Wayne Allen cares about people. Reading this book is like having a private session with Wayne himself. The reader encounters his humour, nonjudgmentalness and useful directions for establishing and maintaining fulfilling relationships. The book is practical, straightforward and clear, not weighed down with jargon or academia. An excellent introduction to a life of personal development and meaning. We recommend Wayne, and this, his latest book.

Couples, whether in already strong relationships or those who are experiencing some ‘rough patches,’ will appreciate Wayne Allen’s latest book. Consistent with his other books and writings, in The.Best.Relationship.Ever. Wayne draws upon elegance, self-responsibility and unabashed honesty as the cornerstones for powerful and intimate relationships. Written with stories, case examples and suggestions, Wayne lets the reader in on his own real-life experimentation of these concepts with his wife and partner, Darlene. Wayne’s guidance does not permit distractions, excuses or blame and instead, coaxes the all-encompassing and honest awareness of the reader to strengthen their presence in their relationship. Wayne has added potent, yet easy exercises that traverse the realms of communication, problem-resolution, integrity, respect and sexuality that truly engage the reader to apply the concepts to their current relationship.

Wise. Warm. Wondrous. Witty. That’s Wayne and his Writing.
The. Best. Relationship. Ever. is a gem of a book on relating honestly, deeply, and elegantly. Based on years of handling and experiencing relationships, the book is written in trademark Wayne style : simple, personal, funny and profound. You can see yourself nodding in agreement, mentally rolling your eyes at the things that you do being now reflected in the book, and smiling because hey, the book understands you really well.
That’s what makes this book so special. That it talks to you. It seems to know you deep within your mind where all relationships begin. You are walking together to make the best relationship ever possible. For you.
Wayne outright tells you how it is : “Though the number of people in a traditional relationship is two, there is only one person that can change how you relate to your partner. You!”
So this book is neither a tool to change your partner, nor finding new ways to blame them, nor about discovering fresh excuses for your relationship being the way it is.
As Wayne puts it: “we are going for a walk into 100% responsibility.”
You learn – and more importantly, realise, that real, beautiful, honest and fulfilling relationships start with relating more deeply and intimately with yourself. That work on any relationship has to begin with work on yourself. That in order to have the best relationship ever you need to approach it with integrity, maturity, elegance and total responsibility. The book offers you several workable tools and techniques that enable you to actually experience better relationships – and does so in a manner that prods your common sense and tickles your funny bone in good measure.
Thank you Wayne C Allen for this remarkably intuitive and refreshing read. All relationships deserve this book.
