Strongly recommend this book. The surface layer is just the beginning, this book introduced me to so many underlying themes and movements to the core structure of a relationship, that I am now aware of. Because of this book, I am able to understand my patterns of behavior as I approach relationships, and get my needs met in ways that are not self destructive. I am also able to deeply understand my partner, and where she is coming from.
I am a better person because of Pierce's book, and his coaching. I have learned to own my inner gold, and to be a fountain of happiness that I can share with other people. My cup is continuously full, and as I hit natural low points in my life, I know how to fill my cup back up. I get to enjoy relationships and the people in my life, instead of needing them which ultimately pushed people away from me.
What's missing from on-line dating experiences are valid and easy-to-use relationship assessment tools to help you more effectively sort through your prospects and partners. Though finding and meeting others through the internet is easier than ever before, you also need tools that are practical and immediately usable to navigate potential relationships. In other words, anyone can get into, be in, or get out of a relationship, but there are only a few that gather wisdom on the path. This reference guide will inspire you to initiate real conversations with those you hope to love, with less fear of negative consequences. As you increase your ability to compassionately and judiciously speak your own truth you will be transformed in the process. Knowing specifically what is working and not working (repeatedly) will free you to make better choices so that you can avoid participating in relationships in a way that leads to their failure. Relationships no longer have to be something that happen to you and instead can become opportunities to understand how your pre-existing beliefs about them are working for you or against you. As you read through this book, my wish is that you increase your commitment to self-care while trusting that you too can improve your ability to make mutual love and respect a prerequisite in your life. Warm regards, Pierce
