Wake Up Or Break Up - Book Review


Wake Up or Break Up - 8 Crucial Steps to Strengthening Your Relationship
By: Leonard Felder
Publisher: Rodale Books (May 6, 2005)

Wake Up or Break Up- 8 Crucial Steps to Strengthening Your Relationship is so positive and so direct that you feel quite comfortable reading Dr. Felder's advice. You find yourself saying, "Oh my goodness, that's what I do." You never feel defensive or attacked, and neither will your partner. It is safe to pass this book on for reading and sharing.

Felder reminds us that there are warning signs when a relationship is in trouble and that it is up to individuals and their partners to recognize and acknowledge the signs. The next step is to start repairing the damage before the relationship is beyond repair. This is where Dr. Felder shines, he give real case scenarios with everyday problems. He discusses others who come with your partner as part of your union--friends, family, an ex-spouse.

This book is divided by steps instead of chapters. Step One starts with what Dr. Felder calls The Four Imbalancers: The Unintentional Bulldozer, The Martyr, The Unilateral Decision-Maker and The Nice Person Who Reaches The Breaking Point. These titles need no explanation--you may already see yourself. Step Eight offers advice on how to keep your repaired relationship strong.

Dr. Felder asks:

What would it be like if you and your partner became excellent listeners on a daily basis? For example, think back through the months or years you have known your partner and recall the times when the two of you talked like best friends who truly cared about each other. What did it feel like to have a soul mate who was 100 percent there for you? Wouldn't it be great to have that sense of deep connection again in your conversations?

Wake Up or Break Up- 8 Crucial Steps to Strengthening Your Relationship is more than a quick-fix guide for couples, it is a guide to understanding yourself and your mate. Highly recommended.
