Summary

Your personal guide to learning how to love.

When you say or hear the words "I love you", it can change your life forever. Love is one of God's most important gifts to anyone, yet there are many misunderstandings about how to make love work in our families, friendships, marriages, and dating relationships. 

In Loving People, best-selling author Dr. John Townsend teaches you that love can actually be learned and gives you the steps and tools to become skilled in love. Using his trademark stories to flesh out the important principles, Dr. Townsend covers receiving love, connecting love, healing love, confronting love, romantic love, and surrendering love. Through his teaching, listeners will discover - and start enjoying - the words, actions, and experiences of authentic love.

Good Nuggets With Long Delivery

This was my first experience with a Dr. Townsend book. I knew of his work with Boundaries as the book was recommended by a lot of people as a great resource working with youth. I decided to give this one a try as I was in the middle of preparing a sermon about loving our neighbors.
There were some great insights with ideas on how to love people more effectively. What really got me was this seemed to be a group of stories about how Dr. Townsend had a therapy session with this one person and this is how we worked through the situation. The formula became a little stale as the book went on. I got to the point where I really didn't want to finish the book as it was becoming story, how I fixed it, what happened repetitively.
Recommended for those who are looking at becoming more loving in their lives who need stories to help them along the path.

Very insightful

Contains a lot of useful information about how to love and to improve your relationships with other people. It really managed to show me things about human behavior I had not considered.

My only minor issue is that many things are explained in kind of a "list" format which leads me to wonder if I may have been better off getting the physical book. However this can be solved by simply taking notes which is what I did. Perhaps they should include a pdf of this lists with this book.
