This book was HIGHLY RECOMMENDED to me, but unfortunately, I did not find it highly insightful. For me, there was really no new information or insight and the examples of relationship situations seemed a little immature or unrelateable. I do think it's worth reading for those in their late teens and early 20's, or those who have not had the exposure to determine what's even considered a worthwhile relationship to pursue. Perhaps I was just expecting a deeper presentation and reflection of the issues.

I love to hear Mr. Gardere on talk shows. However, this book did not provide in real concrete help. The book focused on Post-Traumatic Slavery Syndrome and how it affects our relationships as Black Americans. I could not finish the book because he did not give a prescription for healing. I was left hanging like a doctors tells me my arm is falling off but prescribes me aspirin for the pain.
The foundation of the book uses slavery again as an ailment or crutch instead of a stepping stone. I say get a second opionion from a doctor that will state the cause and a cure to an ailment.
I wish I could give it a -5 stars.

Format: Paperback
Dr. Jeffrey Gardere tackles the "black love" arena head-on with his guide to loving one another and overcoming adversity within your relationships. Using real-life incidents, he shares with readers what most relationships go through and how to get rid of negative behaviors, stereotypes, and game-playing.
Outlining many situations from his work as a clinical psychologist, Gardere helps remove the barriers and challenges most African-American men and women face today. Touching on topics that get down to the root of the problem, which he believes stemmed from slavery, he helps readers understand their thoughts and feelings, offering suggestions on how to heal, fix and maintain after the problems are resolved.
Who wouldn't want to stop the cycle? With light, sincere and honest feedback, this is great reading for women and men alike. This book may be the antidote that everyone has been searching for. Get in line for your prescription...
