Book Review - Love That Works

About the Book
“The best thing for a father to do for his children is to love their mother.” If your baby could talk, this is what s/he would say to you, for as you know, many parents discover how easy it is to focus much of their love and attention on their children to the detriment of their primary relationship. Sadly, it is often the most intimate connections in these relationships that are affected first… An unhealthy sex life is often cited as the reason that most couples leave each other and can turn what was once a passionate intimate life into co-existence in a heartbeat. Many times both parents, who are working as fast as they can to keep the family going, are often mystified by their partner’s growing discontent and have no idea how to make the changes that could make a difference for their relationship. I am sure your readers would be interested in learning the relationship skills that make maintaining a healthy long-term intimate life second nature. Wendy Strgar’s writing on love that works offers the tools and insights that can transform challenging relating into opportunities for growth and intimacy.

Wendy Strgar and her husband Franc have raised 4 children throughout the course of their 30- year marriage and enjoy a passionate and vital intimate life. Wendy’s book Love That Works: A Guide to Enduring Intimacy has the answers you’re looking for to any of your relationship and intimacy questions. Critically acclaimed as the “quintessential relationship guide,” the book debunks the social mythology of soul mates and perfect partnerships that distract from the real work of loving. With a combination of memoir, stories and practical love skills, Love That Works’ primary premise is that committed relationships work best when we approach them as a method of personal growth.

Love That Works is based on Wendy’s own personal work on her marriage, as well as her work with thousands of couples nationwide, while building her organic love product business: Good Clean Love. Founded in 2003 due to her sensitivities to mainstream intimacy products, Good Clean Love has blossomed into an award-winning business that sells organic intimacy products with no petrochemicals or parabens globally. Its sister site, The Good Clean Love Daily, also hosts award-winning educational resources, including Wendy’s critically acclaimed blogs like Making Love Sustainable.

My Take on the Book
As a man I have to say that reading relationship book is not something I do a lot, but in looking at this book I have to say that the author does a great job at getting both men and women to explore their relationships and what makes them strong and what can break them down. The book was an engaging one and it was like you were sitting listening to the author in the room as she shared her knowledge. The book was easy to understand and that author has done a great job at sharing practical experiences and ideas that all will be able to understand and implement. The book was a quick read and though I can see that you may want to read this again and again, the book itself lends itself to this too. All-in-all this was a great book that can only strengthen your relationship with your significant other!
