David Richo's slow and halting speaking style becomes only a minor distraction once his rich understanding of romantic relationships starts to unfold. Like authors with a similar point of view, he ties adult connection problems to childhood losses, but his formulations sound more profound and soothing—more heart-centered and Buddha-like—than standard social science. With his memorable lists and examples from attachment theory, he explains how needs for attention, acceptance, appreciation, and affection unfold, and how simple shifts in the way we process neediness and attachment fears can lead us toward the love and security we desire. With his vocal sincerity and warm connection with his live audience obvious throughout the recording, this is a presentation that people in all committed relationships can savor and grow with.
