Seriously, I realize that I am prone to exaggeration but everyone who has in-laws, actually everyone who has family which is not their immediate family should read this book. The suggestions could be used for any issue relating to family conflict and the author's questions that she wants the reader to ask themselves are thought provoking and thoughtful. I enjoyed it so much that I will probably purchase Don't Bite Your Tongue as well. I won this book on Goodreads First Reads giveaway and origina ...more

Excellent book

I'm a mother-in-law seeking to improve my relationship with a daughter-in-law. This book was an easy read. It's good as a help for any in-law relationship. I'll have to see how it works when I try to put the suggestions into practice.
very interesting. well researched and well written. Dr Nemzoff gives many examples of the different situations in-laws find themselves in and gives advice on how to interpret what the other party might be thinking and how to handle many of these difficult interactions.

This is a great book to help anyone who is a mother or father in law, a sister or brother in law or the daughter or son in law.
I received this free book from the good reads giveaways. It is one that makes you look at your own relationships with your in-laws and laugh, or cry, or think the author is talking about you. It was a very good read with some good advise.

Helpful advice to help families blend when their children become tied to one another through the in-law (or even the in-love) relationship.
