Through trial and error, study and research, he has come up with a new roadmap to all types of relationships between you and family, between you and friends, between you and co-workers, and between you and a lover or potential one.

How “conventional wisdom” is hurting your relationships
Jerry Brook is The Good Together Guru, and he can help you make your relationships better. Really.
Now he isn’t a fancy Ph.D. therapist or M.D. What he is, is a person just like you. He has had his share of failed relationships…personal, business, intimate. And he decided to figure out why some relationships succeed and some fail.
His career trained him to be analytical and observant. So, he put those qualities to the test.
And one thing that he learned over the past several years of studying relationships is that the “conventional wisdom” you’ve been taught doesn’t work. You’ve heard the advice: “you need to communicate,” “relationships are about compromise,” all's fair in love and war,” and so on.
Some of it is partially wrong, some of it entirely wrong, and some of it is destructive. And he can, and does, explain why.
Better than that, he can show you how to create Good Together relationships in your own life.
As selfish as it may seem, it all begins with you.
You are the common link in all of your relationships.
A Little About Me
I’m Jerry Brook, the Good Together Guru.
But, before I tell you who am, I’m going to tell you what I’m not.
I’m not a psychologist, I’m not a therapist, I’m not a Ph.D., and I’m not a medical professional.
Who I am, is an ordinary person, just like you.
I, just like you, have over the years, experienced the ups and downs of relationships.
I’ve lived, I’ve loved, and I’ve laughed. I’ve lost, I’ve had regrets, and I’ve made a lot of mistakes.
I’ve also delved deeply into the “conventional wis-dumb” that is relationship advice. For much the same reasons as you may have; to gain some understanding into the mechanics of relationships, to learn more about myself, and to learn how to do a better job of navigating my relationships in the hope of making sense of it all.
What I have learned along my journey is that most of this aforementioned “wisdom” is just wrong—maybe not all of it, but a lot of it. And yet, we continue to consider it, read it, hand it out to our friends and loved ones, and practice it ourselves, even when we know that it’s not going to be all that useful, or, end all that well.
I'd like to show you what I've learned.
I'd like to show you how to have better relationships.
