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.
If you are plagued by the go or stay question, this book cuts through your own tortures and quickly gets to the point. It is fair to both staying and leaving. I found it very helpful.
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.
The book was a big help. Especially for someone like me who needs a way to clarify my decision. My only issue is the book starts off with stories about something she might do, or he might do to make u uncomfortable. Toward the end it is mostly things HE might do to make you uncomfortable.
I would love to see this book in a workbook format. I like the structure of the book because the author forces you to think and make decisions based on facts.
The narration of the book was excellent. The Narrator has a pleasant voice with proper tones and inflection.
I love the diagnostic questions and how it starts from really bad.. get out now diagnostics to its annoying but you can work on this diagnostics. very thorough and helped me figure out things I can work on!!
I saw myself in some of the behaviors that make a relationship too bad to stay. I assumed it would be pro woman point of view but it's very fair on both sides. I realize I also have a responsibility for this mess I call a relationship. Good wake up for me.
This book was very informative. It was like I had a therapist in my own home. There wasn't anything that I didn't like about this book. If you're not sure if you're going to break up with your significant other this will help you decide.
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!
