Publisher's Summary

In this supportive and straightforward guide, Lundy Bancroft, the author of Why Does He Do That?, and communication specialist JAC Patrissi offer a way for women to practically take stock of their relationships and move forward, with or without their partners. Women involved in chronically frustrating or unfulfilling relationships will learn to: tell the difference between a healthy yet difficult relationship and one that is really not working, recognize the signs that their partner has a serious problem, stop waiting to see what happens and make their own growth the top priority, and prepare for life without their partner, even as they keep trying to make the relationship work.

Paradigm Shift

This book completely shifted my paradigm. I found this book after my wife told me she wanted a divorce and I could not see why. I actually resented her for wanting to divorce me. While reading this book I identified my own self fascination and immaturity as the root cause of our marital problems. It has changed my outlook and the resentment I had towards her is gone.
