Reviewer: L. Murdock

This book is EXCELLENT and I am recommending it to everyone I know. It's clear way of describing the dynamic of what and why we repeat and how to fix, these really damaging mistakes are clearly laid out. I have a large body of knowledge from reading over the last 20 years and this is a great book, concisely practical and very specific. I love lots of authors on this subject and this gal is at the top of my list for now. It is useful for any type of relationship. It made me feel "normal" while not excusing bad behavior. Well done Carolyn...

Here's a toast to the eighth dumbest mistake: banging your secretary in the supply room at the company "Holiday Party," though I must say it didn't really feel like a mistake.

I found that this book to be a very realistic explanation of both positive and negative instinctual behaviors people exhibit in relationships. It not only helps you identify the weaknesses in your relationship, but it helps you identify the your own personal hang-ups to facilitate you in your own self discovery if you are serious about changing your own behaviors to have a healthy, loving, and fulfilling relationship.

Excellent book if you care to maintain a good relationship. The chapter on Communication is especially good and suggestion to improve how to talk with your mate helped me a lot.


Very Good! A wake-up call!

This book caught my attention! Find out if you are controlling or dependant. Are you trying to chase your partner? Are you wondering why he/she is pushing you away? If so, then the problem could be YOU! You need to be happy w/yourself before you can get love from someone else! This book covers all the bases. My mate wanted more freedom. Well, I tried to control my mate. Saying "I love you" too soon can scare anyone away! I had to give my partner space! But, you can only give your partner space if, and only if, you feel confident in yourself! If you need balance in your relationship, then this book is for you!


A life-changing must-read for anyone who cares about anyone.

Years of marriage counseling for about 15 bucks. "Seven Dumbest" is filled with useful help for improving your relationship with your current or future significant other. It turns out that advice for "big R" Relationships is useful for "little r" relationships as well. Very readable. Give copies to your friends so that they too will know how to work on a rewarding, balanced Relationship.
