With 40 years of marriage to celebrate, Phil Donahue and Marlo Thomas decided to interview 40 couples to learn what it takes to make relationships thrive long-term. Whether you're in a committed relationship or not, you'll love learning the back story of famous couples. You'll know how they met, their up and downs, and how they recover when they disagree. Each relationship is a little different but you're sure to find useful perspectives that resonate with you and can enrich your own relationships! 

I was a little reluctant to start this book because, while there were a bunch of couples I knew a little about, beginning with Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter, there were many I had never heard of. But this did not matter at all! Marlo and Phil introduce each pair so each interview is interesting! Besides being a fly on the wall while famous people talk about their relationship, you'll also feel like you've met some new people!

While younger people may not know who Phil Donahue or Marlo Thomas are, this book could be a good gift for newlyweds or perhaps an appropriate gift for an anniversary. The thread that runs through the interviews is taking the long view, and that's excellent and useful advice for anyone!
