About The Book

Ever since Adam wooed Eve (or was it the other way around?), couples have been bedeviled by the thorny path of love. Why do all couples have such a difficult time becoming – and remaining – close?

Now, for everyone who has ever struggled with the pain of an unhappy relationship, psychotherapist Eileen McCann answers this age-old question in a book destined to become every lover’s favorite bedside companion. For what McCann has discovered is that the thorny path of love is nothing less than a highly choreographed dance with steps around the issues of power, distance and intimacy, each partner assuming on of two roles. She calls this “The Two-Step” and, with the help of Douglas Shannon’s delightful and insightful drawings, she charts our unwitting steps in a dance of pursuit and avoidance and shows us how to transform it into one that returns joy and meaning to our lives. The Two-Step is a wise and witty guide to affairs of the heart that delights the eye as it instructs the mind.
