About the Author
Attorney Loomis is a semi-retired trial and appellate lawyer, as well as an ex-corporate executive. His legal experience runs the gamut from murder trials to appeals as high as to The United States Supreme Court. In the business world, he has spent some twenty-nine years dealing with people while running three corporations.
He is an alumnus of Northwestern University, and the University of Notre Dame where he received his doctorate. But his wisdom about interrelating with people is not based on academic considerations. Rather, it comes from years of dealing with people in business, legal, and family worlds.
Thus, he doesn't write and teach like he's in front of a blackboard lecturing about complex theories. That's the approach that many writers take in this area. Often their backgrounds are limited to classrooms or consultation rooms. As a result, their works are technical, academic mumbo-jumbo that bores readers.
In contrast, Attorney Loomis writes in a way that you don't have to be an academic to understand. He talks plainly about close relationships and how to improve them. The things he suggests are practical, easy to grasp, and apply.
And he is eminently qualified to help people in this area. This is because his expertise is the best type of all, practical experience in dealing with thousands of people. He has learned what he teaches the hard way, by trial and error.
His special knowledge stems from his relations with the hundreds of employees and co-workers that he has trained. And it also evolves from his dealings with clients, jurors, judges, attorneys, witnesses, legislators, business associates and the seven children that he has raised.
Thus, his vast experience in real world settings has given him a grass-roots-practical know-how about close relationships. His teachings are not abstract theories learned from textbooks. Rather, they are down-to-earth-practical suggestions applicable to everyday situations. They can help anyone, regardless of educational level.
So, that's Attorney Loomis' background. And you can see why it makes him uniquely qualified in a most practical way, to write about this critically important subject. And persons who follow his counsel can take a gigantic step toward improving their relationships with the persons most important to them.

Its really a shame that this book does not get enough press. This world would be a better place if everyone followed the principles outlined here. Its also concise and easy to read so many many audiences would appreciate it. I say pick it up today.
While all of this may sound intuitive and perhaps inevitable in this age of snap analysis, flippant humor and above all, the mad rush to instant everything it is altogether another thing to be guided through this by the author.
I came to two conclusions:
a) I want to do take this book to heart and work on my style. While I might be getting the point across in most discourse, I may be making things worse rather than better sometimes by the way I say things.
b) The author is clearly a wise man with a keen insight and understanding into human psychology as well as manners. In some ways this is a throwback to a more genteel age, but in fact the book is extremely relevant for today.
Reading this book can only help you!
If you follow only half the suggestions in this book, people will be responding to you more positively right away. Follow all the suggestions, and folks will think you are a charming and friendly person.
Dale Carnegie wrote "How to Win Friends and Influence People" back in the 20s or 30s. It was an excellent book. But times have changed. People have changed. Our society and culture have changed. "How to Improve Your Relationships, Dramatically: Methods that Really Work" is the book that gives you the lessons, examples, and full explanations of of the methods to help you become a person that can enter into a relationship and understand the dynamics that could cause it to go wrong.
Read the book. Take it's lessons to heart. I'm glad I did. I know you'll be glad you did, too.
