Great ideas lovingly put

My favourite part was the example dialogues, you can hear real love in their voices! I can't wait to start putting these techniques into practice in a new relationship, I think it could help build a strong foundation.

This is the Bible of happy couple relationships

I listened to it in two days, after I hurt the woman of my dreams and she left me. I know how to make it work now. I hope I will get the chance.

Transformational

I came to this book upset and out of ideas. Me and my boyfriend love each other very much but can’t stop arguing over seemingly small things. I could feel affection wilting because our relationship isn’t a safe place anymore and I didn’t know what to do to fix it. Having listened to this book I now feel so full of hope and energy. Harville identified so many things that I have been doing wrong and can easily change. I never realized before that me and my boyfriend have difficulty asking for what we want so unmet needs and frustrations were mounting. Now I have a practical and safe way to communicate my needs to him. I feel like we can turn things around. A must have for a serious relationship.

Brilliant. Insightful. Solution based.

I think this book illustrates how far off the ‘right path’ mainstream society is. This book clarifies a solution based method.

Conscious relating in action

Love this audio with Harville Hendrix.
If you are interested in being in a conscious relationship this audio has a lot to offer.
It explains the underlying dynamics, why, what is happening - is happening... and how to break the spell of the power struggle that seems to be very common in relationships.
It addresses couples and singles alike.
How to bring change to a relationship and how to prepare for a new one.

Every one should read, practice this in life.

We practiced this together and we made it. He passed away 10 years now,and I still feel His love. And love him. It is the most wonderful experience in life to have true love. And by keeping improving myself to be true to my needs and want with clear expression. Made me full with better life today like free bird...with respectful relationship with each one I am in touch with!! Thank you for the books. Because we are here to learn to love and be loved.

Good practical advice you can use

Very informative and inspiring advice that seems to help.

Good audio version specifically made for this format.

Helpful exercises to pause and work through in each chapter. This along with Hold Me Tight is a good choice when in pursuit of relationship help. Both have interesting perspectives and practical help.

Both partners would need to read or listen to either one for it to work; and be willing to have a go.
This book in particular though has left us both feeling like we have something to begin with, rather than just give up in our efforts to save our relationship.
