So, I am visually impaired. I read all ebooks with the black-and-white setting and I also need the text to be relatively large compared to the default setting. I've very, very rarely had a problem with that configuration. Unfortunately, while this particular book displays normally until the end of the disclaimer, that's it. As soon as the first chapter starts, it displays with a single column down the center of the page and it is only one letter wide. If I shrink the text as small as it will go, I can get it to show up a couple of words per line BUT then it is too small for me to read.
The only reason I've bothered ot post a review is in hopes of the authors/publishers seeing it and fixing the formatting. If i can get a redable copy, I'd be happy to write an actual review. Thank you!
Sisters Dr. Maureen E. Hosier and Berta Hosier Conger, both of who studied psychology and have their PhDs, have gathered their thoughts together to create an extremely cohesive and realistic self-help book. Dr. Maureen Hosier stated in this book, her and her sister had several sessions where they didn’t necessarily see eye-to-eye on certain aspects, but were able to collect their thoughts in order to write this non-fiction. It is very clear from this well-written piece that the two put a lot of thought and care in order to reach out to their audience.
The content luckily doesn’t apply to me, but I can see it helping many out there in one-sided relationships. What’s great about this work is that there is this version and another, You’ll Do Anything for Him, to reach out to both genders.
Both sisters claim that much of why one person gives so much to his/her partner with little to no reciprocation is due to the upbringing. Parents, guardians, caretakers who become the dominant one in a relationship tend to teach their children to not share their opinions and thoughts, and therefore teaching those children to potentially hold a similar relationship when a partner is found in the future.
The writing is positive, encouraging, and extremely realistic. The authors don’t give the illusion that even after reading this book, the relationship will be fixed. It takes two to create a healthy relationship and if one doesn’t want to change or adjust, then the relationship may not work out and it is time to move on.
I would recommend this to those who are in or have been in a one-sided relationship and would like a bit of guidance and/or reflection.
For anyone concerned with their current relationship or looking to figure out what went amiss in past ones, You’ll Do Anything For Her are useful texts that may set the foundation for more satisfying future relationships.
The book is well-written, jargon free, and taps into the wishes, hopes,and fantasies of starting a romantic relationship, only to find oneself repeating a style of relating learned in childhood - a "One-Person Relationship" - in which one sacrifices his/her needs and feelings in order to please and not be abandoned by the other.
It not only helps readers identify their pattern of relating and where it evolves from in family dynamics, but it also shows readers how to break out of this maladaptive "One-Person" style of relating and learn to safeguard their sense of self by taking risks to express thoughts and feelings in a "Two-Person" style of relating.
This book does an excellent job of showing readers how to honor their thoughts and feelings while simultaneously listening to and acknowledging the thoughts and feelings of their partners. It also advises readers on what to do when their partners are incapable of respecting their thoughts and feelings.
I highly recommend this book to anyone struggling to be heard in a relationship. It is the perfect book for all therapists to have on their bookshelves to give to clients.
I loved this book! Its words read like having a conversation with a wise friend who has your best interest at heart. The book addresses the fundamental issues that go wrong in a relationship, and this applies to romantic relationships but it can also apply to any relationships, including friendships and family dynamic.
The best part is that you get to reflect and consider what doesn't work, and what you can do differently so a relationship can be healthy, productive and loving. I highly recommend this to anyone in a relationship. I certainly recommended it to my friends.
