The title says it all! In this book, psychiatrist and neuroscientist Dr. Amir Levine and Rachel Heller scientifically explain the different attachment styles we and our potential partners develop over the years. It’s an easy read to help you build self-awareness about how you relate to others and build fulfilling connections. Highly recommend this one for book club!
Often if we experience an affair this becomes a traumatic experience for us. We feel stuck, lost, in shock, embarrassed, defensive, angry, etc. Perel describes this process utilizing both her own clinical examples of couples she treated over the years, as well as the experience of her trusted colleagues. Perel walks us through the healing process from a different perspective, one that is neither prescriptive nor judgemental. This is a must-read not only for clinicians and those personally impacted by an affair but also for anyone in a relationship.

Every day we make choices—about what to buy or eat, about financial investments or our children’s health and education, even about the causes we champion or the planet itself. Unfortunately, we often choose poorly. Nudge is about how we make these choices and how we can make better ones. Using dozens of eye-opening examples and drawing on decades of behavioral science research, Nobel Prize winner Richard H. Thaler and Harvard Law School professor Cass R. Sunstein show that no choice is ever presented to us in a neutral way, and that we are all susceptible to biases that can lead us to make bad decisions. But by knowing how people think, we can use sensible “choice architecture” to nudge people toward the best decisions for ourselves, our families, and our society, without restricting our freedom of choice.
