This book explores the most common problems in marriage: the power of negative thinking; how the initial idealizing of a partner can lead to disillusionment; how important life-changing decisions are never discussed; how anger and hostility develop from miscommunication. These problems are approached through "cognitive therapy", in which thinking through and reasoning are used to counteract the poor communication which so often erodes relationships. Dr Beck shows how effective communication can restore and strengthen the ties and bonds between couples.
