"Emotional Intelligence" - Daniel Goleman
It doesn't discuss marriage or even relationships. But it does go into the science behind emotions. Having read this book helped me understand my emotions through my whole ordeal. An understanding that was greatly helpful when I was trying to control them.

second to Kalni's suggestion of "How to improve your marriage without talking about it"

amazing, eye opening and interestingly enough, i mentioned it to DB coach and she said that book changed her life too.

when both parties are willing to put effort in...7 principles to making marriage work by John Gottman.

This is a great book to read:

"Anger" by William DeFoore

If you don't feel like reading the whole book, read page 8.


"What is best for my kids is best for me"
Amor Fati

Here is a thread that was started many years ago with suggested reading material for posters on the Newcomers Forum. If you have book recommendations and would like to share them w/posters, by all means let's continue adding the recommendations here.


Sit quietly, the answers will reveal themselves when you least expect them to.
The past is gone, the present is a gift and you need to focus on today, allow the future to reveal itself when it is ready.

I am adding the Four Agreements.

It is a very easy read and I think in a way it reminded me of the Stoic teachings, just from a different angle.
