Thought-provoking and real
Yes, yes yes! Please read this book before committing - for the first time, or once again - to a relationship!
Based on the author’s obvious continuing passion for understanding the relationship journey most seem to go through, “Please Read Me” does not purport to give slick answers. Rather it poses some sticky, potentially uncomfortable, eternally fascinating questions that are crucial to explore if we want deep, fulfilling and delightful intimate relationships. As I traversed its pages, I felt as though someone had taken a sneak peek into my life and loves!
Taking the reader on a journey through the first thrilling throes of romantic love, to commitment, marriage, family, divorce and the subsequent impact on all, and most crucially the innocent children left in the wake of our adult dramas, Pasquale Palmieri takes a refreshing perspective on ‘What went wrong?’.
Beneath the words lies a recurring theme of ‘Know Thyself’, alluding to man’s ancient and ongoing quest for self-knowledge, and which was inscribed at the entry to the Temple of Apollo at Delphi. Does Palmieri perhaps suggest it is also the key to enable entry to the potential delights of an authentic, sustainable relationship?
‘Please Read Me’ is not a book to be read only once. It is one that can be randomly opened time and time again, as I have done, with enough food for philosophical discussions, deeper thinking and self-reflection to keep any seeker of love and truth satisfied for a long time...and hopefully to make different, braver choices for a different, more desirable outcome.
