Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Palm Beach Post, 12/9/10
“A how-to on finding lasting love.”

WomanAroundTown.com, 2/6/11
“There’s a wealth of information not only about romance, but about many of the crucial decisions we make about our relationships.”

InfoDad.com, 2/10/11
“Good-natured and homily-filled…Livingston does have some plainspoken, sensible ideas about love and relationships. The best part of his book is the middle, in which he enumerates the virtues of ‘People to Cherish’…Worthwhile for many readers.”
 
Blogcritics.org, 2/14/11
“Dr. Livingston masterfully explains the different types of character and personality traits. In addition, he shows us how to recognize some of the character traits that may be damaging to compatibility and long-lasting happiness…It is a book that must read by individuals who are just about to get married or looking for a new spouse after a painful divorce.”

Tucson Citizen
, 2/13/11
“[Livingston’s] latest book reminds us that we’re defined by those with whom we spend the majority of our time. As basic as that seems, few of us fully comprehend the importance of how we should choose our partner.”

Spirituality & Practice
“Enlightening.”

Internet Review of Books, 2/23/11
“Readers searching for a lifelong partner are sure to appreciate [Livingston’s] candor.”

Kingman Daily Miner
, 2/18/11
“An encouraging book for those who have had their hearts broken because they simply did not recognize the good traits to look for in a spouse…An excellent read.”

Portland Book Review (website), 8/15/11
“A guide on who to, and who not to, love, since we are defined by those we associate with.”

Minted“As in his previous books, Dr. Livingston’s trademark gifts provide readers with an alternative to the trial-and-error of learning that makes wisdom such an expensive commodity.”

Curled Up with a Good Book, 8/21/12
“A comprehensive listing of the characteristics to look for as well as avoid when we embark on our search for a life-mate…A must-read for every teen, every person who is actively or even just considering dating, and every divorced person alive. That seems a sweeping statement, but this small book contains invaluable advice.”
