Indie Reader has reviewed Avoidant: How to Love (or Leave) a Dismissive Partner here.
Shortened review for web sites:
IR Verdict: 4/5 Stars, IR Approved. … a useful resource for those trapped in relationships with people unable to give them the caring connection they require.
Kinnison addresses specifically those readers who have found themselves already attached to an avoidant partner, who want to find a way to either a healthy relationship or a healthy breakup. He discusses ways… an avoidant partner can become more empathetic and responsive, while also showing how their spouse or significant other can adapt their own behavior patterns in order to avoid the worst aspects of loving an avoidant.
AVOIDANT has the merits of being eminently practical first and foremost… The advice he offers is generally sound, and sympathetic to all concerned. He also suggests in places specific actions a person can take in order to get past bad patterns in their own emotional life and in their relationships, and uses actual cases – with the names, of course, changed – as examples…. a useful resource for those trapped in relationships with people unable to give them the caring connection they require.
