Great book. Got through it all with many lightbulb moments. I was coming off a breakup from a long distance relationship. Aaron Beck's way of looking at the positive things in the other person helped reestablish respect for both of us rather than see their bad points. We're all imperfect!

What disappointed you about Love Is Never Enough?
The book did not seem very concise, did not flow well for me, and seemed about 4 hours too long.
What was most disappointing about Aaron T. Beck MD’s story?
There are so many different communication examples that I really had a hard time trying to make connections between everything. You also need to listen to 8 hours of problem identification before getting to solutions. I would have preferred to have problems followed by solutions.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
I am not very pick about narrators, but he was too feminine for my tastes. I kept think of the Stuart Smalley character.
Any additional comments?
I will freely admit I am not the perfect husband. There were probably 3 or 4 examples from the book that I went "Oh", that is me, and I will use it to improve our relationship. The section on how to be supportive & not totally impartial was the most useful topic for me. Most of the book I found to be a slog that did not strike a chord for me, which made it tough to finish.
My wife, on the other hand, is really enjoying it and seems to connect with it much more than I did. She has some very strong automatic responses, and is learning to see things from a different viewpoint. I am sure she would rate the book much higher than I did.
