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."

Very encouraging and God centered

Many times when you seek advise on dealing with difficult people you are encouraged to leave the relationship because it is hopeless. You can't change them and there is little hope for change. You can change you and your reaction to them and through scripture and wise Counsel John Townsend gives you hope for healing, as well as insight on ways you are contributing to the problem. He offers help in formulating a plan to make life better for both of you.

Must have for all Buttons...

It's a good book. Biblical principles. This book was recommended to me by my therapist. I'm glad to know I'm not alone in this area. But, I think that me and my button pusher (mother) just need to be separated entirely. This book will be extremely useful to most though.

Shallow Personality Formulas

The narrating is well done, that is the end of the positives. Like a bad movie that you hope will turn a corner and improve but doesn't.

The author runs off countless overgeneralized personality types that lack insight and truthfulness. He rubs this in with a shallow sense of spiritual understanding also, by saying people are sinners for having a rough edge to their manner.

If you are after substance and genuine results, this isn't for you.
