The BookViral Review: Genre – Self-help and Personal Development
It seems we are inundated with self-help books and in particular those on the subject of love and relationships yet the genuinely worthwhile ones to read are sadly something of a rarity! Learn to Love: Guide to Healing Your Disappointing Love Life certainly falls into the latter and proves to be a motivational and practical handbook that encourages readers to own their love life.
“Your love life belongs to you,” says Thomas Jordan Ph.D “your love life can belong to past experiences you’ve had, or even someone else’s…” and Jordan believes what happens in anyone’s particular love life should be entirely up to them. On the face of it, such statements might seem glib but Jordan’s thinking is underpinned by his 30 years of love life research and he’s confident in challenging our perspectives on love relationships. Our learned beliefs, behaviours and feelings.
What’s clear from reading Jordan’s book is that love relationship problems don’t happen in a vacuum. There are self-esteem issues, there are identity issues, and there are deep insecurities that many of us never address and Jordan not only looks at the psychology but the broader elements of personal development.
From the moment you start reading, you know you are in the hands of a consummate professional and candid writer whose words get to the heart of learning to love and how we can change ourselves to invite more of it into our lives.
Framed within the context of his own experiences Jordan has penned a powerful and meaningful book that is thought-provoking and decidedly unpretentious. A must-read for those looking for guidance and healing it is recommended without reservation.
