Life Cycles — Relationships by Neil Killion is a well-researched nonfiction book that responds to the questions: How do our life cycles affect the depth of our relationships? Can we harness the cycles of our lives in a way that strengthens our relationships? Inspired by his own independent research, on prominent psychologist Daniel Levinson's work The Seasons of a Man's Life, Neil Killion has pioneered the first-ever cycle theory of life, based on scientific-style evidence. An offshoot of his theory has produced a radical, new way to look at relationships. He calls it confluence. This book explains the concept and with relevant historical and modern examples shows readers how they can use it to enrich and strengthen their relationships. Readers will understand why some relationships are doomed and while others endure the storms without suffering any harm. In this book, you’ll find the tools to assess your relationship and determine the cyclic moment your relationship is facing while understanding how to use the windows of opportunity to start afresh and mend suffering relationships.
The author uses historical and contemporary couples to support his thesis. Here is one of the examples: “Brad Pitt, who was born December 18, 1963, and Angelina Jolie, who was born June 4, 1975. They would share almost seven months of "Confluence" for every "Significant Year" when they were a couple, which is just about identical to William and Catherine.” The concept is intriguing, and the book contains revolutionary ideas that readers will find useful when navigating the different seasons of their relationships. The voice is strong and compassionate and the text is packed with intriguing information. Life Cycles — Relationships is one of those books that will both entertain and provoke powerful thought processes in readers. I found it very informative.
