Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Facts! This book does what the myriad other books on relationships fail to do: the author takes second place to the topic. In many other books, similar ideas are presented but from a specific angle or pet ideology. Dr. Halpern, leaves his own ego aside and provides a no nonsense approach to dealing with relationships that has a unique clarity and wisdom about it. I have given copies of this book to many of my friends and will continue to do so until I find something better. Here is a book, NOT from a feminist, or man's, or spiritual, or atheistic, or psychiatric, or inner child, or other point of view. This book reminds me of another excellent book written with the same powerful honesty: Simply Living and Loving, by Dr. John Warnock. The latter, however, deals with a person's inner psychology in general, with a section on relationships. If you want "the goods" on relationships, Dr. Halpern's book is the one to get. If you want "the goods" on yourself, Dr. Warnock's book is the one you should beg Chapters to reprint! Happy relating!

Some of the topics he explores include: how to tell if a relationship is worth saving; how to cope with loneliness; and, how to recognize and change subconscious reasons for avoiding good people and more.
