I will continue to listen to this many times in my life.
When I was listening to this book, I had so many
I have recommended this book to many people...friends, family, and even clients.
If you actually know anything about psychology this may seem insulting at times. However the research is well presented and interesting. The authors have clearly done a lot of thinking on the subject.
The narration is extremely dry even for a non-fiction. You have to keep your mind on topic and sometimes that's hard.
This book made perfect and complete sense to me. I easily identified myself, along with my boyfriend of the past year. We have had ongoing relationship problems that began when we started to get close, and we had called it quits a few months ago. While we have discussed getting back together, I understand better now why he does the things he does, and why it affects me. It has also made me realize that the relationship is pretty much futile based on our relationship types, and how staying with him would destroy me, unless he can affect change. If nothing else, this book helped me get closure in the relationship so that I can move on, and also helps me identify the type of relationship I need to make me happy.
This is the first book I've read on attachment theory and I thoroughly enjoyed it. A lot of it are things I had picked up on over the years, but it did help me structure the data and also gave me more insight into some of the categories. I suppose if I had already read a lot of books on attachment theory, I wouldn't have gotten as much out of the book but if you are like me, go for it. you have to take some of it with a grain of salt and be careful not to categorize people too soon or too affirmatively.

Worth the Time and the Money...
I suppose for those that have never heard of attachment theory and are having trouble understand relationship mechanics this could be a useful book. But I felt like I didn't learn anything past the first chapter. I kept waiting for new information to be presented.
This book has some very insightful information that has really helped me understand myself, and also my relationships with people. Easy to understand and it is most definitely worth the listen.
This book and its contents makes so much sence. After reading it im definately going to look on relationships ang girls I date in a whole other way. Very intuitive and well written. I can greatly recommend this book.
Prospective buyers should know this book comes from a worldview that regards marriage and family life as morally indifferent matters of personal choice. Most of the couples profiled by the book are unmarried live-ins or sexual partners. One couple is homosexual. Some people will find that unproblematic, but attachment theories may sometimes be associated with people like William Sears and other Christian or pro-family figures. I thought it might be helpful to point out where the book is really coming from.
Personally, I did find some of the relationship advice to be fairly good, though not nearly so original as the authors imply. Much of this material is covered in marraige and communication books. It can be helpful to know if you are dealing with an avoidant or anxious person, so you can respond to them as individuals. Those who are really interested in the material in the book will probably find that reading the book is a better choice. That way, one can skim the chapters that don't seem so relevant, and carefully look at the material they can best use.
Those still dating would be well advised to understand the attachment style of their partners and to make decisions with eyes wide open. Still, if you are young and forming your moral compass, be aware of just how powerful authoritative books like this really are. It is inconsistent to talk about "deep, personal bonds", and then to promote live-in arrangements and unbonded sexual relationships on the next page. It is in the permanence of a solid marriage that people have their best opportunities for lasting happiness.
