Book Overview

How couples can restore trust and repair love relationships

Even the strongest relationship can be eroded by common, everyday breaches of trust. A small lie about a purchase, a cover-up for a forgotten birthday--each takes a bite out of trust. Over time, intimate confidences are weakened and the foundation of trust begins to crumble. It is Dr. Block's firm belief that when couples feel emotionally safe with each other, their relationship...

BROKEN PROMISES, MENDED HEARTS, provides answers to many questions concerning trust issues in love relationships. Dr. Block remains consistent in his ability to write with the reader in mind, and his compassionate approach to writing makes this book particularly helpful with such a delicate subject as dealing with one's "heart". He covers many topics such as: everyday events that break down trust, playing jealousy games, to the struggle with vulnerability. Through the use of questionnaires, Dr. Block encourages the reader to take an active approach to learning about their own relationship struggles. He ultimately helps the reader understand the mechanics behind their issues with a sensitive yet direct technique. GRAND APPLAUSE FOR DR. BLOCK!

The most helpful book I've read

This book helped me and my young wife go through a troubled period. Dr. Block's emphasis on maintaining and rejuvinating trust in the couple showed us the way to get along and reinvigorated our relationship. This book is a wonderful tool in any relationship, whether in trouble or not.

A Rare Find!

As a therapist working with couples for the past thirty years, I found this book to be one of the most helpful and inspiring. Trust...the loss of it and the repairing process, as Dr. Block poignantly shows us, is one of the most crucial issues. Dr. Block's clarity and wisdom as a clinician and as an author is to be commended.


Trust can be the one factor that can bind or erode a couple's relationship. Dr. Block's excellent book confronts this issue by recognizing triggers that interfere and destroy that trust. Through the recognition of one's past and the learning to separate it from the present,as well as developing a more forthright style of communication, Dr. Block's book leads a couple in a most useful and positive direction that can only correct, improve, and enhance their chances for a successful relationship. An important book that is extremely instructive and useful for all couples to read. It is very highly recommended.
