The Dance Of Intimacy is more of a work-book than a self-help book. If you're really looking to get pro-active in your relationships, you need to read this! I have flown through other self-help books in less than two days, but this one took me almost two weeks, because there is so much to process, reflect, and put into action. I suggest keeping a journal close while you read, in order to jot down the questions, answers, and ideas that the book will evoke.

I am so glad this book found its way to me!! A very amazingly written and deep study for relational ruts and how to focus and move past them with steadfastness and clarity. Very very thankful for this thoughtful and thought provoking book!! Lovely treasure!

A wonderful book on dealing with stuck relationships, as well as dealing with the past that may be affecting our choices and keeping us in our current situation. It is about far more than the title suggests. The book gets more helpful with later chapters, I personally found much insight in chapter five.
