Still relevant today! Mar 17, 2007
I bought this book at the recommendation of my therapist. Once I started reading this, I wondered, why? Why did she recommend this? I never thought of myself as "angry", however as I kept reading I realized the book is about most women I know, including myself, who constantly habor the same feelings and resentments, day after day, month after month - the dance - with no resolution in sight. I recommend this book to anyone - man or woman - who feels stuck in a rut in a personal relationship, ANY personal relationship, with no growth or maturation in sight. It will lead you to understand that you are only responsible for yourself and that you cannot change anyone else - whether you are concious of the fact that you are "hoping" for this change or not! Loved it!
dance of intimacy Jan 15, 2007
This book was very intersting and helped me to better understand relationships in a whole new different aspect. This was one of the best most informative books that I've read recently. Two thumbs up for me!
Wonderful resource for both men and women. Jan 9, 2007
Dr. Lerner provides some excellent information on how anger influences our lives on a daily basis, particularly in interpersonal relationships. Her examples and explanations are clear and concise and as a former therapist I would heartily recommend this book as a resource for use in a therapeutic situation and for anyone seeing knowledge on the affect of anger on our lives.
Insightful and helpful Jan 5, 2007
Very helpful. Even if you enjoy analyzing and reanalyzing yourself and your relationships, this book helps present ideas in a clear and simple manner. It has many examples so that you see "bad" behavior in its many forms.
The Dance of Anger CD: A Woman's Guide to Changing the Pattern of Intimate Relationships Jan 4, 2007
I bought both the CD and book for this title, recommended by my counselor. The CD has been listened to on my trips to and from work, and the book has been a continuing reference. I saw/see myself in so many of the situations detailed by the author; I could have been the woman with a very similar story. As I realized that patterns had been deeply set, I knew that I had to be the one to start the changes. Was it difficult? Of couse, but I needed to stop the cycle that was destroying my relationship. It has been more than three months since I first started using this guide. With the help of a wonderful therapist, I can say that the relationship with my husband is stronger than I ever felt it would be. There is still more work to be done, and I will continue. I do not want anger to ever control me/us again.
