The author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Think Like a Monk offers a revelatory guide to every stage of romance, drawing on ancient wisdom and new science.
Nobody sits us down and teaches us how to love. So we’re often thrown into relationships with nothing but romance movies and pop culture to help us muddle through. Until now.
Instead of presenting love as an ethereal concept or a collection of cliches, Jay Shetty lays out specific, actionable steps to help you develop the skills to practice and nurture love better than ever before. He shares insights on how to win or lose together, how to define love, and why you don’t break in a break-up. Inspired by Vedic wisdom and modern science, he tackles the entire relationship cycle, from first dates to moving in together to breaking up and starting over. And he shows us how to avoid falling for false promises and unfulfilling partners.
By living Jay Shetty’s eight rules, we can all love ourselves, our partner, and the world better than we ever thought possible.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
If you’re working on building a lasting relationship, it helps to have a blueprint. That’s what former monk Jay Shetty offers in this practical audiobook, which draws on the ancient Hindu Vedas as inspiration. The Think Like a Monk author understands that modern relationships are clouded by phony ideals celebrated in schmaltzy love stories—and he offers his own cringeworthy proposal story as evidence. We loved listening to Shetty cut through the Hollywood haze with a ton of exercises (and even a mantra or two) to help us counter our own unrealistic expectations. He stresses that you can’t truly know another person until you understand yourself, which includes figuring out if you have a type—something that can actually hinder your ability to find true love. Shetty’s unassuming authenticity shines through in his narration. Whether you’re looking for a new relationship or trying to improve your current one, 8 Rules of Love is a great listen.
This book will help you understand different point of use of life itself, and how you can turn yourself in being the teacher and mastering all the signs life gives you of love.
I love Jays outlook and I found this book so helpful! It gives so many great ways of thinking and perspectives.
Hopeful for Happiness
This book had given me so much hope for happiness and love at a time in my life when I was feeling desperate.
I plan to listen to it again.
