3 days ago, my relationship was in doubts. I went to B/N and read through what must have been 30 books on relationships. Most of them defined and explained, but none of them wanted to really help.....until this book. After reading several pages, it was like this book was written for me, and to me. So much insight and care went into this book that it has become my answer to saving my relationship. Now I just want to find out where the authors are having their next seminar!
I would suggest this book to any couple prior to marriage. I've been married 6 years and there is a lot that we've missed along the way. I think both parties have to be willing to participate in the book and practice the methods together. If one does and the other doesn't it defeats the purpose. Although my spouse is not reading the book with me it allows me to better understand myself and some of the things I see in him.
