Comments about Passionate Marriage:
This book was recommended to me by a psychologist during couples counselling. If only I'd read this a couple of years into my marriage. This books shares many real life experiences of couples who have turned their relationships around by being individuals and true to themselves. Absolutely brilliant.
"This pioneering work opens whole new lines of thoughts and will benefit many couples." -- Bernie Zilbergeld, PhD, author of The New Male Sexuality "Of the many books I've read on the subject of sexuality and relationships, ?Passionate Marriage ?is far and away the best. It's at the top of my very short list of must-reads. It is brilliantly challenging and provocative, a book to be underlined, dog-eared, and carried around for weeks." -- Janet Carlson Freed "Schnarch takes the reader behind the scenes as couples describe similar feelings as well as their explicit sexual encounters during dramatic therapy sessions... [A] useful guide." -- Marty Dean Evenswold
