All books on this subject disappoint me so bad.
So many " Try- should- should not- avoid - try - try- ..."

The book is written from a doctor's perspective and touches on things I already knew, but it was a good reminder. The chapters on communication are really helpful. Also, self care is also just as important when you have a caretaker role. I notice when my anxiety and depression makes me misinterpret my partner and I lose perspective. Read the the entire review here.
I've read several books like this, and this is the one I'd recommend to others. It covers the same topics as the others, but it's thorough and incredibly easy to read. I skimmed through the entire book pretty quickly, and ended up making copies of sections to keep (since I didn't purchase the book).
