The Marriage Benefit: Reviews

“Combines wisdom with practical suggestions, humor with insight, experience with fresh ideas. O’Connell shows us a way of looking at marriage that instills joy and enthusiasm, while subduing the nagging doubts marriage so often secretly spawns.”

- Edward Hallowell, MD, bestselling author of Driven to Distraction


“Both robustly clinical and intensely personal. Dr. O’Connell’s patients speak about their pain and about their dilemmas. Their therapist helps them to see what has ripened between them and what has withered, what can be altered and what can be nurtured. He tells us what staying the course with another has to offer and how it promotes optimal development.”

- Jim Herzog, author of Father Hunger
