  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Nancy | 2/3/2014

    " a friend recommended this author, as she was sorting through some relationship issues. I liked this one best of the several Harriet Lerner books my library had. It's simple, honest, and helpful with lots of plausible examples of difficult communication in relationships(family, romantic, friends). Lots of food for thought and practical advice. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Dottie | 1/16/2014

    " Sparked perhaps by an underlying connection to an older book which has held a place in my personal library for many years, I picked this up and am finding it refreshing that there is no follow this plan and this happens or that happens -- again, an echo of the earlier book. None of the usual self-help "magic" solution style -- just informational and thought provoking. We shall see if it holds up to the end. "

    " It was an interesting book on communication effectively. "
