Clarity and sense Dec 18, 2006
I appreciate Jack and Corrine's book because it focuses on how an individual can work to improve a relationship. There's not a whole lot of psychobabble here; it's not all about how you were raised or when you were toilet trained. The authors take a practical look at how to use compassion, trust and good listening skills to cement the bonds of love in marriage.
This book is a follow up from an earlier book in which some of the same HEART principles are used in business. That's important to know, because the main message here is that the principles taught in this book are universal.
The last point for potential readers of this book is that it is told as a story, not a text book. While I usually am turned off by preachy books, this book didn't come across that way. It's as if the authors decided that they would build on a story to help the main messages sink in better. I think it works!
Most useful book for couples Nov 28, 2006
I'm a life coach, and I read a lot of books on relationships. I just finished reading Rosenblum and Dugas's book. It's great.
I'm a big John Gottman fan. Gottman's Seven Keys to Successful Marriage explains the dynamics of couples better than any other book, and it's based on scientific observation which is also unique. Until now, it has always been my first recommendation to clients or friends with couples issues.
Now, I think Five Secrets will overtake Seven Keys as my first recommendation to couples with challenges. It's more user friendly and therefore usable. When I have a client in the midst of troubles, someone that needs strategies to get to the heart of things right away, I will share the five secrets of marriage from the heart, and suggest that s/he read the book. It sets forth a clearer, immediately implementable approach.
Not just for the married Sep 19, 2006
This book is straightforward, accessible and can be read in one sitting. The skills demonstrated through the story of a busy married couple going through a difficult time, are vital to any relationship. I was able to apply them immediately in my life.
I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to nourish their personal relationships-- It's not just for the married!

5 Secrets of "Communication" in general Aug 31, 2006
I found this book extremely valuable because it actually provided "tools" that can be used to better communicate in general - not just with your spouse. This book does more than just provide you communication tools. It does a great job of applying them through a simple and understandable story line. As I read the book, I kept thinking that anybody managing others in a workplace would probably find that this book - and the "5 Secrets" within it - could greatly improve their communication with others. Managers should learn these "5 Secrets" and pass the knowledge on!
