Lovebirds is the revolutionary book about relationship personality-types, and explores in fascinating depth all the possible combinations of the eight personality types, which are named after different types of birds.
'One of the biggest mistakes we make is to treat other people as if they are just like us. I'm a Harley Street therapist, and over nearly twenty years I've been helping couples improve their lives together, and one thing is clear to me: most couples don't flounder through lack of love, but through a lack of understanding.' - Trevor Silvester.
Lovebirds includes a multiple choice test so that readers can discover which personality type they - and their partners - belong to.Then there is a description of each type - what makes them tick, their likes and dislikes, how they tend to behave, their body language, what they tend to look like, the line of work and hobbies they are likely to choose, their hopes and fears. In this section you can read about yourself - and your partner.
The final section looks at all the different possible combinations between the types, showing how misunderstandings can arise and giving advice on how to keep love between the different types of birds going and growing.
