Unlike other books that deal with broken relationships or mending fences Do I Stay or Do I Go? is truly unique in its true nuts-and-bolts, down-to-earth approaches to facing problems within existing relationships. In a highly practical format, Dr. Occhetti works the reader through a series of steps that place heavy emphasis on accepting one's own responsibility for bad relationships -- making personal accountability key to coming to a decision. Replete with actual case studies, the book provides real word examples that will assist the reader in unraveling their own personal strengths which will enable the steps necessary for resolution --as well as the weaknesses that could hold one back.

Not letting any stone unturned, the author even addresses one of the most scary aspects of today's Internet: cybersex. In addition, there is coverage of other very contemporary topics such as adultery, second marriages, and stepchildren. Learn how to deal with negotiations and how to handle depression. As one reviewer wrote: "The book is fair, unbiased, and stimulates readers to take responsibility for their own choices, whatever they may be."
