A Remarkable book
How often is it that you read a book that is so enjoyable, so informative, so thought provoking and so valuable that over the course of the next two years you purchase and give away nearly 20 hardback copies of that book? That is what I have done with Charles and Liz Schmitz's book, Building A Love That Lasts. I am 58 years old and have been divorced for over 15 years after nearly 20 years of marriage. I not only have learned more about relationships through their book than through any other means. I have found the book to be so compelling and insightful that I have given copies to many single men and women that I socialize with as well as newlyweds and those who have been married for decades. Their books and research are not only applicable to "loving" relationships, but they detail the principles and behaviors that are necessary for ALL relationships such as compassion, commitment, concern, attentiveness and respect. They show us, through their decades of research on "successful relationships" that it is often the little and simple things that matter and that hearing "I love you" at the end of a phone call often means more than a diamond necklace. We can all learn from the research and stories Charles and Liz provide. I can't wait to get my hands on their next book!
