I found this book illuminating of sorts. With zero background on psychology, I was pleased to have a crash course into the different approaches to treatment as well as clarify the many aspects of jealousy. I lack the insight to be more critical of everything I've read, and I've taken down many notes for future reference for both myself and my friends.
