    Comments about ACT With Love:

    This book was very useful at a challenging time in our marriage. We had been together for 5 years and married for two more and this book taught us many things we simply did not know about relationships and marriage. It made it all make sense and helped us refocus on wh we were together.

            Comments about ACT With Love:

            It's so easy to lose your way in a relationship. ACT With Love describes easily and in a non judgemental way how this is possible and offers great advice on how to get your relationship back on track. Even if your partner is not willing, the advice can easily be applied to any situation with people you come into contact or have a relationship with.
