LOS ANGELES, April 1, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Troy Dunn is the creator and executive producer of two hit television series—the No. 1 rated show on WE Network, The Locator, and his newest series, APB with Troy Dunn, which airs on TNT. Beyond being a recognized television personality, best-selling author and inspirational speaker, he considers his most important roles to be husband and father. He and his wife, high school sweetheart Jennifer, have been married for more than twenty-six years and have eight children, one of whom suffers from pediatric cancer. He is also the author of the best-selling book, Young Bucks, from which all proceeds have gone to pediatric cancer research. Dunn has spent nearly twenty-five years dedicated to repairing fractured families, beginning with the search for his own mother's birth mother. He and his team have reunited over 40,000 people with missing loved ones, and did so by first giving them the tools to cut through the despair, resentments, blame, and anger that had driven them apart. Dunn's track record speaks for itself, both in his personal life and his professional success. He is truly a family relationship expert, capable of repairing and rebuilding families of all types and situations . . . including yours.

Dunn says, "I am one of the world's biggest fans of 'family.' I've seen so much evidence of its benefits, and it is my daily intention to broadcast the power of a family unit far and wide. A functioning, happy family is the greatest gift you can give yourself, your husband, wife, partner, and children and really, the world."

From the foreword Dr. Phil McGraw shares, "I truly believe Troy is doing God's work.  And I want to put him in the direct path of as many troubled relationships as humanly possible.   And now, finally, he has gathered his ideas and successful strategies for repairing and rebuilding families into a book.  

With a wonderful combination of compassion, humor, practicality, optimism and passion, Troy offers the reader an accessible primer to addressing family problems and taking the slow, but sure steps to fix them.  Whether you think your marriage is in its death throes or that you just want it to be stronger and better, there are answers here that will help every family be the best it can be."

Dunn believes that whether your marriage and family are teetering on the edge of disaster or are simply leaning in a bad direction, his very unique, reliable strategies will strengthen and even save your family. This book will not just reveal individual, couple and family "issues," he will give you the tools you need to resolve them. His Life Changing Action Plan (LCA) includes four steps to determine what is wrong with your relationship, embrace the idea of change in a long-lasting way, repair damage, and provide empowerment and tools to permanently stabilize a family. You will also be startled to see yourself or your family in one of his eye-opening 10 Relationship Roadblocks. (The chapters on the biggest taboos of all— money and sex—may change everything you ever thought about those two topics!) Troy's advice is real, raw, and reliable.

Also included are thought-provoking statistics, quizzes, questionnaires and worksheets to help readers begin to identify issues and work towards better outcomes.
