This book is written in a superb manner and has more useful insight in it on relationships than any book out there, most definitely coming out on top compared to any I have ever come across. The format is easy to follow and I especially appreciate the way it does not have to be read in any particular order in order for it to make sense. The way the book is organized allows the reader to skip and go directly to whatever topic applies to them at any given point in time. Dr Kate clearly knows her material and her extensive experience in the relationship business is overtly apparent. This book has truly helped me gain valuable insight and knowledge that I will most definitely tuck away for future reference. I really feel I am so much better prepared for whatever relationship stage I find myself in, present or future. The guidance presented is logical and do-able, which left me feeling very encouraged and hopeful. It seems there is so much false information out there and Dr Kate addresses that directly in this book: myths are distinguished from reality... which I also found to be particularly helpful. I would recommend this book to virtually anyone who has ever been in a relationship or ever plans to be in one. To not take advantage of the information Dr Kate has so brilliantly and fervently gathered and formulated into such a clear, concise volume would truly be a sorely missed opportunity...Was this review helpful?
