I cannot recommend this book highly enough. I read it whilst in Paris for a weekend and ignored most of the beautiful sights because I was so engrossed in Trevor's witty and insightful words. You do not have to be in the field of therapy to enjoy this book, though if you are you will quickly find it becomes your bible for helping clients develop their relationships. If you are reading it simply for pleasure, or with an interest in developing your own relationships, you will find yourself stating "Oh my god, that is so like me" or, "Wow, it's not just that you don't care" on numerous occasions. Very much a book your fellow commuters on the train will lean over your shoulder to read because they want to know what has got you so amused and engrossed that you missed your stop.

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.

If you're in a relationship, you need this book!

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!

I completely embarrassed myself by bursting into fits of giggles reading this book on the tube. Even after I put the book away I was still giggling away as I changed trains. Super embarrassing but this book will reveal things about you and your partner that will make such a difference to how you interact with each other.

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.

For all of you out there that have found relationships hard this is a genius read. A great book to help navigate a person through both self awareness and awareness of others. Also a great application and extension of MBTI. Written in a very down to earth and accessible style it is jam packed full of "aha" moments. I like the balance of the book as it is more educational that vanilla self-help.

After hearing an interview with the author on The Steve Wright Show (Radio Two) I was intrigued and read the book straight away. It was an interesting new look at personality types and how they get on together. Very similar to Myers Briggs, but the personalities are labelled after types of birds. Firstly whether you are a ground bird (concerned with detail and planning) or a sky bird (concerned with ideas and vision) and then whether you are a thinking, feeling, seeing or hearing type (once again all named after a bird) so, eight types altogether. I must admit I got very confused as I found I had traits from all the types and when I thought I was getting closer to finding my strongest type, an aspect very NOT me would follow. Also my OH didn't fit any category as the descriptions are all about extremes and he isn't extreme anything so am now none the wiser but I did enjoy the read as I'm fascinated by all personality analysis books.
