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.
It would take weeks of therapy to learn what Successful Rebuilders know:

"I regularly provide copies of Linda's book to my clients who are facing this challenge. Unanimously they report, 'That [book] was very helpful.'" (Earl D. Wilson, PhD., author Steering Clear, and Restoring the Fallen)
"This is the most succinct collection of wisdom for helping the unfaithful that I have seen for couples trying to pick up the pieces of their lives after affairs." (Lance Brown, M.A., Minister of Care, Chapel Hill Presbyterian)
very short and to the point. Very helpful short reasonable requests to help your betrayed heal. Excellent book overall and very recommended for anyone trying to repair and move on.
I found out about my husband's infidelity around 6 months ago from the first woman and 5 months ago from the second. Since that time he has done little to prove he has changed and is remorseful but has been very adamant that he's done everything he could. This book normalized my feelings and the happenings currently going on in our marriage. I'm hoping that he will listen and take some pointers too. Thank you for this book
This is a very helpful guide to helping your other half heal. It's painful to listen to if you are at fault and the audio isn't my favorite, but so many audio books are dry and the narrator is just that. I think all offenders should read this though as it gives insight into something you can only know about if you've experienced it or taken the time to learn about it. Thanks!
This audiobook described every ounce of emotion I was feeling after being cheated on. It felt like the author's words were mine. Give this to the person that betrayed you. The earlier the better...before he/she digs an even deeper hole that he/she can't get out of.
Machine gun paced advice for the serious minded restorer of the breach who not queasy at the sight of blood is willing to take on the battle required to win perhaps his/her FIRST noble victory.
Truly not for the self-absorbed dainty faintly of heart .
Great advice, great narrator. Would recommend for anyone who is currently in a relationship outside their marriage. Wish I had
Well thought out and good advice. Could do without all the Christian references. Good roadmap for the betrayer to do to heal the relationship. Would like more on how to improve patience and handle extreme and sometimes vial rage. Would still recommend.
"Good for understanding the feelings of both sides"
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.
The emphasis on the pain of the betrayed person is the most important aspect for the betrayer to understand.
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.
