A good primer for those of us who tend to believe what we're told about a person on the first date, who are charmed by someone's looks or style and gloss over all the red flags that are there from the very beginning!
I recently ended an engagement from a relationship that was initially very fulfilling but ended up being unfulfilling for both of us. I knew I needed to end the relationship, but the reasons for doing so weren't exactly clear to me. Reading this book I realized a multitude of mistakes that I made getting into the relationship in the first place and how I compounded those mistakes later.
The exercises in the book made things very clear and I now am aware of my bad habits in forming relationships and can also look for bad habits out of potential partners. It helped ease some of my heartache and I am now better prepared for finding that special someone and choosing her for the right reasons, not the wrong ones as was my trend in the past. I also have identified some things I need to work on myself that I wasn't fully aware of before.
I especially liked the compatibility rating exercise, made me realize how I was letting a couple areas of very strong compatibility overshadow many areas where we weren't compatible.
