Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Drawing on personal experience and case studies, the Prathers (Notes to Myself), human-potential workshop leaders in Arizona, argue that breaking up is seldom the best solution for a troubled marriage and can wreak emotional havoc in children. They make a strong case for avoiding today's trend toward separation psychology-the belief that humans function better when they don't ``need'' others. Detailing the eight stages (``mindsets'') of ``real'' relationships, the authors show how partners can protect their marriage against such threats as infidelity, financial insecurity and even the special problems of step-parenting. Candid examples of how the Prathers overcame obstacles in their own marriage add to this book's credibility. (Jan.)
Library Journal
New Age inspirational writers Hugh and Gayle Prather continue their promotion of long-term relationships, one of the themes explored in Notes to Each Other (Bantam, 1990) and A Book for Couples (LJ 2/1/88). Decrying "separation psychology," which emphasizes self-fulfillment over fidelity, the authors assert that leaving a partner rarely makes anyone happier. Drawing on both their 30 years of married life and their 20 years of practice as marriage counselors, the Prathers outline the eight stages of a relationship, point out common difficulties, and give practical-though sometimes simplistic-strategies for coping with affairs, infatuation, finances, and stepfamilies. This basic marriage counseling guide is recommended especially for self-help collections where New Age books are popular.-Lucille Boone, San Jose P.L., Cal.
