3.0 von 5 Sternen Immediate help to retreat from the brink - not long term
Although this book is great to help the couples that need help to retreat from the brink of disaster, it has little or no effect on the deep rooted problems that may be plaguing a relationship. Best if used with both committed to change the problems in a relationship. The one person techniques were only minimally effective and dependent upon that one individuals...

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Divorce Busting: A Step-By-Step Approach to Making Your Marriage Loving Again: A Revolutionary and Rapid Program for Staying Together (Taschenbuch)
I'm a marriage columnist and author of two books on marriage: Marriage 911 and Chocolate Chili Pepper Love. I'm not a professional counselor, I'm a humorist/storyteller and write as a friend to others who are hurting in their relationships. The #1 book I recommend to those "stuck" in problem areas, the book that was most helpful to me during a time of darkness and confusion in my own marriage is Divorce Busting. When couples are hurting they don't usually need a course in WHY (they are already experts at that) -- what they need is HELP and RELIEF. Michelle's warm, practical, engaging advice is the medicine this writer/speaker prescribes for those who want to improve their marriage and maintain a sense of personal peace and dignity in the process. Thank you, Michelle! Keep up the good work.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Helped save my marriage!, 19. Februar 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Divorce Busting: A Step-By-Step Approach to Making Your Marriage Loving Again: A Revolutionary and Rapid Program for Staying Together (Taschenbuch)
The book details what Solution-Oriented Brief Therapy (SBT) is about and offers step by step ways to turn failing marriages around- even if only one partner is seeking to save the marriage. The book is written in a direct, non-psycobabble language and is also entertaining. (I found myself chuckling and saying "wow" quite often). SBT is designed to work far faster than traditional therapy- as many as 10 sessions but usually 4-6 sessions with only a couple of weeks between sessions.
The author wrote the book to get the information about SBT out to more people faster because SBT really works. She has received countless letters to this effect as well as having seen successes from her own practice. It is also enlightening to know that she was a "traditional" marriage counselor before shifting to SBT.
Plenty of examples and "how to's" and it is designed to work fast. The author contrasts traditional therapy versus SBT and explains why SBT works and gives some good insight as to why long drawn out traditional therapy often fails- especially if one partner is not willing to reconcile.
Rather than psychoanalyze why husbands or wives are a certain way, she directs the reader to examine "successes" from earlier in the marriage. She then guides the reader towards seeking positive outcomes via short-term simple goals/objectives based on those things that "worked" in the past.
The book also provides insight as to how men and women interact in a marriage environment and how men and women view and react to things differently. It also provides tremendous insight as to how a husband and wife can both be "working" at making a marriage successful, yet still be heading down the road to misery and possibly even divorce.
I would recommend the book to couples spanning the spectrum from newly engaged to those who have already divorced.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A must read if your situation is in crisis, 17. November 1997
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Divorce Busting: A Step-By-Step Approach to Making Your Marriage Loving Again: A Revolutionary and Rapid Program for Staying Together (Taschenbuch)
I disagree with the comments by sls04@sprynet.com. I believe this is an excellent book but it should not be the only source of reference. Wiener-Davis approach is perhaps the best approach when the situation has reached such a crisis level. In my opinion once the situation is out of crisis then a long term approach should be used to follow-up. Which is why I rate this book an 8 rather than 10.
While I am currently going through a divorce, my wife used as her explanation of wanting a divorce, "YOU DID NOT MEET MY EMOTIONAL NEEDS". I was comsumed with guilt until I read the SAME QUOATION in Wiener-Davis' book and the reason people use this as an excuse of wanting out of their marriage.
DIVORCE BUSTING help me realize that this was not MY problem but my wife's own failure to interject other external activities into her life. With that I was able to arm myself emotionally and was able to confront my wife with the truth about herself and her situation. My wife's inability to turn the mirror to herself and her unwillingness to change and lack of comittment has led her to take the "easy" way out via blame.
DIVORCE BUSTING also help save my friend's marriage. But in his case both him and his wife read the book and both decided to make changes. In fact I'd venture to say that their situation was worst. However they both are committed to each other.
Another thing I'd like to point out is Wiener-Davis' assessment of counselors. I can attest to this first hand. During the crisis my counselor labeled me as "passive aggressive". This labelling help "validate" my wife's position. Such labelling only inflames the situation and such labelling is ineffective. For example, is my 9y/o engaged in "passive aggressive" behavior if I have to call his name three time to get his attention. This is the type of ineffective counselling that occurs during a crisis that often assist the other party toward divorce rather than reconciliation.
Dispite sls04@sprynet.com comments I highly recommend this book. There is much too much divorce and often times, I believe, marriages can be salvaged.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Not just for marriages..., 15. Dezember 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Divorce Busting: A Step-By-Step Approach to Making Your Marriage Loving Again: A Revolutionary and Rapid Program for Staying Together (Taschenbuch)
I love this book! I bought it for my Mom, loaned it to a friend going through a divorce, I bought a copy for a friend who is separated, and I'm ordering another one for a friend who just wants to communicate better in her marriage.
I have found that I can use the techniques of this book in any inter-personal relationships. For instance, I was able to use one of the methods of resolving differences with my 12 year old son! And I avoided a big conflict with my boss thanks to this book! What about my marriage? I was able to keep communication open, but like the books says toward the end, "If someone is waiting in the wings for your spouse to divorce you, there may be little that you can do." The author is right!
Get this book!

