Listen, Learn, Love: How to Dramatically Improve Your Relationships in 30 Days or Less!

Susie Albert Miller. Dunham Books (dunhamgroupinc.com), $14.99 trade paper (128p) ISBN 978-1-939447-74-6
Therapist and coach Miller offers three skills she believes will transform any relationship in 30 days: listen; learn well; and love. Miller lays the groundwork well, arguing that most people receive little to no education on how to create strong and lasting relationships. Using practical examples and conversational prose, she guides readers through each of these comprehensive practices, explaining what they are (and are not). She provides bullet points to help readers imagine the impact using each skill would have on their relationships, and supplies questions to help with practice and application. While Miller acknowledges that this book is a "first step" and offers only a "broad brushstroke of these skills," the brevity of the work makes it feel lightweight. Though there are some gems scattered throughout, they're interspersed with dated movie references, as well as shopworn quotes and examples from influential thinkers in the field. The lack of a fresh angle on the mechanics of relationships makes Miller's work a fair airplane read but little else. (May)
