Concise and well done

First of all this book defines relationship based on compatibility not just love. This is an important distinction, and the author does a great job of building her case, explaining myths prevalent in our culture and then step-by-step guides/tips. She really gets into explaining how to find a person who is compatible with you beyond just looks and the superficial trappings that can get us in so much trouble when seeking long-term commitment and real love. This book is also written in a gender-neutral way for man or woman, whatever sexual preference, so that you focus on the core of her message and not caught up in gender stereotypes. Well done! I would recommend this to anyone who is serious about going to the next level in taking responsibility for their love life or working on their existing love life, as she is adept at communicating to singles and couples already involved with each other.

Provides useful information

I wasn't sure about this author, but this is the second book of hers that I've read and found them both worthwhile. She has some solid suggestions for what to consider when getting into a relationship.

Outstanding

This describes me to a T, Why I have had failed relationships and felt like love has eluded me for so many years. Recently divorced, I have realized that I need to work on the person I am. Barbara's experiences are very helpful. Thank you!

This book is very helpful. I enjoy it a lot

I think the author has a great point of view of what love is and her theories on relationship, love and lust, and the reasons we stay in relationships. And of course, why we put ourselves in relationships in first place. The author is easy to relate to and I often felt that she is talking about my relationship (current and past relationship).

Overall, I think the author had great concepts on love and relationship. I think she was right on the money about the way women think. This book was good for the modern world, relevant to the dating world. The author was helpful for single and married individuals- if you are looking for someone or to fix your relationship. She helped you to make your own decision on your relationship. She gave you a better understanding on relationships. I really enjoyed this book, it helped work on myself and in my relationship. I would recommend this book to anyone.

Very well written and extremely insightful.

Absolutely loved it and didn't realize how many patterns I was repeating! Loved that it walks you through the good side and the bad side. While describing each good and bad traits to embrace or learn to let go of.

better-than-expected

The narration was great and the book flowed very well from beginning to end. It was also not a long listen and I was able to finish it while working. Truth be told, I uncovered some things that I didn't realize I was doing and also really hit home with some things I knew were an issue. That was unexpected and I'm very thankful for that. Hearing it from her perspective with details really resonated with me and brought some things home and for that I am thankful. I have seen a few people complain about her directing it towards men and not women but that's not really true. The traits apply to both sexes.

I think this would be a great book for people before they start dating and immediately beginning dating to potentially avoid some big disasters or time bombs as she puts it years later. also great for people who maybe need to come to terms with things they are in denial of or that they want to work on. I would recommend it for both halves of the couple to listen to.

Good Book

I listened to this 10 years ago on audiobook on CD. I was at a very different place. I was not ready to be in a relationship. I had a lot of work to do.

Listening to it now when I’m in a much better place was eye opening and help me recognize the work I’ve done and how much healthier I am and ready for a healthy relationship.

The book is mostly written from a woman’s perspective and I am not a fan of that but know it’s intended for both genders.
