About the book

The Smart Couple Qoute Book: Radically Simple Ways to avoid Pointless Fights, have better sex, and build an Indestructible Partnership by Jayson Gaddis is a 142-page non-fiction book. This book was published in the year 2017 by TCK Publishing. Jayson Gaddis is the founder of the Relationship School, host for Smart Couple Podcast and is a relationship student and teacher, so he is qualified to write this book and he knows what he is talking about since he lived through it, too. He learned about this the hard way and wants to help the reader.

The Purpose of this Book

The purpose of this book "is to give you an upgrade in how you see, experience, and live inside of an adult, long-term relationship" (The Smart Couple Quote Book by Jayson Gaddis, 2017, 1). The author will challenge us to look deeper in our heart and mind so we can act and think differently. This is not your typical book that gives you a step-by-step way to a better marriage but a book on the trials, hardships and joys of marriage. The author promises to give us the reader ways to have a better relationship in our marriage.


Summary of the Book

With many ways to approach this topic, I think the author did a great job in writing this book that included his experiences and research. While reading this book, the author gives little tidbits on his relationships with his family. For example, when his son acts out, he takes him and his son outside to look for animals to reconnect. The author delivers on his promise by adding pearls of wisdom and tips on how to make your relationship better throughout the book. Within each paragraph is a way to do it and then he expands a little on how to do it. An example is when working out a conflict say "I heard" instead of "you said" that way your not pretending to know what the other person said or look for patterns in your life that keep repeating itself, if you find them, it is an opportunity for you to work through them and then change.

Another example is "there are two main options when it comes to dealing with your emotions in your relationship. One, we can use them to run our "poor me" story, and keep the faucet on, staying in our victim seat. Or, if we truly want to get empowered, we can use the rawness of our emotions to bring us back to our heart and greater alignment. Our emotions are feedback, helping us come back home to our integrity" (The Smart Couple Quote Book, Jayson Gaddis, 2017).

There are so many examples of tips and wisdom in this book that the reader would have to read the entire book on their own. This book will change the way you think about you, and your relationship with your spouse.

My Thoughts on the Book

This book is a good reminder that a relationship is a work in progress and it's not always a bed of roses. You have to work at a relationship if it is important enough for you. I love that this book is easy to read and understand. The author uses words that anyone can comprehend. The format is simple and easy to navigate with words of wisdom that reaches into your heart and tips that will make your relationship stronger.

I would recommend this book to anyone who is married and in a relationship. If you want your relationship to work then you need this book.
