This is written in a unique way, in that it allows the reader to 'sit in' with the counsellor and see, hear and feel what is happening during the couples' therapy. The reader witnesses, on a case-by-case basis, a range of marital crises as they are unfolded, discussed and (with noted exceptions) resolved. At the heart of the book is the dialogue between Dorothy Freeman and one or both partners and between partners themselves; and a special feature is her running commentary on the therapy sessions in detailed notes in the margins of each page. These notes explain both the rationale and the timing of her therapeutic interventions, and record her occasional frustrations and failures. She emonstrates how such awareness may serve to get the process back on track.

"... a candid and confidential look into her expert therapeutic processes ... the accounts of the interviews themselves read rather like an engrossing collection of short stories by a very gifted author. Highly recommended for the beginning therapist as well as non-therapists who, as clergy, physicians and lawyers, are yet called upon to assist deeply troubled couples'. "
- C. R. Fowler
Executive Director, American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy

"well-written, candidly presented and amazingly clear in its explication of complicated processes. This casebook is bound to be of great value for beginning and experienced practitioners in social work, mental health and marriage counselling. It is a book well worth reading not only for its professional integrity, but also for its humour and great practical wisdom elaborated with skill and compassion'."
- Milton Wittman, former Chief, Social Work Education Branch, National Insitute of Mental Health

"My respect for the author grew throughout the book. One feels clearly in the presence of an eminently experienced, skilled, sensitive, solid and resourceful therapist..."
- Kitty LaPerriere, 'Contemporary Psychology', Journal of the American Psychological Association
