EAST VALLEY PHOENIX, Ariz., Jan. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Chris M. Lyon brings her years of expertise as an intuitive Personal Coach and Relationship Expert to help and inform partners, as well as their family and friends, about healthy and committed Leading and Supportive Relationships. The book features results from an extensive survey asking 300+ dominant or submissive partners probing questions about who's in charge and family acceptance, and establishes that women can be leaders in the relationship as well as men. Mental health professionals also share their knowledge on the subject throughout the book. Readers are already identifying with the information and insights from Leading and Supportive Love: "The description of my type in this book is spot on, not just with what I'd like from a partner, but in describing how I feel about myself." "This book is the very first book that I have read that explains this relationship in such a clear fashion." From the book: "The Dominant and Submissive Relationship is an ancient and contemporary harmonious dance that has become mysterious, magnetic, powerful, and controversial in modern day society. It's a law of nature for socialized animals and humans to have hierarchical relationships, whether at various levels or in various ways. There are those who answer that call in a more literal, thorough way. The couple has a "pack leader", or a dominant leader; and a submissive partner. Through history to modern day, both roles have been held by both men and/or women...Oh and yes, this is a relationship where both partners are equals." This book shares case illustrations, research insights, and surprising details that may make you look at this type of long-term, committed relationship in a whole different way, no matter what gender you are. Ebook formats are available for $8.99 as well as paperback for $11.99 through Amazon, Apple, and Barnes and Noble, and other online sources. At 32,000 words, it describes Leading and Supportive-types and helps the reader figure out if they (or a loved one) fall into either category. The author guides partners through mindsets and actions for successful, loving relationships, including healing and preventative measures.
