Reviews and Endorsements

'A must-read for everyone wanting to understand more about what makes us fall in - and out - of love' - Philippa Perry

'A charming, useful, kind book about the pains and hopes of relationship' - Alain de Botton

'Powerful, masterful, insightful. With every turn of the page I learnt more about people and their relationships and, ultimately, about myself' - Annalisa Barbieri

'Tell Me the Truth about Love is a compelling and thoughtful book which anyone who is interested in the dynamics of romantic relationships should read. Abse is a psychoanalyst so her approach is reflexive, and the complex learnings that couples make during therapy with her seem to unfold in real time. This is not a book about quick fixes. It is a book that demonstrates that no couple is "able to meet each other's desires completely, but the relationship exists in the trying.' - Suzi Godson

'The inner lives of couples fascinate us. We wonder what goes when we sense trouble and heartache. Susanna Abse shows how therapists turn hurts, and misunderstandings into longed for deeper connections.' - Susie Orbach

'Did you happen to marry a prince or a princess who eventually turned into a frog? For anyone who has ever experienced a spousal disappointment or a marital explosion, this masterpiece by Susanna Abse, written in a compelling style with compassion and warmth and humour, provides us with truly brilliant insights about the complexities of couple psychology. This might be the best book ever about the art and the anguish of human relationships.' - Professor Brett Kahr
