This was an awesome book about empathy. My family concluded that empathy has many levels. If all three steps are used, I feel empathy is shown on a deep level and there is more understanding between the relationship.

I am always skeptical of books that claim to be the definitive guide to anything, particularly things related to psychology or relationships (the one exception being the DSM IV). So when I read that the editors believe this book holds “the secret” to a better marriage, I wasn’t buying it. But after reading it, I can say (without a hint of skepticism) that it actually works, and the difference is immediate.

The secret share is empathy, the ability to experience things the way another person does.

Three stars for the book itself. It gets an additional star for the extra materials and resources.

This is a very comprehensive book written by a great married couple who has lots of wisdom and ministers to different married couples through their many wonderful books. I have read a few of them. They are all insightful, helpful and full of helpful tips for couples. This book is no exception. It really gave me practical advice to empathize with my spouse. An easy and great read.

Short and quick read. I thought the illustrations were good and memorable and taught great points. It made me aware of what empathy is, how to develop it, and how it could benefit my marriage.
