This book describes bad habits I formed over a lifetime.

After allowing an amazing relationship too become too scary to continue, I perpetrated behaviors that encouraged conflict which gave me justification for why I should end it. Unfortunately, after the dust settled and it was over, only then did I finally understand it was my own baggage that had created most of the issues.

Instead of likely losing another relationship to the same behavior, I needed to find a way out of the cycle.

This book (audio) walked me through many of my behaviors and gave me the insight to recognize what I specifically needed to change.

It was both important to me that I never torture another person with my lack of availability after they were willing to emotionally invest in me.

Solid!

Despite being only 2.5 hours long, this book covers an amazing breadth of material that includes attachment theory, trauma, and codependency and presents it in a clear concise format. The first half of the book, which presents the characteristics and dynamics of emotional unavailability, is painfully accurate. Yet, I also deeply appreciated the caring space she provides for emotionally unavailable people to address their issue. Smith's perspective as a life coach, as well as her complex understanding of emotional unavailability is refreshing and empowering for both partners in an unavailable dynamic. There is so much to say about this subject, but this is an awesome beginning! I can't wait to read the other volumes in this series!

So impressed!!!

Loved, loved loved it! I want more. She gets to the heart of the matter so well. I found myself having many light bulb moments. Traits that are so often (wrongly, I think) linked to Narcissistic Personality Disorder are well explained and make more sense to me being associated with emotional unavailability. Well done - hope to see more of this author in the near future.

Needs to be fleshed out

The book didn't have any examples which could help one to get what she was saying.

Knew something was wrong

In a 21 year marriage that after 3 years it was like a light went off.
For the next 18 years wondered why the "relationship" was the way it was.
I for sure contributed my fair share of dysfunction.
Was my kids who woke me up. They said no matter what you do it will never change.
This book was a Godsend. Now I will begin the difficult and painful path towards healing.

This is all done in the "You are unavailable" mode

I bought this to hear about someone who is unavailable and what I should do with the relationship or about why. This turned into a book about how I am emotionally unavailable and why I should change this and that. Not interested. Getting my money back. If you have issues then this is for you, if someone you know has issues then this is not for you.
