and things, if you are both willing to work on it, will get better.
