50 Secrets Of Blissful Relationships-Book Review

By David Small •  Updated: 11/07/14 •  7 min read

So what makes “50 Secrets of Blissful Relationships by Michael Webb different from the thousands of marriage counselors and millions of relationships self-help books written and published every year.

Blissful Relationships

Let’s find out:

First of all, it’s great to see that, unlike many other authors, Michael Webb lets you inside his world. You get real-life examples of ways to solve relationship challenges, all based on his own personal life.

Second, unlike many other “experts” and marriage counselors, Michael Webb walks the walk. Michael Webb has never had a fight with his wife of 15 years, Athena.

Inside this book, you learn exactly what he’s done to make this a reality. Everything you read, he does or has done to improve his relationship, and that’s what I really wanted to see – experience and real-life practice.

The book itself is simply set out with about one tip per day and just continues like this until the end of the book. Just about every tip had me shaking my head in agreement, as it gave me real-life solutions and several of those “a-ha” moments of profound understanding.

The only real downside of 50 Secrets To Blissful Relationships book is that every tip is set out with the same formula: story or unrelated example, followed by how that example ties into relationships and that exact topic.

If you’re impatient or in a hurry, you can always start about halfway down and find out exactly what point he’s trying to make.

Also, instead of the tip titles providing a clear “how to solve X problem” or a clear topic description, it simply has a phrase that ties together with the information. Now while this is no big deal, it would have been nice to be able to skim the book to exactly the advice I wanted. Although if you read the information on the sales page, you can work out what information belongs where in the book. So it’s not too bad.
