    Learn how complete awareness can open the door to lasting transformation in work, worship, love, and all other areas of your life. Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh's acclaimed theory of mindfulness explores ways to shine the light of awareness into our intimate relationships. He examines Buddhism's four basic qualities of authentic love: kindness, compassion, joy, and freedom.

    Story

    I got about five minutes through before getting bored to death. The narration goes at a snail's pace, the narrator has a very thick accent that makes the audio feel clunky, and the content just feels like a series of very obvious and not insightful statements.

    Story

    This serves as a good manifesto for the conservative Christian "pull yourself up by your bootstraps, people who fail to succeed are lazy, follow traditional family values and don't forget to pray to Jesus" ethos. If you have no use for such things, it has little practical advice, and says exactly nothing of any great insight for self-improvement.

    Things I Wish I’d Known Before We Got Married was written to help you realize your goal of marital happiness. But don’t just listen to it - experience it. Grapple with the practical tips and ideas discussed, honestly share your thoughts and feelings, respect each other’s opinions, and find workable solutions to your differences. The more you do so, says Chapman, the more you will be prepared for marriage.

    Kourtney says: "I wish I knew"
    "Useful only for the most sheltered"
    Overall

    This book assumes three things about you: 1) that you are so inexperienced and naive about relationships, that you aren't aware that euphoric infatuation doesn't last forever, you haven't had sex with your partner, and you are oblivious to your parnter's true personality and habits; 2) that you have never lived on your own and are oblivious to the basics of paying bills and cleaning a house; and 3) that you are Christian and are willing to accept answers like "turn to God to resolve conflicts" as legitimate solutions.

    If you don't qualify the above, this book is rudimentary at best, and had little to say that simple experience of being in a few relationships hadn't already taught me. It also seems to skip over important issues like how much together time to ask of your partner when you live together. I'd return it if I could.
