Basically, if I could summarise the book, which I hate doing so (because its so awesome that YOU have to pick the book up yourself and read it in its entirety)'
is that self-esteem is MOST important to you loving the other person (who could be an extension of yourself).
Two whole beings, those who know the true fact that in the end we are all alone, and accepts that fact and knows how to survive and fully appreciate and believe in what one is - then one two of these, meet, you get the willful 'surrender' of sovereignty, but not to the fullest extent as, remember, one can live without the other.
Some people say self-confidence is important too. But does that not come under self-esteem?
Communication - not just in the surface, but communicating what's deep within you and listening, like REALLY listening, to the other's as well. Speak up and find out about the reasons that belie your's and the other's emotions/thoughts for them to have acted in certain ways etc.
Anyways, I will keep it to this. I want people to go ahead and get their own copies.
For those who have been trying to find and understand what makes love work, and what doesn't, look no further, for this book helps solve it.

Very humane, subtle in its politickings, and the politickings, yes, I LOVED That! There's actually 2, 3 co-current scandals running at the same time. The main one of course is the Allies-Iraq War where it was staged of sorts to fight it. The other humane scandals focused on revival and rebirth of love and human, and well of Robert Burnett with other women in his life. You'd feel pity and understanding for why he 'cheated'. Next thing that I liked also is the case-study discussion by the young people in the book who were taking Arabic classes, and the general talk about the Muslims - awesome. I myself am a Muslim who is in a relationship with a Christian, and this echoes with what I have.
Really, really awesome book, keeps you on your toes and emotion, as well as challenges your intellectual once in a while.

If you haven't read this book (or know, I don't blame you if you're a Muslim), but at least you should get the concept, because as this world is, well, dominated by Western culture, its essential you know what A Christmas Carol is about.
I loved the book, its not REALLY a Christian book telling you to worship Jesus and what not. Its a moral story - almost like a fairy tale.
It will be of interest for the young and adults alike I reckon - the message is universal.
I still enjoy reading this story as I grow older.
Worth a read indeed.
Just don't celebrate Christmas if you're not Christina, by the way. Just a affirmation, to celebrate the values, which are inherent in every other religion.
