    " This book is about relationships between couples, friends, sieblings, work mates, and it is fostering understanding of emotions in yourself and others in an easy to understand way. I wish I had read this book many years ago. I will listen to it over again. To listen to John Gottman voice explaining his findings in this non-judgemental way is actually a feel-good experience that nurtures hope. Very interesting to hear about the different responses to bids, and about the emotional command centres. "

    " This book changed me. The author breaks down communication between ALL people to a system of "bids". I realized I had been unknowing and habitually "turning away" from the people in my life, subconsciously ruining my relationships. Directly after reading this book I stopped, and my relationships have been flourishing. Oh, and the command system stuff helps a lot in understanding people's motivations. But the "bid" stuff is REALLY amazing and on point. Also, its very simple and easy to understand. No nonsense fluff in this book. "

    " Certainly a lot of research went into the writing and content of this book. Very good, sound advise to inspire anyone looking to improve their relationship with another. Only a 4 star rating, because at times it hard to make all that research interesting, but much appreciated and thank you for doing it Gottman! "
