"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!"

"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."

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!Read more ›
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
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.
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.
