  1. One of the few books that may really change your life The relationship/self-help book market is booming. When looking for one of these books you are presented with a bewildering array of “experts” and “specialists”, each with their pet theories about where men and women come from or what “rules” you should apply to your relationship. 

  2. Life Changing!!! Let me start by saying I am not a self-help book devotee. That said, this book has revolutionized my relationship with my husband and taken it to a new level. BUT… I recommend this book for only those seriously committed to REALLY wanting an honest, soul-fully deep relationship. This is not a quick fix book full of easy answers. If you are looking for a book to tell you how to fix your partner or get them to be what you want them to be, don’t buy this book. 

  3. Solid insight, not just for after problems start. When I told a pastor friend of mine a short time ago that I was ready to start pursuing a relationship again he recommend this book. When I noticed that it referred to itself as a guide to couples I thought maybe he’d made a mistake recommending it to me, however, as soon as I started getting into it I realized why he thought it’d be helpful to read even before I got into a relationship.
