I Need Your Love - Is That True?
by Byron Katie
Rather than looking for the one, be the one you are looking for.

What You Feel You Can Heal
by John Gray
The ideas of the 4 bodies in relationships, physical, emotional, mental and spiritual form the basis of this guide to better relationships. The concept of how we are connected to others in relationships and express what other repress is the one that has been most useful to me.
