This book is great for anyone in any relationship because as he states, he has dealt with so many scenarios in his practice. He found that most issues within relationships can be dealt in the same fashion. This is because most issues are the same once we strip away the details. Honestly, it was a pleasure and soothing to read this book. As I stated above, I also bought the audibook, so it was so comforting to hear someone explain my emotions and how to accept and grow intellectually in a positive manner and then to see and feel that from those around recognizing it. Not only did my wife, daughters, and family benefit from this, but I also see immediate reactions from friends when I speak now. This book is priceless and I hope someday to be able to repay the real value of this book to the author.
The author also has a forum on his website and I clearly saw that he takes time to respond. But then the author completely surpassed all expectations. I visited the forum to ask a question. Not only did he respond and carry a discussion with me via email but he even offered to speak on the phone.
I can't describe enough how grateful I am to you - Dr. Joseph J. Luciani. I am a better person and all my relationships now carry your wisdom within them. Thank you for sharing it with us!
I was so taken in... Not surprised as I have read DR Joe's previous books and have used them as a tool in my day to day...
This book offer the self coaching component that works wonders....
I also find his analogies very interesting.... For example, " Humans are like computers!" To bad we can't simply just delete the cookies....
There are also many quizzes in the book that give you a benchmark as to where you & your partner are at on many levels...
If you are serious about saving your relationship and saving yourself... I recommend this book.
Thank you DR Joe...
