Praise for “Why Did You Load the Dishwasher Like That? 9 Whopping Mistakes That Push Love Away”

Packed with Insights and Useful Tips

This is one of those books that should be taught in school. The author points out that most of us are constantly building walls between ourselves and others, and shows us how to tear them down. It’s filled with exercises and real-life examples, some humorous, and explains how to turn good ideas into healthy habits via practice and resilience. My only complaint about this book is that I needed it decades ago. It would have saved me and my (attempted) partners a lot of grief.
