Library Journal Review

Initially, the reader of this book is asked to complete a confusing 55-item test to identify her Infidelity Quotient. For example, two negative points are awarded for being a virgin at marriage. The test is followed by eight conflict situations that the authors believe are the most common, each of which is molded to fit a single analysis formula. The couples in these scenarios use unnecessarily crude language at times. The final section advises the reader too briefly how to negotiate a better marriage. Oddly, although this is a book about making marriages work, it is written for and to women. Since it takes both parties to negotiate a change in a relationship, the text appears unnecessarily to thrust the burden of making the marriage work on the wife.John M.
