DIY Sex & Relationship Therapy is an excellent book. Rather than those standard relationship books that you just have to slog through, this involves and engages you throughout. Games & role-plays, adventurous suggestions and much more make this a fun and entertaining process, just as a relationship should be.
I would highly recommend this to anyone who is too embarrassed or doesn't have the funds to have a personal therapist, but also to anyone who wants to learn and understand more about their own relationship, even if it is already strong. And it is always an excellent tool to go back to if you find yourselves slipping back into old habits.

I cannot rate this book highly enough, so five stars will have to do.
My partner and I read the book together and we found it very easy to understand, as it has none of the fancy jargon that you find in other 'self help' manuals.
We particularly like the exercise cards and are still enjoying working our way through them. I can see us going back to these time and again to keep our relationship fresh and exciting.
Thank you Dr Lori, you have given us the push we needed, without the expense of counselling sessions.

Hats off to this book. Even if you are not in a relationship, you would benefit from reading this. It is a really straight forward, easy to read book and not full of jargon.
As said in one of the other reviews, not everyone can afford a therapist and with this, you wouldn't need one. Take each exercise and use it to the full - if you want it to work, following this, it will.

Where do you find two PhD psychologists with the ability to be so down-to-earth on sex and relationships and who are able to set out their advice so articulately? This book arrived by mail around lunchtime and I didn't put it down until I'd reached the last page. Might absorbed more when I read it again but I don't need the second reading to appreciate the contents and how well presented they are.
Don't wait until your sex life needs a lift and certainly don't wait until your relationship is showing cracks. Get this book now and each time your partner has a headache, or an argument breaks out, or you just want to find something you haven't tried before, take it off the shelf and quietly start to consult Dr Lori and Dr June.
When (not if) enough people have read this book, Jeremy Kyle will be out of business. "Why don't you put something on the end of it". Huh, that's just the start! Can't wait for the sequel, the TV series and the dvd.
