Review:

ByIrene Conlanon July 13, 2011 Format: Paperback This is a little book with a gigantic message. I say it's ""little"" because it's small enough to fit in your hands comfortably - and that's a good thing because you won't want to put it down. Before you begin to read it, make a commitment to yourself to read it thoughtfully and reflectively. You will have many moments of deep self discovery and insights into why some of your relationships failed so miserably and why some lasted for a while but never really ""got off the ground."" You will gain valuable insights into how to help a relationship move forward and become what Orlav describes in phase four as ""Relating to your relationship as a living, breathing, life force in and of itself."" Orlov posits that there are four phases to a relationship: Fantasy, Self Discovery, Personal Transformation and Relational Transformation. Each phase has its own issues and, while they are experienced in progression, they sometimes overlap. She demonstrates each one with a dynamic story of a couple and how they dealt with the issues of that phase - sometimes successfully and sometimes not so successfully. You will wonder at times how she knew about you and a particular significant other because she seems to describe you and the relationship to a T. And, when you read the last page you will wish you had read it years and a number of relationships earlier. This book should be read by everyone who wants a truly loving, lasting relationship. It should be read together by every couple planning to get married and the workbook should be completed and reviewed together - before the wedding. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to be in a mutually satisfying and loving relationship. Doesn't that cover all of us? --Amazon.com

ByR.J.K. Kendleon January 26, 2011 Format: Paperback The Pathway To Love is an outstanding guide to building strong and intimate relationships in your life. To help the reader understand the four distinct phases of a relationship, author Julie Orlov lets us peek into the lives of four different couples- each couple in a different phase of relationship. From stage one -object fantasy, to the fourth stage of relational transformation, you will recognize yourself and gain valuable insight that will equip you with all the tools you need for relationship building. At the end of each story, the author reviews what we have gleaned from the couples and ways to navigate relational hurdles. The Pathway To Love is a unique answer to help quality us for the very rewarding and serious business of human intimacy. Successful relationship will be tolerant, supportive, curious, eager and honest. I give this book a hearty cheer and found it not only informative but very enjoyable. The Pathway to Love: Create intimacy and transform your relationships through self-discovery --Amazon.com
