Format: Paperback
I have been recommending this book to friends and colleagues who are struggling with family issues. It is easy to read, and yet raises very relevant and practical questions. This is the perfect bridge between the most powerful academic ideas, and practical steps for anyone to take to understand themselves, and create better relationships with their family.
There are many cases presented in the book that can help you see that what you're experiencing is common, and can be worked through. The underlying structure of the book is very solid--based on Friedman's emotional systems stuff. There is a part at the end on how to research and learn from your family history, going back several generations.
Finally, there is a fun chapter on family position. I think it is meant to be general, and taken with a grain of salt. Having said that, I've found the research on the link between family position and couple compatibility to be very interesting.
If you like this book and want more depth, read "Generation to Generation" by Edwin Friedman.

Format: Paperback
Easy read and introduction to Bowenian Family Systems theory. Interesting and BRIEF. Good if you want to have a foundation and basic understanding of the theory.

Format: Paperback
This is an easy to understand, user-friendly map for self-help in family relations. Based on Bowen Family Systems Therapy, it supports the reader to explore family roots and patterns, to identify and practice alternatives, in interesting and easy to manage steps that can contribute greatly to individual and family health. I've been using it myself and lending it to friends for years. It still works.
