About this Book
This is a "how to" book. The reader is offered a focused way to deal with one critical issue at a time rather than sort endlessly through the whole messy bundle of emotional pros and cons. If your partner can't even see what it is about him that makes you want to get out, it's time to get out; If it never was very good, it'll never be very good. And threaded through the book, which is written in a sympathetic, chatty, accessible style, are validating anecdotes that dramatize how other people have experienced and responded to the same problems the reader is going through.
