I been meaning to write a review for this book for a while, it has a bit of a laddish or sleazey suggesting cover art which is unfortunate because it really contains as much solid social relationship theory in a condensed format as I've seen.

The short book (it could easily fit in your back pocket like most of the bluffers guide series) breaks down into Introduction; Statistics about Relationships; The Life Cycle of a Relationship: Kerckhoff and Davis' Filter Theory, Thibaut and Kelly's Four-stage Model, Homans' Principleof Satiation, Murstein's Stimulus-Value-Role Theory, Sprecher's Self Disclosure; Maintaining a Relationship: Mindia and Baxter, Brown and Harris, Buunk and Hupka, Yip; Theories of Love: Freud, Maslow, Lee, Limerance, Hendrick and Hendrick, Byrne's Formula for Love, Sternberg's Triangular Theory of Love, Companionate and Passionate Love; Theories about Relationships: The Cave, Men Solve, Women Wallow, Men are Literal, Women are Emotional; Men are Mono, Women are Multi, Men Map, Women Picture, Men are Strong, Women are Loving; Freud on Relationships; Problems in Studying Relationships: Huston and Levinger, Berscheid, Social Representations; Starting a Relationship: E-mail flirting, Internet Dating, Lonely Hearts Columns, Speed Dating, Dark Dating, Silent Dating, Supermarket Check-Outs, Other Methods of Dating; Ending a Relationship: The causes of relationship breakdown, patterns of relationship breakdown, effects of relationship termination; Relationships around the world: Tibetan Polyandry, Matrilineal Societies, Milk Siblings, Closely Defined Relatioships, Keeping it in the Family, Arranged Marriages, Trobriand Pregnancies, Differences within the Western World, Extra-Marital Sex.
