Review


"A very helpful book and a very easy read."
- Susan Forward, Ph.D. New York Times Best-Selling Author of Toxic Parents and Emotional Blackmail

"Cue Cards For Life is a refreshing common sense approach to relationships. Ms. Steinorth has captured principles that work and has put them in a fun and exciting format. These principles are not only correct - they have the power to change lives. What parent has not torn their hair out over a teenager in transition? Cue cards offer help parents will appreciate. This is a great book for everyone who wants to improve their relationships. I am looking forward to recommending this book to my clients and to my classes in family relationships. When all is said and done the most important thing in a persons life is their relationships. This book empowers people to get the most from those relationships. Congratulations Ms. Steinorth your book is spectacular and fun. What a rare find!"
- Lee Reid, Ph.D. M.F.T.

"I enjoyed “Cue Cards for Life” not just because it gives out ideas that we can use in daily life but also that is easy to read and assimilate. Of course we all know most of these basic principles outlined in the book, but people like tend to “forget them” in the sometimes dysfunctional emotion and thinking in the fast lane of life. This is handy book for introspection, to keep to referring to as reminders of what is right and not just what gives transient emotional satisfaction at the cost of long term difficulties."
- physicianwriter, Library Thing Reviewer

"I appreciated this deceptively simple book of cue cards. More than simply a modern Miss Manners, Ms. Steinorth provides practical tips for smoothing and strengthening communication in every relationship and for myriad occasions, including everyday interpersonal basics everyone should know."

Format: Paperback
Every time you walk out the door, pick up the phone, or log on to your computer, relationships happen; at the store, on Facebook, at work, at home. People seem enamored of dysfunctional fictional characters--Sherlock Holmes (VERY popular on TV and the movies these days), Monk, House etc. This may be because we doubt ourselves, and our abilities to create and sustain viable, honest relationships with the people who matter the most in our lives.

Marriage and family therapist Dr. Christina Steinorth believes that "...it is time to bring grace, consideration and thoughtfulness back into our family and social relationships..." Her small but powerful book, Cue Cards for Life, creates written "sound bytes" for paying attention to your relationships, and developing logical, comforting guidelines to keep them healthy. Her book has nine far-reaching chapters: The Basics, Cue Cards for Love Relationships, Marriages, Babies, In-Laws and All Things Family, Cue Cards for Parents with Teens, Cue Cards for Interacting with Aging Parents, Cue Cards for the Workplace, Cue Cards for Friendships, Parties and Social Events, Cue Cards for Effective Apologies, and an excellent chapter of checklists, references and resources.

Many of the things that Steinorth discusses may seem to be the kind of thing you say, "Well, Duh," about, and yet how often do we just not think to do these common sense things? I recently had a falling out with a much-older sibling, over something totally ridiculous. I wrote three emails and threw them all away. Reading Steinorth's chapter on saying sorry, made me realize I didn't need to be wordy, or defensive. I wrote an email that was 3 sentences long!

This book is a must have for all human beings! It contains gentle reminders of common sense practices, as well as points out things that we might not be aware of about ourselves. For example, I always try to finish people's sentences... well, that can be very rude. After reading this book, I am a lot more aware of how I act around people. I find myself much more conscious of my actions and how I converse with others. It's and easy read and great for rereading often. I recommend it to everyone!

Pros: This book was handy because it does not require the reader to go through the entire book just to get the advice you are seek; it is easy to read and compact (in size); points out useful, but overlooked tips and ideas a person should do in different situation/relationships

Cons: Very few; Steinorth offers great advice, however, nothing particularly new or innovative.

Overall: would recommend book if you need help with getting back to the basics

The night after I received this book I laid in bed and read through it with an open heart and an open mind. I've been struggling with some relationships lately and this book reminded me with it's "cue cards" of some very important concepts and taught me several new things I didn't even bother to consider. The book is written "gently" and it is easy to consider the warmth behind each reminder. Thank you for the lovely book!

I received a copy of book through LibraryThing.com as part of early reviewer program.

I enjoyed "Cue Cards for Life" not just because it gives out ideas that we can use in daily life but also that is easy to read and assimilate. Of course we all know most of these basic principles outlined in the book, but people like me tend to "forget them" in the sometimes dysfunctional emotion and thinking in the fast lane of life.

This is handy book for introspection, to keep to referring to as reminders of what is right and not just what gives transient emotional satisfaction at the cost of long term difficulties.

By Jason Lamb on February 16, 2013
Format: Paperback
This relatively inoffensive little book contains practical advice for managing a wide variety of social relationships and situations effectively. After a brief topical introduction, chapters present a number of short tips that are each followed by a few paragraphs which explain exactly what is meant or how the tip might be applied. Nothing here is particularly innovative; tips include "Take precautions and prepare for emergencies," "Make eye contact when you're speaking with someone," and "Recognize and respect the personal space of others." I question how many would find anything in this book transformative, but the author presents the tips in simple language with clear examples, so it might serve for some audiences.

Additionally, while there are elements that assume heterosexual romantic relationships (the book does not specifically address GLBT issues), most examples are presented in ways that allow application across audiences. I found the book to be both inclusive and politically benign, a rare trait among books in the genre.
