Publisher's Summary

"Life is relationships; the rest is just details."

We are designed for relationships, yet they often bring us pain. In this paradigm-shifting book, Gary Smalley unravels the DNA of the three great relationships: with God, others, and ourselves.

All relationships involve choice. Gary exposes a destructive "dance" that characterizes nearly every relationship conflict, and offers five new dance steps that will revolutionize relationships.

The DNA of Relationships, the cornerstone audiobook in Gary Smalley's relationship campaign, will revolutionize the way you relate to your spouse, family, friends, and coworkers.

Bottom line simple easy to implement

I have been passionately pursuing personal and spiritual growth and development for the last 10 years. In fact it's my number one hobby. However in the mist of this passionate pursuit I've almost destroyed my marriage. My husband has felt unsafe, judged and unworthy. He's felt like he can't keep up with all my growth and it's caused him to feel unworthy. Reading this book has not only transformed my life but it's also transforming my marriage. It's teaching me how to take responsibility for my actions and my life and to let others take responsibility for their's. It's teaching me instead of being a fixer to be a validator and a good listener. Who wouldn't want a spouse or friend that validates, supports, hears and understands you. I am committed to being that person. Thank you Gary Smalley!

Could be half as long

Good grief, this book could be shortened by half if he would simply quit promoting his and his son's workshops and get to the meat of it.

Useful

This is a very clear way to learn about healthy ways to listen and speak to those you love and everyone else you meet in your day. It outlines how we all react to our fears and gives ways to think about how to navigate this during communication

The only person I can change is ME!

Excellent book! This is one I will listen to over and over. I have the Kindle and a paper copy and purchased one to lend to others! I can't change anyone but I can change myself. That is the key statement/point this book ultimately helps it's readers come to terms with. I am frustrated because things don't go the way I think it should. I've been focusing on gaining new perspectives. But I am still concerned about my marriage. all I can do is my part. God does the rest. thank you for writing this book Dr. Gary Smalley! May God bless you!
