While professing to be a guidebook for the journey of love, the route laid out here is one of brambles, fog, and lost directions. It is unclear whether this book is intended to be a self-improvement guide, a relationship builder, or a gathering of international mythology. Whatever its intent, none is achieved. Gurian, a therapist who leads workshops on intimate partnership, presents his theories in stages and seasons, beginning each section with a mythological tale. He then interweaves the tale with explanations of the seasons and their impact on people and their relationships, resulting in a jumble of people and situations, real and imaginary. The author further muddies the waters with the excessive use of "he/she" and other compound pronouns. Not recommended.?Priscilla Davis Dann, Gates Mills P.L., Cleveland
