Publisher's Summary

Jealousy can invade every relationship, whether it be with husbands, wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, family or friends. If we love others and need their love in return we can all suffer from the pain of jealousy.

Dr Hauck believes jealousy is a self-defeating emotion which drives away the love we crave. He explains what makes us feel jealous, and shows us how we can control it. He distinguishes between jealousy, envy, possessiveness and suspicion and offers practical advice on how we can overcome these in ourselves and in those we love.

I dont even know how to thank the writer

Look, Im just gonna write what happen. I bought this book the morning after one of my monthly jealous breakdowns. The night before I got into an argument with my girlfriend over the time she took to get home from work. I was feeling miserable for treating her that way, she is a good girl and have not giving me a reason to think she is cheating on me, I went to audible and wrote on the search box 'Jealousy' and this book came up. Started to listened at work (Im a painter at a shop so I can listen audiobooks or music all day, lucky me) and scared me the fact that I am on the path of those people who lost their partner because of jealousy, I also felt good to know people have changed and the advise is to the point, if you took the time to read my review I just wanna tell you: this book helps. Now I can control this impulse and overcome it. The help was immediately knowing this I felt as a tense muscle relaxed, it was a good feeling. Bought this book a week ago, Im still fighting it but not the same way, I dont get hulk angry, if I feel the urge to question her I can calm down quickly and cool down and think. She is seeing a better me now and Im glad is not too late, I know she loves me and I am thanking Dr. Paul Hauck for helping to have peace on my mind and therefore give and provide my part on a loving relationship. thank you so much Dr. Paul Hauck, God bless you.

Great book for ANYONE in a meaningful relationship

Would you listen to Jealousy again? Why?

I have already. 3 times in 3 days.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Surprised. This book is wonderful. This book is abour respect for one another in a relationship. This book is about helping you take it easy on yourself. A chance for me to really enjoy reflecting on the importance of respect for my wife and myself. A good look at fundamental ideas on worth and sharing happiness.

Any additional comments?

This is not psycho babble on jealousy. I mean the topics flow and are very interesting. No I am not an extremely jealous person. But I love my wife and she deserves to be treated, at all times, as an individual with free choice. (She is not property that I own) Her choice is to love me. And I will do everything and anything to cultivate that beautiful spirit in her. And I have learned so much on how I can improve my behavior and bring more to the table for her ..... and thus ..... to US! Great book!!! Oh. And I have over 300 self improvment books from audible. This is one of the best on relationships and just plain old loving the worth of different personalities. This book will bring you such freedom .... and your loved one will appreciate the change very quickly!!

For abusive/controlling individuals only

What would have made Jealousy better?

The author is demeaning to people who struggle with jealous feelings. I believe he calls them "wretched" in the preface. I was looking for a book to help me with feelings I struggle with but don't act on; this book is obviously geared toward abusive, controlling, manipulative people only and the author does not seem to want to help people but seems to be judging them instead. I will look for another book whose author is intent on helping people who are seeking to better themselves and don't want the third degree for negative feelings they are struggling with.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

The narrator was fine, the author not so much.

I found pretentious and condescending

What would have made Jealousy better?

I was really hoping for a more evolved and holistic approach. I was really unimpressed with this author and can't imagine how - speaking to people as he does - he could possibly be helping anyone. My impression is that he deeply dislikes the clients he is describing, and that he would be well served learning some less aggressive and demeaning language skills. I am returning this book.

Would you ever listen to anything by Paul Hauck again?

No

What didn’t you like about Bob Sinfield’s performance?

I think he tried his best with what - for me - was poorly written material

Keeping an eye on this book like I do my wife!

I'm joking. I loved this book. I recently discovered how much of a jealous person I am after my own infidelity. I did everything this book talks about; a full-on jealousite! I learned some very valuable tools from this book and recognize this is my issue and no one else's. I look forward to letting go of my control. I look forward to building my self-acceptance. This book showed up at the right time in my life. I needed this!!

Not much

Very disappointing. It wasn't much and more about spouse jealousy rather than over all. The ascent was nit understandable so over all not a good experience.

Mainly deals with couple jealousy

This book is relevant for people jealous in their couple. Book should be renamed accordingly, it doesnt look into other types of jealousy ( between friends, colleagues etc.)

Very Helpful!

Which scene was your favorite?

As a jealous person you need someone like this narrator/write to yell at you and show you how ugly your jealousy is. <br/>I go back to chapter 2 once in awhile.

Good message but condescending narrative

Lots of good information but the know-it-all writing style is a bit of a block to being able to take it on board, which is reflected in the narrator's tone of voice at times.

Worth reading

I enjoyed this book and it's definitely worth buying if you think you might have problem with jealousy.
I had to pick and choose what's relevant to me but the main idea is brilliant.
The minus would be a bit stereotypical approach to relationships where woman stays at home and man is off pursuing a career. If we can overcome this you will find this book very useful.
