She is also great at assessing your partner's needs and relationship style.

Be warned don't do it, she set up a phone session with me, never showed up and charged me 500 dollars I am still trying to get back from her bank.

I was dating a wonderful guy that was everything I ever wanted and just couldn't deal with getting "too serious".

I really liked this book, it seems to be lower on fluff, and higher on substance. This book will help you figure out your style and your personal needs in a relationship. She is also great at assessing your partner's needs and relationship style. This book gives sound advice, while lifting up your spirits.

Often the person that we have a great amount of internal conflict with is the exact person that can help heal wounds from childhood. Unfortunately, we come with different styles, and sometimes we need to adapt for the person that is having the harder time to commit.

She gives clear advice, and ideas on how you can best adapt to your partner without sacrificing your self respect, and dignity. Will this book work for me? It already has in helping me to reframe a past relationship, and hopefully in future ones, I can bypass some of those stumblings I have made in the past. I definate must if you think you should break up, or have broken up and want to get back together. Honestly, its just a great read to learn more about yourself.

If you think, "Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus" is good, then this book is the ultimate. If you'll follow her techniques word for word, you will definitely get results. Every mother should give her daughter this book for sound advice on getting and keeping the love you want. It explains beautifully, how the anatomy of a relationship is like dancing the tango in the sense of connecting , disconnecting and reconnecting. The author employs very practical smart heart skills to apply to breathing life and love back into marriages that have lost their luster and courtships that are not moving in the direction of commitment. I promise that this book will be well worth it's investment many times over. Forget your therapist. This book is all you'll ever need.

Although I think this book would help many men too, I am writing this review for women. This book makes you understand why "The Rules" work. I highly recommend both, but if you read and follow this book you really don't need "The Rules". Basically it comes down to most men are "distancers" because they are afraid of commitment and women are "pursuers" because they want commitment and this book tells you when to call and when not to call and why men wait to and other things we endure in the dating process.

I don't think it helps to get someone back, but it's great for preventing break-ups. Great for single women or women in a new relationship.

This book helped me understand dynamics of my present and past relationships. While the techniques seem a little amorphous, they do work! Useful for those without a mate or significant other, too. I recommend "How One of You Can Bring the Two of You Together" by Susan Page, also. These two books compliment each other well.

Unfortunately, this book does not provide much immediate help for a couple in trouble or a deeper understanding of relationships. There seems to be a good underlying theory but the stories are not in enough detail to relate to and the practical advice is limited. I believe the author knows this subject deeply but her editors should have caught that someone without that background will be challenged to understand it from this book. On the bright side, start reading this and you may quickly prefer snuggling with your partner.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Obviously all those promisses that this book will save your life/marriage/relationship are not to be taken seriously. I found this book to be very cryptic, the author uses a lot metaphors to explain the psychological behaviors of people and I am already confused enough about my relationship. While reading the metaphorical references you first need to make sense of that, then decrypt it and apply to your life, it just makes you go in loops and doesn't provide any proper simple and comforting advise. I think the author should have thought that the people who will need to read this book are likely to be in distress and the simpler the information is presented the easier it would be to receive it. Apart from that, I just didn't find the content to be very helpful either.

And the free DVD that comes with the book is totally ridiculous, I couldn't watch it and it went straight to garbage. I also only got through half of the book, like so many American books, it still tells you what's coming and what you are going to get when you are done with it. Somehow I have a feeling that by the time you finish reading it you will be looking at the back of the cover for that 'thing' that was going to come later in the book :)

I purchased this book in an effort to understand why I constantly pushed people away. I was dating a wonderful guy that was everything I ever wanted and just couldn't deal with getting "too serious". I was amazed to be reading about MYSELF on the pages. The descriptions of the "Distancer" and "Persuer" were SPOT on. With this book, I learned why I did the things I did and how to handle the situations differently (since clearly MY way wasn't working for me) Luckily, I patched things up with my boyfriend after coming to my senses after reading this book, and things are better than ever!! By the way, I purchased it on my kindle fire and liked it so much, I later purchased the actual book so I could share it with others!!
