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.
Let's start with the Barnum effect - sometimes you read these types of things and wonder if it's just like a horoscope. You could read any of them and they would fit your situation.
It very quickly becomes clear that this isn't true. The book is full of specific, uncannily accurate descriptions of how you often behave with your partner or indeed how you behave personally when single. What was really refreshing to see - was that being gay - it just as equally applied to my partner as it would to any hetrosexual couple and the book has been written in extremely inclusive language.
It's tempting to wonder at times if Trevor Silvester has a crystal ball - but he's very honest and open about the methodology. No pyschic-ness involved. It's a mixture of Myers-Briggs personality typing and NLP Representation Types through a deceptively simple quiz resulting in him being able to accurately describe almost every disagreement I've had with my partner since we moved in together!
It's all very logical and makes complete sense - which to an Owl i've discovered is pretty important.
I gave the book to my partner who dismissed it at first (he's a kingfisher - of course he would!) until he realised how insightful and spot on it consistently is. He's since described it as the quickest therapy that's insightful in history!
As if this wasn't enough, also in my capacity as a business consultant, the personality types quickly become clear within work too - and can be a helpful reflective piece into looking how to deal with groups of people in conflict and bring them to resolution.
In summary, undoubtedly one of the most refreshing reads on relationships out there.
