Publisher's Summary

Discover the REAL reasons men cheat, and find out what you can do to prevent it!

M. Gary Neuman shares the findings of his extensive research with unfaithful husbands that turn the conventional wisdom about extramarital affairs on its head: It's not all about sex; he's not just a pig; she's not prettier than you; and he really does feel terrible about what he's done.

So why do men do it? Neuman reveals the emotional roots of male infidelity, explains how men experience and express their emotions differently from women, and lays out a simple series of actions you can take to ensure that your husband never strays. These steps help you build a deeper and more intimate relationship and a stronger, happier marriage that is more supportive and rewarding for both of you.

Don't sit there wondering if your husband will ever cheat on you. Listen to The Truth about Cheating and make sure he won't!

More blaming the victim.

I have zero doubt that the clients who chose to betray their spouses have used all of these excuses. No different than alcoholics or drug addicts often give similar excuses for their behavior. They all have justifications and play the blame game. Family members of any of these issues are not responsible nor can they control their partners choices. Your clients need to be held responsible for their choices! Stop blaming the spouse! If a bad marriage equals infidelity why didn’t both partners cheat? This is an integrity issue. Choosing to betray your family is completely selfish and self centered behavior. Stop telling the family if only you had done A, B, and C the client would have made a different choice. The betrayal is on the person who chose it!

Not Helpful

I think it's important to be careful with who you take advice from, even professionals. There were several red flags for me in this book and I didn't finish it. I don't think it's right for some one to present themselves as a professional and then use fear mongering to make you think there's a high probability your spouse is going to cheat on you, even if he hasn't yet. I think a lot of the complaints the men he interviewed with are indicative of a culture where men feel entitled to be the center of the universe and women are secondary characters that only exist as a romantic foil or to be their emotional caretakers. If that's your goal, maybe this book will help you. I don't think there was a large enough pool of subjects to get accurate results. I also think that a lot of the dissatisfaction the men expressed is quite likely a result of their own actions. You can't make someone else responsible for your feelings of happiness or satisfaction - we're responsible for our own. I do believe if you're unhappy in a relationship both parties should work toward resolution. But this book is predicated on this idea that you should behave a certain way to keep your spouse faithful. It's absurd. That is entirely up to them. Every reason given for cheating is an excuse for lacking ethics. There's nothing you can do to make someone else choose to be an ethical person and I think it's irresponsible to tell people otherwise. This book is not helpful.

I’m disgusted with this book.,

This book is garbage as far as I’m concerned! I didn’t do a damn thing to deserve my husband cheating on me. His mom cheated on both her husbands. I was loving and supportive until he started working 48 or 72 hours at a time. He did his best to stay away from home or would start fights to leave, sometimes for a few weeks. I’m feeling bitter about men right now.

The self help worst book ever!!!!

This book is terrible. I would not reccomend any woman to read this who is going through relationship problems. The author seems as if all he can do is make generalizations. I wish i never used any credits for this waste of a time book.
ps- the sample audio clip is contradicting to the book.

The Truth about Cheating: Why Men Stray and What Y

I think this book has been very helpful in my marriage. I've seen a change already in just a few days, using more appreciation and thankfulness. It's why I need to do it that made the shift in me to start, because I do really feel that way but never Made the effort just thinking he knows.

Not what I expected

This is chock full of how women should bend over backwards and basically compromise who they are in order to bring a man to where a good husband should be. There was no mention of discussing things with your husbands..I do not recommend

Found This Put All Blame On The Woman

Author gave a lot of rationalizations for why men cheat… almost like men are poor innocent sensitive victims. The author never mentioned anything about a man’s responsibility in his decision process. Didn’t even mention that the right thing to do would be for the cheater to leave his marriage before having sex with someone else. I understand men need affection and ego stroking (so do women) but the book was very one sided… M Gary Neuman I was disappointed. You brought up some good advice but I think the advice could have been
given to both husbands and wives.

Practical guidance

A very practical book with a wealth of information. It was surprising to hear some of the statistics quoted, and the author clarified why the numbers were so high or low in those categories. The narration was excellent.
There were two points the author made very clear:

1. There is never an excuse for cheating. Suggestions for a more fulfilling marriage should not be taken as blaming the victim. The victim is not responsible for the affair.

2. This book is not a replacement for therapy. If there is cheating in the marriage, seek professional help in addition to applying the suggestions outlined in the audiobook.
