Publisher's Summary

From the New York Times best-selling author of Unfu*k Yourself comes tough love that explains what makes relationships work: you taking responsibility to fix yourself.

“Love is patient, love is blind....” Until it’s not. Then what?

No matter how much advice we get or how much work we do on our “stuff”, nothing ever seems to make the difference. The truth of it is, you’re woefully ill-equipped for one of the most life-defining things you will ever take on—being in a committed relationship.

Whether you’re currently in one, want to be in one, half in-half out, getting over one, married, single, separated, divorced, or just overwhelmed with the whole thing, let’s cut through the morass of relationship schtick and put you back in charge. No flowery BS, no woo-woo strategies, systems, or techniques, just real talk, for real people who want a real relationship in their life that actually works.

A candid kick in the a$$ about your relationships

Well, I'll be listening to this book multiple times. I've read (or listened to) all of Gary's books and this one is just as amazing as the others. I love his no-nonsense approach and calling-out that we do not have the ability to change others, only to change ourselves.

May I also recommend his podcast and calendar to help you remain mindful as you try to absorb the message and do the work.

I wish for all of you...more love, less arguing.

Wow wake up people yes you!

This book is spot on it is straight up and asking you to look at what it is that you’re committed to having in your life and if you’re willing to have your actions line up to it and that you are responsible for everything that you do and then acceptance is accepting someone for who they are and for who they’re not. Every time you get upset you’re not even present this book was like taking a three day course. Bravo GB

Audible

The audible version was so amazing. I had to order the hardcover version so that I could highlight all the parts that Gary smacked me in the face and look at it on a daily. Such an eye-opener and not your ordinary self-help book on relationships. It is raw, real, and hurts at times. This book came at the perfect time in my life, and I recommend it to anyone struggling a little or a lot in a relationship.


Thank you Gary for creating this book 🙌

Worth the Listen

I have read or listened to all of GJBs books. This one hit the nail on the head when it comes to dealing with a particular relationship or relationships, but the points made were similar to the advice in all of his other books. You can change yourself and not others. Live by your values. I found it to be a very good reminder as to how I SHOULD behave, but found it lacking in terms of providing do-it-now strategies. I think this would be 5 stars if it had an accompanying workbook to help someone identify his/her values and tricks/tips to apply them in another way other than using sheer willpower (but perhaps that is the only way). This book did help me see the ways I am holding onto resentment/anger but I'd like solid strategies to let it go and move on. My willpower just isn't always enough. This said, I will be keeping this in my library to listen to again and again.

If you lack thick skin and accountability, avoid this book

Gary’s performance is excellent for this audio book. He is far from monotone and you can feel the emotion connected to what is being read.

This is a brutal honest look at yourself inside a relationship and what you can control. He describes various ways how we contribute toward every relationship in our life. I think combining this book with extreme ownership is an excellent combination toward taking back control of your life.

Not much there

There’s simply not much in this book. If you are a semi-self reflective person then skip this one and the author’s self promotion. If you are not at all self-reflective, then you may find some basic nuggets of wisdom.

assumes a bit to much

I like his books, but he assumes he knows all about relationships and assumes we are all the same. In addition, using the F-word so much is a bit too much. Again, I love his other books; this one falls short. Keep writing and I, of course, will listen to your other books.

finally what I was looking for

After listening to about 30 other books, some with good stuff, this is the one hit me.

Amazing

I loved this book especially after coming out of such a dysfunctional relationship, where we were so good for each other but loving each other in the wrong ways. After listening to this book I definitely felt like I was being personally attacked for most of it and definitely took a lot away from this book! Whenever I start to lose sight of what I’ve learned, I will re-listen again!
