    2. This is a really cool book It felt like an intellectual, nonfiction version of the hit film Love Actually It s got great entertainment value in its interconnected love stories, but its author main character is also an eminent scholar with the ability to point out the trends in her subjects behavior and draw conclusions about the nature of love based on several centuries of psychology research and classic literature, as well as her own case studies and personal experience.


    3. Kafka once wrote that the books which make us happy are easy to replace, but the books which shake us to the core are the ones we really need For me, The Golden Condom was a rare and precious example of a book which managed to do both My lips twitched frequently at Dr Safer s turns of phrase, but my worldview also underwent some deep editing in the process This book called out patterns in my own behavior which I had never noticed before I still expect to spend a lifetime refining my approach to [...]


    4. This book is the perfect antidote to Twilight I just wish it had come out about five or ten years sooner As a member of a generation whose concept of true love has been fixed by the likes of Stephenie Meyer, I found psychologist Jeanne Safer s measured, witty, and well researched discussion of the difference between obsessive attraction human bondage and healthy affirmation tenderness and steadfastness to be bracing, refreshing, and clarifying It gave me hope.


    5. Dr Safer s book strikes a tidy balance between empirical research and life advice Her conclusions are based on anecdotal evidence, but then, she s got a huge body of anecdotal evidence, comprising several decades of her own research practice in psychoanalysis, plus the research practice of other psychoanalysts going all the way back to Freud I think that her emphasis on tracking robust trends in reported personal experiences makes a very nice counterpoint to other writing in this field Helen Fis [...]


    6. A fine book Dr Safer is a psychoanalyst with an ideal blend of confidence and humility about her craft, able to demonstrate the relevance of Freudian insights to modern life repetition compulsion, abreaction, narcissistic injury, etc while also pointing out their limitations.


    7. I loved this book I thought it was readable, funny, smart, insightful, HIGHLY relatable, and quite soothing, actually I appreciated the author s willingness to share her own struggles it was informative without being pedantic or shallow And here is the best part It did not feel like psychobabble at all She knows what she is talking about, and she is capable of expressing herself without being trite I bet she is a wonderful therapist.


    8. The title of this book, The Gold Condom and Other Essays on Love Lost and Found, might pique your interest, but the series of vignettes of love, its motivations, obsessions, pain and ecstasies, will keep you reading Well known psychotherapist, Dr Jeanne Safer, shares real relationships, her own and that of her patients Safer s numerous interviews, as well as her own personal revelations, ranging from romantic love to love between friends, rewards readers with insights into hidden emotional lands [...]


    9. A book that I think needs to be read slowly and with intent, every chapter almost like a meeting with a therapist I have a wonderful enlightened feeling after going through these chapters, like I understand myself and others better thanks to the stories shared, as well as the conclusions drawn from them I know this is a book I will revisit someday to check in after my own life has shifted and changed enough to create a new point of view and until then I remain with an admiration for the author a [...]


    10. I didn t like this book The author, Jeanne Safer is a psychologist in private practice This book is about relationships, between lovers, siblings, parents and children Although she uses examples of her troubled patients, this book is also largely about her own issues and her own troubled relationships In fact the title refers to an act of revenge against a lover who scorned her Even after being married happily for many years, she can t get over that experience I found the book egotistical, repet [...]


    11. I thought this was going to be like short stories, but it is actually almost a self help book The author uses her personal experiences to move through different types of love I found part of it interesting, because she was applying psychology in a practical way that you could bring into your own life, but it also just seemed self absorbed Which I guess is the point of the book, but I didn t finish it.


    12. Jeanne Safer, AB 69AuthorFrom our pages Summer 16 Unrequited love, unhealthy friendships, traumatic breakups we ve all been there In 12 essays psychotherapist Jeanne Safer shares her own relationship experiences and memorable anecdotes from other people in her life, including her patients The collection shows how universal stories like these are, and how entertaining, and liberating, they can be.


    13. This is a book that at times offers really searing, meaningful stories about different types of love and what makes them work or not work It s also at times a too drawn out meandering navel gaze of musings It s difficult for me to decide which of these things I consider to be important about it The first few chapters start off strong, but it s pretty hit or miss after that.



    14. Interesting premise, disappointing execution The essays are long and plodding and frankly, not very insightful.
