    Story
    "Wake up cheating betrayer"


    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 .

    Story
    "Good advice"

    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.

    Story
    "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.
