Melody, the reason I first read HNHN is because I read "The Exceptional Seven Percent". They are not the same thing. They are not competing methods. Dr. Harley has a terrific, complete system for fixing what is broken and missing in your marriage. Dr. Popcak shows what is possible beyond that, and the the Relationship Pathway to get you from one level to the next.

The reason I recommend it is because it is not about the negative things in marriage, so it is not threatening. It is a positive vision of how to make good better. You can't embark on building an exceptional marriage without fixing all the problems first, and Harley's method is unbeatable for that.
