Publisher's Summary

Once an affair comes to light, many unfaithful persons "wake up" and want to save their marriages. Yet they usually make terrible mistakes in their bungled attempts to win back their partners' trust. Linda J. MacDonald, an infidelity specialist for 23 years, has identified behaviors and attitudes that determine unfaithful persons' success or failure to mend their marriages after the wrecking ball of an affair. How to Help Your Spouse Heal from Your Affair offers practical advice for those who've strayed and want a second chance.

How to avoid the potholes that doom marriages after affairs
Critical guidelines for the first hours after discovery
Fifteen essential steps for repair after betrayal
Skills to cope with your partner's obsessions and "triggers"
Ways to undo the damage from your lies
The keys to avoid prolonging your spouse's agony (and yours)
The difference between helpful and harmful apologies
How to rebuild your broken life, relationships, and integrity

good content for embarrassing subject matter

If you're reading this book it isn't because life is showing you it's grandest possibilities full of hope and goodness. This is a MUST READ for anyone going through the lowest lows in life by experiencing an affair. I was the cheated on spouse and it helped to know from a professional what the healing process should look like. it will be hard to hear if your the cheater, but if you want to save your marriage, or relationship it's a critical read to show you the path to recovery.

THE Text Book on how to rebuild

Wether you are the offended or the offender OR if you are tempted to be unfaithful this book must be read or listened to. I woke up this morning and listened, took notes and it changed my mind/perspective on how I saw the events that shaped my life.

Good for understanding the feelings of both sides

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Yes, it was worth listening to this book because it has a fair account of the feelings of each side. Particularly of the betrayed partner.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The emphasis on the pain of the betrayed person is the most important aspect for the betrayer to understand.

Any additional comments?

Although the title lacks scientific background for its assertions, most of it seems reasonable and interesting. There are some religious comments and views that should not be there but in general, this book can be read by religious and non religious people.
