This is a simple, beautiful workbook about self and relationships. It's often funny, yet there are passages from it that have stayed with me over the years... especially stuff about childhood. I recommend to anyone who wants to undersand himself and his responses to external events better.

I read this book .I have this book. This book is about loving yourself just the way you are. it gives tools for self forgiveness and acceptance. I think now i actually am the person I want to find !!! I have flaws and things that I definitely could stand a lot of improvement but I am loved, loving , lovable and capable of forgiving myself and others. This book is simply written the font is very unsual for a book. You wil be the Person you want to find whether you are in a relationship or not. th ...more

I really loved this book. It was a great book for exactly the right time in my life. It helped me heal from a relationship that had just ended and I started to recognize my own dysfunctional patterns in relationships... things that held me back and weren't honest or fair to either of us. It was a quick, easy read that I found myself going back to time and time again. Definitely worth a read if you're ready for a positive change!

This casual little book has tons of things to think about. I choose to read it on the suggestion of my daughter. She, my son and I were all reading it at the same time. This is a book you need to purchase, and re-read often. It takes awhile for Huber's perspective on conduct of life to sink in. It is not intuitive but it is worth the time you need to invest in the book to understanding it.

It was amazing! I learned that I shouldn't depend on anyone else to make me happy. It's all up to me to be the person I want to find. This book teaches me to take myself out of the conditioning I've learned as a child, and to live as an adult. This book is based on Zen, and I've learned so much! It's life changing for me and I recommend anyone read it...even if you have a significant other!

Hands down the best book I've ever read! Whether you're in a relationship (good or bad) or like me and still looking for someone, this book will teach you that being in the moment (zen) is the key to attracting the kind of relationship(s) you want. Easy and delightful read; conversational tone; excellent examples anyone can relate to.

This book really made me think. It doesn't offer easy to follow instructions that give a quick fix...but it does prompt you to embark on an ongoing journey of self-awareness and discovery that will lead to much growth and positive change in the long run if you stick with the process.

It would have been a better book if I actually had some issues with relationships. (at least, I don't have enough issues that I needed this book.) However, I'm interested to read more of her books-maybe I'll find one that's more applicative to me.

Best book on all kinds of relationships. If you are married, have a girl friend/boy friend/lover, read it. Get a copy for your lover or read it together. It will change your life. Best book by Cheri Huber on relationships.
