Good advice, but bad examples.
on November 9, 2012
I bought this book when I was looking for advice on better relationships. This has a psychological perspective to building relationships and does a nice job giving one perspective on new ways to look at your relationships through visual diagrams and surveys. However, some of the examples came off as blatantly sexist, especially the example with a woman who tells her husband to stop wasting their money. It was trying to demonstrate standing up for oneself, but when it concludes with "now she is free from oppressive male authority" it just comes off as sexist.
She really does have good advice on relationships, but if examples like the one above would offend you and stop you from furthering your reading then perhaps looking somewhere else might be best.
