Oak Park author Robert K. Elder is at it again with a new workbook — he published the The Mixtape of My Life: A Do-It-Yourself Music Memoir last year. This time he wants to help couples trying to learn more about their partner.

Read Your Partner Like A Book encourages couples to fill out the workbook to find out "what makes your partner tick," according to a press release.

The journal is designed for two people "with questions and prompts that can inspire new insight, communication, a little self-deprecation, and plenty of laughter."

It is Elder's ninth book. His writing has appeared in the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, the Boston Globe, and, among others.
