Good informative book, thoughts I liked:

Love diminishes when you stop doing loving activities together.

The tongue is in a wet place and easily slips.

Good insights, although I was surprised that it took the turn toward the "power of positive thinking." It seems that's a rising theme, both in Christian and secular works. But then again, if they agree then there must be something to it.

The authors believe there are healthier ways to handle anger, and that is the topic of this book. I am finding it ...more

I read this book during a very dark time in my life. It really helped me to learn how to control my temper, as well as to let certain things go. It's a very helpful book, or at least was for me.

Good book. Now, to just apply what I read to real life. Big lesson is that you have use your mind. Train you mind. When you are thinking bad thoughts, bad experiences, change the thought to something pleasant. Tell yourself this is not good for you. Then think of a good experience.
