Psychology is the study of the individual, in all its glorious complexity. This complexity is found in all the features that make each person unique, for instance, our complex brain and elaborate emotional system. To attempt to discuss the full range of human intricacy is far beyond the scope of this book. In fact, discussion of the abstract and infinite ways psychology impacts our lives could fill countless libraries.
The goal of this book is to reduce such complexity. This is accomplished by first looking to the world of business–a world filled with concrete goals, defined processes, and recognizable structures designed to work together to produce a successful outcome. Commonly used business practices familiar to many in today’s workforce are presented as effective tools for managing the daily requirement and conflicts of married life.
