About the Author:

Dr. Robin Smith is a licensed psychologist, television personality and author, who appears regularly as an expert for The Oprah Winfrey Show. In addition to her private practice, Dr. Smith teaches as an adjunct professor at Eastern Baptist Theological Seminary. She lives in Philadelphia.

From AudioFile:

A Philadelphia psychologist and "Oprah" favorite offers a powerful observation: Too many women become invisible, dishonest, and insignificant so that they can work around deficits in their husbands. Smith's voice is calmly positive as she explains the importance of honesty--about what each person needs and what can realistically be provided. The wisdom in these ideas and in the author's voice will creep up on women who are hiding from painful truths in their marriages. The abridgment contains many practical suggestions, and the author's humble vocal tone provides balance to her direct writing style. The production comes with 275 printable questions one should ask a potential mate. T.W. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
