Ever since Adam wooed Eve (or was it the other way around?), couples have been bedeviled by the thorny path of love. Why do all couples have such a difficult time becoming and remaining close?
Now, for everyone who has ever struggled with the pain of an unhappy relationship, psychotherapist Eileen McCann answers this age-old question in a book destined to become every lover’s favorite bedside companion. For what McCann has discovered is that the thorny path of love is nothing less than a highly choreographed dance with steps around the issues of power, distance and intimacy, each partner assuming on of two roles. She calls this “The Two-Step” and, with the help of Douglas Shannon’s delightful and insightful drawings, she charts our unwitting steps in a dance of pursuit and avoidance and shows us how to transform it into one that returns joy and meaning to our lives. The Two-Step is a wise and witty guide to affairs of the heart that delights the eye as it instructs the mind.
