I've read a lot of books on relationships and communication. And I've read other books by Drs. Les and Leslie Parrott (I've also heard them in a live seminar). But I've got to admit that Love Talk blew me away. My wife and I read it together and did the men's and women's workbooks that go with it. Amazing! Almost immediately we began to notice a difference in our conversations. And best of all, as the book points out, this doesn't require that either one of us change. The book shows you, in easy to understand language, how each person is "hard-wired" differently for a conversation. Once you crack the code of your partner's hard-wiring (and your partner does the same for you), you begin to spin out of potential conflict very quickly. You begin to feel safe in your conversations. I've been looking for a book like this for a long time. And if you want a fresh and practical way to take your conversations to a deeper level, you'll be very glad you read Love Talk. By the way, it comes with a killer online assessment, The Love Talk Indicator. The only down side is that if you want your partner to also take the assessment, it will cost you another $14.95 at the Parrott's website. But in my opinion, it's well worth it.
