Format: Paperback
Unlike the other book though, this book will help men and women alike. It is not aimed only at daughter-in-laws, but rather at daughter-in-laws and son-in-laws alike.

The book is crammed full of really useful and constructive advice about what you are entitled to expect from your in-laws (e.g. respect and to be treated as the equal adult that you are), what you are NOT entitled to expect (e.g. you cannot assume/expect that they will love you, but similarly of course, they cannot assume/expect that you will love them), how to deal with them constructively and in a non-aggressive, non-conflicting manner, how to get your spouse on side if he/she is not standing up to his/her parents/your in-laws, and so on.

The book discusses realistic and unrealistic expectations and explains how our unrealistic expectations can hinder the development of a decent relationship with our in-laws. It helps you to understand why they treat you like they do, shows you through real-life accounts that you could have even nastier (or messed up) in-laws (yes, there really are people worse off than you, which I found reassuring and which helped me to put things in perspective), and most importantly of all, it gives you solid, concrete advice about how to approach them from now on, as the "new you", i.e. as the equal adult that you are, even if they seem to think of you as otherwise!

As with all self-help books, this book will only help you if you are willing to really delve deeply into yourself and examine your own past behaviour. If you refuse to believe that you are anything except an absolutely perfect human being who has never done or said anything that could have been misinterpreted, then this book will not help you.

After having read 'Toxic Parents', I was very pleased to find this book, and knew immediately it would live up to the same standard. I wasn't disappointed. For those of us unlucky enough to be 'blessed' with difficult and even down right thoroughly toxic in-laws, this book not only helps the reader to feel less alone in their plight, but gives useful insight and practical advice, tips, and step-by-step guidance in dealing with such harridans. Beware - it's more than likely to stir up some difficult memories and inner turmoil, but one is so much more enlightened, forewarned, and empowered upon reaching the end of the book.

I have read this book twice! Not only does it offer lots of useful strategies for dealing with jealous and insecure inlaws but it also offers lots of reassurance that this is actually a very common inlaw reaction and you are not, in fact, a terrible person! Brilliant book.
