Apr 06, Minnie rated it liked it. Easy read with practical and immediately implementable tactics. Pretty gimmicky, but also nice anecdotes and I do believe some of the strategies could be helpful. This book would have been more beneficial had I been in a romantic relationship when I read it, but I can still see how I can apply these tactics at work and with my friends and family.

A quick overview of the table of contents gives an idea of the scope of the book. The nine chapters include How can a fight be good? They show how differing perceptions of a situation can cause friction, give insight on how you can tell whether an issue is likely to turn into a fight, and how to habitually consider points of view other than your own to head off a fight at the pass. They suggest rules for fighting fair based on the CORE elements, describe different kinds of fight types, provide tests to help you and your spouse determine what fight type you both are, and predict how fights between the different fight types will turn out.
An especially useful chapter is Fighting through the Big Five which gives couples a heads-up on hot-button topics money, sex, work, parenting and housework that are the most likely to cause dissension. A major component of the book is the interactive app for smart phones and tablets, available for free with the purchase of each book. It would seem to be both helpful and fun.

However, the activities which the book describes range from self-tests and quizzes to setting an alarm to alert the reader to perform a daily activity suggested in the book. Even without the app, I highly recommend this book. Much of its wisdom about the physiology of anger, the elements of a healthy fight, and fighting fair could be applied not only to couples but to a variety of people who find themselves in disagreement: parents and kids, extended family members, friends, and colleagues.
A wealth of quotes included in each chapter along with an illuminating back-of-the-book essay on anger and its management round out the offering. The Good Fight would be an especially helpful book to give newlyweds. But married couples of any age will find much that is useful and practical in its pages.
