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!
This book is educational in a way that should be part of our foundational education as humans. I appreciate the structure for effective communication immensely. Communication in a relationship is a skill that is so basic that we often assume that it is inherent. It is not.
Many thanks to the authors for their incite.
So much good stuff in here! After following many wrong paths to love, this book taught me how to understand myself and other people in compassionate and healthful ways. Highly recommended!
I enjoyed listening to the book and thought the narrator was wonderful. The theory makes sense, and I can see ways to apply it in my own life.
However, about 2 hours into the book I had totally gotten the point they were trying to make. The theory was well explained at the beginning of the book, so toward the end I was tired of listening instead of hoping that there would be more. Also, there was a good chunk of the book dedicated to quizzes and questionnaires that are just not something you can do while driving.
