The Relationship Protocol: How to Talk, Defuse and Build Healthier Relationships by Debra M. Roberts is a self-help book about how to communicate in relationships that might not be as good as they were, or as good as they could be. It can be a friendship, a love relationship, a work relationship - all are covered in this protocol. The chapters take you through the relationship protocol and its steps in a logical way and illustrate how the RP works by using real life examples.

The Relationship Protocol: How to Talk, Defuse and Build Healthier Relationships by Debra M. Roberts is one of those rare self-help books that combines a good layout with good content. Far too often you only get one of both. You know all those pretty books with worthless content? This is not one of them. I was surprised to see that some things I have recently done with a challenging person in my life are actually the right steps. I was using the relationship protocol without really knowing about it, and I was wondering what I was doing right - because over the last few weeks things did improve a lot. And that was with me only using the steps of the protocol. Now that I have read the book, I gained an even better insight into how relationships work, and how you need to communicate if you truly want to be closer to the people you care about. I would definitely recommend this book to people who have some challenging relationships in their lives, and who would honestly want to work on making them better.
