We just gotta share with you this new review on Amazon of Too Good to Leave, Too Bad to Stay:
Phenomenal Read! - A True Relationship Diagnostic Analysis,
For the sake of brevity, I will describe this book and it’s impact in just a few sentences and with a limited set of adjectives.

My take-away from the book:
Not only does this book allow one to take an honest, laser-focus look at their partner but it also enables the reader to introspect and take a close look at themselves and the relationship as a whole. It provides the equivalent of a physician’s pre-operative and post-operative patient workup.
Whenever in doubt, reach for this book and you will discover your best next steps. You will obtain the resolution and peace that is necessary to move forward. In addition to my faith, this book has been my guiding light. It is the “relationship North Star”.
Enjoy and the best of luck to all. May you find the inspiration, clarity, and strength to live your best life.

This lapse in emotional energy can happen to us in our relationships, too. And it doesn’t always take much to bring it on — maybe just a period when you’re busy, irritated, distant, and disappointed with each other. Suddenly, cough, gasp, sputter, and the emotional energy you’ve had for your relationships has gone. Uh oh. Where do you go for gas when a relationship has run out of fuel and is just stuck there at the side of the road? (more…)
