Great book Aug 25, 2006
this is a great book about relationships.it can help you with all the aspects of life and how a good relationship can work.i would recomend this book to anyone wanting to improve the relationship.
Everyone should read this book. Feb 11, 2005
After reading this book I have decided that I am going to give this book away as a gift to nearly everyone I possibly can. I started learning about Leo in my psychology class when we started studying love. Leo is one of the greatest people ever to learn about love from. You can tell through his writing that if you were to ever meet him, he'd love you. What an incredible gift. Leo is no longer alive and the world should shed a tear for loosing such a great man. Thankfully, he left us everything he knew about love.
Loving Each Other is one of those simple yet life changing books. A lot of the things he said it was as if I should have known but I didn't until he said it. Incredibly encouraging this book gives a person in any loving relationship something to think about. If you love someone, anyone, you should read this book and learn how to love better and love more.
I couldn't say enough about this book. I do encourage you to buy and read it, then pass it on. This book could change the world.

More books need to be written about love. It can be very inspirational to read this book, especially during particularly stressful times in my life. Thank you Leo.

Meeting the challenge of loving in an unloving society Aug 8, 2002
I guess love looks different from the perspective of a successful 47-year marriage -- you feel like you know a little (although not a lot) about what it is to form a relationship and to keep it growing in love. That's what this book is all about, and it's full of really superb advice.
"If you love, you're considered naive," Buscaglia writes. "If happy, you're considered frivolous (or, in this reviewer's experience, no one believes you) and simple. If trusting, you're considered a fool. If you try to be all those things, people think you're a phony." Boy, that's calling it as it is!
Emphasizing the importance of good communications in relationships, Buscaglia stresses the need for honesty and truth. "Only truth," he writes, " can bring us the necessary trust needed for long-lasting relationships. Only truth, painful though it may sometimes be, can create a safe environment of unity and growth."
Understanding the dynamics of forgiveness is crucial to those who care about lasting relationships. He discusses loving each other in joy, in intimacy and the challenge of developing trusting relationships. Friendship is an expression of deep regard for another.
In a friendship, each affirms the other and reinforces his or her dignity with respect and affection. "As the friendship becomes deeper," he writes, "it becomes a sharing of vulnerabilities in a safe environment. We let each other know that our becoming is of the utmost interest and concern. We show in action that we respect and admire one another, that we enjoy the opportunity to be together and share experiences."
There's little in life that is as comfortable, rewarding and fulfilling as a long-term, totally trusting relationship based on respect and love. Following the concepts presented in this book makes developing that kind of relationship a little easier than trying to "reinvent the wheel" by doing it on your own.
Love can be so close sometimes Sep 5, 2001
I recently read this book by Leo after reading Love. It is a good book to let you know how to feel love, how to be there for someone when they need you. Love is not just about saying it to each other and I think Leo explains the small details. I was involved with a woman who knew how to say "I love you" with such ease but meaning it and proving it in small ways was so beyond her capability, she had been in many relationships before but had only ever skimmed the surface with these men, having no clue on how to really be there for someone. Such a shame really as that was the biggest gap we had but when I would try to explain it, she either thought I was wrong or being controlling? but all I ever wanted like most men is for that person to show they can be there when needed, maybe too many past relationships caused her to think of only herself and treated men with such indifference. Sad really, I would recommend anyone to get this book and you will see many small things that can make loving someone so much better if you are lacking in certain skills of loving someone. But I have leanrt to not blame her for her lack of those skills but to try to remember the good times we had and move on knowing there were good times as being bitter like her will not change things. Hopefully one day she will realize these things and when she does she will find someone else who is suitable for her and she can make that relationship last.
