By The School of Life

The definitive guide to arguments-and how to argue, better

Sex, money, in-laws, finances, the laundry on the floor…

Every couple argues. In fact, arguments-whether trivial or significant-are woven into the very fabric of romantic relationships. Most arguments stem from the disconnect between the message we want to send ("I need you to love me, know me, agree with me") and the manner in which we deliver it (with accusations, sulking, put-downs, sarcasm, even exaggerated gesticulations and forceful F-yous!),

A bad argument is nothing more than a failed attempt to communicate. By taking a close look at the most common arguments, The School of Life experts offer practical ideas on how to avoid conflict and improve communication between partners. This book teaches us why arguments happen, what their symptoms are, and how to resolve them effectively.

The School of Life is a global organisation helping people lead more fulfilled lives. We believe that the journey to finding fulfilment begins with self-knowledge. It is only when we have a sense of who we really are that we can make reliable decisions, particularly around love and work.
