Book Review – “Attached” by Amir Levine and Rachel S. F. Heller


This book is about three primary attachment styles: anxious, avoidant and secure.  Generally speaking, it refers to intimate relationships, but I think it can also help with other forms of relationships too.

The book explains each attachment style and helps you evidence which one(s) you are.  It gives case studies and some of which you may be able to relate to.  I even laughed at myself on a few occasions when I realised how “silly” I had been in the past, but in truth it was just my attachment style being triggered.  There are little practical exercises and lots of food for thought to take away from this book.  It also helped me think about how I communicate and express myself to others and how much my attachment style has had an impact on this.

I think this is a great book to help you learn and understand yourself and how you are when it comes to relationships.  It can also help you to change yourself once you have the knowledge and insight that this book offers.  Once you have a clearer understanding of why you react the way you do you can slowly but surely change, if you so choose.
