Top Customer Reviews
Read this book and you will finally understand why your friends or partners require different language or action to internalise that you care, and will help you to curb behaviour that will be driving your partner potty, even though to you it is the 'right thing to do' or so small you can't believe they picked up on it.
Love Birds offers the personality of a chat with an informed friend, with the backing of scientific fact and Trevor's years of working with clients to improve their relationships. If you read any book this year on relationships, friendships, self-help or therapy... in fact any book at all that you want to be gripped to from front to back, make it Love Birds. I would give it six stars if I could.
Lovebirds explains clearly the key differences partners of either sex can have in their communication styles, how they see the world, how they feel connected and how they know they're loved. It can be easy to presume others are / should be like us in the way they do all of the above, and we feel frustrated when our efforts to show affection go unnoticed, or we when we feel unloved by our other half.
The book starts by asking you to complete two short tests to find out which bird type you and your partner fall under, and then gives descriptions of each type - it's incredible how spot-on these descriptions were for us- which allow you to understand yourselves and each other better. It then goes on to examine the different combinations of bird types, the positives to celebrate and the pitfalls to avoid, with helpful guidance of how this can be achieved - a perfect method for finding peace with each other rather than driving each other crazy!
The book is fun and entertaining and would be just as useful for parent / child relationships, or business colleagues, as it gives you an excellent insight into the minds of other people and how best to relate to others.
I feel certain that this book will have a hugely positive impact upon mine and countless other marriages and relationships and would highly recommend it!
We all get the idea that communication is a key element of a successful relationship but Love Birds will help you to understand how to communicate with another person in the most effective way possible. How for some the key to expression is touch, others words, or what they see and we tend to express our affection and love in the way we want it to be expressed to us, rather than recognising that our partner may prefer something different.
All those things that make no sense or annoy the hell out you will suddenly be a source of wonder, amusement and renewed love. He even includes bedroom tips, if you're partner is a song bird just make sure you check that you're not on speaker phone... :)
You can't go wrong with this book and you may be thinking this is a girlie kind of book but it's not, my husband has learnt so much from it too and we've spent many a moment laughing together at the accuracy of its descriptions. What I love most about this book, aside from the humour, is that its potentially life changing and yet simple and light hearted. The concepts within this book have just blown me away and I can't wait to give copies to my friends and family.
From owl dove.
