The sixth edition of Intimate Relationships is the most accessible, comprehensive, and current work available. This text has a broad reach, drawing from all the relationship sciences including material from social psychology, communication studies, family studies, sociology, clinical psychology, and neuroscience. Clearly on the cutting edge, it presents all of the new developments in the field and exudes vigorous standards of scholarship while maintaining a highly acclaimed reader-friendly style that sets the text apart.
Generally, textbooks are dry affairs that one puts down once class is over. For Intimate Relationships, however, I found myself reading the material independent of class study; I honestly found it that interesting. The material is often directly applicable and you cannot help compare the research and examples to your own relationships.
This book is a great read. Although it is a textbook, the chapter titles alone make you want to read it. This book gives you a nice break down of relationships and everything that goes along with it.
This book is very scientific based, besides the romantic cover you may think. it is very informative to read and therefore it is absolutely something to study. This book is divided by chapters on different topics, and they are equally important. I recommend this book to anyone who interested in relationship studies.
