Publisher's Summary

Everyone struggles with jealousy, but not everyone understands the risks. Left unchecked, jealousy leads to unnecessary drama, stress, and abuse. For some people it can even end an otherwise promising relationship. Even for people who understand these facts, dealing with these emotions is difficult, so jealously ends up controlling their relationship and ultimately their lives. If you forget everything else, just remember this; understanding and managing jealousy is essential if you want your relationship to thrive. I've never met anyone who enjoyed feeling jealous. Everyone would avoid it if they could. So why do most people continue to struggle? Well, sometimes our jealous patterns are so deeply rooted within us that they can be difficult to untangle without some help. So what can you do? You can take advantage of the simple techniques for understanding and managing jealousy - both in yourself and your partner. Jealously needlessly damages so many relationships, so this book is here to help you understand this devious emotion so you can take control of it!

Insensitive and unhelpful

I purchased this book as someone who is struggling with jealously that is hurting my relationship and sincerely seeking to improve myself. I found the tone of this book to be patronizing, demeaning and entirely counterproductive for anyone who is looking to this book for help with an issue that already has them feeling ashamed and weak. The author can not seem to go 20 words without referring to this book's target audience in a scolding tone as "insane" "clingy" and "ridiculous". This book reads as if it was written by a man in the 1950's rather than a woman in 2016. The amazon description of this book states it will "give you a huge toolbox for dealing with emotional struggles". I find that the content of this book offers nothing more than a lay person's advice on how to not be jealous. The money spent to read this book would have been better spent on five minuets with an actual mental health professional. I was not shocked when I searched the author's biography and found her credentials listed as a "social scientist" and "personal coach", titles people like to use when they have no actual credentials in the field they claim expertise.

the book constantly attacks jealous partner

the book shows little empathy for the jealous partner and places all the blame on the jealousy and not enough on the partner that is flirtatious. If you can get past it there's some good suggestion on overcoming jealousy on chapter 4. I don't know if that work but they do make sense

A few very good insights

A few very good insights but not much else. I enjoyed listening to the Audible version. I enjoyed the last chapter about how jealous partners should be treated. Showing compassion and trying to understand us is way more helpful I think than another book I read which stated jealous partners should be ignored and told to go deal with their jealousy by themselves. I think everyone with a partner who has ever had a problem in their life would prefer their partner's help, encouragement, and support over none at all. I think jealousy works the same way. Jealousy, like smoking, or overeating, or anxiety, is just another problem some people have. Help is better than none at all and strengthens the relationship. This book shined a light on what other books condoned: empathizing with your jealous partner.

A gud first step to a life-changing transformation

The book serves as a good starting point for relationships to solve their jealousy issues. I felt that the examples could have been analyzed and deconstructed with finer details.
