WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING
"A compassionate and truthful approach to marriage that allows couples—and families—to move beyond the clash of egos to expansive love and joy. We highly recommend this wonderful book."
—Hugh and Gail Prather, authors of Notes to Each Other and I Will Never Leave You
"I very much appreciate Walters' vision of marriage as a means of bringing out the best in each partner. In the past, most marriages have been comfort-oriented, not expansion-oriented. Partners need to aspire in themselves, and to inspire one another, to live at their highest potential."
—Susan M. Campbell, PhD, author of The Couple's Journey and Beyond the Power Struggle
"Having taught marriage courses in colleges and universities for thirty years. I regard this as the best short marriage book I know. Its soft, loving, teaching, caring tone impressed me very much. The content is excellent, the writing is excellent, all of which adds up to a successful formula for a number one book."
