While there are many self-help books addressing marriage issues, none is as pointed and straightforward as O'Neill's A Short Guide to a Happy Marriage. Like her highly acclaimed short book, Sheltering Thoughts: About Loss and Grief, this book will speak to its readers through its directness and simplicity. It challenges readers to understand and live by the tenets of a committed relationship. In the spirit of the bestselling book, A Short Guide To A Happy Life by Anna Quindlen, author Sharon Gilchrest O'Neill offers readers the same inviting and simple but sensible approach for embracing marriage, and provides the essentials of a long lasting relationship.
