As for me, well, I already held all of the beliefs expressed in this book. And to have everything presented as "you don't know about any of this, let me reveal to you the secrets of good relationships" just didn't fly with me, since I've grown up knowing all this. That's not to say the ideas presented in this book are bad, like I said I already hold them. It's just the way they're presented seemed a little condescending. Do I recommend this book? There's some good stuff in it. Do I think it'll drastically change your view of relationships?
I can't say. It didn't for me, but then again I'm an oddity. Note: someone I respect gave me this book to read, and that's why I did. Feb 09, Brandi Peek rated it really liked it. I would really say that I would rate this a 4.
It would have been great if someone had explained all the ideas and concepts to the early me in the way that Andy Stanley communicates it. He does a good job of being blunt and straightforward about love and all the wrong choices we tend to make based on wrong thinking.
I also think he communicates this in a I would really say that I would rate this a 4. The book can seem repetitive at times, but I think that is the point. I feel like his insight and advice reaches far beyond a romantic love. It is relatable to all relationships. I would highly recommend this book. Obviously, the content is similar to the sermon series he does, but it expands areas that needed expanding. Stanley is very forthright and blunt which I found both helpful and intimidating.

Jun 27, Sarah rated it it was amazing. I was surprised and happy to see that it goes over all of the facets of relationships. Dec 17, Caitlin Dean rated it did not like it. I got about three chapters in and I'm giving up. There's something about this book that is really bothering me. I think it's his tone of voice through his lectures. I was already wary reading a Christian based book on dating, when I myself don't align with a lot of Christian values.

Great read! Sep 14, Maui Rochell rated it really liked it Shelves: self-helpchristian-booksnon-fictionebook. A good but not-so-recommended read if you're not matured enough to take it. Nowadays, many of us are not taught how to handle relationships properly.
We just dive into it, secretly hoping things will be alright in the process. And so most of us, leave those relationships with broken heart and wounded souls. Is it always supposed to be like that?
This book is a good guide and an eye-opener. Dec 24, Rachel rated it liked it Shelves: reading-plan. I would give this book 3.
