My EAP counselor suggested it. Is this worth the read? I've read so many relationship-help books that they are starting to run together in my mind.

We're both in our 30s. One awesome 4-year-old daughter.

It's the basis for Imago Therapy. You can find more about it here:

I think it is definitely worth the read.

It's a good one. I've read it more than once.

I think it is worth the read. It really helped us to think about how our FOO issues impacted our relationship, as well as articulate what we needed/wanted/expected in our relationship.
