    What Listeners Are Saying

    Praise for ‘Love Is Not Enough’

    I started this book thinking it wouldn’t apply to me since I am happily married but it does. Every single person can learn from this book. Whether you’re single, in a relationship or married, whether you’re LBGTQ+ or heterosexual, this is a great book.

    Jennifer Hing

    I absolutely loved the book. It was more like a long, wonderful podcast. He’s not a pompous doctor, he’s wise and relatable. I learned so much about relationship issues and power struggles. I couldn’t stop listening. This plays out the complexity of our weird relationship patterns and the difficulty of seeing why we get stuck in these awful patterns. Absolutely worth the audible credit for me. I will absolutely try something else by this author.

    Stefanie Jensen

    The book for everyone’s marriage! I’ve listened to it three times and watched my relationship evolve‼️ A must-listen for couples.

    Michael Harrigan

    Absolutely wonderful. Personally I started listening for entertainment value. I like hearing about relationship drama and thought there might be some interesting scandals. What I got was totally different. You follow a slice of the people’s lives for several months. And they tell their struggles with relationship in their own words. Their stories were relatable and the advice the author gives very insightful. It was so relatable that I decided to seek therapy for myself and set a firm boundary with someone in my life. But wow really loved it! Would recommend.

    Bestselling 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 fucked 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.
