John Aiken is a trained clinical psychologist he has written two other books and appears regularly on channel Sevens Sunrise. Alison Leigh is a journalist/broadcaster with over 30yrs experience in writing for Australia and New Zealand magazines.
Making Couples Happy, How Science can help get relationships back on track  is a companion to the ABC-series-helping couples rediscover the positives in their relationships and setting them up for long term happiness.
The 4 simple steps explained in the book are-
·         Talk
·         Connect
·         Support
·         Dream
With skills and exercises to work through. The book uses 4 real couples as examples and goes through their high and lows while using science to help get their relationships back on track. The book contains an index which makes it easy to look up issues and exercises.
The book was an enjoyable read, the exercises where satisfying and the skills to learn could be challenging. An upbeat approach to creating a happy long lasting relationship. Anne
