Publisher's Summary

Until now, we have been taught that forgiveness is good for us and that good people forgive. Dr. Spring, a gifted therapist and the award-winning author of After the Affair, proposes a radical, life-affirming alternative that lets us overcome the corrosive effects of hate and get on with our lives - without forgiving. She also offers a powerful and unconventional model for genuine forgiveness - one that asks as much of the offender as it does of us.
This bold and healing book offers step-by-step, concrete instructions that help us make peace with others and with ourselves, while answering such crucial questions as these:



How do I forgive someone who is unremorseful or dead?
When is forgiveness cheap?
What is wrong with refusing to forgive?
How can the offender earn forgiveness?
How do we forgive ourselves for hurting another human being?
