Sex, Love or Romance helps people make sound decisions for choosing good lovers and partners by applying insights that are based on scientific research. Dr. Short's book has a fourteen-point test that defines the character of a relationship. These tests are specialised psychological reviews with a high correlation of reliability. With millions of marriages ending in divorce, the author argues that notions of what makes for a successful marriage are empirically erroneous. Sex, Love or Romance helps reduce the romantic margin for error. Sex, Love or Romance is a straight-forward approach that allows readers to quickly gain access to their understanding of personal relationships. The title also allows readers to gain helpful insights to their own relationships, with solid advice and solutions to existing problems.
