While there is some interest to this book, the theories are not quite strong enough in this reader's opinion to justify a full book. Yes, each individual can be identified in a certain way, with certain characteristics brought to the forefront of the persona. However, the book clearly states that most people are a mix of the styles, but doesn't give any help to those readers who may be trying to figure out what their split means. Rather, the fictional characters that are given as examples are all one-sided and no help in truly understanding how this theory relates to a true individual.

I appreciated that Dr. Martin explains that all relationships can work so long as the parties to the relationship are willing and able to pay attention to the needs of others, but this was not a clear cut win in terms of useful knowledge for me. Rather, the book seems to say only that you should pay attention to how you are speaking and how that speech may be interpreted by others. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 158270256X, Paperback)

Every day, millions of people turn to books, online dating sites, and marriage counselors with one goal in mind: to find—and keep—the romantic partner of their dreams. In Elemental Love Styles, counselor, astrologer, and interfaith minister Dr. Craig Martin gives readers the tools to identify and work with their unique roles and desires—and maximize their romantic relationships as a result. 

            Using the language of the four elements, readers easily identify their element and embrace their deeper needs for love: creative fire, who desires recognition; intellectual Air, who flourishes with freedom; emotional and intuitive Water, who thrives with reassurance; and practical earth, who is dependable, strong, and solid. Packed with tips, tools, and examples, Elemental Love Styles, will help anyone wanting to create and maintain a deep, personal, and lasting relationship—beginning with loving yourself. Elemental Love Styles does not judge readers or their partners for being who they are, but rather opens up possibilities for compatibility and happiness. With a perspective set on love and collaboration, readers gain self-knowledge and cooperative skills, not just tools and tricks for temporary fixes. Regardless of who we are or what kind of relationship we desire, Dr. Martin affirms that we each have the opportunity for relationship happiness when we understand our own deeper need for love.
