Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Father Albert's approach, drawn from his counseling experience, is straightforward, well organized and supportive. The seven paths include "building solid foundations," respect, clear expectations, honesty and communication. Readers may get a slight feeling that the Miami-based priest and TV host is telling them what to believe or what is right, rather than giving tools to explore their own approaches to relationships. Some nuggets, however, will help identify a potentially compatible type of person and avoid typical complications. (Jan. 3)

More About the Author

Father Albert Cutié
Father Albert Cutié has had the special privilege of entering millions of homes throughout the world each day with his television and radio talk shows, as well as, his newspaper advice columns. His first self-help book, Real Life, Real Love (published by Penguin) is available in English and is already a bestseller in Spanish.

Father Albert became Episcopal and announced his decision to continue serving God as a married priest on May 28, 2009. He was originally ordained a priest in the Roman Catholic Church for the Archdiocese of Miami on the 13th of May, 1995. In addition to his work in the media, he served as a parish priest in several parishes in South Florida. He was President and General Director of Pax Catholic Communications (home of Radio Peace and Radio Paz in Miami). In October of 1998, Father Albert became the first clergyman to host a daily "talk-show" as part of a major network on international secular television. He later continued to host his weekly talk-show, HABLANDO CLARO CON EL PADRE ALBERTO, on the international network EWTN.

He also appears frequently on a variety of television and radio programs in the secular media, presenting faith perspectives on issues which affect our modern-day society. In addition to his work in the media, he is presently serving at The Church of the Resurrection in Biscayne Park, FL. He is a member of several community service organizations and is the first Cuban American to serve as a Trustee of the American Bible Society.

His new book "DILEMMA" is a NY TIMES BESTSELLER. In January 2011, it was announced that Father Albert will begin hosting a new daily Talk Show dealing with a wide range of human issues. Visit his website: www.padrealberto.com

What a great book! Fr. Albert offers practical advice for couples of every age and stage in their relationship. While his perspective is deeply rooted in traditional Christian values, he does not hit you over the head with it--because of that, along with his matter-of-fact writing style, I think anybody would appreciate his outlook, regardless of religious/non-religious background. He has an uncanny ability to hit the nail on the head when it comes to describing relationship problems, and is incredibly perceptive when it comes to getting past the surface of them and into the root causes. I really found this book helpful.

I have a confession to make. I wanted to write a little review on Albert Cutie's book, Real Life, Real Love: 7 Paths to a Strong and Lasting Relationship, but each time I wanted to refer to it, someone else had borrowed it.

In my family, my father's brother was a priest, and I recall my father questioning the soundness of my uncle's advice on marriage or child rearing with this question: "What does he know about buying shoes for five children?" I can't evaluate the utility of my uncle's advice on these matters, but as a licensed clinical psychologist and psychotherapist for nearly 35 years, I can say that Father Albert has done an exceptional job of delineating the major relationship issues of our times, and of providing time-honored suggestions on how to approach, build and sustain loving relationships.

The best evidence I can present to make my case is my recent experience: Real Life, Real Love: 7 Paths to a Strong and Lasting Relationship was being passed around among family and friends aged 25 to 75. The suggestions that Father Albert puts forth are reasonable, helpful, and hauntingly similar to the advice I have given across my professional desk for many years. For many readers, especially those who respond to intelligent self-help approaches to relationship issues, this is a good, and helpful resource.

After years (32 to be precise) counseling couples and listening to their pain, I have found a book that is profoung and honest.

Father Albert is practical, realistic and totally connected to his audience. Do not be fooled by the roman collar, this man knows what couples are really dealing with.

Great read!

I find this book practical and very useful for couples who are interested in building a lasting relationship.

Everyone can benefit from this book, you don't have to be married or planning to get married. If you are single it provides great insight towards finding yourself and how you can give the best you have to offer wherever you may be in your life. It also gives down to earth advice on how to find a life long companion, in todays world and how to proceed in a healthy relationship. Good advice makes sense!

Steps on how to get the right person from an article or book, does NOT cater to every individual and doesn't make sense at all!

My advise, read this book!
