Has anyone ever read anything by Richo before? He's got an impressive bunch of books. I especially am interested in How to Be an Adult in Relationships, which is described at the publisher's website:

shambhala.com/html/catalog/items/isbn/978-1-57062-812-2.cfm

The blurb on that page says that he lists five things as key to adult relationships:
  1. Attention to the present moment; observing, listening, and noticing all the feelings at play in our relationships.

  2. Acceptance of ourselves and others just as we are.

  3. Appreciation of all our gifts, our limits, our longings, and our poignant human predicament.

  4. Affection shown through holding and touching in respectful ways.

  5. Allowing life and love to be just as they are, with all their ecstasy and ache, without trying to take control.
