Why Can't You Read My Mind?: Overcoming the 9 Toxic Thought Patterns That Get in the Way of a Loving Relationship

Jeffrey Bernstein, Author, Susan F. Magee, Joint Author Marlowe & Company $14.95 (210p) ISBN 978-1-56924-475-3

Bernstein, a psychologist specializing in couples and family therapy, and Magee (The Power of Positive Confrontation) offer partners a way to renew the spark in their relationships in this succinct self-help guide. They claim that one of the most significant steps is to focus on yourself rather than your partner by ridding yourself of toxic thoughts,""negative thoughts that have lost their basis in reality and have gotten out of control."" Examining nine toxic thought patterns (such as jumping to conclusions, labeling one another and playing the""blame game""), the authors provide well-researched explanations, relevant examples and practical alternatives to transform negative thoughts and behaviors into positive and constructive ones.
