After reading many books on self help psychology and emotional issues over the years with little result in terms of improvement, I only wish I had read this book years ago. It would have meant much less needless stress. This book is different from any other relationship book because it doesn't require work or special techniques. Just getting the understanding of what George Pransky is saying is enough to change everything. I read Michael Neill's Inside-Out Revolution shortly before reading this one, and the two together have made a huge, real day-to-day difference not just in my relationships but the whole way I experience my life. The only analogy I can think of is, it's like that Jim Carrey film, the Truman Show. You wake up to the nonsense and realise you've been looking in the wrong direction all your life. I can't recommend it highly enough.

Wonderfully perceptive and doable. Only one side of a relationship needs to be aware of this stuff, not both! That is the mind-blowing gate-opener for me. It isn't easy to take this on board, but it does work.

This is a brilliant, if controversial book that I learnt a lot fro, Based on the 3 Principles, there are some revolutionary concepts that Pransky shares which are a bot hard to swallow, but actually make great sense. I am indebted to George for raising these with me and enabling me to see through a number of the challenges we are faced with in our relationships. It can expand further than those you are emotionally attached to, but that is the prime goal. To improve relationships, even if you are only working on them from one side - a premise which shocked me.

Found that this worked like magic! The ideas sound crazy, but actually work. Although when he refers to change as "effortless" I was skeptical and so find that it does take effort.
One criticism- he claims all low mood comes from insecurity. I found that low mood mostly comes from being tired or hungry, in which case sleeping or eating do the trick, rather than waiting for the mood to pass, as he suggests. Im a bit surprised that he didn't realize this basic source of low mood.

I just want to thank the writer for writing such a wonderful book. Very revealing how couple dynamics go or any relationship for that matter. I much appreciate how the writer asks you to be more compassionate and present to others and at the same time he come across as compassionate to the reader. Great book and a must read.

Format: Paperback
"Relationship Handbook" by George Pransky is not a bad book. Pransky's approach to relationships is strongly informed by teachings of Sydney Banks, the founder of the Three Principles movement (see for example Missing Link, The). The main premise of the book is to overlook to the differences and disagreements in one's relationship and "to start enjoying each other". The book also recommends to avoid engaging in big relationship conversations when in a bad mood, and to disregard negative thoughts and feelings about one's partner and relationship dynamics.

This book's advice will certainly help a challenged couple better than going to a bog-standard marriage counsellor trained by Relate, who are *usually* well-intentioned yet clueless about happy relationships, and encourage couples to persevere in staying together despite their misery and to "work" on their relationship until they lose their will to live (see my review of The Relate Guide To Better Relationships: Practical Ways to Make Your Love Last From the Experts in Marriage Guidance (Relate Guides) for a full account). More and more progressive psychologists, therapists and relationship counsellors root their work in Innate Wisdom principles made popular by S. Banks, and, in this way, "Relationship Handbook" is a useful introduction to these principles in the context of love relationships.

However, in my opinion, Pransky's advice is oversimplified and limited, and there are a lot of areas where this book falls short. Here is my account of the main two shortcomings of this book:
