SYNOPSIS: (From Amazon)
Best-selling author Mark Manson brings his signature no-nonsense wisdom back to the subject he started his career covering: relationships. Being with your partner may feel like rainbows and unicorns, but that doesn’t mean you have a healthy, functioning relationship. Sure, we all need love…but love is not enough.
In Love Is Not Enough, Mark’s first Audible Original, you’ll follow five real people over the course of six months as they navigate f–ked up romantic situations, ranging from dating app addiction to marital affairs to absurd fantasies. At regular intervals, they check in with Mark, share their stories, and soak up some advice. As you listen to these candid, funny, and moving conversations, you’ll learn how to stand up for yourself when you feel the most vulnerable. You’ll learn how our imaginations derail intimacy, how our deepest desires can lead us into trouble. You’ll learn how to open yourself up, and you’ll develop the courage to say and hear that necessary word, “no.” You’ll learn how to love. And you’ll learn that love is not enough.

I was offered to review the audible book Love Is Not Enough by Mark Manson and I thought it sounded like an interesting take on dating. It follows a few individuals all going through different romantic relationships and how they manage that path.
I liked how Manson didn’t just preach information, but showed real life accounts of what he was talking about playing out in these relationships he was following. I liked how it was all different people from different walks of life and not 6 people going through the same story. It gives it a much more accurate view for readers. I love Manson’s bluntness and straight to the point way of describing things.
While I do love the delivery and the overall story, I wanted more. I wanted maybe more viewpoints. However, this is a self-help so help from those experiencing it is probably best. Maybe I liked it so much I just wanted more. Maybe a sequel? That could work.
As someone who doesn’t read non-fiction as often as I should, I found this an interesting book and had me thinking a lot about my own relationships. I think listening to it as an audio book even added a little something that would have been missing if I had read it like a standard book.
Overall, I’d recommend this to anyone who is curious about romance and that connection. What is enough in a relationship? What is there real goal? Check it out and let me know what you think.
