5 Relationship Books That Will Change Your Life

After reading What Type of Girlfriend Are You, I decided that some self-help relationship books, or guides, if you will, might be desperately needed (like ASAP). Agreed?

With that said, here are some remedies in book form that might help you change your relationship and life for the better. Plus, it’s crunch time (must have boyfriend before the holiday season)! These books cover it all, from finding a guy, what to do with him once you find him, and even getting over a break up…

1. Why Him? Why Her? By Helen Fisher, $16.50, at – The book offers a chemical/biological basis for four basic personality types and advice on how the four relate romantically.


2. He’s Just Not That Into You! by Greg Behrendt and Liz Tuccillo, $14.95, at – A fun, easy to read, yet sometimes a tad harsh book geared towards heterosexual women in need of a kick in the pants to get them on the right dating track. It is written by two former Sex and the City staffers (a consultant and story editor) and you know you can trust them.


3. Guide to Getting It On by Paul Joannides, $4.89, at – This is one of the best sex books on the market. It is clear, accurate, funny, and above all helpful, telling what you never dared to ask about sex, in full detail. A Guide to Getting It On is an excellent read for anyone of any age wanting to be truly informed about sex.


4. Women’s Pleasure by Rachel Swift, $14.95, at barnes& Women ask how to have an orgasm, men ask how to give them – and everyone wants to know how to get more of them. Women’s Pleasure is the best book on the subject: a step-by-step guide to how to make yourself more orgasmic.


5. It’s Called a Breakup Because It’s Broken by Greg Behrendt and Amiira Ruotola-Behrendt, $5.25, at – The Smart Girl’s Break-Up Buddy by Greg Behrendt. There’s no doubt about it– breakups suck. In the first few hours or days or weeks that follow, there’s one important truth you need to recognize: Some things can’t and shouldn’t be fixed, especially that loser who dumped you or forced you to dump him. It’s called a breakup because it’s broken, and starting right here, right now, it’s time to dry your tears, put down that pint of ice cream, log out of his e-mail, open this book to Chapter One– and start turning your breakup into a breakover.

    #6 Steve Harvey’s Act Like A Lady and Think Like A Man – As usual, Steve is keeping it real!

  • Ed

    I have or had a girlfriend who I would not have believed in a thousand years was using me. I thought we were very much in love. I was the happiest I had ever been. We had all sorts of plans and dreams which we were working toward. Now she has gotten money from me for school/living home improvement $40Gs and now will not communicate. I’m a sucker

  • deedee

    Ed! Are you kidding!? I’m so sorry. It’s her loss not yours. She lost a priceless diamond. It’s obvious that she didn’t love you, she used you! Not all men love and plan ahead like you Ed. Move on and get yourself another lady who would deserve you!

  • Marta S.

    I haven’t read this book yet, did read the *He’s Not That Into You * one though, have some catching up to do. I keep loosing the guys I like to hootchies or beauty queen/glamazon types, time to find a different kind of man, I think…

  • Truth

    Nancy I’m sorry to hear this. It seems like he never let go of his previous wife. Never get involved with men that have girlfriends or wives. They will never leave the woman for you, they like to have their cake and eat it too! I’m sure he does this regularly and he has more women besides his wife. Let this loser go!!!

  • Bill S

    I have a book to add-it’s available through but not yet in bookstores called “REALationships”. It takes a very basic approach that gets rid of the things that start a relationship off in the wrong direction-making a better future more likely and it works for new or decade long relationships

  • alexis

    then you should move on and find someone that has there own money and can provide for thereself an independent women and she must be a gold digger if shes leaving a great guy who loves her for a guy that can pay her bills and things like that

  • Abby

  • Abby

    Also a GREAT read is Why Men Marry Bitches!!!!!

  • mike

    I know quit a few hardcore players, they find the bitch a challenge so they pursue. This dynamic may seem like attraction to the woman, but once they catch her they lose interest.
    The guys who are genuine my be turned off by the bitch. That said, by all means stand up for yourself, from a place of love. Love for yourself and compassion for others.

  • Violet

    Unfortunately there is not much he can do unless it was in writing, because it’s considered a “gift”… you don’t watch Judge Judy that much do you? He’ll be lucky if he gets anything back and that SUCKS. Wish I could find my own “Ed”, my BF now makes me buy my own stuff & I can never afford it. He treats me to nothing & yet i still love him… ??

  • junkyard

    Thought there might be some valid things,re:life/relationships within sone of these pages.I haven’t looked deep,but there must be something to behove me(or you).I’m gonna look a lil’ deeper and let ya know what I find.kosh?

  • roxi

    i dont get it… was it an affair that lasted that long? Or was it a a marraige.

  • Karen

    I LOVE “It’s Called a Break Up Because It’s Broken”. It’s truly one of the best break up books every. If you read it and don’t say at least once “Oh my God I’ve done that” you’re lying to yourself. I recommend it to every woman I know.

  • mimi

    Thank you, thank you, thank you. I feel as if I’m reading posts from kids in the third grade when I read these posts. Let’s grow up and spell. Maybe then we can have better relationships.

  • Monica B.

    Be very careful you don’t end up married to him…I thought it was no big deal to pay for everything — I was contributing to the benefit of our family…now I have a young child and no savings. I anguish over every penny because the more I spend, the more I have to work and the less time I can spend with my child who is growing up so fast… :(
