Reviews - What do our customers think?
|If a husband will use this book correctly, it can bring huge change in a marriage May 20, 2007|
|This book isolates a wonderful concept concerning the "dance" of fear that couples get into. One spouse says or does something which pushes fear buttons in the other spouse. This causes a negative reaction of words or actions.. and the dance begins.|
The solution is for one of the two parties to step out of the dance.
This is a wonderful illustration and concept. If a husband will read this book and take the responsibility to step out of the dance, then a marriage can go from bad to glad in a short time.
This is not a good book for abusive men to read though. Why? Abusive men will use anything to abuse, even knowledge. The truth uncovered in this book is powerful. It can bring GREAT healing in a relationship where a husband is committed to being the one to step out of the dance first.
If a man is abusive, he will use this idea against his wife. He will do things that he KNOWS are going to hurt his wife; when she reacts negatively, he will tell her that she is letting him push her buttons and that her negative reaction is her fault - that SHE needs to get hold of her emotions and that SHE needs to step out of the dance.
Since women generally buy books on marriage, I will address wives: If your husband is basically a good guy, but you find yourselves in arguements - then this book is a gold mine. On the other hand, if your husband is manipulative, controlling or abusive, then read this book yourself, but keep it away from him. I was an abusive husband and I used information like this to further abuse my wife, Kathy.
After I was healed of being manipulative, controlling and abusive, and became a great husband, this book added WONDERFUL insights to help me be a source of life to my wife. (Still married to Kathy after 23 years - ten bad ones and 13 great ones!)
If your husband is the manipulative, controlling or abusive type, check out our two books: they are written just for you and your husband to read, learn from, be healed and see a miraculous change in your marriage.
Keep the DNA of Relationships on hand and ask your husband to read it after he has read our two books and begun a transformation from selfish heel to loving, nurturing husband! Click on these links to check out our two books after your order The DNA of Relationships. Here are the links:
The Man of Her Dreams The Woman of His!
The Man of Her Dreams The Woman of His 2 - Livin' It and Lovin' It! (Volume 2)
After you and your husband read our two books, and then he reads DNA, follow that up with reading ALL of the rest of Dr. Smalley's books. Marriage is a lifetime journey of growth. Dr. Smalley has written some of the best to help you. Another fabulous book to read in the beginning of recovery is Discovering The Mind Of A Woman: The Key To Becoming A Strong And Irresistible Husband Is...

|Wonderful read Apr 10, 2007|
|Absolutely a must read. This book opened me up mentally, emotionally and spiritually. |
|Divorced or Remarried? There's Help Here Apr 3, 2007|
|As a busy family counselor and divorced single mom, I recommend this book if you are divorced, remarried or considering remarriage. If you're a single parent like me, I also recommend another great new book, see below. Gary Smalley writes with clear, understandable ideas that will help you with all of your relationships.|
Barbara Sheldon, M.S.W.
I also highly recommend: Happily Remarried: *Making Decisions Together *Blending Families Successfully* Building a Love That Will Last and a wonderful new book for single parents, Raising Great Kids on Your Own: A Guide and Companion for Every Single Parent
|Great Information Mar 29, 2007|
|Excellent information, great speaking voice, practical application, I really enjoyed it. I would probably consider this a "must have" if you are interested in the tools of conflict resolution. Very applicable to any relationship; work, children, friends, and not just the marriage relationship. |
|Great Book Mar 10, 2007|
|We are currently viewing the video session that goes along with the book in our Sunday School Class. Dr. Smalley and his son Dr. Smalley do a really good job of allowing you to see yourself in the situations while reading the book. Recommend for anyone who are in any type of relationship especially a marriage.|
