“Love that Works is a practical and wisdom-filled handbook on creating just what the title offers. No matter the gender, orientation, and the reader’s form of relationship, the book goes to the heart of the core issues that drive all kinds of relationships apart and presents powerful tools that anyone can use to build stronger connections with their partners and themselves. Jim’s book draws on the last century of relationship research and clinical practice as well as plain-speak to inspire partners to become better partners… I am planning on using these worksheets regularly in my clinical practice and I just might use them to do some of my own personal clean-up work in my own relationship!”
