Top critical review
much like a long-winded academic article
on November 17, 2016
After reading the positive reviews, I was hoping to find a book with applicable lessons and healthy challenges for strengthening marriage. Instead, I found a text heavily concerned with name dropping to support its findings, much like a long-winded academic article. When applicable lessons finally emerged, they were in the format of quoting/paraphrasing dialogue from couples that the authors had counseled. I had little patience for what seemed like excerpts from dysfunctional plays. After hanging in for 100+ pages, I decided to throw the book into our outgoing donation box. Perhaps someone else will find it more helpful.
