Advance Praise for The All-or-Nothing Marriage
“If you’ve ever wondered what science has to say about how marriage has changed over time and what makes for a great one, this is the book to read. Eli Finkel is one of the world’s leading experts on relationships, and his insights are both comprehensive and revealing.”
–Adam Grant, New York Times bestselling author of Give and Take, Originals, and Option B (coauthored with Sheryl Sandberg)
“Eli Finkel has written an incredible analysis of the state of marriage, and a useful guide for everyone trying to make their relationship work better. He also promised us cheeseburgers if we wrote this blurb. Please get those to us ASAP, Eli.”
–Aziz Ansari and Eric Klinenberg, co-authors of the #1 New York Times bestseller Modern Romance

“This book makes a lot of sense, and it is written by an eminent scholar. It should be an essential part of every therapist’s bookshelf.”
–John M. Gottman, author of million-copy-seller The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work
“Fascinating! Eli Finkel offers us an educated, enlightening perspective on our most important adult relationship; better still, his perspective on marriage is one of hope and inspiration.”
–Dr. Sue Johnson, author of Hold Me Tight and Love Sense
“An engaging, perceptive exploration of a modern paradox. We need marriage less than ever for practical survival and social success, but we demand more satisfaction and meaning from it than ever. The higher we climb in our emotional expectations, Finkel argues, the more oxygen we need to pump into our relationships.”
–Stephanie Coontz, author, Marriage a History: How Love Conquered Marriage
“Marriages are like rapids-filled rivers, sweeping us along toward desired destinations, both emotional and practical, while imperiling the journey with unseen rocks of ruin.  With an account that is impressive in scholarship and erudition, Eli Finkel has provided a much needed chart for understanding and navigating the waters.”
–Robert B. Cialdini, New York Times bestselling author of Influence and Pre-Suasion
“Eli Finkel’s All-or-Nothing Marriage is an excellent, accessible guide to today’s high-investment, high-reward marriages.” 
–Andrew Cherlin, Prof. of Sociology, Director, Program on Social Policy, Johns Hopkins University

“No one knows more about the science of relationships than Eli Finkel.  This book is bound to spark a conversation.  A must-read for anyone interested in building or maintaining a strong marriage.”
–Jonah Berger, Wharton professor and bestselling author of Contagious and Invisible Influence

“What do we actually know about good (and bad) marriages?  That simple question is surprisingly difficult to answer, but Eli J. Finkel’s The All-or-Nothing Marriage is the best place I know to start.”
–Tyler Cowen, economics professor at George Mason University and author of Average is Over
