This lengthy collection of what science tells us about happy and unhappy couples is full of psychological abstractions, but narrator J. Charles delivers it with fresh vocal energy that makes it sound like kitchen-table conversation. With appealing jauntiness and spontaneity, he gives the analytical author’s thinking irresistible personality that keeps listeners engaged. Dr. Gottman writes with clarity and charm. His fascinating research shows how emotional attunement and trust are the glue that helps couples work through conflicts and not overreact to them. Though it’s more science than inspiration or instruction, it’s eloquent confirmation that only trust can allow couples to feel safe and secure, to permit vulnerability, and to create a space where attraction can ripen into the mutual responsibility of building a life together.
