Don't Sweat the Small Stuff in Love: Simple Ways to Nurture and Strengthen Your Relationships While Avoiding the Habits That Break Down Your Loving Connection Reviews

    This book is really How to Chill, How to Rule, and How to be Cool with Your Boyfriend, Roomies, Family, Friends and Coworkers. Or: How to Let Love, Not Worry Rule Your World. I wish I had read this when I was 12 so I could have avoided a whole lotta dick moves in my life I learned not to pull by hurting previous relationships. Some of these tips seem commonsense, but aren't second nature like "Don't come home frazzled." This book is Step 2 in my plan to be more peaceful. Expect to see more self-helpy stuff this-a-way.

    This book in a word: fluff. There are 100 short chapters, each on an idea to improve your marriage. But there are actually about 5 ideas, rephrased 20 times each. Each chapter follows the same format: introduction of the idea, a story illustrating the idea, the author telling how he and his wife live the concept perfectly, and a disclaimer. For example, in the chapter on Allowing Your Partner Some Eccentricities they say, "Now, we're not suggesting that you put up with any truly neurotic behavior." Really? That's good, because if that weren't there, I would probably allow my spouse to abuse me emotionally and physically and then I would have sued the authors for telling me to do it. Anyway, I received this book as a gift and it looked like a really short read (it only took me 7 months) so I started it and then for some reason I made myself finish it. I gave it two stars because just reading about being nice to my spouse made me a little nicer, I think :)

    While this book was definitely not written for folks like me - i.e. queer with a non-traditional approach to relationships - I thought there were some helpful points made about why and how to let the small stuff go.

    'Bout half way through. So far so good. Helps me remember to chill out when I get frazzled. Also helps me remember that I cant control anyone but myself, and trying to is just a waste of my time and energy that could be spent doing something that makes me feel happy and peaceful.

    Amazing book. It is a must read for all couples and if you are in a work and home relationship together it is a definite must read. Read it together like my husband and I did and you will reap the rewards even more. We love this entire series and intend to read them all. This is our second book in the series.

    النجمتان المفقودتان واحدة للترجمة السيئة والكارثية والثانية للأخطاء المطبعية الفادحة..اقتباسات من الكتاب:من الغريب أننا في الغالب نبدو أننا مستعدون أكثر للتعامل مع الأحداث الكبرى في الحياة أكثر من استعدادنا للتعامل مع الأحداث الصغرى، ولأننا نعرف أنه لا مفر أمامنا من التغلب على هذه الأحداث فإن هذا يدفعنا إلى إخراج ما لدى كل منا من طاقة./اعرف قدر ذاتك، ليس هناك إنسان في العالم يشبهك تماما، وما من أحد يمكنه أن يحل مكانك/

    2 out of 5 stars! ⭐️ I bought it on a wimp and I did not like it. I am just a sucker for beautiful covers so the book did not stay in my bookshelf, I gave it away... 🤭👌🏻👎🏻

    This book had pretty good advice, but it really assumes that two people are meant to be together. Some relationships just aren't meant to be. The advice given really will only work if you're a willing participant in a relationship and want it to work out. Maybe that's a given, but not all relationships are created equal. My relationship could benefit from some of the knowledge dished out from this book because it's a healthy, working relationship with its share of ups and downs. I'm glad I read it, in any case.

    I think that this is a must read for any couple, especially at the beginning stages of a relationship. It gives sound, helpful and practical advice which if put into practice can reduce arguments. It makes you take a look at yourself and helps you to understand your partner better.It is a book that should be read again and by both partners lest you lose your way again later down the line or change partners.

    Buku ini memuat kiat yang cukup praktis dan menarik dalam hubungan suami istri.....Bisa jadi bahan bacaan pas dibutuhkan! Hanya saja kiat tersebut kelihatannya terlalu dipaksakan memenuhi angka 100, sehingga setelah membaca 50 persen dari kiat tersebut, terasa jelas cerita dan nasihat yang dianjurkan diberikan lagi berulang......

    Great book with principles and actions you can begin applying to your relationship IMMEDIATELY. The underlying themes of the book for me were 1. (obviously) don't sweat the small stuff and 2. stop and think before you speak or take action. These 2 guiding principles elimate so many issues. I recommend this to anyone in a relationship or even single people to apply to their next relationship.

    Quick read! Truly wonderful seeing a couple who can interact with such an easy communication style and be able to convey easy teachings of what truly matters with your mate and what does not. This book would be great for a couple to trade off each evening before bedtime. Tiny chapters and really makes you appreciate the differences in someone else.

    This book isn't rocket science. BUT the advice is sound. There are times I need to be reminded of the little things that I forget about how to treat other people- particularly my husband- when I'm stressed or tired. I keep it handy and when I need a pick me up, I can find a chapter that brings me back to what's important- and reminds me of basic relationship skills I can neglect at times.

    Self improvement book meant. I feel it is better than 1st book, "don't sweat the small stuff." There is significant overlap between the two, but more applicable to you and others, whereas "don't sweat the small stuff" is more directed inward only. This one applies to more than just love relationships, good for friends and family.

    There's a chapter on PMS that basically says women are irrational during that whole period, so you'd best ignore them if they're upset. EXCUSE ME?PMS is a cultural phenomenon practically equivalent to the notorious 1800s hysteria in terms of symptoms - of which there are over 130!!Sexism anyone?

    Solid advice and insights. My husband and I read this book by reading a section a day and it had a positive effect on our relationship. Was also an impetus for some good conversations. Drawback: repeatative phrases.

    Loved this book it points out things that you never really noticed affected you or your relationship. Especially if you dont have a history to learn from. Loved it loved it loved it. And yes it often reiterates the points but i think each point supports another thats why.

    Nothing wrong with the book, and the advice has a lot of resemblance to CBT--essentially you are what you think. It's a super quick read, so picking up a few pointers is painless enough. But I don't imagine many people will be surprised by anything in here.

    Great little book of advice. I kept it by my night stand for awhile and read a little bit each night. I'm a strong believer that you get out of any relationship what you put into it and a little nurturing of the loving connection can go a long way ;)

    Great book. Easy to read. Don't have to read from front to back but can jump around to what interests you. Full of short stories and anecdotes that help you open up to a different, less stressful way of thinking about things, relationships and life. Recommend to anyone.

    Eh. Like the other "sweat" books, it offers the same advice in different ways throughout the book. It does have some good suggestions, however. 100 'different' ideas would be good instead of saying the same thing several different ways.

    It helped me out a lot even if my boyfriend at the time learned nothing.

    It's typical, be positive, act like it doesn't annoy you advice, that really isn't realistic or insightful.
