I purchased this book in error as a friend had suggested a book by a similar name, however when she was recalling the name of the book she got the name wrong and suggested this one by accident.I did enjoy most of the content of the book however I found that it had too many religious references to Jesus and the Apostles and their various stories.I am not familiar with the Author and had I known that the content had religious references as a way of explaining the various scenarios outlined in the book I would not have purchased it.
I liked hearing about the various ways to communicate the same thing but come across differently.
I am not familiar with the Author
I would not be interested, there are references to other books by the same Author mentioned in this book that cover some areas in more depth but I would not be interested.
The description gives no reference that various religious books and stories are used as a way to explain and elaborate the various questions and scenarios.

"I liked it! "
Listened in my car on my way to and from work.
Very helpfull. Although fast pace. Wish I could of wrote it down. But how could I, I was driving.
I always listen to Cloud/Townsend at least twice or get the book. The tools and strategies are helpful for every day life.
As always Henry Cloud and John Townsend have clear, specific advice which is easy to understand and follow through. Developing the tools outlined make for an easier, less stressful life.
Very basic commonsense stuff. Unfortunately also contained constant and totally pointless and irritating references to God and Jesus.
