a must read for anyone in a relationship

This book has really helped me! If you or someone you know is struggling in their relationship buy them this book. The concept of taking a "time out" to be with yourself and improve yourself so that you can be a better person in your relationship is priceless advice. All of those folks in that danger zone of divorce or separation need the suggestions given in this book. The many exercises and examples that are offered by Buchicchio are things anyone can do to work on their conflict and create peace with their significant other. I highly recommend this book!!

a wonderful framework for couples working throught challenging times

this is a great book that offers a new and important way of looking at the issues that arise in any significant partner relationship. it is wonderful not only as a self-help book but also for mental health professionals doing couples work. It is easy to read and packed full of good ideas within the context of "taking space."

This book not only helps with your relationships but with who you are as a person.

This book gives you the framework to building a stronger relationship and at the same time can give you a more positive outlook on everyday life. If your relationship has come to an emotional stand-still, reading this book can help you re-establish a means of communication and cement a more positive foundation for interaction. I've purchased nine copies of the book and shared them with friends and family members, and have received only positive responses. Even those that think that they have a perfect relationship, there is still much to learn from simply reading this book.

An Optimistic Look at Relationships

I found "Taking Space" to be so helpful in my relationship. The subtitle "How to Use Separation to Explore the Future of your Relationship" sounds like the last step before divorce, but Mr. Buchicchio is actually very optimistic. He writes as if almost all couples where both parties are willing to let go of old, ineffective behavior patterns will find happiness and fulfillment without changing partners. The book contains helpful and thought-provoking exercises throughout, and reiterates common themes such as the importance of communication between partners. By returning to these common themes throughout the book, Mr. Buchicchio ensures that the reader will more easily understand and retain the important concepts presented. I highly recommend this book to everyone in a relationship, not only those having trouble.

My feelings on "Taking Space"

I feel a need to express my feelings on this great book "Taking Space" by Mr. Buchicchio. I can relate to it very much. So many couples are stuck between a rock and a hard place. Couples jump to either a seperation or divorce, or they just live iin misery with each other. This book, "Taking Space", is the alternative to figuring out what's really going on in their relationship. As far as i'm concerned, this book "Taking Space" can help couples decide which direction to take in their relationship. If any couple are having problems in their relationship, please read this book. John E. Palm Springs, CA
