Concise and well done

First of all this book defines relationship based on compatibility not just love. This is an important distinction, and the author does a great job of building her case, explaining myths prevalent in our culture and then step-by-step guides/tips. She really gets into explaining how to find a person who is compatible with you beyond just looks and the superficial trappings that can get us in so much trouble when seeking long-term commitment and real love. This book is also written in a gender-neutral way for man or woman, whatever sexual preference, so that you focus on the core of her message and not caught up in gender stereotypes. Well done! I would recommend this to anyone who is serious about going to the next level in taking responsibility for their love life or working on their existing love life, as she is adept at communicating to singles and couples already involved with each other.

Provides useful information

I wasn't sure about this author, but this is the second book of hers that I've read and found them both worthwhile. She has some solid suggestions for what to consider when getting into a relationship.

This book is very helpful. I enjoy it a lot

I think the author has a great point of view of what love is and her theories on relationship, love and lust, and the reasons we stay in relationships. And of course, why we put ourselves in relationships in first place. The author is easy to relate to and I often felt that she is talking about my relationship (current and past relationship).

Overall, I think the author had great concepts on love and relationship. I think she was right on the money about the way women think. This book was good for the modern world, relevant to the dating world. The author was helpful for single and married individuals- if you are looking for someone or to fix your relationship. She helped you to make your own decision on your relationship. She gave you a better understanding on relationships. I really enjoyed this book, it helped work on myself and in my relationship. I would recommend this book to anyone.

Super Helpful

I broke up with my bf 3 months ago, after about 14 months together and I have cried nearly every day. I love him so much, but I’m the one who broke up. I’ve regretted it every day, thinking that if I had just tried a little harder, we could have worked through our issues. I was even considering paying $300 to have a coach help me get my ex back.

Then I read this book. This is my 3rd book on the subject and this one finally gave me the validation I needed that I did do the right thing. We had chemistry, we had friendship, we took things slow, we were kind to each other, we did so much right. But we were not compatible in some fundamental ways that I had never thought of, and he has 6 of the nine fatal flaws that will kill a relationship, including an enmeshed family ruled by a very controlling mother who did not want me in the family. I learned from the book that there could be a chance for us if he worked hard on himself and worked through these things that make him unavailable in a relationship, but the odds are that if this happens at all, it won’t happen on our timeline.

So, I’m finally letting him go. And I feel this book will help me do a much better job of finding an actual viable partner.

Outstanding

This describes me to a T, Why I have had failed relationships and felt like love has eluded me for so many years. Recently divorced, I have realized that I need to work on the person I am. Barbara's experiences are very helpful. Thank you!

Very well written and extremely insightful.

Absolutely loved it and didn't realize how many patterns I was repeating! Loved that it walks you through the good side and the bad side. While describing each good and bad traits to embrace or learn to let go of.

Valuable Information in a Concise Manner

This book was recommended to me years ago by a therapist and I now see why. It is rich with substance and useful information that is still relevant even thirty years after its initial publishing. I appreciate how direct and concise the author is; she is straight to the point without a lot of excess fluff. If you are looking for the tools and guidance on how to choose the right partner and build a meaningful relationship- you will find this book to be productive, insightful and rewarding.

Basic Principles of Compatibility

This book has a lot of good guidelines and concepts that I think are helpful for romantic relationships. I wish she had gone more in-depth regarding her criteria for certain areas to really grasp the points she was trying to get across. Over all I think it takes on a healthy way to objectively look at what your true objectives are with dating.

Very black and white view of the world

This book provides a very black and white view of the world dismissing the complexities of relationships by providing numerous checklists of why a relationship won’t work. It doesn’t provide information on how to work on building a relationship but instead gives reader checklists of why it won’t work.

Not complete version

I have listened 50min so far and I have the PDF in-front of me, it’s skipping so many pages. And it hasn’t been mentioned that this is not a complete version.
Am so disappointed.
