About the Book

Building Better Relationships: A Guidebook for Men by James Swaniger presents a practical, real-world guidebook for men that can help them develop the self-awareness and skill sets necessary to achieve fulfillment at home, at work, and most importantly, in relationships. Most men have been there. They wonder why life doesn’t get better, why they keep hearing the same complaints, and why life never seems to improve. The capacity for personal fulfillment lies within. This capacity breaks down into five natural abilities we all possess; the ability to feel, communicate, to tell the truth, to understand ourselves, and to play. Many men lead fulfilling lives and are aware of these abilities. Many others struggle with fulfillment because they are unaware, or cannot access these abilities. In Building Better Relationships, author Swaniger creates a roadmap any man can follow, so that whatever degree of personal fulfillment he may be experiencing, he can find a deeper and richer life.

What Others Say

“A former mechanical design engineer turned therapist introduces classical Freudian therapies to troubled hardhat and lunch pail guys in need of a psychological lift… It’s decisive, proactive and thoroughly masculine  self-help with a meat-and-potatoes approach to recovery that turns enlightenment into “On the Job Training.” An innovative approach to psychoanalytic therapy aimed at men normally averse to self-help guides. “

Kirkus Reviews

“Most relationship improvement books are marketed to women. Perhaps it’s because women are more eager to fix and/or improve relationships. Men are known for avoiding in-your-face emotion and are unlikely to read a book about relationship building unless coerced by a partner. This guidebook on improving relationships, written by a male therapist, caters exclusively to men and is a great resource to help them do the inner work necessary for transforming their relationships. “
