The LiveReal Guide to Relationships Books

The World's Most Authoritative Guide to What Folks Have Said About Getting Relationships Right. Maybe.

"Everywhere I go I'm asked if I think the university stifles writers.
My opinion is that they don't stifle enough of them."
- Flannery O'Connor

This is what we're up against: there's probably a really good insight or two somewhere in here.
Maybe.

Note to our dear readers:
Do you have suggestions? Requests? Suggestions for this section?
This section is evolving on an ongoing basis. It's also impossible for us to completely keep up with the tsunami of new books, authors, and approaches, although we're doing the best we can at this point. That said, please send all thoughts, suggestions, glowing praise and constructive criticism to us here.




A few more words about what we're doing here...

Relationships are typically one of the most crucially important areas of our lives. But strangely enough, it is also an area that we are typically taught almost nothing about, aside from what we pick up, haphazardly, from our friends, family, and television.

And let's be honest: there's a pretty decent chance that they don't know any more than we do.

That said, many thinkers have taken it upon themselves up to teach what they have figured out, for better or worse, on the trials and tribulations of relationships. Over the years they have released a flood of books, tapes, seminars and sites, which inform and misinform us, enlighten and confuse us, delight and depress us. Nowadays, we have more self-help books than ever before . . . yet are we in the modern dating / marriage scene really better off? It's debatable.

So...if we're interested in actually going about this most important area of our lives consciously, how do we sort out the wheat from the chaff? The diamonds from the coal? The pearls from the oysters?

Your daring LiveReal Agents have been spending their time sorting through the avalanche of information searching out the best of the best so you don't have to.

This section is intended to save you tons of time, money, and energy
by connecting you with what you most need to know, as quickly and efficiently as possible.
