This book gave me hope, and a lot of wisdom and insight into changing my behavior which then changes my partners behavior.
There are many helpful stories, however the one that stood out was about agreeing in an argument to at least some of your partners concerns and how this will soften them and help them feel understood.
I have not, but Susan has a soothing voice and even when I speak to my partner, I can hear her tone in my mind as a gentle reminder to choose my words carefully and speak in a calm and caring manner.
You do have power and control by first looking to yourself.
I feel like this author spends the first chapter talking about how qualified she is to tell us how to fix a relationship on our own. Her voice is annoying to me as well. Sounds like something from the late 70s/early 80s as far as recordings go. Sorry I spent the credit on this.
