Despite being only 2.5 hours long, this book covers an amazing breadth of material that includes attachment theory, trauma, and codependency and presents it in a clear concise format. The first half of the book, which presents the characteristics and dynamics of emotional unavailability, is painfully accurate. Yet, I also deeply appreciated the caring space she provides for emotionally unavailable people to address their issue. Smith's perspective as a life coach, as well as her complex understanding of emotional unavailability is refreshing and empowering for both partners in an unavailable dynamic. There is so much to say about this subject, but this is an awesome beginning! I can't wait to read the other volumes in this series!

Everybody wants someone to love and spend time with, and searching for your ideal partner is a natural and healthy human tendency. Just about everyone dates at some point in their life, yet few really understand what they're doing or how to get the best results. In Wired for Dating, psychologist and relationship expert Stan Tatkin - author of Wired for Love - offers powerful tips based in neuroscience and attachment theory to help you find a compatible mate and go on to create a fabulous relationship.

Tatkin illuminated the "end goal" to all this dating I've been doing, which is charecteristics of a secure relationship! He also includes some great quizzes to help you identify your attachment profile. I'm an island dating a wave (I thought it was reverse)!! Blah, blah, blah- I can't say enough good stuff about this book. A list of Pros: Its tailored to individuals prior to commitment so, I learned a lot more about negotiating partnership than I did in than in, "Wired for Love." I also appreciated that how he lovingly addressed the unhealthier spectrums of attachment. I simultaneously listened to Tatkin's audio program: Relationship Rx, which Tatkin himself narrates, and I appreciated the difference between Yen's tempo and Tatkin's. Yen's narration of the couple's arguments was at times real and others hilarious! An enjoyable read!

This eloquent book translates attachment theory and research into an innovative framework that grounds adult psychotherapy in the facts of childhood development. Advancing a model of treatment as transformation through relationship, the author integrates attachment theory with neuroscience, trauma studies, relational psychotherapy, and the psychology of mindfulness.

Narration is a bit dry, but the content provides a very thorough overview on the spectrum of attachment disorders and healing

In Ungifted, cognitive psychologist Scott Barry Kaufman - who was relegated to special education as a child - sets out to show that the way we interpret traditional metrics of intelligence is misguided. Kaufman explores the latest research in genetics and neuroscience, as well as evolutionary, developmental, social, positive, and cognitive psychology, to challenge the conventional wisdom about the childhood predictors of adult success. He reveals that there are many paths to greatness, and argues for a more holistic approach to achievement that takes into account each young person’s personal goals, individual psychology, and developmental trajectory.
