The book examines this idea and explains it in an easy to read way without losing therapeutic value. After the subjects and ideas have been explained there are multiple self-designed exercises which are intended to help the person examine him or herself as well as their past relationships and what they truly want. They include things like the persons strengths, their weaknesses, guilt, and resentments, accountability of self and other and many more. The last section of the book talks about how a healthy relationship should exist as far as communication, sharing, time apart, respect, sexuality, and other aspects.
The book is designed not only for those who have been through unhealthy relationship, but also those who have been effected by attempting to or being in a relationship with those who had unhealthy relationships. The exercises work for both men and women no matter which side they were on as well as individuals of any sexual orientation.

This book is amazing. I ordered this book and it has changed my life. I have always been that person who felt I needed another to feel good about me but generally ended up with the opposite. After reading this book that is no more. For the first time in my life I am good with just being me,. If you have had bed relationships this is a must read book for you
Truly remarkable. I have worked with women and men who have been in unhealthy relationships for 20 years and I have yet to find a better manual to work from. Self-help in most cases is a sketchy thing because most do more damage than good. This book is written for normal people, but with clinical information that can transform your life. As a professional the ground breaking change to psychological principles is a truly amazing thing move over Maslow, Kohlberg , and others Nutt has replaced your theories in 158 pages.
