    GREAT BOOK! Potentially life changing

    I am a Liberty University student who took Tim Clinton's Psychology of Relationships course and one of the books we were required to read was this one! It all made perfect sense to me and very clearly describes how our family of origin history and our style of attachment with our caretakers (parents)affects how we will do relationships for the rest of our life...if one wants to make changes in how they do relationships they must first understand why they do what they do!
