Great content, great narration

Not only has the content of this book radically changed how I view the world (for the better I do believe), but the narration is really superb.

Good - with one minus in the end

Very good when it comes to Relationships

but

almost retracted a star ⭐ when Sue in the end went into a more 'general life-view' topic and said:

'compassion can be learned from the bible, KORAN & buddhism'

I invite her to get a deeper knowledge on the topic of Mohammed & the koran, before making such claims, on a topic she knows little about.

Great content, really struggled with the narration

The content in this audio book is really good, but I found it really difficult to listen to because of the style of narration. I realise that this is a very subjective opinion, and others may enjoy the way it's presented. I found the narrator's attempts at animating the male and female dialogue to feed into really irritating stereotypes, and I regularly had to turn it off mid chapter because it was really grating on my nerves. i stuck with it because the content is good, but I'll have to get a hard copy and read it without the "colour" to actually grasp the content and advice properly.

Hard to listen to, but worth every minute

Warning: this book is an emotional roller-coaster. It’s not for the faint of heart. On the contrary, it’s for anyone brave enough to want to truly understand the dynamics of their relationships, and who is prepared to listen and be changed as a result.

I knew a fair amount about attachment theory before listening to this book, but hearing it put into practice in the context of real relationships (and brilliantly narrated, by Helen Keeley, who has a real gift for conveying difficult emotions) has been a game-changer for me, translating what was merely an academic understanding into something visceral and real. I cried. A lot. There were powerful moments of “Oh my god, that’s me they’re talking about”.

There are a few passages of self-promotion about “the new science of love” that made me think “yeah, yeah, get on with it” and I found the last chapter a bit self-indulgent, but the meat of the book is invaluable and I recommend it without reservation to anyone wishing to understand their relationships and themselves in a deeper way.

Hold Tight for an emotional roller coaster:)

Insightful, inspiring, provoking of both thoughts and emotions. Gave me the ability to analyse my own behaviour and responses . Has hopefully equipped me with some tools to try and rebuild and nurture my marriage.

You need this book!

Wether you are in a long term relationship or just starting out, there are skills and insights in this book that can help you. Even if you don’t think you need help. Probably more so. This book can help you back to better, stronger love and help you maintain it. Dont wait untill it’s too late. Very, very uplifting.

Dissapointed

As an experienced clinician, I am very well informed about Attachment theory and am very keen to learn more about how to help clients in relationships using attachment based skills. However, definitely the style of narration and perhaps some parts of the writing style, I find very off putting. It comes accross as a novel, the narration aimed at showing the acting skills/ skills at narrating different characters. - nót as a book with skills that contains stories of real people, aimed for real people to apply. The hard copy may be different.

Overall good book, annoying narration

The book iitself is fine, although feels superficial. It’s ok for couples therapy where none of the partners has a decent dose of personality dysfunction, in particular narcissistic personality structure where these techniques could potentially make a vulnerable partner even more so. It assumes both parties are invested in the relationship equally, often not the case. So it feels somewhat superficial to me. The female narrator does the most annoying, pathetic, weak female voice impersonification that was difficult to listen to. I am surprised Sue Johnston allowed it to be released as such. I certainly wouldn’t have had it been my book!
