“This book deals with a topic that is generally given very little attention and yet has enormous significance for the relationships between families and the way people interact. Ellie Fisher has drawn from a wide experience to deal with countless issues and countless contacts. This should be most enjoyable and insightful reading to all of us who deal with the challenges of making life work – particularly when it involves the developing of new and yet quickly important relationships.” —Herbert Pardes, M.D., CEO, New York-Presbyterian Hospital
“An engaging, insightful and psychologically astute take on the triangle between the woman who raised him and the woman who bed and wed him."—Susan Shapiro, author of Five Men Who Broke My Heart and Secrets of a Fix-Up Fanatic

Coming from a family of all girls, It's Either Her or Me offers critical insight into what the mothers of sons are thinking when a new woman enters his life. For all the stress and pressure we girlfriends put on ourselves, it was reassuring to learn that this internal struggle is also shared from the mother's perspective. They too need to navigate the fine line between wanting to protect their sons and welcome this new woman in his life. As Fisher points out, rather than walking on eggshells around one another, it is critical that their is communication and respect from both parties. I have learned both his mother and my mother from their difficult experiences with their respective mother-in-laws, whether it was not speaking to one another for years, or learning quickly that your way would always be wrong, that to overcome these issues takes time, effort, communication, and most importantly respect.
While I am still navigating my own relationship road, and before the ring is on the finger, I thought it was important to take the time and effort myself to learn what I could or should be doing differently.Read more ›
Since I am so blessed, I didn't think I could possibly benefit from reading this book. I was pleasantly surprised with each turn of the page at what Fisher was saying. I have heard so many horror stories of mothers-in-law and daughters-in-law not getting along. It's Either Her or Me" tells many of these stories for examples and the author gives insight into how the females and husband/son handled the situations. The advice throughout the book is very easy to comprehend and makes sense. Fisher spent many hours interviewing and consulting with mothers-in-law, daughters-in-law, psychologists, and husbands. I liked that Fisher didn't leave any topic unanswered.Read more ›

I couldn't even finish this book. The first chapter was ok, but the more I read, the more the author contradicted herself. Read morePublished on March 7, 2013 by Brooke
