Product Description


Everyone says, 'You have to let go and move on.' This book actually shows you how to do it. (Jane Seymour, Star of Wedding Crashers and Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman, and James Keach, Producer of Walk The Line)

Moving On is required reading for my class, Getting Love Right: Romantic Relationships in Contemporary Society. It helps my students understand how nonaddressed and incomplete relationship problems always repeat, and how to avoid the pitfalls of carrying their incomplete pasts into their romantic future. (Bernard McGrane, Ph.D., professor of sociology, Chapman University)

The relationship tools we have learned from Russell and John have deepened our love for one another as well as having profoundly enriched our marriage. All we can say is a very heartfelt “thank you” to them and a strong recommendation to anyone interested in having love in their lives to read this book. (Kathleen Silver, senior VP, real estate, and Geoffrey Silver, Ph.D., economist, Beverly Hills, CA)

Friedman and James are in the life-changing business. Are you ready for your life to be changed? Take this book home and read it. (Roy H. Williams, author of People Stories; Inside the Outside and The Wizard of Ads trilogy)

Some people think about changing, some people talk about changing, and there are those who actually take actions that lead to better results. If you’re in that last category, Moving On spells out the actions that will help you change. (Dave Lakhani, author of Persuasion: The Art of Getting What You Want and The Power of an Hour)

By adulthood, most people are experts at hiding their pain, even from themselves. Instead of dealing with it properly, they drag it from one relationship to the next. Friedman and James dispel those misguided notions, and give compassionate but firm instructions for uncovering and "completing" what they call "unfinished emotional business. (Kristin Taveira Newsday)

Format: Paperback
When I was dealing with my situation, I went out and ordered 4 self help books. This is one of them and it is honestly the best one. There's no easy way to heal yourself, but if you truly want to make yourself a better person, not repeat your mistakes and truly learn to live and love, then this is the book hands down.

I learned so much by reading and doing the exercises of this book. You'll look back and reflect not only on the relationship that hurt you the most, but ALL of your significant relationships, and you will see a pattern unfold before you.

Ignore the Pink Cover. It's Not as Girlie as It Looks. Sept. 8 2006
By R. Williams - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Think about it. It's really not that hard. Would you rather live the rest of your life with a smile on your face and a spring in your step or do you want to continue suffering silently because you're a guy and that's what guys do?

Seriously. Do you want to stumble through life with that unhealed hole in your chest?

If the smile and the spring sound good, let Friedman and James teach you how to once and for all put that old relationship behind you. It's a process. They'll walk you through it.

No meetings to attend.

No awkward moments.

No one will ever know.

Just when I thought I had completed everything! Dec 2 2006
By Michelle Hollinshead - Published on
Format: Paperback
Wow, I must say that I did not expect to discover anything new in regards to past Romantic relationships. I say that because I've actually done a lot of Grief work over the last 3 years since being introduced to The Grief Recovery Outreach Program & Institute. I'd been waiting for their relationship book to come out. I was eager to read it just so that I could refer others to it that may not have seen any other reason to even consider unresolved grief. To my surprise I discovered more things that I personally needed to complete. All I can say is that this is not just another relationship book. It's truly a step by step guide to finishing unresolved and unfinished emotional business that can keep one stuck in the past and unable to move forward. This systematic approach is truly liberating. Thank you Russell and John.

Happy Holidays,

Keep the best leave the rest Oct. 13 2006
By Jane Pahr - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book has helped me move on while maintaining/remembering what I loved so as not to lose the best parts but rather to complete them so that it's all a part of me and my life experience. My heart was broken when my marriage ended even though I was clear that it had to. I wondered why, and even more, I wondered what I had done wrong. "Moving On" gave me the tools to heal and as a result, my heart opened even more. The exercises helped me clean up the debris, in which was hidden the shrapnel that continued to wound me afterwards. I also became clear that it's not about understanding What happened or who's wrong or right, but getting complete with the past so I can live in present time. To be honest, I won't say that I'm glad that I had to use this book, but I'm sure glad I found it. If you're reading this it's my guess you will be too.

Didn't really work for me April 12 2011
By JustMe - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I read the whole book in three days and I must admit I did the exercises in my mind rather then on paper.I have to say I think this book is for someone that has gone through a breakup and is over that initial heartbreak. I actually felt like the book made my heart ache get worse because it made me think of all the good times we had together. I'm not saying it's not a good book but it's probably a book that I should read after I'm at least over the person I'm in love with and I can think about them without getting too emotional. If your breakup is recent and u are looking for a book to make u feel better then this is not the book in my opinion. If you are over the initial hurting phase and are looking for a book to help you not make the same mistakes and improve future relationships then this a good book to have.

Stop Watering Plastic Flowers! Oct. 18 2006
By J. Chaplain - Published on
Format: Paperback
WOW!!! It's ALL between the covers of this little jewel...THE WHOLE PACKAGE in a readable, doable, no psycho-babble, ANTIDOTE to relationship failure. The folks who wrote the definitive resource on Grief Recovery have hit a Home Run in the relationship department. This book moves way past in-formation and offers trans-formation to all who are willing to stop watering plastic flowers.

As a pastor, I believe this book should be a required text/process for ALL pre-marriage counseling.

This clear and complete approach offers real hope to all who have been longing and searching for a life-long romantic relationship, but have missed the mark. The action steps in this book WILL help participants identify and unpack the emotional baggage that sabotages relationships, but more importantly, it gives clear and simple (not necessarily easy) steps to change the habits that poison future relationships. Healing your broken heart is a nice little 'ADDED BONUS' of this process.

In this GROUND BREAKING book, Friedman and James show you how to quit doing what you've always done so you can quit getting what you've always got!

Five Stars aren't nearly enough to convey the value of this MASTERPIECE!!!!
