jpoc review
The author considers many aspects of "Mixed Matches" covering how we feel about and deal with ourselves, our partners, family, friends, strangers and finally our children.

The approach is mostly to quote annecdotal material from situations that illustrate the point the the author wishes to make. These are then followed by his personal, rather "folksy" advice.

The style will not appeal to all readers and especially, it may not be so effective at helping a relationship once problems have become entrenched.

However, as a book to read before this happens, it is very useful. I'd strongly recommend it to anyone in the early stages of a mixed relationship. It will prepare you for some of the trials ahead and you will be much better equipped to deal with them.
