"Love at Last Sight" by Chris and Kerry Shook

When I first started reading the book, I thought it was a book designed to bring married couples closer. Soon, however, I could see that this book was not only for married couples, but for everyone. Anyone who has or hopes to have a relationship with another human being can benefit from this book. Its daily exercises are meant to bring people into more meaningful relationships with one another. This book explains how to improve the way you treat others by having you think about how you feel when others treat you the way that you treat them. Pretty clever I'd say.

One of my favorite lines in the book is "Wherever you are, be all there." In other words when you are spending time with someone you care about, you should try to make them feel as if they are the most important thing in the world to you. And at that moment they should be. You should put all other things out of your mind and truly focus on the other person and and listen to what they are saying.

The addition of the daily challenge helps to keep the reader engaged in the topic. It creates opportunities for in depth, life altering habits to take hold in the reader without them even realizing it. "Love at First Sight" changed the way I will try to treat people from now on. Who wouldn't want their most important relationships to improve with every meeting? With some work the outcome will be a win, win situation for all involved.
