    Wow I read this book in one day and all I can say iswow Definitely a keeper and definitely one I would highly recommend to all The author conveys her point in a very simple manner that brings a strong message You deserve the love you desire and when you're not receiving it it's okay to walk away However she doesn't just focus on the short comings of the other partner but challenges the reader to view their own personal issues with self esteem and guilt Combining stories that are easy to relate to with good old fashioned common sense Deal Breakers is definitely in the top 5 of my Relationship books

    You know all those uestions you ask yourself when you are dating someone? Well this book really helped me sort out answers to them So I definitely recommend it to anyone who is in a relationship or looking to learn about relationshipsJust knowing what I picked up from the book helped me to decide what my answers are which gives me a great jumping off point towards realizing what is really going on when I feel like I'm missing something The information about the give and take and how things get agreed upon and what makes a healthy relationship and how to handle things and what to do if it's you or what do do if it's him ect was all to the point and usefulI did think that the writer was a little comma happy and found a few mistakes but overall the tone of the book was a great balance between actually being comprehensive and informative while maintaining a friendly funny and easy to read tone

    This book is great because it helps you step out of the love bubble where you are blind and think he'll get over it one day or he'll change and allows you to view him for what he really is Also gives you the tools to decide whether to work on the relationship because you love him or walk away Haven't finished it yet but so far it's really helped me clear my mind and step away from the oh woes me to the idea that I still have my own life and can choose the path I want to take

    Refreshingly Simple AdviceIf you want clear cut examples information and decision making strategies this book is for you There is plenty of humor without sugar coating the real problems that some relationships face I believe that you will truly know what you SHOULD do for you by the end of this book but whether you do it or not is obviously still up to you

    Read this on the recommendation of a friend of mine who is currently facing divorce It's interesting how the different personalities are defined to reinforce the idea of a deal breaker I don't however believe that every person fits into their specific boxes My husband for example portrays pieces of several of the different personality descriptions no one single description that sort of fits ranking any higher or lower than the others So the information is good the deal breakers and definitions used to work on them or walk away from them are definitely things to keep in mind and consider but I don't believe the personalities are always as black and white as they may sometimes be described The lines do blur and if you're in a situation where you need this type of information it's best for you to adapt as needed for your situation; don't think it has to come straight out of the box for it to work

    Deal BreakersReally gives you sound advice and an ulterior perspective to take into consideration when you feel stuck on a relationship merry go round Practical and to the point gently but bluntly Puts into words what is being felt inside when you know something just isn't right but have a hard time defining what it is and being able to determine what action to take Love the author's attitude as far as that you don't have to feel guilty for taking actions to have a happy life after allyou only get one

    systematic examples of why relationships get in a rut and how women can identify why A lot of examples were about men but this book also helps women identify how they could also be the problem rather than their spouses I agree with Dr Marshallbefore anything in a relationship becomes a deal breaker you have to have a deal lack of deals is why many women are disrespected in relationships We need to change this

  8. Sarah Sarah says:

    wow a lot to think about this was a really good book for seeing problems in yourself as well as others and straightforwardly a word? advises you on the next step i think one of the best points dr marshall makes is that you need to be happy in this moment; constant looking towards the future is a big indicator that you're not happy NOW

    This was one of the easiest self help books I've read I find that most read like a research paper This was actually entertaining and I flew through it This wasn't much help in my life since there wasn't anything in here that I don't already know but I do enjoy these types of books for some reason
