Praise for Dr. Goldsmith’s Emotional Fitness Books

His 52 chapters include explanations and exercises for developing more intimacy, compassion, and understanding. While some of the tips, such as discussing one's vulnerabilities, require courage, others are just fun. Helpful if read cover to cover or in pieces. Recommended for all public libraries.
