5 stars – Spot On!

This book put together all of the crazy-making broken pieces of my 35-year relationship with a fearful avoidant partner, which helped me to make sense of it all. Following a relational crisis 4 years ago, I had been sorting through the puzzling pieces, searching for resources, and going through counseling to try to understand the devastation. In the early stages, the only resource that seemed applicable and made any sense was Emotionally Focused Therapy, which is a fluffy, watered-down version of attachment issues when it comes to the truly avoidant. I always suspected attachment issues, yet it took this book to pull it all together. It reads like someone documented the entire relationship.

Absolutely necessary to understand people’s behavior before you commit to long term relationship, or while you are in it but is confused about what is happening. I have read a lot of other books and online info, this book is the easiest to understand and is clear as day, especially if you are in such a relationship or has been previously. can’t say enough about it.
