  • Excellent book! I read this from my preferred reading list from a course I'm taking in Correctional Ministries: Case Management and Mentoring in Reentry. It steps you through the very beginning of the formation of your attachments from infancy through your formative years. It provides insight into why we are the way we are and how we can change. It takes you through the four attachment types (ambivalent, avoidant, disorganized as the insecure types and then secure), how they respond to certain s [...]


  • This book helps me with responding in a loving, nurturing way instead of being defensive. With my attachment style in mind, I am able to choose the path of recovery rather than leading down the road to more pain. Great book!


  • This book was a 3.5. a good book to help people with relationship problems, parenting and marriage being the most discussed. I found their theory interesting but not world changing. There are certainly things I will take from the book and try to incorporate in my own relationships.



  • This book is worth the read, but it is definitely a bit dry. The writers are doctors after all; not writers. lol The book not only focuses on your attachments with your loved ones, but also encourages attachment spiritually. That wasn't really what I was looking for, so I skipped over those parts. However, I did find the first half of the book to be interesting and helpful in understanding why people act the way they do in relationships.FYI!!:There is another book called "Why We Do What We Do" b [...]


  • This book changed the way I look at relationship. It explained why I and other respond the way they do in relationship. Amazing book.It also helps you remove yourself from situations and find what the real issues are in arguments, and help the person who is upset to feel comforted. Even if the person who is upset is you.


  • Definitely needed by some but it was required reading for a college class. I'll never read it again. I got tired of all the attachment talk. It gets old fast. Most self-help books could be condescend into 2 chapters. I haven't found one yet that didn't spend the remaining chapters just restating what they said in the first two chapters some other way. It was a hard read.


  • A very clear, accessible introduction to attachment theory, one which outlines the basic steps one should take to overcome an insecure attachment style. Like many self-help books I've read, I found the anecdotes tedious and skimmed through most of them. And I skipped the God sections entirely. Nonetheless, I found this to be a very well-written and helpful read.


  • I was hesitant to read this until one of our staff care workers recommended it to me. I was glad I read it. It helped me gain a clearer understanding on how I relate to people in community and how others relate to each other. Worth the time.


  • Very insightful reading. It was difficult to get through because of the nature of the book, but if approached with an open, honest mindset, it can reap many fruitful benefits in one's personal life and relationships.


  • Although this is a textbook for my class and did not have to read the whole book, I did just that. It was a great clear book on attachment and how that affects us as children and then as adults growing up. I recommend this book.


  • Attachment Theory comes alive in this book. The writing style is very down to earth, so therapists as well as laypeople will get a lot out of it.



  • This book was so insightful and interesting. Only book that I've read that talks about our relationships with others and our relationship with God in such a insightful and helpful way.
