MELBOURNE, Fla., April 5, 2012  /PRNewswire/ -- The idea of sharing life with a highly successful person who makes lots of money, can afford the most luxurious trappings and has the ability to introduce their spouse to powerful, influential people just like them seems so appealing. But anyone who follows the news knows that powerful people like celebrities, politicians and corporate CEOs who win at work can be losers -- and cheaters -- at home. Why is this so? Do they think rules don't apply to them? And can they change?

Change Your Life, Not Your Wife: Marriage-Saving Advice for Success-Driven People (Heathrow Books; on sale May 14, 2012; ISBN 0985043407; $14.95) by licensed psychologist Dr. Tony Ferretti and physician Dr. Peter Weiss demystifies why highly successful individuals often fail at home as well as why the same character traits that drive career success can also destroy families. Using true-to-life examples, they outline the perils of being achievement or power-oriented in our intimate relationships. 

"The good news is that relationships can get better," counsels Ferretti.  "When couples are willing to work through their issues, dramatic improvement and healing are possible."

Dr. Ferretti specializes in treating high-achieving, powerful people in his own practice -- the kind of people we admire and wish we could be. We read and hear stories of powerful people caught up in messy divorces every day.  As a culture we find it fascinating to talk about what went wrong in the latest celebrity couple break-up.

Change Your Life, Not Your Wife will:

  • Reveal why emotional immaturity and self-absorption are common among the powerful.
  • Share ways beneficial traits in the workplace -- competitiveness, drive, perfectionism, control, and a critical eye -- cause destruction at home.
  • Offer actionable advice on turning around marriages on the brink of self-destruction.
  • Discuss why you must first change your own behavior if you want to change your spouse's.

Change Your Life, Not Your Wife can bring breakthrough changes to your marriage. This provocative message will challenge and encourage you as you get started on the road to improving your own personal relationships.
