Testimonials, Praise

I have read a lot of self-help books. Many very insightful, many filled with empty platitudes that indulged the author, but did little for me. After reading Laura Garrett’s clever book, I was impressed at how accessible her story was and helpful the tools were that she offered. I have read this book twice and will continue to use it as a workbook when my spouse and I get into troubled waters and forget how important compassion, empathy and honest communication is to a healthy relationship. Thank you, Laura, for putting your thoughts together. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to think honestly about how they can have a healthier relationship with their partner as well as themselves.

I found this book offers many helpful techniques to work through different kinds of relationships. The author writes in an easy to understand an enjoyable style.
