Reviews - What do customers think about The Secret of Staying in Love?
5 star content.. Mar 9, 2007
A friend loaned me this book at just the time I needed to hear what it shared.. and it is an incredible book, which I have subsequently bought for various friends.. On the content of the book alone, I would rate this an unequivocal 5 stars. It is powerful, and it's message is an important one for all of us to hear.. The exercises at the back are brilliant..
I recently learned, however, that John Powell has admitted to sexual abuse perpetrated against a number of young girls/young women under his care.. I am shocked, saddened and sickened by what I have learned, and it has tainted my perception of his books.
Admitted to child sexual abuse Mar 9, 2007
This priest admitted to child sexual abuse. Please realize that he is a liar. What he has written sounds so good, but you cannot trust the words he has written. It is so sad that he used his gift to lure children into his awful life.
Share this one with your friends!!!! May 23, 2006
I read this book at a time when I felt my relationship was falling apart. Powell's wise insights into the value of communication, honesty, and talking things over when every ounce of your being - save one - says to give up gave me the strength to re-examine my thoughts and feelings. I took the advise he gave and now, six months later, feel changed for the better. My relationship is thriving, and my understanding and (most importantly) appreciation and love of my boyfriend is much greater. I would recommend this book to anyone!
Inconsistent Apr 16, 2003
After telling us that "loving yourself" is the key to happiness, the author then tells us that "we can not make it alone......I need to see my worth and beauty reflected in your eyes." p.24. This puts people right back where they were, addicted to others. Sure, human beings fundamentally need other people, but only after becoming secure without them.
Should be required reading Oct 23, 2001
This book is awesome and should be required reading for everyone. Yes, it's written by a priest, but the 'religious' references are minimal and don't in any way detract from the message of the book - unless you choose to let them do so. I've given many to friends and will continue to do so ... very powerful message, yet easy to read, understand and apply the principles. An immeasurable gift to give to yourself or to others.
