Publisher's Summary

The internationally best-selling author of Too Soon Old, Too Late Smart, Dr. Gordon Livingston here helps readers discover fulfilling happiness. By recognizing and understanding particular character traits in ourselves and others, we can all learn who best to love - and who best to avoid.
As in his previous books, here are Dr. Livingston's trademark gifts - an unerring sense of what is important, and what Elizabeth Edwards has characterized as "his unapologetic directness and his embracing compassion" - again deployed to provide listeners with a much-needed alternative to the trial-and-error learning that makes wisdom such an expensive commodity.

Critic Reviews

"As gracefully written as Erich Fromm's classic The Art of Loving, How to Love recognizes the things in love thatlast, and may alter the way you look at others and yourself." ( Boston Globe)

Honest and right to the point

This book saved my marriage. I was bored with my marriage and was thinking of possibly having an affair and divorcing my husband. I felt so guilty and I was looking for some answers, which is how I found this book. After listening to this book and hearing the cut and dry advice from Dr. Livingston, I took responsiblity for the damage I had done during the years of my marriage and decided to make necessary changes. I realized that my own character flaws were responsible for most of my problems. It opened up honest communication between me and my husband and we're working towards saving our marriage. I believe we can definitely find the "better" after the "worse" if we work at it. I feel this way because of the shift I made in my thinking and my actions after listening to this book. This book is only for people who are willing to be honest with themselves.

Super- So helpful

Great information, insights and advice for many areas of our lives. This should be required reading for all. If it was, I think we'd have less problems within and among ourselves and others. Perfect narrator for this book. I'm grateful to have listened to it and will again- and again.
