I really like what Henry Cloud writes. I had been reading this book for over 6 months here and there! I found alot of the information helpful. Alot of information in this book has a spiritual aspect to it. I found alot of the story sinerios interesting and I could relate to alot of them at times.

This book is a great read and you don't have to be married to appreciate it. We all have relationships that would benefit from the attitudes and information in this book.

I read this book and used the workbook as I went through it. I've learned a lot. Hopefully I'll be able to put these positive attitudes and behaviors into my daily life and make my marriage better.
