WOW! Highly Recommend This Book! Dec 4, 2006
I don't often post reviews online, but "How We Love" is more than worth my time. The Yerkovichs have helped me to understand more about myself, my spouse and our relationship than I had ever put thought to. I had always considered my marriage (now in its 10th year) to be good, though I knew my husband wanted more from me. There was an obvious disconnect, but as long as there was no conflict I could be perfectly content. Why couldn't he? A-ha! Read on! In How We Love, the Yerkovichs gave me the reason and more. They say that expectations in relationships can differ between spouses because our first lessons about love (in our childhood) are often very different and often not the healthiest. They helped me to clearly and easily identify my own damaged love style, and that of my spouse, and then they walked us through ways to adopt new, healthier love styles. We are still and always a work in progress, but I am amazed at the new ways I know my husband and I am encouraged by how he is getting to know me better too. The Yerkovichs book is fostering in my marriage more intimate conversation, compassion for each other, understanding of our differences and positive change than I even knew I needed or wanted. I highly recommend this book if you would like a deeper connection in your marriage or relationship too.
This Book Will Get You & Your Marriage in Great Shape! Nov 13, 2006
I was on the bike this morning in the gym reading How We Love. I typically go for 25 minutes, but I couldn't put the book down. I kept hitting "5 more minutes....5 more minutes..." Just like working out, if you want to see results in your marriage, you need to not only go to the gym, but you need to watch what you eat. Gym + eating right = a slimmer, toner body.
Understanding how you love + how your spouse loves = a loving relationship based on sharing mutual needs & comfort. When couples work through this book and the workbook together, the results are better marriages and more loving families.
Milan & Kay have written a wonderful, insightful book that will change you, your marriage and every willing couple who reads it. I know dozens of couples who have benefitted from their counseling, insights, and authentic marriage that models a Christ-centered love.
Walking out of the gym, I tripped on the stairs leading out of the gym. Fortunately, I was holding Milan & Kay's book in my right hand and as the spine of the book firmly landed on the next stair, it saved me from a serious faceplant on the steps.
I know there's a lesson there for me and everyone who reads this wonderful book.
Here's to understanding how we love and how to become better lovers in our marriage!

Growing up with Milan and Kay as my parents, I have received the benefit of their healthy marriage. The principles in this book not only create intimacy in marriage, but also help parents connect with their children. I have confidence this interactive book will be a catalyst for healthier marriages and families across the world.
Why Marriages Suffer Oct 10, 2006
"Can you recall a time as a child when you were upset and someone comforted you?"
Milan and Kay believe that the answer to that simple question is the secret force that shapes the way we relate to others for the rest of our lives. It's a powerful, controversial question, but the answer is even more remarkable. Did your response to comfort (or a lack of it) create a pattern to play out in relationships?
In this book, the Yerkoviches have distilled all the marriage problems they encounter in their practice into this one root problem--a lack of comfort--and then shown how to solve them all with a simple, practical solution. Virtually any challenge you're facing--lack of communication, resentment, old arguments, in-laws, blaming, anger, emotional pain, expectations--can be overcome through this systematic reframing of the reason for decreased intimacy. If it sounds too good to be true, you need to get the book and prove yourself wrong.
In a world where bold claims by personalities and watered-down pablum steals the limelight, Milan and Kay have made a true contribution with this book. We may talk about rising divorce rates, scandalous affairs, and the irreconcilable division between male and female in every culture, but How We Love presents a true, undeniable solution. You may not agree that the comfort question is vital to your present relationships, but you will be challenged to improve your responses to those you love by the sincere and thorough work Milan and Kay have put into this book. The personal experiences, extensive testing, and years of study and research make this book one of the rare few that actually delivers what so many relationsip books claim to do. Among these, How We Love belongs in the class with Gottman, Chapman, Dr. Phil, & Dr. Laura, but even exceeds them in the real-world, down-to-earth honesty about the ways we all relate to each other. In the end, I was convinced this book will bring hope to anyone who picks it up. This is not a theoretical blueprint by some well-known clinicians; this is a couple who have lived this in their daily practice for over 30 years.
Why have so many people responded so positively to this message already? What is it that Steve Arterburn, Josh McDowell, and Harville Hendrix see in the Yerkoviches' idea? I think it's what I saw when I first came across it as a jaded marriage book acquisitions editor: the hope that we CAN have the relatinoships we all hope for. When I considered how I learned to love and how that contributed to my ideas about giving and receiving, I began to realize just how revolutionary the idea of learning from the past truly is. And once you understand the principles here, I think you'll agree.
