Glasser's ideas about relationships are straightforward, simple to follow, and spot-on. Anyone who's struggling with relationships, particularly with their teenage children, will find helpful information as long as they're willing to self-asses and take on making personal changes in their own behavior. I highly recommend this book. I think the theory works.
