Contrary to the common connotation, "selfish" in this context is a life-long concept. It's selfish to want a wildly happily-ever-after relationship. Many people recognize chemistry, but relationships cannot thrive on chemistry alone. That's where this book comes in. Understanding the philosophical underpinnings of love is critical to understanding love itself, which is where the book begins. It then walks you through how to build on, and ultimately replace the chemistry, with something more substantial and exciting -- shared values, goals, mutual support, and inspiration. As mentioned by someone in a previous review, there is a lot of common sense in the book, and the ideas presented are suggestions or reminders on how, when you selfishly give (not an oxymoron) to an equally giving partner, you receive far more in return.

This short book was written by the internationally known well trained team of Kenner and Locke. Both are clinical psychologists with many years of experience and with very good standing among their clients and their peers.

The book addresses the issue of creating and sustainimg a successful romantic relationship in the context of the philosophy of Ayn Rand. In my opinion all of the information in this presentation would be applicable to anyone looking to find a mate even regardless of sexual orientation although that is not the focus.

If you have read my other reviews, you know that in addition to pros I usually address cons. Perhaps the lack of cons here is due to my adherence over many years to the philosophy of Ayn Rand and also to the fact that my own relationship was improved by application of the knowledge I found within its pages.

Some self-help books are full of interesting examples, and you are pretty much left on your own to take away principles; so you may err in how you apply the information.
This book definitely has a grounding in both philosophy and psychology. But because both authors are practicing (and I suspect, very skilled) psychologists their examples make very real what they are trying to teach.
My husband and I have been very lucky, though I know that Kenner and Locke would not call it luck. After about 40-odd years together, 33 of them married, we are still happily in love. And as I read through the book I realized how much we have done right.
Some of it, of course, is that we share their philosophy, that of Ayn Rand, and already did when we met.
Of course we have hit some rough spots along the way, but never rough enough to trip us. And when the authors describe the little case histories that illustrate their principles, I can see us, with perfect clarity.
Highly recommended. (Review by Cynthia Gillis, John has not yet read it).

My wife and I read this book together. We are also encouraging our daughters and all our friends - everybody we care about - to read it. The authors did a wonderful job presenting crucial philosophical and psychological principles of romantic relationships in a very simple and easy to understand way. The book explains the fundamental cause of the unhappiness and dissatisfaction that most people experience in their romantic relationships. It contains questions and exercises aimed at helping the reader to better evaluate his/her own situation; then it provides practical guidance on how to solve the problems and achieve happiness. Simply put, if you want to be happy and spend your life in harmony with your soulmate, this book contains the knowledge you must acquire and implement.

This is the first book about romance written from the perspective of Ayn Rand's philosophy of Objectivism...but really, it's kind of just common sense. The problem is that the Judeo-Christian/altruist ethics have dominated our culture for so long that they tend to override common sense when it comes to trying to deal with difficult issues in relationships.

The basic approach taken by Locke and Kenner is that you don't want to be either an altruist or a narcissist (a term they take from their experience as clinical psychologists). In other words, you don't want to walk all over other people, but you don't want to be a doormat and let other people walk all over you, either. Either approach is a romance killer...one is bad for yourself, and one is bad for your partner, so both are bad for your relationship (and hence actually for both you and your partner).

Rather, romantic relationships should be win-win, with each partner finding happiness in the relationship and wanting happiness for the other partner as well. They go through a number of areas of relationships (including, of course, sex), drawing on their clinical experience to illustrate common problems, and demonstrate how a rationally egoistic approach can create such a win-win scenario for each.

But before they even get to examining relationships as such, they look at a more fundamental issue: if you want to be loved, first you have to make yourself loveable. So the early part of the book is devoted to looking at traits of character to cultivate in order to be worthy of love, and some character flaws to eliminate that are common sources of conflict in relationships.

There is some valuable material here---anybody could probably find something to take away from this book that would help them improve their love life. Definitely worth a read!
