Relationships

Few things promise us greater happiness than our relationships - yet few things more reliably deliver misery and frustration. Our error is to suppose that we are born knowing how to love and that managing a relationship might therefore be intuitive and easy.

This book starts from a different premise: that love is a skill to be learnt, rather than just an emotion to be felt. It calmly and charmingly takes us around the key issues of relationships, from arguments to sex, forgiveness to communication, making sure that success in love need never again be just a matter of luck.

Chapters include:

  • Post-Romanticism
  • The Problems of Closeness
  • Partner-As-Child
  • Politeness and Secrets
  • Explaining One's Madness
  • Crushes
  • Sexual Non-Liberation
