"This jewel of a book -- simple, clear, and profound -- is packed
with wisdom to help two separate people love wholeheartedly."
-- Linda Carroll, MS, LMFT, BCC, psychotherapist and author of Love Cycles
"A highly readable and practical guide to handling differences gracefully. James Creighton coaches us on how to change the attitudes and behaviors that lead to conflict. He shows how, by responsibly negotiating through mutually satisfying guidelines, couples can cocreate successful, deeply fulfilling, loving relationships."
-- Linda Bloom, coauthor of 101 Things I Wish I Knew When I Got Married
"This book has a crucial role in people's lives -- whether in a marital relationship, extended family, or close friendships. The most valuable insight is that you have a right to your emotional reality and that others have realities of their own. It is not a matter of 'right or wrong' but of listening with both your head and heart to reach understandings."
-- Barry Mccarthy, coauthor of Enduring Desire
