More About Les Parrott & Leslie Parrott

Les Parrott Les and Leslie. A husband-and-wife team who not only share the same name, but the same passion for helping others build healthy relationships. In 1991, the Parrotts founded the Center for Relationship Development on the campus of Seattle Pacific University – a groundbreaking program dedicated to teaching the basics of good relationships.

Married in 1984, the Parrotts bring real-life examples to their speaking platform. Their professional training – Leslie as a marriage and family therapist, and Les as a clinical psychologist – ensures a presentation that is grounded, insightful and cutting-edge. 

Each year Les and Leslie speak in over 40 cities. Their audiences include a wide array of venues, from churches to Fortune 500 company board rooms. The Governor of Oklahoma appointed the Parrotts as the first ever statewide Marriage Ambassadors. Authorities have called upon Les and Leslie to provide on-site support in the aftermath of worldwide disasters such as Ground Zero and Chernobyl. The Commander of the 2nd Battalion, 5th Marines, invited them to assist his soldiers with re-entry into family life upon returning from Iraq. 

Part of Les and Leslie’s vision for building stronger, life-long marriages is to equip a band of more than a million marriage mentors who walk alongside less experienced couples. Research reveals that marriage mentoring is one of the best things we can do to cut the divorce rate and improve marriages – whether couples are engaged, newly married or married of decades.

The Parrotts have been featured in USA Today and the New York Times. Their television appearances include CNN, The View, The O’Reilly Factor, The Today Show and Oprah.

As #1 New York Times best-selling authors, their books have sold over two million copies in more than two dozen languages, and include best-selling and Gold-medallion winner Saving Your Marriage Before It Starts.

Reviews - What do customers think about Trading Places?

Good Book That's a Bit Scattered and Unfocused  Jul 23, 2008
The idea of Trading Places is great--to have empathy with your spouse in order to help your marriage. The book is filled with good examples and specific advice in typical Parrott fashion.

But the book is written in a scattered writing style, where unrelated stories are strung together and concepts are sometimes poorly defined. The authors take just about any story that that could come up with as an example of empathy, even though many of the stories are really examples of kindness or sympathy instead of empathy. So they could better define the theme of the book, find stronger examples of the points they are making and then write the book in a less short-attention-span style to make it flow better. It often comes across like they each divided up the chapters by theme, then each clipped articles or did a Web search on the theme and tied it all together. Namely, sometimes it is disjointed and choppy and doesn't flow as well as it should. The positive side of that is that you can read just a page or two at a time and don't need to read chapters as a whole in one sitting.

Another suggestion is that the book may have been better if it would have been applied to ALL relationships and not just spouses. The idea of empathy could work with children, adult parents, siblings, co-workers, strangers we encounter, etc. Their focus on spouses is fine but often the points they make could be better applied to a larger group of relationships.

So it's another good book from them but could use some good editing and maybe more time devoted to strengthening their points.
trading places: the best move you'll ever make in your marriage  Jun 18, 2008
Excellent. Empathy is a must and this book oozes with how to get it and keep it in your marriage.
Wonderful Book  Jun 4, 2008
I loved this book; the Parrots have taken a simple concept--empathy--and made it practical, helpful, and inspiring. It's refreshing to read a book with this much depth that also turns out to be a very enjoyable read. I laughed out loud several times, had my mind expanded with some fascinating research, and had my heart convicted. What more could you want in a book?
Definitely worth your time!  May 15, 2008
If you're looking to deepen and grow your relationship with your spouse (or anyone else for that matter), you'll be challenged, encouraged, and motivated by the authors of Trading Places. Truly seeing things from another's perspective isn't easy, but Drs. Les and Leslie Parrott have given me tools in this book that have opened my eyes to more clearly see and understand the person standing in front of me. Don't hesitate to make this purchase--it's worth every penny!
Trading Places  May 9, 2008
My husband and I both read "Trading Places" by Drs. Les & Leslie Parrott and we recommend it to every couple no matter what stage of marriage you are in. Frankly, even if you aren't married this is a great book. It's for anyone and everyone because we all need more empathy in this crazy busy world where it's easy to forget to consider someone else's perspective. Read it.
