Item Description...
A throwaway buzzword in pop psychology, intimacy remains a litmus test for the health of relationships and is something everyone should strive for, says Kelly, the bestselling author of The Rhythm of Life. "Intimacy is the one thing a person cannot live happily without," he writes. Since many people cling to the "pubescent notion" that intimacy and sex are synonymous, Kelly begins by talking about what intimacy is not-sex, common interests-and proffering up inspirational tidbits and oft heard motivational questions ("Who energizes you?" "Why do they energize you?" "How do you want to be remembered?") before hammering home the thesis of this book: intimacy is a "legitimate need." His seven levels of intimacy-cliches; facts; opinions; hopes and dreams; feelings; faults, fears and failures; and legitimate needs-each get a chapter-length discussion. Kelly advocates openness-in communication, enduring pain, delaying gratification-and sprinkles in bits of spirituality in cajoling readers to foster intimacy, and, in turn, love and the meaning of life. "Life is about love. It's about whom you love and whom you hurt. Life's about how you love and hurt the people close to you." His view may seem simplistic, but Kelly's simple, direct prose and patient explanations will appeal to spiritual readers

Reviews - What do our customers think?
"Seven Levels of Intimacy" by Matthew Kelly  Feb 6, 2007
This book has great ideas on how to make your relationships deeper and more meaningful. Nor am I just talking about a romantic relationship, or one with your significant other. This book should drastically change how you view all relationships, from friendships to your (future)spouse. This is a great read for anyone looking to go deeper.
The Seven Levels of Intimacy by Matthew Kelly  Jan 21, 2007
This book was given as a wedding gift to a couple after I had heard the author speak and it gives practical advice to make a marriage better.
The Seven Levels of Intimacy  Jan 9, 2007
Excellent book. Matthew Kelly has an incredible talent in expressing and teaching communication skills. He uses interesting stories with everyday life experiences to keep it interesting. The book was easy to understand. This would make a great gift.
This is not about physical intimacy as you may think  Nov 10, 2006
Matthew Kelly is such a great inspiration! This book is not about the physical part of intimacy. Rather, it talks about how you grow in relationships with friends and family. Matthew encourages readers to be with people that bring out the "best-version" of themselves. He wants all of us to share our dreams; even keep track of our dreams. After we decide what we want to do, we make a plan, and surround ourselves with people who will help us be that best we can be.
I would also suggest that people buy his book "The Rhythm of Life" which is a definate 5 star book. I think these two books give you a lot to think about and work on in relationships. I can honestly say that some of my relationships have improved since I have changed some things within myself.
Great book  Mar 9, 2006
The book was referred by a friend. I was surprised how helpful it was in determing what you want or should expect out of a relationship. I encourage all those seeking or involved in relationship to read it. It is even more powerful reading it together as a couple.
