Nonetheless, in his book, The Passion Paradox: Patterns of Love and Power in Intimate Relationships, he states that this doesn't have to be the downfall of a relationship, stating there are key tips to turn a flagging romance into a more balanced, fulfilling and enduring love.

When it comes to relationship imbalance, you see Adult Attachment Theory everywhere so I thought Passion Trap would be some outdated model superceded by Attachment Theory. In reality it's a competing model that makes up for some of Attachment Theory's shortcomings. Both have a similar foundation - Avoidant vs Anxious in Attachment Theory is called One-up vs One-down in Passion Trap, Protest Behaviors in Attachment Theory are called Solutions in Passion Trap. But the biggest benefit the Passion Trap model has over Attachment Theory is the understanding that roles are dynamic. Attachment Theory tends to stick people in boxes and keep them there - IE if you're an Avoidant, you're supposed to be like that in every relationship. But with Passion Trap, someone can be a one-up with his spouse, and then be a one-down chasing an affair. In my opinion this is more how relationships actually work.

In a practical sense, the book also works as a relationship assessment and troubleshooting guide and is more accessible than any Attachment Theory book I've read so far. It should be really easy to relate to either the one-up or one-down role based on past experiences, and Delis goes into a ton of detail on how either role copes/thinks and the possible results of protest behaviors. The book should resonate with you. And if you're in the one-up or one-down role, the books gives you steps on how to regain your strength while acknowledging not all imbalanced relationships are salvageable.
Only book of it's kind. I always hated how when you are trying to decide if leaving or staying in a relationship is the right thing to do you never know if you are making the biggest mistake of your life or if you are doing the right thing. There seems to be no handbook to navigate through the matters of romance and love. I was amazed by the logic behind romantic emotions. If you are trying to decide whether to stay or leave in your relationship, READ THIS BOOK FIRST! It will help you to at least understand the relationship better and help you to know what to do to see if there is a chance if it can survive. The best part is that once you have gone through all the techniques and strategies you will know with surety if staying or walking away is the right decision.
I would recommend this book to everybody. It's like a manual for the relationships. Especially if you are in a crisis with your partner. This book will help to get out of unknown zone and provide practical tools to manage your situation. No matter what decision you make about your relationship author's methods allow you to grow. And when you grow, maturity will come. With current relationships or the new one.
No book has had a greater impact in my life then this one. I just started reading it and honestly its like having a friend logically taking you thur what is going on, My dynamic however is slightly different then what this book is intended for however its helping me understand myself more, I have been a One up and a One down but even so nothing really puts it plan as day in front of you then reading it in context of your current situation.

Update : April 2015
After releazing my relationship was with a Sociopathic Narcissist. I urge you to be careful in assuming the person you are dealing with wants to work with you to make what you value in the relationship work. Also look at what you actually value and really have in the person that your trying to work things out with. More often then not you may see that the reason you are even seeking out a book like this is because the person you are dealing with doe snot really care about you, or you have unresolved self worth issues in relationships.
Are you doubting a walk down the aisle? I was. I felt horrible because..after 2 years..I should know right? So, I purchased this book to dig and find out what is going on in my head and heart! What was wrong with me? Well, I did get some of the answers. What this book did was force me to be HONEST with myself. I felt as if someone UNDERSTOOD the feelings that have been going through my mind. My head said, you are crazy to walk away from this heart must not settle..he's not "the one". My head said but your 37 and want kids..he loves you. My heart said.. take a chance and the perfect one for you will show up. Look, this is not an easy read..this is tough stuff. If you are on the other side of this-you know for sure you want to marry but your partner is NOT SURE, this is an ABSOLUTE MUST READ. The book will HELP big time. But again, you must know this is not a "he's just not into you book"..this is compelling and gut wrenching and painful relationship REVIEW. I have cried reading it. I hope this helps. I have never written a review on AMAZON but I feel this subject is so important and I know others are going thru this too. Good luck.
Dean Delis lays it out for you... have you lost that loving feeling? Do you think your partner is commitment-phobic or afraid of intimacy?

This is the book you need to read. Everything you think you know about love and relationships is why you're having problems with them. Stop doing what doesn't work and balance out your relationship. You'll be glad you did.
I am tired of seeing so many books on relationships and "self help" that pathologize people and problems. There's lots of bad advice out there being given. This book is very honest and does not make pie-in-the-sky promises. However, it does offer very attainable solutions. That is, if you are willing to accept how success can only come through work and patience.
There's a lot of good in the book. I found myself relating to many of the examples. The biggest criticism I have of the book is that it attempts to stove pipe people into distinct categories. In reality, the lines are blurry.
