—Mark Nepo, author of Seven Thousand Ways To Listen and The Book of Awakening
"There is wisdom and power in this remarkable exploration of emotional intimacy. The author journeys into unexpected regions of the human heart and with rare discernment explores the dark and light of that which allows for a new order of coming together."
—Jean Houston, PhD, author of The Search for the Beloved
"From the moment I opened Emotional Intimacy and treated myself to a long look at - better to say "drink of" -its contents, something in my heart and whole being relaxed and released. I knew I was in the presence of one of the most precise analyses and deeply comforting (which means, strength-giving) contemplations of human emotion ever written, any time, anywhere, by anyone. Over half a million books are now published every year. Very few deserve reading by many of us. Hardly any should be read, imbibed, deeply absorbed and used by just about every adult and most teenagers on the planet. This is one of them. I'm a fairly well respected teacher of such things myself, and I'm marveling at it. I intend to go to school in this masterwork by Robert Augustus Masters for a very long time to come. I can hardly praise it, and thank Robert, enough."
—Saniel Bonder, co-founder, Waking Down, and author of Ultimaya 1.0: The Trouble with the Wishes of Leopold Stokes
—Christiane Northrup, MD, author of the New York Times bestsellers Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom and The Wisdom of Menopause
"This is one of the best books on human emotion I've read. What I particularly like about it is its practicality. Dr. Masters has obviously done his fair share of work on his own relationships; his insights and suggestions show the signs of one who has been there in the heat of action.”
—Gay Hendricks, PhD, author of The Big Leap and co-author of Conscious Loving with Dr. Kathlyn Hendricks
“Emotional Intimacy sets out a perfectly clear and accurate map of the all-too-often confused dimension of our emotional territory, and the result is everything you could ever want from a book on this topic: it is concise, useful, beautifully succinct, exquisitely well-executed, and a deeply joyful book to read. I highly recommend this book for professional and laypeople alike—it has something deeply important to offer each—and you won’t regret it!”
—Ken Wilber, Integral philosopher and author of A Brief History of Everything
"This remarkably helpful, lucidly written book provides an exceptional road map on how to work creatively and constructively with all of our emotions. I was particularly impressed by Masters' emphasis on intimacy throughout the book, including the art of developing intimacy with each of our emotions. For those of us who wish to deepen our capacity for emotional intimacy with another human being, Masters' offering is a beautiful place to begin.”
—Katherine Woodward Thomas, author of Calling in “The One”
“In Emotional Intimacy, Robert Masters offers a primer on emotions—from the most primary to the most subtle. Whether you are currently in a relationship or wish to be in one, this is a very worthwhile book to pick up and select a chapter from which to taste, digest, transform, and heal. As a couples’ therapist, I will definitely recommend this book to my clients.”
—Stan Tatkin, PsyD, MFT, author of Wired for Love

I'd highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn more about him or herself or about emotional intelligence, or who gets into frequent arguments/has relationship issues. It provides an excellent outlook and interesting information on human emotions, surprisingly simple suggestions on how to learn more about oneself, emotionally and how to connect with others (and not cheesy or too touchy-feely, either... neither my husband nor I was raised in an emotionally open family, and this book did not offer suggestions that were too far fetched for us to attempt).
