I picked up this book a long time ago when I happened to be at an airport in Mumbai. It happened to be one of the few English language books at the time, stacked on a bookshelf alongside other stuff like the Indian version of Cosmopolitan magazine, and the Kamasutra. I bought this book because it had an endearing picture of Alan and Barbara Pease in an embrace, smiling, with the former having a funny grin on his face. Of course, before I bought the book, I went through the words, to make sure it was a good buy because with most Indian books, the summary behind the book is never anything to go by.
I enjoyed reading this book, and there was a lot of inspiring advice that one could not take for granted. One of those ideas went something along the lines of women retreating into a shell because they needed 'to be listened to' and men wanting to 'fix things' and go right ahead and be themselves, the problem solvers. The pictures/illustrations used in the book are also nice, they make the point clear. And the text is not heavy, and makes for a light read, even though the book was quite large. Another remarkable idea I found in the book was on the page which had a picture of Pamela Anderson on it, and why she was the beauty ideal at least back in the day when the book was actually published.
I really recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn about Relationships, in an easy offhand manner. While many recommend Couples Therapy, I think this book has a lot of truth to it, that makes it a wonderful read, a classic worth adding to your collection.