5.0 von 5 Sternen What have you got to lose?, 18. Juni 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Divorce Busting: A Step-By-Step Approach to Making Your Marriage Loving Again: A Revolutionary and Rapid Program for Staying Together (Taschenbuch)
Currently separated, I am reading several marriage and self help books. This book truly stands out with it's common sense approach. Half way through I sent a copy to my husband (who would never pick up a self help book).I think he'll appreciate the author's goal oriented action approach. We've tried traditional therapy and analyzing our issues, and it has gotten us nowhere but more resentful of each other. We communicate less after a therapy session than we did prior.I think we are both ready for something different. I finished this book in less than a week and I feel so much more hopeful and positive about working on my marriage. Read this book if you have gone the traditional route of therapists and self help books.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Great starting point, 30. Juni 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Divorce Busting: A Step-By-Step Approach to Making Your Marriage Loving Again: A Revolutionary and Rapid Program for Staying Together (Taschenbuch)
The book is a "getting started" approach to getting a marriage back on track. The solution based method is a "let's do this now and not worry about your childhood method". This allows marital issues to be addressed immediately, and she claims, for a couple to find some success immediately as well. However, the author doesn't acknowledge that some of those deep seated issues may well need to be addressed--even if they come after the immediate conflict is resolved. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who is starting to think that divorce is an option--it's a great place to start.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Clear, Concise, Helpful, 16. Mai 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Divorce Busting: A Step-By-Step Approach to Making Your Marriage Loving Again: A Revolutionary and Rapid Program for Staying Together (Taschenbuch)
As a single person who had to read this book for a counseling class, I was very impressed by Weiner-Davis' clear, concise writing. As a daughter of divorced parents who fears repeating that painful mistake, this book gave me hope that my own marriage someday can be "divorce proof". In the end it reaffirms what ALL counselors should be saying to couples: I BELIEVE in your marriage, here is how YOU can too!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Divorce Busting - excellent material!, 18. Dezember 1999
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Divorce Busting: A Step-By-Step Approach to Making Your Marriage Loving Again: A Revolutionary and Rapid Program for Staying Together (Taschenbuch)
In a day and age where 1 out of 2 people will get divorced, it is refreshing to hear the advice Weiner-Davis gives about staying together! The hurt and devastation that comes with divorce (for all concerned) is to be avoided at all costs - she debunks several myths about "why I should get a divorce" as well as gives many peoples' personal testimonies. A must read!

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Divorce Busting: A Step-By-Step Approach to Making Your Marriage Loving Again: A Revolutionary and Rapid Program for Staying Together (Taschenbuch)
I had been talking with a close friend and shared that my wife and I were contemplating divorce. He gave me a copy of this book and The Romantic's Guide and two months later, we are happier than newlyweds. We know a lot more about our needs than we did when we were married so this time we are going to keep the happiness in our relationship.
