Sadly, it came a little too late to help my relationship. I honestly, sadly, had no clue that what I was doing in my relationship was pushing my boyfriend further and further away.
I grew up with crappy role models for romantic relationships and have been trying to teach myself for the past 3 years. This book is a god send and has really opened up my eyes on how I can be a better partner. No one ever told me that my SO's feelings and emotions are something I need to care for and honor beside my own heart.
I love the quote of "honoring the 3rd being" (you, them and the relationship youv'e created)
This book weaves a lot of philosophical and spiritual elements, and I was blown away after reading it. It is a dense, thoughtful text, that requires a degree of insight and openness to be able to digest and absorb the messages. However, if you are willing to do the work, I think the payoff is extraordinary. It is a necessary investment in yourself - I wish more people would read this book. Now I am able to see that my partner's departure was the catalyst I needed in order to expose the needs I have inside me. I am absolutely confident that as a result of the insight and mindfulness that the author suggests, coupled with daily practice of self-awareness, and self-nurturance, I am moving towards meeting my soulmate and "adult love" in this life.

I saw the reviews that criticized the book for being wordy and over the heads of regular people. Well, I guess people that need something super easy to read have a lot of other books out there that serve them. For me personally, this book gave a higher and more satisfying level of information than was available elsewhere. I found the writing to be quite simple and straightforward, and did not encounter a single word that I didn't know. The ideas that were presented within these simple words, however, were big. I did not encounter the usual frustration that I find with books that are so focused on faddish, simplistic theories that they just aren't helpful. Many books out there seem to frame everything through the lens of some specific trendy disorder, addiction, or whatever, failing to grasp the larger picture. This one is more universal in its appeal. I might have liked it even better if it were a little more challenging, but I see that you can't please everyone.
