Mars & Venus Collide

4
Real Moments
A great book for most women. I haven't met a man who has read it. Nonetheless it is worth looking into if you wish to really understand a woman's perspective.
5
DeAngelis
This is a great guide and I have had lots of fun reading this book. It feels great to be understood and that you are not alone in thinking so! Men, must read!!!

5 languages
Gary Chapman recognizes how each of us differ in looking for signs of loving connections from our partners. Most times, it is not that we don't love one another. It is that our language of speaking love differs from one another. Learn all the 5 love languages so that you will be able to recognize your spouse or girl friend's love (sign) language!
See the full review, "It's All About Love & a new language to speak it".

Love As A Way of Life
7 characteristics of authentic love is explored in this book and Gary Chapman shows us how to apply them and nurture our relationships. Essential qualities are: 1) Kindness 2) Patience 3) Forgiveness 4) Courtesy 5) Humility 6) Generosity & 7) Honesty. Read the book not simply for V Day but also as a guide to everyday's life and love.

Don't Sweat the Small Stuff--and it's all small
The author of the book had passed on and he left us this legacy. Richard Carlson outlines the small stuff in life and help us get over our pet peeves. It's an entertaining and revealing read. The chapters are short and it's a great book to bring along the way to work, especially if you are travelling in subways.

This is a novel but it's packed with a lot of Richard Bach and one of the greatest romance I've ever read. This one is a true love story. Must read & highly recommended.

What Dreams May Come
I saw the movie first and then read the book. Some prefers the book but I do believe I like the movie best. What Dreams May Come entails not just love story but also parent-child relationship and teacher-student relationship (or mentor if you please). It is one of the greatest movies if not the greatest one I've seen!

Whoa, Sharrie!  Do we have a relationship expert in the house or what?! :P  I may have studied human sexuality in college, but I don't think I read this many books on the topic (I read mostly textbooks).  I've been meaning to check out the series that #2 and #3 come from, so I'll give that a look-see.  Thanks for this list! :)

#2 & #3 are great to start with. I've read #2 countless time but to really apply it in your life, it takes more than 3 readings. I think we are wired so differently that we tend to react instinctively that many a time we didn't realise how that affected our behaviors & others (esp. the opposite sex)! Well, I did major in Psychology in college and I've read more books than I can remember (including those by the Dalai Lama) if they are of interest to you. Self help is my forte, lol...
