Most Helpful

At least it was informative.

The narration was distracting, in that the narrator did "voices" to differentiate the various people's quotations. The voices were less bothersome than the characterizations - speaking slower or squeekier. The material is decidedly dry. I do not recommend it, nor will I listen to it again unless under duress.

Wonderful information for all relationships

Any additional comments?

I have never considered myself one for open relationships, but know so many people who do I gave it a try. The book was fantastic. The author talked about various emotions that come up, how to identify them, how to address them with yourself or partner(s) and this is wonderful information whether your in mono or poly relationship. I found myself taking notes that I refer back to with regularity. Great read for people wanting to communicate better in any relationship. Also available in audio book which is my preferred method of reading.
