" "Whether your marriage needs a tune-up or a major overhaul, these are powerful prescriptions delivered by a genial, wise man." (AudioFile)
A very powerful insight into why people do things in relationships and how everyone can improve their relationship with their spouse, frinds, family members and any other relationship. I have read this one 3 times already and find it to be very helpful in my life.
This book offers simple and practical advice for establishing, maintaining and recovering loving relationships. The author is upbeat and positive in ways that could encourage people to give love a try, even in situations that might seem difficult or hopeless.
My ex actually recommended this book after a heart-felt talk with him about our 17-year-old daughter and my difficulties with her. He was sincere and really trying to help when he told me that this book is helping him in his current marriage. He said it might help me understand our almost-adult teen and how I might be able to better motivate her to be more cooperative by showing my love for her in the way that SHE most needs. And this book was right on the money. I show my kids how I love them in MY love language, which, as my ex accurately stated, is acts of service. But my kids (and my ex) need words of affirmation, and when they don't do their service, I don't shower them with kind words. So this book and its advice is going to change my life and might repair a very difficult relationship with my teen, whom I love dearly but I didn't have much patience with her when she started pulling away and acting differently in her early teen years. I am now going to read the other version of this book aimed at children.
Thanks Dr Chapman!
1975, 2am on a long interstate drive between Leavenworth and OKC. Not enough gas, 40mph, am radio show, leaning over, listening thru static.
Many of the conversations, situations and issues mentioned in his case studies are replicated in my marriage. I felt Dr. Chapman was candid and honest and if that many people can derive so much success from a focused effort on behalf of one the couple, then there's hope for me and 23 years of marriage to a wonderful man!
