The man writes from the heart and from heartfelt experience. It takes an amazing person to own his relationship mistakes, learn from them, and then expose those mistakes for the benefit of others. Tom Fiffer writes as though each and every one of his readers was a dear friend needing the kind of advice that comes from honestly baring your soul to a friend and admitting “Hey, I know what you’re going through. I’ve made my mistakes, and this is what I’ve learned.” Then he generously sets it all before us in stories and checklists infused with wisdom, inspiration, and wit. And, let's face it, sometimes you have to laugh so you don't cry. Buy the book. But be sure to give yourself enough time to read it, because the river here runs deep.
I had hoped for more from a Yale grad having gone to U of I for grad school !
He is not a psychiatrist or a psychologist or a pysch counselor and after reading his writing I had a good sense of why his several marriages had failed
The writing flailed with his sense of self importance to such an extent that I could not even finish the small book that this book is !
I like the conversational style, as if he and the reader are sitting across a table from each other and sharing thoughts, without just venting, but attempting to find meaning in the muck. I appreciate that, as a man, he has the courage to admit that he was abused. Not every man is willing to do that, so, in a sense, he speaks for those who aren't able or willing to speak for themselves.
A gem of a book that will help the reader steer clear of dysfunctional relationships as well. You deserve it, as do your future relationship partners.
One thing that jumps out, is that there are no absolutes. I recognized some signs in my own paradoxical marriage, but no one is ever or never one thing or another. There were times when both of us took on roles of judge, jury and prosecuting attorney, good guy and bad guy.
