Format: Paperback
I found this book to be very useful in describing the problems that arise in relationships and how they are rooted in childhood experiences. It gives many examples of couples in therapy and their issues. The book is very precise and comprehensive on the topic. The exercises are very useful and can be given to clients. Its great manual for understanding relationship dynamics in general and can be used with couples or individuals in therapy.

Format: Paperback
The above statement, "connection is defenseless relating" is a statement on p.124 and summarizes the whole essence of the book. Very informative as the authors give case studies that are thorough examples of the point they want to make. They describe how each partner, although they crave for love, when they are given it, they do not see it or they reject it. It is what I would call "experiential" book: They reveal their own vulnerable side as a couple and they give exercises of working on ourselves. These exercises as well as all the book are of tremendous assistance in locating the barriers we put on ourselves to receive love and affection.
Since I 've read the book I am much more able to "locate" my own self-rejection patterns and those of my clients. As a family and couple therapist myself I feel grateful to H. Hendrix and H.Hunt for their contribution.

I liked this book enough to recommend it and lend it to a friend. It has lots of interesting ideas. For example, one of the authors' postulations is that we marry a person who reminds us on some subconcious level of our most troublesome parent. We could not do anything about this as a child, but as an adult, we set about changing what we so much disliked in our childhood. The marital conflict follows. I do think, however, that this book has three major drawbacks. 1. Eventhough the authors briefly mention that their exercises could be useful if done by one person on their own, in my opinion, for their therapy to work you really do need two willing participants. 2. The exercises feel rather contrite and artificial to me, I do think, one might need the nudge of a therapist to get the couple started at least. 3. I fail to see how these elaborate exercises can bring swift results, in fact, the authors themselves admit, some couples spent years in their therapy. If one needs a book which can bring results fast I would definitely recommend "5 Languages of Love" by Gary Chapman. This book would be useful even if only one partner is prepared to put in the effort. If you are a female and feeling brave you can always go for "Surrendered Wife" by Laura Doyle. And since I found so many Buddhist concepts lurking underneath "Receiving Love" (eventhough the authors never mentioned their faith or the lack thereof) I thought I would recommend "Buddha in Your Mirror" by Woody Hochswender, Greg Martin and Ted Morino.
