5An eye-opener -Review by Dr. Morrie Kleinplatz
By Mr Jones
As a psychologist who has been practicing for over 35 years, I did not expect to find anything in this book that I did not already know. Much to my surprise and delight, I discovered that there are simple yet powerful techniques for changing the nature of the interaction patterns between oneself and others, and that most of these techniques were based on becoming more aware in ways that I had not considered before, either for myself or for my clients. Drs. Segal and Jaffe have made an important contribution to the literature on using emotional awareness to improve communication skills, and have done so from a unique and original perspective. This is must reading for therapists of all stripes, and for all those who have an interest in cultivating their interpersonal skills.

5Pleasant Surprise
By Amel R. Massa
I began reading this book as a favor to a friend. I ended up reading the book for myself and thanking my friend for the suggestion.

I am a Collaborative Attorney, a Mediator and a Litigator. I initially thought this book would give me tools to better understand my clients by looking for their patterns of emotional intelligence. I found myself, however, studying my own patterns. I quickly realized that by understanding my own patterns I will not only be better able to understand my clients, but I will be better able to understand myself in relationship to my clients. I see the possibility of an entirely new and expansive way of relating to and understanding my client's needs and interests.

I intend to keep this book close at hand to revisit Drs. Segal and Jaffe's simple but pointed and effective exercises on a regular basis. I highly recommend Drs. Segal and Jaffe's book to any professional who has an interest in understanding and relating to their clients' needs and interests in new and profound ways.

5Insight and Response to Relationship Challenges
By G. Weber
Dr. Segal's book offers an excellent, concrete introduction to understanding relationship challenges and effective responses to them. With the use of example situations to provide a base, she presents techniques to develop those responses. The book is very well organized and presented - I found that even with a quick first read I was able to gather considerable insight and guideposts for myself. The varied examples and the sensitivity to diverse personalities that might face similar challenges will make the book responsive to a wide variety of readers. While the book is likely to be of most help to those looking for solutions to their perceived struggles, the background and discussion should be generally useful in developing awareness and capabilities to ward off difficulties. However, in order to take full advantage of the background and tools presented in the book will require a focused time commitment.
