If you're truly prepared to look at yourself, this book is invaluable. I explains how and why you act and react the way you do and how to go about changing things. It's laid our very well and leads you step by step in examining what makes you 'tick'. My husband and I were having a lot of difficulty in communicating and it gave us valuable insight as to why and what to do to change it. Along with the workbook, it leads you to a greater understanding and empathy towards yourself and partner. I truly believe it saved our marriage!

Can`t put this book down. It gave me such an incredible insight to problems people have and the reasons behind them. It really is an important read to improve a spiritual journey with our partners. I wish I had picked it up on time, when I was still in a relationship... :(

This is a wonderful book, and should be mandatory reading for anyone in a relationship or thinking about one. It provides valuable insights into basic human behavior, as well as practical tools for improving communication, deepening understanding and creating greater intimacy. Reading this book changed all of my relationships dramatically. It improved my familial relationships, romantic relationships, and probably most importantly my relationship with myself. If you want better relationships, this is a must read!

My partner and I read this book and attempted to use it to save our relationship. It failed, but it's okay. I think the book still worked...

The mental exercises the authors have you go through are very interesting and very revealing of some of the sources of one's subconscious or "old brain" habits. My partner and I did them all but we did not commit to some of the primary promises i.e. - agree to not divorce until you've tried the romance-habits for 4-6 weeks. BUT what they never really give you in the book is the option to "break up", and sometimes that's exactly what should happen. I believe two people can still love each other and not be able to continue on the same path. An end is just a new beginning after all.

This book helped me realize what I want out of a relationship, and why I feel shame when the dishes aren't done. My (now ex) partner complained there was too much Christian overtones. I thought it was more Freudian than anything. But that doesn't matter now: I read what I want, when I want, and I don't have to feel bad about anything because I AM MY OWN MAN!

You should try it.

Good tips on how to communicate and good intro chapter on how we fall in love and why.
It has helped me grow considerably. Wish I had read it years ago, this is like a must read manual for love.

Harville Hendrix's book provided me with useful analytical tools that have helped me better understand why my partner and I are how we are in our marriage. It has been an intellectually enriching read. The book sometimes ventures into more philosophical territory which some readers may find hard to relate to (e.g. The references to Martin Buber and "connectedness")
