Publisher's summary

Real love starts with you. Loving someone else requires courage and vulnerability. And in order to create deep and authentic relationships that really go the distance, it's important to develop self-awareness and a willingness to take responsibility for your experiences. You've heard the saying, "You can't love anyone unless you love yourself first." But in the midst of life's distractions and society's myths of flawless romance, how exactly do you do that? Loving Bravely offers 20 powerful lessons to help you explore and commit to your own emotional and psychological well-being so you can be ready, resilient, and confident in love. By understanding your history and past relationships, cultivating an unshakable sense of who you are, and determining what it is you really want in a romantic partner, you'll be prepared to create the healthy, lasting love your heart truly desires.

Did not enjoy the narration

The narrator was really bad.
She sounded so bored and fake. Like she didn't really care about the subject matter but was pretending to care.

That narration though...

The content is really good. It highlights many researches themes that I have read or heard by other reputable sources. The activities give you an opportunity to put the information into practice. I liked the content so much I ordered a hard copy too. But.... the narration is just bad. I enjoy a good book in tape and know that a person's tone and inflection can mean everything for how the information is received. This one was almost too much for me. If I weren't so into learning the crux of the topic, I never would have made it past the forward.

Relationship school for anyone at any relationship stage!

Alexandra Solomon is right up there with the Gottman’s when it comes to what she can teach anyone about relationship with others. Brimming with insightful, data-driven wisdom. I wish she read it all.

I wish I knew about this book before now!

We are never born with the necessary skills to make a relationship work, so it is either trial and error, or learning, hard work, and open communication.. This book is a great resource to listen/read.. I highly recommend this book for any healthy relationship seeker..

Wonderful

This is one of the only books I’ve been able to listen to all the way through. I love the perspective and the way that book is laid out. I also printed out all the worksheets available online and used them as I was listening. These tips and tricks can be used for all intrapersonal relationships. Not just romantic ones great read over all

Did Siri actually narrate this book?

I cannot hang with this narrators diction. She sounds like Siri and pauses in the wrong spots. Hopefully, the paper version will be better.

A must read for anyone committing to relationship

I wish I read this book in my twenties. Now in my forties it helps me find affirmation and words for lessons learned through my own experiences. It also helps me find new solutions and answers. I love how it offers a positive attitude and perspective of turning roadblocks in relationship into stepping stones.

Wish I had this as a young adult! Holistic

Fabulous, helpful. practical and unassumingly profound. The narrator wasn't the best. Might want to buy the book to refer back to.
