9780091929275: For Better (For Worse): The science of a good marriage: Lessons from the Love Lab

We've all heard the statistic: 50% of marriages end in divorce. It's enough to make many couples give up when the going gets tough. But what if it weren't true? What if, in fact, it's not only possible

but often easier than you think to save a seemingly troubled relationship?

These are the questions leading New York Times blogger Tara Parker-Pope asked herself after her own divorce. An investigative journalist, she turned to some of the top biologists, neuroscientists and psychologists for the facts about marriage and divorce.

For Better (For Worse) offers page after page of astonishing, eye-opening good news. Discover:

- The science behind why some marriages work and others don't

- The biology behind why some spouses cheat and others remain faithful

- The best diagnostic tools created by cutting-edge psychologists to assess the probability of success

in getting married and staying married

Packed full of questionnaires to uncover your hidden feelings and tools to show how small adjustments can make a huge difference, this is the definitive guide to the most profound relationship of our lives.

Review:

"It is pure joy to read a book on so popular a subject as marriage that is not filled with pop-psych platitudes and prescriptive do's and don't's ... Tara Parker-Pope disabuses us of long-held myths and replaces them with facts that can help couples of any persuasion form stronger, steadier unions" (Jane E Brody The New York Times)

"... a gem of a book. Reading this book will absolutely improve your marriage" ( Louann Brizendine, MD, author of The Female Brain and The Male Brain)

"... a savvy, practical guide for side-steping the dead ends that all couples encounter along that zany, zig-zaggy path we travel from 'I do' to 'I can...and will'!" ( Harvey Karp, MD, author of The New York Times bestseller The Happiest Toddler on the Block)

Book Description:

A comprehensive and insightful guide that offers research-based, prescriptive suggestions on how to improve your marriage by leading New York Times blogger Tara Parker-Pope
