Editorial Reviews


“...clearly points the way to satisfying and lasting intimacy... filled with wise and rational alternatives... easy-to-follow... a gem.”
Arnold A. Lazarus, PhD, ABPP, Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Psychology, Rutgers University

“This is a down-to-earth book that reflects much practical wisdom about intimate communication. It will be useful to practitioners and clients alike. I recommend it highly.”
Michael Mahoney, PhD, author of Human Change Processes and Constructive Psychotherapy

“A breath of fresh air... Seven simple guidelines to improving interpersonal communication—New, easy to apply and fun to follow.”
Cyril M. Franks, PhD, Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Psychology, Graduate School, Rutgers University

“Dr. Ellis cuts right to the heart of the human problem—our inability to get along with the people in our lives because we expect too much of them and perhaps not enough of ourselves... This is a book for people who have spent a lifetime messing up their relationships with other people... I recommend it very, very strongly for anyone with any difficulty at all getting along with anyone else and that means, literally, everyone.”
William Glasser, MD, author of Reality Therapy in Action

“...of interest to all who labor in the field of marriage counseling... seven basic guidelines that all in this field should consider in the attempt to generate happy relations between couples married and not married.”
Raymond Corsini, PhD, editor of Current Psychotherapies and Handbook for Innovative Psychotherapies

“...I would recommend this book ‘off the shelf’ to anyone looking for help in making emotional changes in their life but it would be of particular benefit for therapists or counselors as a reference book for clients... I... had to wrestle it from the hands of my 84 year old father-in-law!”
Robert Armstrong, The Nasap Newsletter, The North American Society of Adlerian Psychology
