From Publishers Weekly
Father Albert's approach, drawn from his counseling experience, is straightforward, well organized and supportive. The seven paths include "building solid foundations," respect, clear expectations, honesty and communication. Readers may get a slight feeling that the Miami-based priest and TV host is telling them what to believe or what is right, rather than giving tools to explore their own approaches to relationships. Some nuggets, however, will help identify a potentially compatible type of person and avoid typical complications. (Jan. 3)

In my family, my father's brother was a priest, and I recall my father questioning the soundness of my uncle's advice on marriage or child rearing with this question: "What does he know about buying shoes for five children?" I can't evaluate the utility of my uncle's advice on these matters, but as a licensed clinical psychologist and psychotherapist for nearly 35 years, I can say that Father Albert has done an exceptional job of delineating the major relationship issues of our times, and of providing time-honored suggestions on how to approach, build and sustain loving relationships.
The best evidence I can present to make my case is my recent experience: Real Life, Real Love: 7 Paths to a Strong and Lasting Relationship was being passed around among family and friends aged 25 to 75. The suggestions that Father Albert puts forth are reasonable, helpful, and hauntingly similar to the advice I have given across my professional desk for many years. For many readers, especially those who respond to intelligent self-help approaches to relationship issues, this is a good, and helpful resource.
