Publisher's Summary

This groundbreaking audiobook from the best-selling authors of Getting the Love You Want and co-authors of Giving the Love that Heals is the first to address the biggest unexplored issue facing couples today: Most of us are better at giving love than accepting it.
In this audiobook, Harville Hendrix and Helen LaKelly Hunt, co-creators of Imago Relationship Therapy, offer a definitive guide to breaking the shackles of self-rejection and embracing the love our partners offer. Receiving Love is a very personal audiobook for Drs. Hendrix and Hunt, and much of their own journey is the inspiration for it.
Drawing on their renowned expertise, the wide clinical experience of hundreds of Imago therapists, and their own personal experience, the authors are able to offer detailed guidance on how to conquer the problems that come from self-rejection and embrace the gifts that are abundant in every person's life, if only we knew how to accept them. With its groundbreaking theory, challenging processes, and inspiring examples, this audiobook holds the key to loving relationships that last.

Interesting Theory

The author talk of how a relationship is a place where you find healing from your past [childhood]. Very interesting points and some things were enlightening, however the authors only cover part of the realm of topics that make for a good relationship and I'm not convinced that they truly spelled out how to "Receive Love". Worth a listen however.

Food for those in the world starving.

This is book is what I've needed in my life, more than any other. Listening to the authors read it made me realize I've been starving for good food for a long, long time. I have never allowed beautiful women to love me, even tho they have tried over and over. My parents were at times very critical of me, and I didn't understand why, other than to believe I wasn't good enough to be loved by anyone. The world was at times very critical of me, for being a man, a white man, a college graduate, a physics graduate, an ethical man, an unemployed man, an old man, a fat man, a man with PTSD from my military service. I felt no one could possibly love me. And, I struck back. I hated others for having so little understanding and kindness in their intelligence. I needed to read this book to put the pieces of my life together.
