Overview

Every troubled couple has had it up to here with self-help books explaining how to make relationships work. This one addresses why they don’t-and frankly, why some of them never will. In this unique and illuminating he said/she said guide to avoiding love-gone-wrong, 21 real-life couples spill it to widely-read advice columnist Sherry Amatenstein. What better way to make a relationship last than to learn from the ones that didn’t?

Praise

“Those who forget history are doomed to repeat it. Ivillage.com’s dating expert builds on this concept in her latest book, making an open-minded assessment of both sides of 21 romantic wrecks. Each chapter discusses a relationship, giving its year of “birth” and “death” and a title that describes the heart of the problem (e.g., “Don’t Assume the Two of You Are on the Same Romantic Wavelength” or “Don’t Mistake Raging Lust for True Love”). Amatenstein presents three sides of each breakup: his, hers and the truth. While she does not address relationships with serious physical and/or emotional abuse, her casual approach is perfect for those seeking lighthearted but useful tips on how to stay with a mate.”
—Publishers Weekly
 
“Entertains while giving us valuable insights into why relationships fail.”
—Laura Day
 
“Humorous, practical and spiritual advice.”
—Shmuley Boteach, author of Kosher Sex
