Some couples wonder if they have the mettle for a committed relationship, or the momentum for long-distance love, or the reflexes for fighting crime. Unsure couples waste years looking for answers in each other's eyes, or in the offices of behavioral therapists. And yet, each night their sleeping bodies reveal more than any doctor or private detective could ever discover.

With this book, a couple can unlock the meaning of their chosen pose. All thirty-nine poses (including Classic Spoons, the Tobogganer, and Softserve Swirl) come with easy-to-identify illustrations, detailed descriptions, and training tips. Handy icons indicate which positions are most therapeutic for snorers, outdoorsmen, or those who work on their feet.
