profound and actionable advice. Retaining the core message of becoming more
mindful in our relationships, this edition includes new and revised
material that addresses how we live and love today. A new preface touches

updates, including attention to online dating and modern communication
styles as well as new perspectives on anger and ending relationships.
“Most people think of love as a feeling,” says Richo, “but love is not so
much a feeling as a way of being present.” How to Be an Adult in
