Book Review : Wired for Love

“Wired for Love: How Understanding Your Partner’s Brain and Attachment Style Can Help You Defuse Conflict and Build a Secure Relationship” is written by Stan Tatkin. I have listened to the audio book. It is book on couple relationship, and how partners could help each other to make the relationship better. The author refers to some terms like “couple bubble” for the understanding between partners. He also uses the terms like “anchor”,”island” and “wave” for personality of the partners in relationship. “Anchors” have most secure relation and goal of the other two personality types has to become anchor in the relationship. The author illustrates a number of scenarios of couples interacting with these 3 personality types and provides correction advice to better the situation. The author states that personality types are based on situations in childhood.

Rating: 3/5. The illustrated situations seem too dramatic sometimes. Its a good book to read and less good book to follow the advice.
