    Susan Forward's practical and powerful book will help couples cope with terrible and toxic in–laws.

    Toxic in–laws are in–laws who create genuine chaos through various assaults––aggressive or subtle––on you and your marriage. Toxic–in laws come in a wide variety of guises, " The Critics.; ", who tell you what you're doing wrong, "The Controllers.;", who try to run you and your partner's life, " The Engulfers.;", who make incessant demands on your time, " The Masters of Chaos.;", who drain you and your partner with their problems, and, " The Rejecters.;", who let you know they don't want you as part of their family.

    Susan Forward draws on real–life voices and stories of both women and men struggling to free themselves from the frustrating, hurtful and infuriating relationships with their toxic in–laws. Dr. Forward offers you highly effective communication and behavioral techniques for getting through to partners who won't or can't stand up to their parents. Next, she lays out accessible and practical ways to reclaim you marriage from your in–laws. She shows you what to say, what to do and what limits to set. If you follow these strategies, you may not turn toxic in–laws into the in–laws of your dreams, but you will find some peace in your relationship with them.

    • For Anyone who has Problems with their In-Laws

      Susan Forward once again explains with example all the hows, whys, and what to do's; as she did with her even better "Toxic Parents" book. My only complaint with most of her stories (which are supposedly based on patients from her actual practice), is that I had a hard time relating to her upper middle class clients. I found myself thinking "What are they complaining about? I wish I had their problems". She does do a pretty good job in her classifications of the different sorts of meddling behavior in-laws are guilty of and the advice she gave. It is very helpful to see more clearly how in-laws manipulate situations and gain control over your relationships.

    • Eh

      The book was ok. I really thought it would be more about in-laws as a "family", not just my mother in law & father in law. As I read further, I became more bored and uninterested. Not something I would recommend to anyone w/ in-law trouble!
