One of Top Relationship/Dating books!

Having gone through a divorce (one that I spend the last 4-yrs of trying to save) and now dating for the last 3 yrs trying to make sure that the next marriage lasts forever, I've read a lot of relationship books and this is right at the top. The author does an amazing job explaining the proper and ordered steps of building a healthy relationship. I've recommended to a number of friends and they've felt the same way.

Thought provoking

This book was recommended to me by someone who wants me to have a lasting healthy relationship.
It’s given me a lot to think about and helped clarify what a good relationship is.
I don’t agree with everything Dr. Van Epp said in this book, but he makes a great deal of sense.
I would recommend this book to everyone seeking a good relationship, especially to young people just starting to date.

Advice About Dating I Wish I'd Known Sooner!

This book is a MUST READ for everyone in the dating world (or about to enter the dating world). I think it should be mandatory reading before you graduate from high school so that you know what a healthy relationship does or does not look like. I read this after going through a messy divorce in preparation for learning what I did wrong in my marriage - Did I marry a jerk to begin with? Or, was I the jerk? If so, I didn't want to repeat the same mistake twice!

This was my first every Audible book, and I never thought I'd enjoy LISTENING to a book, but it's great to do while you're driving in the car. I'm hooked on Audible books now!

Good content, terrible reader

The content is super valuable. The reader is hard to listen to and sounds like he is sneering arrogantly through the entire audiobook.

solid and powerful suggestions for singles.

I am listening a second time so I can get more of the information into my heart and mind. This information needs to be part of who I am not just something I have heard.

Great book to read before dating

I really enjoyed th is book and want to utilize the information. I will most likely listen to the audio book 2 more times to reinforce. the narrator's voice sounded very mysterious and kept me interested the entire time.

Phenomenal. Would recommend to anyone single.

This book was everything I needed to understand in order to break the cycle of dating individuals who are destructive to both my mental health and theirs.

Antiquated

It’s a marriage guidance book with a jazzed up title to draw in modern readers. I was disappointed.
