Those facts were more positive and provocative than she d ever expected, and "For Better" offers page after page of astonishing, eye-opening good news. Parker-Pope presents the science behind why some marriages work and others don t; the biology behind why some spouses cheat and others remain faithful; the best diagnostic tools created by the most cutting-edge psychologists to assess the probability of success in getting married, staying married, or remarrying. There are questionnaires to uncover potentially damaging hidden attitudes toward spouses. There are tools to show the impact of routine, fresh activity and how small adjustments can make a huge difference. Tara Parker-Pope s genius is for exploring the science behind the big issues that affect our lives every day and translating that science into advice that we can use every day.
"For Better" is the definitive guide to the most profound relationship of our lives.
