purpose of the book that I am reading

I just finished the first chapter of the book that I was mentioning earlier, A Rhetoric of Interpersonal Communication and Relationships, and the first chapter, which is an introductory one, ends like this:

“Our task in this book is to assist you in understanding and developing the kind of relationships advocated in the gestalt “prayer.”

               I do my thing
             and you do your thing
           I am not in this world to
                live up to your
               expectations, and
           you are not in this world
              to live up to mine.
             You are you and I am I
              and if by chance we
                find each other
                it's beautiful.

                 (Perls, 1976)
