    I wish I'd had this book 20 years ago

    I spent over 20 years in a relationship where I kept trying to "fix" myself so my spouse would finally connect with me. I finally gave up. Some good therapy and a few readings of this book helped me understand that for the person who lives behind a wall, nothing would ever make me "right". The author describes so many situations I never understood. It makes me mourn the lost years but leaves me with no regrets about the divorce. I had unknowingly been using some of the techniques in the book for years, so that made me feel even better that I had tried everything.

    After I read it in relation to my marriage, I started consulting it about my relationships with my children, new boyfriends and friends. If you have people who shame, blame or guilt you, who won't take responsibility, who have a million excuses for their behavior... read this book. It doesn't have all the answers but it will help you understand the issues, if and how much YOU contribute to the problems, and if and how you can make your life better.

    Amazingly Helpful

    I had not been able to find answers to the mystery of my on again - off again relationship. Therapists had tried to help us and it would work for a while, then back to off we'd go. I couldn't figure out why I stayed but I couldn't seem to let go. And then I read this book and everything got clear for me. I wish I lived where this psychologist practices because I need this kind of clear straight talk! And I'd like to thank her in person.

    Great Book

    After reading some of the other posts, I think some people want to read the book and find the solution to their problems. I found the book very helpful and know that you have to do the work to fix the problems.

    Wah, Wah, Wah

    Not terrible but does not cover near enough about the real reasons (or solutions) to the problem, and tends to spend too much time whining and blaming......... ugh.
