Love this book. I first learned of this book while in couple's therapy with my spouse and have given copies to many friends and family having problems in their relationship. It is really useful to help find the root of what is causing communication difficulties in a relationship, and working through them,or at least being more aware of why we react the way we do that may or may not be directly related to your current relationship.
