Title: The Reframe: Reframe Relationships

Author: Brian Maddox

Genre: Relationships, Self-Help, Self-Improvement

Book Blurb:

The Reframe is a self-improvement book with the primary goal of attracting a desirable mate from a male's perspective.

This book is composed of three main sections Social, Health and Wealth. These categories cover a wide array of topics and link them back into the main idea of finding a meaningful relationship that will stand the test of time.

How can you attract and maintain a relationship in perpetuity with a partner you truly desire?

The Reframe doesn't just tell you to be confident, genuine and non-needy like so many other books in today's men relationship book market. Instead it collectively shows you how to bring that confidence out of you naturally, ensuring you get the most out of your relationships and out of life.

This book tackles the idea of social conditioning and therein challenges the reader to push him/herself in interesting ways. The author argues that these somewhat unorthodox tactics and "reframes" are needed given societies view on relationships are not working as intended, citing an ever-increasing trend in failed marriages.

This book is a must read and does succeed in making the reader think about relationships in a most interesting, albeit alternative way.

My Review:

When it comes to relationships, it’s important to understand differing points of view and sometimes it’s necessary to reframe your thinking. While this book is geared for men, as a woman, I found it useful and intriguing. See, we’re all social creatures and we crave the same thing: to be loved and to love in return.

In The Reframe, Maddox takes a logical approach to dating and relationships. He incorporates today’s digital societal norms and breaks down what it takes to be more confident, attract a desirous mate and maintain the relationship. Maddox doesn’t just tell men how to be more confident but shows through examples how to naturally be the best man he can be. It’s not about fancy cars, money and Adonis physique that makes a successful relationship but by being genuine and engaging with a woman which reveals a man’s true heart. No mind games or tricks; just a man and woman interacting in a meaningful way.

Maddox asked for a female point of view and here is mine on The Reframe:

Men, you need to read this book! Not only is this an invaluable guide to relationships but Maddox speaks from experience. When he’s describing women and their actions, he’s spot-on. I found myself nodding in agreement about how women think and feel. If I didn’t know better, I’d think this was written by a woman.

A modern relationship book that will reframe your perspective on dating, relationships and connecting with your partner. I wish I had read this book when I was dating. What Covey did for time management, Maddox does for relationships. Highly recommend!

Author Biography:

Brian Maddox (1988) was born in Edmonton, Alberta Canada. For the first ten years after high school Brian continued to find himself in post secondary studies. After achieving his Bachelor of Commerce (BCOM) in 2011 at the University of Alberta, Brian landed a desk job as a full-time accountant where he completed his Charter (CPA) under the CMA legacy program in 2015. The choice to pursue never ending school seemingly paid off allowing him to purchase his first home by the time he was 25. Unfortunately, this monetary "success" didn't carry its way much into his relationships which motivated Brian to write his first officially published book, "The Reframe: Reframing Relationships." This book sites that a re-frame is needed with regard to relationships in today's society given the ever-increasing rate of marriages that now fail. Brian continues to spend the bulk of his time working as a full-time accountant, reading self-help books and studying for his CFA designation examinations. He hopes that his book will make a pivotal difference in the lives of its readers and ambitiously hopes that it even helps to straighten out society's misguided view on relationships.
