About the Author

Carl "Tuchy" Palmieri was born in 1942 in an old mansion belonging to the former mill owner of the factory where his father worked. His family was one of six related families that occupied the mansion. The second son of Italian immigrants, he grew up in Westport, Connecticut. After receiving a bachelor's degree in business administration from the University of Bridgeport he began his career marketing and installing accounting computers for the Burroughs Corporation. Twenty-one years later he started his own computer business in 1987. Today Carl lives with his wife Susan in Fairfield, Connecticut. He has three children, two stepchildren, and 12 grandchildren. His nickname, Tuchy, comes from having been one of three Carls in his family. There was a "Big Carl," a "Carl the Twin," and "Carluch," which meant "Little Carl." "Carluch" evolved into "Carlatuch," "Tuch," and finally, "Tuchy."

I originally got Relationship Magic to read for the relationship advice, but ended up using it to journal with. The book includes a space on each page for you to write down notes and thoughts as you go through the sections and read quotes, but I generally do not like books that ask you to jot down stuff as you go.

In this case though, I loved that the section was included and it is actually the first time I have ever filled in a self help or motivational book.

Relationship advice is given over several different aspects of your relationship with a spouse, lover, friend, family, co workers and just about every person you come in contact with. Fitting quotes are included that get you thinking about how you view and maintain the relationships you are in.

I used both the quotes and the advice as journaling prompts and was amazed at how much I had to write on each topic. It definitely gave me plenty to think about and reflect on in my own relationships. Another great thing about this book is the wide range of topics it covers, so you can flip open to any page and use that information or go on to find other advice that is relevant to you.

If you love to journal or know someone who does, this book is perfect.

I have read quite a few books by Tuchy and am well aware of the space he consistenly provides for your thoughts. This is no different in that aspect except that this book truly warrants a need for that space. I was surprised by the amount I wrote down just from what came to me after reading the various quotes, sayings and adages. I enjoyed the variety of the relationships discussed and addressed in this book as I think m any are often overlooked in our life. Many times I found the items in the book so interesting I wrote additional stuff outside of the book because it had my brain reeling. Great book for reflection.

This is a great collection of thought provoking quotes and sayings about relationships.

The magic is not in the collection. The magic comes from you giving sufficient thought to the quotes to understand the full meaning. The magic will only come when you use the quotes to do some self-reflection.

Here is a good example of what I mean. "Make yourself a better person and know who you are before you try to know someone else and expect them to know you." This requires some deep thought and introspection. It is very difficult for us to know ourselves. Philosophers have been telling us that for ages. But still we are afraid to look deep into the mirror and see who we really are.

The book has much value as a collection of quotes. However to get the full value, you need to put some real thought into the quotes. Study them. Understand them on a deeper level.

Here is another one: "It is easier to tie the knot than to untie it." That seem obvious, yet everyday plenty of people tie the knot without really knowing what they are doing.

Here are some more of my favorites:

"Don't forget to love yourself."

"The person who searches for another without flaws, searches forever."

"The best relationship is one in which your love for each other exceeds your need for each other."

"More often that not, love is not absent, what is absent is communication."

"When you are arguing with a fool, make sure he is not doing the same thing."

"A good marriage often requies a closed mouth and an open mind."

There are plenty of other great quotes and sayings in this little collection. It is left up to the reader to understand these quotes.

Format: Paperback
Relationship Magic by Tuchy Palmieri is a self-help book that gives the reader an opportunity to look at their relationships, guides them through advise for common relationship problems and hopefully allows the reader to have stronger and more fulfilling relationships as a result. While this book may be most helpful for spouses, I believe that it can also help with other relationships and even can allow the reader to sort out their feelings without a specific relationship in mind. The book has a series of quotes as well as whitespace for the reader to takes notes about the material presented by Tuchy. I like these books because there is no timeline attached to the reading. You do not have to feel guilty if during a busy week you did not get any reading done. You are free to stop and take a break, skip chapters that do not seem relevant to you or that you may want to tackle later on. In other words, the readers can proceed at their own paces and seek their own way; which is great. Relationships are very personal and differ between individuals. So it is hard to write a generally applicable book, but I think Tuchy succeeded in doing just that.
I would recommend this book to anyone who is going through a difficult personal time, especially relationship troubles with a spouse. Central to the use of the book is that the reader be honest to themselves and keep an open mind. I think this book will be a great self-help book for people that are not ready for the commitment of counseling.
