An "A Ha" Book
Philip Munching and Dr. Bernie Katz have a winner in "Actually, It Is Your Parents' Fault." In this enlightening volume, they explain the relationship between the development of our personalities and our adult decision making. They make application to the dynamics available in marriage, but the material in the book can be applied to every avenue of life and living with others.
This book will help the novice understand the source of our personalities, how they determine our behavioral needs as we mature, and how they hinder and help our relationships with others along the way. Well written, clearly developed, and wonderfully read, this book will be useful to everyone wishing to improve their relationships with others.

This book was awful! I was hoping for something insightful... but got 6 hours of pure, unadulterated Freudianism. Sure they call it "psychodynamics" now, but it's still the same pseudoscientific nonsense. This book will ask you to keep and interpret dream diaries, take Freudian slips as revealing great internal truths, and insist that everything you do in life is driven by your Unconscious. Literally, this book is about interpreting your dreams to figure out what you suppressed into your unconscious as a child, and how those suppressed memories are destroying your relationships.
If you believe in Freud, you might enjoy this book. Otherwise, seriously, look elsewhere.
