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)
I love books that have magic! I also like me some good scifi:-)
This really helped me have a plan in place to help my wife. I highly recommend this to anyone who has been unfaithful.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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!
I read this book as the hurt spouse to see if these are things I'd like to hear from my spouse and it was very good advice. I needed to know if I had unreasonable expectations from him. I recommend this for anyone dealing with this topic to get it sooner than later. Maybe even before the bomb drops to avoid as much damage as possible from the get go. If you did wrong this is a good start to try and pick up the broken pieces.
I was so glad my husband listened to this book. After he told me about his affairs with prostitutes I was devastated and this book depicted how I was feeling to a T! She hits on everything I was thinking and feeling and even though I might have expressed this to my husband I think it helped him understand just how devastated I feel and gave him some empathy knowing this is normal.
"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.
