Publisher's Summary

Everyone struggles with jealousy, but not everyone understands the risks. Left unchecked, jealousy leads to unnecessary drama, stress, and abuse. For some people it can even end an otherwise promising relationship. Even for people who understand these facts, dealing with these emotions is difficult, so jealously ends up controlling their relationship and ultimately their lives. If you forget everything else, just remember this; understanding and managing jealousy is essential if you want your relationship to thrive. I've never met anyone who enjoyed feeling jealous. Everyone would avoid it if they could. So why do most people continue to struggle? Well, sometimes our jealous patterns are so deeply rooted within us that they can be difficult to untangle without some help. So what can you do? You can take advantage of the simple techniques for understanding and managing jealousy - both in yourself and your partner. Jealously needlessly damages so many relationships, so this book is here to help you understand this devious emotion so you can take control of it!

Insensitive and unhelpful

I purchased this book as someone who is struggling with jealously that is hurting my relationship and sincerely seeking to improve myself. I found the tone of this book to be patronizing, demeaning and entirely counterproductive for anyone who is looking to this book for help with an issue that already has them feeling ashamed and weak. The author can not seem to go 20 words without referring to this book's target audience in a scolding tone as "insane" "clingy" and "ridiculous". This book reads as if it was written by a man in the 1950's rather than a woman in 2016. The amazon description of this book states it will "give you a huge toolbox for dealing with emotional struggles". I find that the content of this book offers nothing more than a lay person's advice on how to not be jealous. The money spent to read this book would have been better spent on five minuets with an actual mental health professional. I was not shocked when I searched the author's biography and found her credentials listed as a "social scientist" and "personal coach", titles people like to use when they have no actual credentials in the field they claim expertise.
