The Pragmatist's Guide to Relationships

by Malcolm Collins


A great career takes hard work, and we know that. And yet we expect our relationships to bloom naturally. The truth is that your relationships have a far greater impact on your happiness than anything else. Just like having an intentional strategy helps you build a great career, thinking through how you approach partnerships and relationship structure can lead to the rewards of extraordinary relationships.

This is what Simone and Malcolm Collins will help you with in The Pragmatist's Guide to Relationships. The Collins have started The Pragmatist Foundation to uplift people through this philosophy, and all of their books' proceeds go to this charity. The Pragmatist's Guide to Relationships will help you find the people you want and need in your life, attract them, and keep them around.

Favorite quote

It would sound truly bizarre for someone to expect a successful career to 'just happen naturally'. Yet it is entirely normalized to expect that good relationships will.
