Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the read... This was honestly one of the best books I have ever read, in terms of "self help" or personal understanding. I had seen/read many different people's reviews from various online sources, and all were spot on. This book is a reality check for many of us who struggle in love and trying to understand why we do the things we do, why we are attracted to those we are attracted to, and how to get out of our own way when dealing with relationships. It doesn't tell you the answers to all life's problems, but it certainly acts like a mirror in some circumstances. I had to put the book down by page 70 and take a walk...but I've recommended this book to countless friends, all of whom have thanked me for it in the end. Worth the money, I'd say. 1 minute ago

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epiphany I have read, or scanned, numerous personal development books over the years. I seldom encounter one that I actually site down and READ. He's Scared, She's Scared reached out and tapped me on the shoulder, then when I turned around, held a mirror in front of my face. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wonders, "Why do I keep getting myself into relationships that don't meet my needs?"One final comment in this book’s favor, it helps you examine your attitudes and behaviors - but does not tell you that you are flawed. Instead, if you perhaps recognize yourself while reading the authors say, "Well, there you go, now you know and you can do with that information what you will."
