So many "self help relationship books" have left me feeling like the author was asking me to be untrue to my feelings and needs. This is the first book that has made sense to me. I can now see that the two relationships in my life have something in common. The best part is that I now understand how to fix that.
This book is a fantastic piece of litterature for Anybody in a relationship. I would recommend it to anybody that have problems with their partner or just wants to become a better and more understanding partner and person. The performence is good and well spoken.
I found the content of this book invaluable in understanding relationships and have recommended it to many clients and friends. The narrator was difficult to listen to -- he seemed to have a patronizing tone oversimplifying the material with unnecessary emphasis on particular words and phrases.
Physician in Healthcare IT. Commuter. Listen to a lot of books. Recently introduced to Audible. I am hooked.
His voice is a bit boring. Message was good.
We can all learn something from this insight.
I know I did.
One thing I disliked about this audiobook was the focus on anxious attachment. I have avoidant attachment and would've preferred more suggestions toward a secure relationship. Overall this book provides a great understanding of what adult attachment is and insecure patterns people in relationships have. Very helpful in creating a positive secure relationship.
As an attachment based psychoanalytic psychotherapist, trained in London at the Bowlby Centre, I was intrigued about this book. I listened to it all the way through with a few short breaks and found it fascinating. Many people will find this clear and compelling account of how attachment styles manifest themselves and interact, very useful indeed for understanding themselves and relating to others. Beautifully read, though I'd like to hear more female readers for the science books! Well worth every penny or cent!
