I don’t usually read self-help books, however, I have to say that I found Julia Black’s book extremely interesting (I read it in less than one day).
The subject might have been the subject of other self-help books but this author managed to keep my interest alive. She touches upon a matter that is extremely important nowadays: how to keep your marriage, your marital love relationship alive and not let it succumb.
As indeed, at present, most couples find it difficult to keep the spark alive while tending to usual problems like demanding jobs, housework, children and financial bills, this book brings not only an explanation about what happens in most of the couples but also brings solutions.
The solutions that Julia Blacks details in her book do not require too much time or too much expense which would render the subject moot for most of the couples. She backs her study and her advice with other women’s experiences which makes her analysis and advise more credible.
The style is not pretentious and the author manages to present problems and solutions using humor, which makes the discourse far from dreading and boring.
I found interesting the fact that Ms. Julia Black also added a humorous appendix at the end of the book (which clashed remarkably with the sex advice she presented in her narrative) and also a list of other works that might help the reader to grasp the concepts presented better.
Therefore, I consider that this self-help book is detailed without being dreary; it is upbeat and quite informative. I would recommend the book to anyone questioning where their marital relationship is going and what they can do to fix things.
***I was assigned this title in a book group and was asked to give an honest review.
