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.
"Reading and following this book may well be the most precious gift you ever give not only to your partner, but also to yourself. I highly recommended it to those who wish to revitalize a floundering relationship as well as those who want to make a good relationship even better."
--Robert D. Zettle, Ph.D., associate psychology professor at Wichita State University and author of "ACT for Depression "
