A very useful book, especially for young unattached people. The style is a little irritating, (my male partner was really turned off by it but is now pleased he persevered) but the content excellent. Relationships and their problems are succinctly catagorised so that the path to lasting love becomes easier to follow. For those already in long relationships there is useful material at the end of the book, but I felt that this could have been further developed with more examples of mature mixed couples from the three main groups (anxious, secure, and avoidant) and possible solutions to typical problems. However, I have certainly gained insight into why certain reactions and emotions recur with my partners.
