Book Description

Jun 1994
You're trying to get Mr. or Ms. Wrong out of your system.  You know you deserve better that that old, hurtful love.  But why is Ms. Nice so boring?  Why doesn't Mr. Good Guy turn you on?  Will you ever feel excited and passionate again? Howard M. Halpern's wise, witty, compassionate book tells readers why they feel this way--and how they can find a healthy love without giving up the thrill. From an author whose work has helped thousands, here is balm for everyone burned by love, and a bracing companion for the journey ahead.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best self-help books ever written 4 Jan 1999
By A Customer - Published on
If you have even been in a less-than-satisfying relationship, and particularly if you have ever had difficulty separating from such a relationship, this may be the book for you! Of the 9-10 highly recommended self-help books I read during a very difficult time, this one was the most insightful and most helpful to me. In fact, looking back at it after a year in a very satisfying and fullfilling relationship, I think the first 9 chapters almost "saved my life....or at least, my sanity!"This is an extention to Halpern's highly successful "How to Break Your Addition to a Person." I found the present book first and never felt the need to read the first book, although I later glanced at it. I think the first few chapters in the present book probably capture the essence of the first book. The book in HIGHLY readable. I think if this book were more widely read, there would be MANY more people in happier relationships.

Sheer Brilliance, not just normal brilliance. Rare gem of a book. Gets into the stuff that's really going on in a level that is so profound it knocks the wind out of you. I found myself afraid to read further as each page would open up a whole new level of understanding that I started getting really like ok this is too good, time to slow down.

This book is a must once you've read "How To Break Your Addiction To A Person".
In my opinion, Howard Halpern is nothing short of a genius.
