yes, I would listen to it again. I want to make sure that i get the references correct. I would want to make sure i could quote this book when giving insight to people who are thinking about divorce or getting married
it was not judging. it was providing a point of view of pros vs cons to help make a conscious decision in a relationship.
Yes, but it is better to let some sections sink in and think about before you go on.
I have been married to my present wife for sixteen years. Had i listened to this book earlier, i would have realized that she was more patient and willing than i gave her credit for. it allowed me to see that the decision whether my relationship was worth saving, wasnt mine to make. I think this book changed by attitude and thinking about how people treat one another. I'm glad I heard this book before my wife did. Saved me from a lot of embarrassment and pain.
This book is based on research with other couples and what types of issues in their relationships made them happy they separated or happy they stayed and worked on issues. I had just separated from my husband when I listened to this, so I had already made my decision, but this book made me feel more confident in myself and that decision. I really enjoyed the narrator's voice as well.
I'm still listening to this and I think even with these "diagnostics" it will take time to sort out my own feelings, but it really gives me a lot to think of. I felt relieved that I'm not the only one stuck in "relationship ambivalence" She shows how we slip into this place. Relationships can be confusing - she helps shed light on what's going on.
A lot of good things to think about in a more constructive way than just worrying.
This book doesn't make any decisions for you. It goes through a series of insightful questions allowing you to decide if your relationship is too good to leave or too bad to stay. Excellent!
Gave me clarity on the issues in my relationship and whether to leave or stay.
A gentle and easy voice to listen to that match the content ideally.
For any couple, this is an exceptionally well-written and valuable book. It provides an extensive list of issues that challenge relationships written in simple language with clear real-life examples. It also has many analogies to help the reader understand the concepts and ideas presented. It guides the reader in a gentle way to consider the issues they may face in their relationship and whether to stay or no. It certainly helped me. It's rare for me to write a review but feel compelled to as it was so rewarding. I highly recommend this book.
listsening to this book its clear what's best for a confused relationship LOVED IT! thx
Amazing insight in to relationships. I related to 90% of things talked about. Make sure you have a pen and paper ready as I am now going to by the hard copy and highlight sections. Enjoy your new future with or without your current partner.
This book boils things down. It makes you see things that many of us overlook. Relationships get messy & reading/listening to this (while taking notes) really helps put things back into prospective. If you find yourself in a situation/relationship where you know you've 'got it' pretty good but... There's something keeping you on the fence.. (about making a decision on whether or not to stay). Read this.
I really liked this book. I mean... yes, sometimes it was a little corny and i may have giggled a time or two. The message, though, is incredibly simple and on point. It very easily guides you through stories of other couples and explains what each partner felt and why. And even more valuable, it directly asks you the questions that can guide you to the answer you already know. I would recommend this book to anyone, even those not facing this choice.
I can see value in these lessons reaching even casual, work or familial relationships.
