Changed my marriage in an instant

So many relationship books give great advice and ideas on how to cope with partners' difficult behaviours and ways of interacting. This book goes to the core of our being and touches on the parts of all of us that need love and nurturing. The research and case studies are presented in an accessible way that have allows even the most reluctant and disengaged of partners to connect and revise the story of love in that relationship. This book has changed me and my marriage from the moment I got through the first chapter. In a week, my marriage is more connected and fulfilling than it has been in 6 years! Thank you Dr Johnson!

This beautiful lovingly written book is so nourishing and enlightening. I absolutely marveled the message in the book and I feel so fortunate to find it. It doesn't matter how old you are and what is your current status. Read it withan open heart and you will not regret it.

Great foundation

As a psych in practice we tend to focus on the love languages, communication etc, this book is a very helpful foundation to build on these other strategies. Highly recommend this book

amazing self exploration.

Thanks Sue
I am able to view our relationship as if I am looking over my shoulder, not stuck in my HEAD, Spiraling into depression - being angry didn't help in the past...

Dissapointed

As an experienced clinician, I am very well informed about Attachment theory and am very keen to learn more about how to help clients in relationships using attachment based skills. However, definitely the style of narration and perhaps some parts of the writing style, I find very off putting. It comes accross as a novel, the narration aimed at showing the acting skills/ skills at narrating different characters. - nót as a book with skills that contains stories of real people, aimed for real people to apply. The hard copy may be different.

Overall good book, annoying narration

The book iitself is fine, although feels superficial. It’s ok for couples therapy where none of the partners has a decent dose of personality dysfunction, in particular narcissistic personality structure where these techniques could potentially make a vulnerable partner even more so. It assumes both parties are invested in the relationship equally, often not the case. So it feels somewhat superficial to me. The female narrator does the most annoying, pathetic, weak female voice impersonification that was difficult to listen to. I am surprised Sue Johnston allowed it to be released as such. I certainly wouldn’t have had it been my book!

Great content, great narration

Not only has the content of this book radically changed how I view the world (for the better I do believe), but the narration is really superb.

Good - with one minus in the end

Very good when it comes to Relationships

but

almost retracted a star ⭐ when Sue in the end went into a more 'general life-view' topic and said:

'compassion can be learned from the bible, KORAN & buddhism'

I invite her to get a deeper knowledge on the topic of Mohammed & the koran, before making such claims, on a topic she knows little about.

Hold Tight for an emotional roller coaster:)

Insightful, inspiring, provoking of both thoughts and emotions. Gave me the ability to analyse my own behaviour and responses . Has hopefully equipped me with some tools to try and rebuild and nurture my marriage.

You need this book!

Wether you are in a long term relationship or just starting out, there are skills and insights in this book that can help you. Even if you don’t think you need help. Probably more so. This book can help you back to better, stronger love and help you maintain it. Dont wait untill it’s too late. Very, very uplifting.

A book on how we rarely say or even know what we mean and feel

This is my first book of this kind so the language and subject matter kind of grossed me out and made me roll my eyes initially but its a great book.

It really shows that people never really say how they feel. I think it shows you how to engage with that deeper conversation thats going unsaid.

Great Book, poor performance.

I felt it quite hard to focus on the content as the delivery was overly emotional. I am aware of the irony.

AMAZING

This is one of the best relationship book I have ever read. Its message is trulybworth reading. it offers a different narrative and focus to that which is often focused on in other contemporary booka of this theme.
