I got this book due to a recent problem with my spouse. It was recommended by probe.com so I thought I should read it. It reinforced things I already knew about confronting your spouse but unfortunately the approach didn't really work for me. Unless your spouse is a believer, it may not be worth trying.
I read along with a friend experiencing trouble in her marriage. Although she was in the early stages of her grieving the loss of trust, she realized she could be strong in the midst of it all! This book demonstrates time and time again there is strength in all situations
There is no other book on the market that so thoroughly understands and comes alongside the person whose spouse is slipping away, or has already strayed. There's an incredible understanding of what's going on in the relationship and how to handle oneself as partner walks the other direction. It's a breath of fresh air to the one desiring reconciliation and an amazing encouragement in the midst of what is typically a chaotic and confusing and very difficult time in life. A must read, and yes, definitely by yourself. There is hope.
This book has helped me realize that all issues cannot be resolved without some consequences which may not be the outcome we desire. But the advice has helped me personally to re-evaluate my life and situation and to move forward.
This book is great. The idea is great. However this toughness must be applied carefully if there is depression in the picture. In my case my depressed husband translated everything as I was done with him and drew further away from me. These principles can still be applied on such situation but at a mild level.
