“One of the most delightful, clever and helpful books about marriage I’ve ever seen.”

- A.J. Jacobs, bestselling author of The Know-It-All and The Year of Living Biblically

“Practical, compelling, and often hilarious, this book highlights economics-based strategies for couples coping with the inevitable annoyances of a relationship. How can you coax him to do chores without nagging? Or change her mind about important decisions, quit yelling at the kids, or step away from the computer? The minute I finished this book, I started to experiment on my husband.”
Gretchen Rubin, bestselling author of The Happiness Project
