    Jim Groah
    I believe this book to be one of the best "how to" books on communications I have ever read. The reading is easy and yet the principles discussed are incredibly deep. I have purchased this book for 4 of my friends, as well as, the ElderBoard of our church. If we only utilize several of the recommendationsmade in this book, our marriages, family, church relationshipsand friendships will be powerfully impacted.

    Chaplain Ralph E. Molyneux
    As a chaplain and pastor, this book and materials from CPREP have revolutionized my marriage counseling. This is one of the top five books on marriage relationships I have encountered. Since the book presents "how to" information on cummunication, constructive disagreements, and working through the challenges marriage, it is by far the most valuable tool for newlyweds I have encountered.
