Jealousy can invade every relationship, whether it be with husbands, wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, family or friends. If we love others and need their love in return we can all suffer from the pain of jealousy.
Dr Hauck believes jealousy is a self-defeating emotion which drives away the love we crave. He explains what makes us feel jealous, and shows us how we can control it. He distinguishes between jealousy, envy, possessiveness and suspicion and offers practical advice on how we can overcome these in ourselves and in those we love.

Look, Im just gonna write what happen. I bought this book the morning after one of my monthly jealous breakdowns. The night before I got into an argument with my girlfriend over the time she took to get home from work. I was feeling miserable for treating her that way, she is a good girl and have not giving me a reason to think she is cheating on me, I went to audible and wrote on the search box 'Jealousy' and this book came up. Started to listened at work (Im a painter at a shop so I can listen audiobooks or music all day, lucky me) and scared me the fact that I am on the path of those people who lost their partner because of jealousy, I also felt good to know people have changed and the advise is to the point, if you took the time to read my review I just wanna tell you: this book helps. Now I can control this impulse and overcome it. The help was immediately knowing this I felt as a tense muscle relaxed, it was a good feeling. Bought this book a week ago, Im still fighting it but not the same way, I dont get hulk angry, if I feel the urge to question her I can calm down quickly and cool down and think. She is seeing a better me now and Im glad is not too late, I know she loves me and I am thanking Dr. Paul Hauck for helping to have peace on my mind and therefore give and provide my part on a loving relationship. thank you so much Dr. Paul Hauck, God bless you.
I have already. 3 times in 3 days.
Surprised. This book is wonderful. This book is abour respect for one another in a relationship. This book is about helping you take it easy on yourself. A chance for me to really enjoy reflecting on the importance of respect for my wife and myself. A good look at fundamental ideas on worth and sharing happiness.
This is not psycho babble on jealousy. I mean the topics flow and are very interesting. No I am not an extremely jealous person. But I love my wife and she deserves to be treated, at all times, as an individual with free choice. (She is not property that I own) Her choice is to love me. And I will do everything and anything to cultivate that beautiful spirit in her. And I have learned so much on how I can improve my behavior and bring more to the table for her ..... and thus ..... to US! Great book!!! Oh. And I have over 300 self improvment books from audible. This is one of the best on relationships and just plain old loving the worth of different personalities. This book will bring you such freedom .... and your loved one will appreciate the change very quickly!!
I was really hoping for a more evolved and holistic approach. I was really unimpressed with this author and can't imagine how - speaking to people as he does - he could possibly be helping anyone. My impression is that he deeply dislikes the clients he is describing, and that he would be well served learning some less aggressive and demeaning language skills. I am returning this book.
I think he tried his best with what - for me - was poorly written material
This book is relevant for people jealous in their couple. Book should be renamed accordingly, it doesnt look into other types of jealousy ( between friends, colleagues etc.)
As a jealous person you need someone like this narrator/write to yell at you and show you how ugly your jealousy is.
I go back to chapter 2 once in awhile.
Absolutely, it gets to you, right to the point.
I don't have another one to compare to
Not yet but I'm going to
The Cure for Jealousy
This book is wonderfull and so full of truth, and suggestions. I believe this is a good book for everyone with this problem to read. It really gets you to think and act on what this diseas does to you and those around you.
Changed my life in the first hour that i listened to this :-)
"Good message but condescending narrative"
Lots of good information but the know-it-all writing style is a bit of a block to being able to take it on board, which is reflected in the narrator's tone of voice at times.
I enjoyed this book and it's definitely worth buying if you think you might have problem with jealousy.
I had to pick and choose what's relevant to me but the main idea is brilliant.
The minus would be a bit stereotypical approach to relationships where woman stays at home and man is off pursuing a career. If we can overcome this you will find this book very useful.
