I've never been one for tackling my issues, I'm more of a 'let's just see how it turns out' kind of girl. Until now! A friend of mine, obviously sensing my tendencies towards relationship procrastination, thrust this wonderous blue book into my hand and promised me I would love it. Well she was right (so right that I've been compelled to post my first ever review). I've never not read a book cover to cover before, so reading sections of this was strange at first, but dipping in when I need to is like going back to an old friend. Great stories, easy to understand, a fab online community and for someone who tends to stuff things in the back of her head to deal with 'later', it's pretty good at spurring you into action. All in all, I'd say my friend did me a favour!!

Just after I read this book (or the majority of it, you don't have to read it all to get the benefits!) one of my best friends finally admitted she wasn't happy in her relationship with her boyfriend of 2 years (they were always falling out). I went straight to the book. We worked through the Graceful Exit chapter together, and it helped her made the decision to leave him. It sounds like a sad story, but using all the tips from this book the break up was very smooth, unpleasant yes, but they both got a lot from it and are starting to come out the other side as stronger people - even in a matter of weeks!

This isn't the only useful chapter, it has really helped me take control of some tricky relationships I had at work and spot when I'm getting into psychological games. Thanks Mind Gym for a brilliant book - I need to buy it for a few more people I know!

I found the two previous Mind Gym books, Wake Your Mind Up and Give Me Time immensely interesting and informative, but the psychological insights in Relationships beats them both .
Full of useful advice and understanding of the common and frequent difficulties with relationships at work, plus the helpful deep comprehension and knowledge of domestic emotional problems, Relationships is absolutely first-class: because of its large subject coverage I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone who has contact with people, (all of us?) whatever the context.

Dipping into this excellent book will tell you much more about yourself, and others, than you imagined.

The first 2 Mind Gym books have been part of my bookshelf for quite some time so I eagerly anticipated the next in the series - it was well worth the wait. It offers a refreshing approach to everyday occurences that we know so well, but may have run out of ideas on how to cope with them. I thoroughly enjoyed dipping in and out of the different exercises and putting them into practice on my friends, family and colleagues. And guess what? IT WORKS.

I am a big fan of first two best sellers from the Mind Gym. Both are useful and, as a consultant, I have successfully recommended them to clients who needed quick, practical advice. Their insights and advice have helped me and my clients deal with plenty of challenges, from making more time for myself at home, to being more influential at work. Based on that, I have been recommending this book for the last 3 months. I have never done this with a book I hadn't read before but I am glad I did as this book is just as useful and entertaining as its predecessors. In fact, I think it's their best yet.
It's full of fascinating insights from positive psychology (the useful side of psychological research) and offers practical tips, tools and techniques to help someone improve just about any relationship. This book is a must have.
The breadth of content covered is astounding and their advice is just as relevant for relationships at work as those at home. There are tips for rebuilding broken bonds, dealing with office politics and overcoming shyness, techniques for turning arguments around and building trust, and even a chapter on how to be charming. Pretty much whatever your problem, this book has answers that can help you make progress.
I particularly liked the chapters on dealing with tricky people and breaking patterns of conflict [something I have seen a marked increase of since the start of the recession. In my working life I've encountered my fair share of tricky people, but was often a little lost when it came to tackling the worst offenders.
Here, the Mindgym show their trademark blend of terrific scientific insight and colourful writing style to give you clearly identifiable characters such as "Betty the Control Freak" and "Oscar the Charmer".

Having been an avid reader of the first 2 The Mind Gym books, the new book on relationships certainly doesn't disappoint. The book is practical and engaging and offers a great insight into relationships across the board. It has already helped me to understand and improve one very special relationship. I thoroughly recommend this book to everyone

This is a FANTASTIC read! It's incredibly accessible - well written, easy to read and packed with excellent information and practical advice. I particularly liked the chapter called 'Fight Club' - a really helpful chapter on conflict, its various causes and solutions.
Highly recommended.
