"What we have learned from you has not only changed our lives, but the lives of our children and grandchildren. Thank you for teaching us the things our parents couldn't and for helping us discover ourselves..." -- Dani & Jeff Einsohn
From the Publisher
Not just another "white tower" mental health book written in hard to understand technical language, this is an easy-to-read series of actual, real-life events. It allows the reader to get a true sense of the critical importance of communication in interpersonal relationships. It is written for anyone wishing to learn "how to" incorporate healthy and effective techniques in their everyday lives. The methods are explained, practiced using interactive exercises, and then used in real-life stories that are marked to refer you to the technique being used. The book contains simple, easy to learn methods that Mrs. Gale has used to assist her clients for over 26 years.
The book's title is a metaphor for any event that triggers an automatic emotional outburst. The author uses several real-life situations that she has encountered in her professional counseling and business consulting practice to point out how, by using the proper communication skills, problems can be resolved without degenerating into a family or business crisis.
Have you ever been trapped in the "Bermuda Triangle ?"

The experience gained from twenty-six years of dealing with every interpersonal problem imaginable has been crystallized in this clever and incredibly useful volume. Readers will find this book an excellent source of common sense, sure to keep their attention while they are learning sound and vital relationship skills. A must read!!
