This is a very hard book to grasp if you are having the problems that are in it. I read it and now have to re-read it again. The truth can hurt and there is alot of truth in this book.

I would also recommend having a therapist or someone who can talk to you and help you with it.

I have benefited from the Internal Family Ssystems because they complement my therapy and help me remove sad memories and blockages in my path to greater happiness. Being able to hold the book in my hands and read the paragraphs again and again has helped to go deeper inside me and to understand how therapy works.

This book should be required reading for anyone wanting to have an intimate relationship.

Dick Schwartz unveils the underlying reasons why intimate relationships so often fail and gives concrete suggestions what we can do to remedy them. As suggested by other reviewers, read this book slowly... if you're in pain from a challenging relationship this book will uncover a lot, and each page is a gold mine. I have had the good fortune of working with dedicated IFS therapists and am so amazed at how quickly they are able to connect with the deep-rooted parts of my psyche and quickly undo the suffering those parts have amassed over the years they were submerged.

This is a truly phenomenal book about working with one's own and one's partner's inner parts. While the place to get it is selfleadership.org, which has it at $25, it's great that it's listed on Amazon too.

If you want to understand how you actually "work" emotionally, and untangle your interactions with others, you won't find any better book.

Priceless!

I'm a psychotherapist and recommend this book to almost everyone I work with -- couples and individuals alike. It goes much deeper than the typical "communication tips" books for couples and helps people develop compassion for their own reactions and those of their partners. It also helps people understand why they pick the partners they do.

Not sure why the price varies so wildly on Amazon. Sometimes people say it's listed for $90!!! It is available from the Center for Self Leadership bookstore for $25.

This book beautifully navigates the ability to not only communicate with and understand the many parts of an individual's internal experience, but also gives valuable insight and guidance as to how to then incorporate this process within the context of intimate partner distress. The book is well written, flows nicely, and is an excellent resource for both the therapist and for the client/relationship. The additional case study examples add depth to the therapist's ability to further navigate the greater systemic work between couples. It is one of the most powerful and insightful reads I have ever encountered and will most definitely be integrated within my work with both individuals and couples.
