"Dr. Doherty presents a unique and impassioned analysis of how our consumer culture erodes our dream of having the lasting union that we want so much. His practical suggestions for rituals that restore love and commitment are immediately applicable and alone are worth the price of admission. My son said, 'This book changed my life!' I suspect you, the reader, will say the same."--Harriet Lerner, PhD, author of Marriage Rules: A Manual for the Married and the Coupled Up
"I love this book--it's a real eye-opener. Dr. Doherty shows how many of us ignore and take for granted what can be the most important aspects of our lives. Take Back Your Marriage teaches us how to prevent circumstances (or kids, work, community, in-laws) from hijacking our precious love lives without our consent."--John M. Gottman, PhD, author of What Makes Love Last?
"With his usual pragmatic good sense and down-to-earth wisdom, Dr. Doherty reassures us that we can face the 'core challenge of our time'--how to make a loving, long-term marriage work. He lays out an intentional path to lasting love with elegance and persuasiveness. This is a message that we all need to hear."--Sue Johnson, EdD, author of Hold Me Tight: Seven Conversations for a Lifetime of Love
"This book offers wise and timely advice on marriage from one of America's favorite therapists."--Mary Pipher, PhD, author of Reviving Ophelia and Another Country

I highly recommend this to anyone who is married, or planning to get married.
That being said, I have loved the professional advice and counsel given by Dr. William J. Doherty. His writing style is captivating, and it is obvious that his experience is extensive. He frequently uses stories and examples to illustrate his theories, all of which spark ideas in the reader. One of the most valuable aspects in any self-help literature is the author’s ability to enable the reader to think about things in a different way, and perhaps to examine their lives through a new lens and from a different perspective. ‘Taking back your marriage’ is one of those books. It is full of fantastic ideas, and Dr. Doherty’s enthusiasm for his spouse and marriage is contagious. You will learn about a wide variety of beneficial skills throughout your reading, and, if you’re anything like me, you might even be inclined to try a few of them out.
I would recommend this book to those struggling to reconcile rogue thoughts and actions in their marriages, that wish to remap their thinking and acting to match their desire to be the man or woman of their spouse’s dreams.
