WOW!!! WHAT AN AMAZING BOOK!!! Jan 22, 2008
I've probably spent hundreds of dollars on self-help books over the years looking for answers I couldn't seem to find. My husband and I have been together for over 18 years - many of which felt like banging our heads against the wall in frustration and three of which were spent separated. We were blessed to have survived the separation. I heard about this book on the radio (kkla) and knew it was the book we needed. By far, it is one of the BEST and most effective books I've ever come across. I admit, it was a bit daunting at first as the workbook made us dig pretty deep within ourselves, (I think the workbook is key!) but God really helped us to persevere! This book was a catalyst in helping us to undersand each other and ourselves in ways we never thought possible. Your book and workbook helped to promote real communication between us and helped to give us the best relationship we've ever had -- so much that my husband and I renewed our vows on December 31. We are recommending this book to all of our friends! Thank you, Milan and Kay!
Therapy at Your Fingertips Oct 29, 2007
This is one of the most brilliant marriage books I've read. Rather than oversimplifying marriage problems as a lack of love or respect, Milan and Kay invite the reader to go deeper than surface issues and explore patterns of relating that can often be traced back as early as the first year of life. Drawing from Harville Hendrix's Imago Relationship theory, Milan & Kay frame How We Love within a Christian context and lay out practical interventions that couples can integrate into their relationships. I also highly recommend the workbook to help readers internatlize on a practical level what they are reading in the book. The caring, helpful tone of the book almost makes it feel as if you have your very own therapist walking with you every step of the way. Brilliant. A must-read not only for couples, but also marriage therapists and lay counselors.

Hits the nail on the head Sep 14, 2007
I've read books before that "categorize" your personality type, etc, and I have never heard anyone describe me... until I read this book. They nailed my personality or "love style", based on how I was raised. It really gave me insight into WHY I do things the way I do. And not only that, but it showed me HOW to work on those areas that need work. Great book... I am buying a copy of the book and workbook for some friends who are getting married. What better way to start off marriage, than to understand yourself better, before trying to understand someone else?! This book has also helped me understand my husband better too and be more compassionate and understanding of him. :)
This book saved our marriage!! Sep 3, 2007
Being married for 29 years might prove our commitment to one another, but it by no means reveals the turmoil and hurt that has been exchanged. After seeing several counselors and reading a plethora of marriage/relationship 'self-imrovement' books, we could not seem to find the missing key to unlock the destructive patterns and 'dances' that had so encumbered our marriage. I heard Milan Yerkovich on the radio talking about this book and its accompanying workbook. I checked it out, purchased it, and we are now working through the workbook together (we each have our own copy). It has completely changed the way that we relate to one another, even after all these years. We are taking our time going through the questions, sharing with and learning things about each other that we would never have known otherwise. The change, especially in my husband, has been nothing short of amazing.
I would HIGHLY recommend this book and workbook to all couples. If more couples would use this book before going through with a divorce I dare to say that they wouldn't choose to divorce. The information contained in these pages will truly change your life!
love styles Aug 29, 2007
"How we love", is an excellent book that helps you look at your styles of loving. It sheds light on why you might be having conflicts in your marriage or relationships based on the comfort you both did or did not receive as a children. It also looks at your different learned styles of emotional love and how these may clash with your spouses. I've found it very enlightening, and plan on using the workbook soon as well.
