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.

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.
