Reviews - What do customers think about Relationships That Work: (And Those That Don't)?
Outstanding Nov 17, 2006
I just picked up this book to browse through it. I have been married for 25 years and I have children 18 and 21. I was interested in this book for them. I was very impressed with the content and how practical it is. In particular, he has one of the best descriptions of the difference between healthy and unhealthy relationships..."It's not a good sign"...things that occur in relationships that are missed unless you know to look for them (we see what we know to see). I also like his description of infatuation vs. love. "Infatuation could lead you to do things you might regret...Love won't".
Good Book May 8, 2000
My boyfriend and I are going through this book together. It's a really good book for couples who are wanting a book that will help them explore their relationship and grow with God. It is a real "learning" book--it causes us to learn so much about each other. Lots of questions. A great book.
Looking for structure is your relationship? Sep 25, 1998
I was very impressed with this book. If you are in a relationship, just got out of one, or looking for ways to make your future relationship better than your last, this book is a great read. If you are in a seriuos relationship, this book is great to go over with your mate, to make sure the both of you right right for eachother. This book is also great because you can also see your flaws, so you can pray to God and work on them. If you want to have a healthy, balanced relationship, read this book!!!
