This book is not for people who want to improve their marriage. After listening to this book I felt hopeless and heartbroken. This book doesn't have tips to help you improve yourself and your relationship. They suggest you leave the relationship and start over how does that help you. I can see alot of people using this as an excuse to divorce their spouse because it will validate your negative feelings towards them.
This audiobook is a must read for anyone who is in the relationship.The title is a bit missliding. Book describes 3 types of people out there.
ANXIOUS people are often preoccupied with their relationships and tend to worry about their partner’s ability to love them back
AVOIDANT people equate intimacy with a loss of independence and constantly try to minimize closeness.
SECURE people feel comfortable with intimacy and are usually warm and loving
Great to hear and learn. Will listen again, that being said... It's not an easy read and requires a lot of attention. The Q&A portions could have been done to better facilitate a listener versus a reader. Still something great for everyone to hear.
I enjoyed listening to this book and the narrator was not distracting. The text helps deeper introspection between your relationships and redirect any bad behavior in an understandable way. It's a must read if you want to understand yourself and others better.
I've always wondered why I have attracted people who are unable to commit or maintain intimacy. I feel like this is a handbook for a balanced relationship. I am looking forward to dating again, and have great hope that I will now be able to spot potential issues on the first date rather than six weeks or months in. Loved the book. Thanks.
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.
