This book challenges a person to do what they might otherwise shy away from in the midst of a crisis in a relationship - specifically marriage, but it applies to any relationship. It's easier to avoid confrontations or standing strong because of fear. What it's really about is not letting bad behavior continue. I wish I'd read this many years sooner, but am grateful to have read it now. I've never been disappointed by any of Dr. Dobson's books and would recommend this in a heartbeat.
This book is awesome. I purchased this book from Barnes and Noble in Fargo, ND right after Hurricane Katrina. I gave it to a friend to read and never got it back. "Well, you know how that is" I came back home to New Orleans in 6/2006 and tried to purchase this book and was told they no longer printed this book. I was very disappointed. I would encourage anyone who is having a difficult time in a relationship to read this book. It will boost your self-esteem. You will not have to wonder how to handle tough times in your marriage/ relationships. This is a great book.
You have to purchase and read the book. I just cannot tell you everything.
I was very excited to read this book, but the format I am forced to read it on is hard to use, doesn't scroll through very easily, and it's pretty crazy that I have to log in every time I want to read this book. The format made the book not worth the price I paid.
I got this book due to a recent problem with my spouse. It was recommended by probe.com so I thought I should read it. It reinforced things I already knew about confronting your spouse but unfortunately the approach didn't really work for me. Unless your spouse is a believer, it may not be worth trying.
