We know, deep down, that love relationships need our attention, and yet there are a thousand day-to-day distractions that keep us from focusing on our selves and our partners -- until that moment of clarity when we finally feel the pain of a possible split. It might begin as a gradual loss of day-to-day closeness, a pang of being underappreciated, or a more significant waning of sexual satisfaction. As Dr. Felder cautions, these clear warning signs require our attention before a more serious breakdown -- leading to a breakup -- occurs.

In Wake Up or Break Up, Dr. Felder introduces readers to eight relatively small but hugely effective steps that have produced giant leaps forward in the sexual and emotional lives of thousands of couples. He provides practical insight into how to strike the necessary balance between being too flexible and not flexible enough with your partner. He explains why it's so important to successfully make the daily transition from work mode to being fully present, even if it requires a brief buffer zone of silence before calmly reconnecting. In what could be called a "magic bullet" chapter, he reveals that helping out around the house can be the quickest and easiest way to revive lapsed passion. And he offers thoughtful and proven advice on how to constructively address the sensitive subject of differing sex drives.

With a final chapter devoted to the sublime joy of long-term togetherness and how to achieve it, Wake Up or Break Up provides both the motivation and the means for making your relationship stronger than ever before.
