Calling on their own experience of what works in relationships and what doesn't, the Vaughans ( Beyond Affairs ) offer straightforward and convincing counsel to couples who hope to sustain rewarding relationships. James Vaughan's love affairs, rather than destroying their marriage, spurred him and his wife to work out their problems and learn to trust each other again. The key to happy relationships, they contend, has nothing to do with sexual gymnastics, game-playing or romantic gimmicks, but rather is based on a mutual commitment to honesty and fairness. In sections based on such areas as communication, day-to-day issues and negative emotions, the Vaughans discuss sex, money, friends, child-raising and conflict in brief paragraphs. Each page has a sentence-long summary, e.g., ``Renew your trust by continually disclosing yourself.'' A basic, clearly written and expertly organized manual. (Nov.)
