I found this book informative but difficult to read. It was dry and boring. I often had to read the information numerous times to get his point as it was often too technical and wordy.

I knew that my relationship was unhealthy but I didn't know what exactly was wrong. I finally found out after reading this book. This book tells us how to detect what is wrong in our relationships and what we can do about it. I have been working on my relationship using this book and now it is much better after three years. I am also proud to say that I am a much happier person than before. I am now craving for improvement in my life beyond this and have found a book that helps me do this. It is called "Rhythm, Relationships, and Transcendence" by Toru Sato. If you are at looking for something zen-like in your relationships and are emotionally ready for it, this book will be very useful. I recommend both books very much!
