Keeping Score: A Guide to Love and Relationships by Marc Brackett

PhotobucketIt's a relationship book even a man will read.

Keeping Score provides a relationship evaluation quiz followed by a common sense guide for relationship improvement, all with a humorous twist. You can determine if your relationship has the qualities it takes for a successful marriage and lasting love affair.

If you're single- read this book to see how well your potential life partner measures up. If you're married- read this book to reduce conflict and increase your happiness.

Take control and shape your union into a relationship that will stand the trials of life and go the distance.

This is not the usual kind of book for me. I tend to stay away from these relationship-improvement books, but this one caught my attention and I had to give it a try.

There were many good things about it. I enjoyed the author’s honesty in dealing with both sexes, from the personal test to the scores and their meanings. I also really liked the idea of being able to interact with other readers across the web with It makes the book interactive, which, when dealing with this subject matter, is the ideal to be able to really comprehend it. But there was one thing that did bother me. Well, “bother” is probably too strong a word. One of these is the really black and white choices the reader is given for the tests questions. There’s no room whatsoever for gray areas. I know that there’s no way to accommodate every answer, but I would have liked to see a bit more options.

All in all, if you enjoy these kinds of personality/relationship books, I would recommend this one. There are many interesting ideas spread throughout its pages that will make you really think about your and your partner’s actions.
