From the Publisher:

"A divorce prevention society should be formed to place a copy of this book in every hotel room in Niagara Falls-scratch that, every hotel room in this country. Every wife or husband struggling to say married, especially happily married, should read this book." --Maggie Gallagher, coauthor, The Case for Marriage: Why Married People are Happier, Healthier, & Better Off Financially

"I love this book! If you want to be happily, successfully married, buy it, master it, and it's all you'll every need. While you're at it, buy a copy for every couple you love. You won't need one for your kids, they'll learn by watching you." -- Diane Sollee, founder and director, Coalition for Marriage, Family and Couples Education

"...recommended for public and social work libraries owing to the tried-and-true methodology it explains." (Library Journal, November 15, 2001)

"Just about everyone can improve their marriage.... They can learn skills to help them handle negative emotions in marriage. It's the discord that hurts kids," (USA Today, December 13, 2001)

From the Inside Flap:

You've seen the authors on Oprah, 20/20, 48 Hours, BBC, and CNN and read about their work with couples in Reader's Digest, The New York Times, USA Today, The Washington Times, The Wall Street Journal, The London Times, Redbook, Psychology Today, Modern Bride, Ladies Home Journal, Woman's Day, New Woman, and McCall's.
Now, read Fighting for Your Marriage and see what all the excitement is about.
