    I cannot believe how accurate it is.

    Recently my wife and I got seperated, and I found out two days before New Years Eve that she was filing for a divorce. I haven't even made it through the first 100 pages and have started applying what the book has recommended, and she is thinking about trying to work it out. This book is outstanding in its philosophies and research. It gives a new light to all situations and lets people know that they are not the only ones going through the sludge. Even if you are not at the point at which I am, and even if there are no problems what so ever in your relationship, definately read this book.
