Publisher's Summary

The person who pushes your buttons is likely someone who matters to you - a spouse, a parent, a boss, a fellow church member. Almost always this difficult person is connected to you by blood, love, faith, or money, so you can't just end the relationship without causing pain and upheaval in your life. Our friends and today's culture will often advise us to abandon such relationships quickly - to end this unpleasant chapter and get on with our lives. Psychologist and author Dr. John Townsend disagrees. "Your button-pusher is not someone you would easily and casually leave. You are intertwined at many levels. It is worth the trouble to take a look at the ways the relationship you had, and want, can be revived and reborn."

Total Misrepresentation!

NO WHERE in the audible review is this book listed as a DEVOUT Christian guide to dealing with difficult people nor are the author's fundamentalist beliefs even mentioned. However, 75% of this book is about God, bible verses and what "Jesus would do" parables. I am a spiritual person and do not mind references to God. Yet, the title and the review are incredibly misleading. Also, there are several instances where the advice provided is based less on research or best-practice therapy and more on the author's belief in "Gods Will for the Family."
