Who's Pushing Your Buttons: Take Control and Stop the Stress | [John Townsend]

Who's Pushing Your Buttons: Take Control and Stop the Stress

The person who pushes your buttons is likely someone who matters to you - a spouse, a parent, a boss, a fellow church member. Almost always this difficult person is connected to you by blood, love, faith, or money, so you can't just end the relationship without causing pain and upheaval in your life. Our friends and today's culture will often advise us to abandon such relationships quickly - to end this unpleasant chapter and get on with our lives.

Publisher's Summary

The person who pushes your buttons is likely someone who matters to you - a spouse, a parent, a boss, a fellow church member. Almost always this difficult person is connected to you by blood, love, faith, or money, so you can't just end the relationship without causing pain and upheaval in your life. Our friends and today's culture will often advise us to abandon such relationships quickly - to end this unpleasant chapter and get on with our lives.

Psychologist and author Dr. John Townsend disagrees. "Your button-pusher is not someone you would easily and casually leave. You are intertwined at many levels. It is worth the trouble to take a look at the ways the relationship you had, and want, can be revived and reborn."

    "Another excellent book from John Townsend"
    Would you listen to Who's Pushing Your Buttons again? Why?

    I will listen to this book again. This author has terrific insight on emotional and recovery issues and I always find helpful information in his books. Even if you aren't having relationship problems, you can find helpful tips for any relationship in this book.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Who's Pushing Your Buttons?

    I can't really name one moment that stood out, but much of the book was very helpful. The author is a psychologist and Christinan.


    What about the narrator???s performance did you like?

    His voice is very pleasant and easy to listen to. Since the author is reading his own book, he makes the stories come to life.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    the book is for anyone who is in a difficult relaionship

    "Total Misrepresentation!"

    NO WHERE in the audible review is this book listed as a DEVOUT Christian guide to dealing with difficult people nor are the author's fundamentalist beliefs even mentioned. However, 75% of this book is about God, bible verses and what "Jesus would do" parables. I am a spiritual person and do not mind references to God. Yet, the title and the review are incredibly misleading. Also, there are several instances where the advice provided is based less on research or best-practice therapy and more on the author's belief in "Gods Will for the Family."
