"We can have happier and more joy-filled relationships if we focus on what's right about them rather than what's wrong," writes M. J. Ryan in Attitudes of Gratitude in Love, the follow-up to her bestselling Attitudes of Gratitude. In her characteristically down-to-earth style, Ryan helps readers use the practice of gratitude to get back in touch with why they fell in love in the first place and deepen the love between partners, no matter how long they've been together. The book is divided into two sections -- the attitudes of gratitude that bring our personal lives more joy, peace, and love, and the simple behaviors we can begin to practice to change any relationship for the better, right this moment.

Daphne Rose Kingma is a psychotherapist who has counseled couples and individuals to a deeper understanding and improvement of their relationships for more than 25 years. She has appeared on national television shows including Oprah and Sally Jessy Raphael and is the best-selling author of many books including True Love, Finding True Love, and Loving Yourself. She lives in Santa Barbara, California.
Cofounder of Conari Press and coeditor of the "Random Acts of Kindness" series, Ryan returns with another little feel-good book. Radiating enough cheer to perk up Archie Bunker, this successor to the best-selling Attitudes of Gratitude spins positive angles on being grateful for the hard work that characterizes long-term relationships (e.g., "The more you're thankful, the more you'll receive"). Each section is simple if generic and features an epigraph purer than the text. Aimed primarily at married couples, it basically screams "gift book"; if similar material (e.g., Amy Dean's Night Light) spikes circulation at your public library, fine. Chicken Soup for the Soul? It's more like popcorn. Purchase as needed.
