1.0 out of 5 stars Rambling, January 21, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I was not impressed with this book. I found the information to be rambling and the examples did not particularly support the conclusions they were paired with. I have read quite a few relationship books lately and this was one of my least favorite. It seemed primarily like an apology for blaming men for all the relationship problems in their first book so they were trying to even the score. Not recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Recommend, insightful and practical, October 30, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Of late I have become a self help book junky. Each book references another, which led me to this. I was surprised that the women's section was a short as it was, but it was packed with hands on, doable, practical actions that a woman can take to interact with an emotionally distant man. Patti has created a guide for a couple to heal each other while also healing themselves.

Some of the actions, in my case those for the emotionally incested man, seemed too easy, too good to be true. But they seem to work! In fact, my husband started using some of the 'catch phrases' I was using with him, and I also felt this sense of lightness and willingness to open up! Patti doesn't pander to the victim or martyr, nor does she place blame, but she stresses accountability for each person's half of the relationship equation. She gives actions a woman can perform to feel empowered for herself and for her relationship without being manipulative or controlling or enabling.

The men's side follows the same pattern to creating a dawning comprehension of why the men react the way they do, while offering empowering suggestions and yet holding men accountable for their half of the relationship, and their ability to heal their partner. My husband has been reading avidly and doesn't feel preached to, or attacked, or like he wants to shut down. Instead, he feels like he wants to act, and make things better, and I have seen a real difference in the short time I have applied my half, and he has been reading his.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who feels a real distance from their husband, especially if they have addictive behaviors or serious inability to communicate or give emotionally. If both of you have any real desire to improve the relationship, this book can really help.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sci Fi At Its Best, March 3, 2007

This review is from: The Language of Power (Paperback)
This is truly a science fiction. Ms. Kirstein's imagery is very keen, with characters you can care about even while you might wish them dead. She has a great understanding of human interaction, the realities of terraforming, and keeping a social science fiction still very hard and reality based. She has woven in themes of life and love and intrigue and action and adventure into a very fine tapestry which draws you in and truly involves you. I appreciate that she has not fallen in with the use of gimmickry to get humans where they are, or that a science fiction is used as the gimmick to write a fantasy. For those who want a real science fiction, I highly recommend this series.

Warning: if you have not read the previous books, some spoilers to the overall plot line of the previous books follow:

This series explores the complexities and immense lengths of time involed in humans terraforming a new planet. The stories are set in a time period when the purposes of various groups who were working together to create a human friendly world have forgotten their original heritage, and thus function has devolved into tradition. By the time of this book, we can recognize that the steerwomen's role has been to chart new territory as it is claimed, while keeping the knowledge and intellect of science alive and open to all citizens. The Outskirters expand the human territory by destroying all native lifeforms without recalling what this contributes to the long term goals of the terraforming project. Technology, however, has been withheld by those now called wizards, until it becomes mystical and secret, and even the wizards are unclear as to their original role in the greater scheme. As with all human endeavors, cooperation has been subverted by the too common motives of greed and power in the face of survival. Her quest for Slado the wizard continues, and Rowan finds that magic is not so far from her own knowledge as she once thought.
