Dynamic systems theory is infiltrating psychology in a variety of ways, increasing the sensitivity, realism, and scope of psychological models and methods. But I know of no other application that covers so much ground, from theory-building and modeling to methodology and measurement, and finally to clinical interventions that actually work. Gottman's determination to heal marriages fuels a rigorous scientific enterprise, based on a sophisticated understanding of complex systems and the mathematics for decoding them. -- Marc D. Lewis, Professor, University of Toronto, Co-editor of Emotion, Development, and Self-Organization: Dynamic Systems Approaches to Emotional Development The Mathematics of Marriage is a splendid, important, and extremely useful book. Gottman and colleagues set a new standard for psychological explanation with their exquisite conversation among theory, models, data, and clinical intervention. They also provide the most clear and accessible introduction to the mathematics I have seen. This work is compelling evidence of the power of nonlinear dynamic models for understanding complex psychological phenomena. It will also change forever the way you look at marriage. -- Esther Thelen, Department of Psychology, Indiana University, Co-editor of A Dynamic Systems Approach to the Development of Cognition and Action

"The theory's attractiveness is hard to deny. It neatly presents marriage as a process both mathematical and unpredictable, both stable and prone to catastrophe. Even the John Nash character in A Beautiful Mind would have to agree - love is like that." - Jordan Ellenberg, Slate"
