Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Barbach ( For Yourself , LJ 3/1/75) and Geisinger ( Kicking It , LJ 5/1/79, o.p.) have written a very perceptive and practical book on helping relationships to endure. Their emphasis on monogamy distinguishes this from other titles, and since society seems to be embracing sexual conservatism, it should be important reading for the 1990s. Three sections discuss healing after failed relationships, entering and nurturing relationships through the ritual of courtship, and commitment on a lifetime basis. Numerous examples of contemporary couples help illustrate specific points, but the many names tend to be distracting. However, the authors counteract this by maintaining an authoritative and insightful tone throughout. Recommended.-- Elizabeth DeMarco, Onondaga Cty. P.L., Syracuse, N.Y.

    A Good Read!

    Authors Kevin Kennedy and Mary Moore present a clear analysis and a useful set of prescriptions for long term corporate success ¿ delineated by detailing eight challenges and describing how to meet them ¿ but the main value of their book does not reside primarily in their general advice. The real heft lies in their excellent real world examples, which you can use to draw your own conclusions. The illustrative anecdotes from Cisco (where Kennedy was a senior vice president) and other companies are among the book¿s high points. They are vivid and well-chosen, with all the detail needed to make them rewarding and informative. The book¿s style may be a bit pedestrian and jargon-filled, but don¿t let that deter you. We assure you that the detailed inside examples make it all worthwhile.
