it was amazing
bookshelves: non-fiction
Read in March, 2001

Very good book. Not a fluff piece. It caused some self examination of my relationship with Stephanie. "Are We Traveling in Different directions" and "The Bad Stuff" chapters are very potent stuff.

My favorite quote: "Oh, the comfort- the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person, having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all right out, just as they are, chaff and grain together, certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping and then with a breath of kindness blow the rest away." -George Eliot
