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? In The Truth about Cheating, M. Gary Neuman shares the findings of his extensive research with unfaithful husbands that turn the conventional wisdom abo

After seeing the author nearly get mobbed by angry women on Oprah, my interest was piqued. I kept seeing it come through the library, in high demand, so I skimmed it. I was very upset by what I read that day so I didn't pick it up again for a long time.
As another commenter smartly added, I too must put the disclaimer that I have a very faithful husband. The idea that there were men out there who would, could and DO cheat disturbed me. Then I read Sex at Dawn that outlines the science of how we
I have a great husband and good marriage. I received this through a book club I belong to. Otherwise I wouldn't have bought it for money. Basically the author lays the blame for infidelity in a marriage at the feet of the betrayed spouse, which in this book is the wife. Did you not give him enough emotional attention? Did you focus too hard on your career or the children? Perhaps you just didn't think sex was important? Did you fail to give enough admiration and attention? Have you neglected to ...more

I do recommend this book to those who are newlyweds, especially those who care for their marriage to have a long happy years. In this book gives you reasons why mean cheat along what they think while having an affair, therefore they have reviews from men who have been involved in such hurtful actions. Although there are ways to keep your marriage on a full faithful healthy way. This Book all comes down to TIME. The number one reason why women are likely to be cheated on is because they make no t ...more

Recommends it for: no one
Recommended to Adrienna by: interview on blogtalkradio with Alan Curry
I thought I was really going to get to the nitty-gritty in this book. I heard him also on blogtalkradio with Alan Curry over a week ago. I thought it was a must-read book. However, I did not learn much from it as a single woman thinking about marriage. He gave examples and stories from people, but I skimmed through them. He lost me with the child voice; social voice; and home voice with each person's story towards the middle to end of the book. Back to the drawing board to find other books that ...more

Dislaimer: My husband would want me to point out that (as far as I know) he has not cheated!! :o) I saw this book featured on Oprah and was curious enough to pick it up. Many close friends and family members have had an issue with this and I wanted to understand it better because it can be very hurtful to everyone involved. Plus, if there was any good advice on a good marriage, I am always open to improve. (This book would say that is one of the main reasons my husband has NOT cheated.) It had i ...more

Shelves: non-fiction
I'm reading this because Oprah set it up so it could be downloaded after she had the author on. I wanted to see if I could load it onto my new Kindle. There was an option to save it as a text file from the pdf it was in that the kindle won't accept. It went into wordpad, and is readable, though the lines don't break right, leaving one long one short each time. Even though cheating is one of the things I never worry about with my husband, it is interesting to read the observations and stories of ...more

Oprah had the author of this book on her show. then Oprah had the PDF file of the book on her website, so her viewers could download the book for free. I decided to download the book. It was interesting, and I feel like I learned some great information. I've heard some of the ideas before (I read a lot of relationship books).
I'm gonna take this with a grain of salt, as a statistical essay of infidelity and potential preventative suggestions on keeping it out of a relationship. From what I've read so far, that's really the intended audience anyway.
I will also try to bite my tongue on any sexist assumptions made here (and from what I gather, there are a few.)

The author had a lot of good insight into how to keep your marriage alive and keep the focus on you as a couple. Many of it was common sense, but I think people often forget how important it is to make time for one another. Better to borrow it from the library than purchase it, but I would recommend it.

This was a short read. Oprah offered it free on her web site, so I sat down with it and finished it within a day. It was insightful near the end when it gave marriage advice. Other than that, it was a little monotonous to get through. Overall, it's worth a few minutes of time.

Really interesting and full of what seems to be great information. Would recommend it to all my girlfriends.

listening to an audio-book so I don't see the worksheets but I'm more interested in the concepts anyway.... Really good so far.

ITs good. A great perspective, if you are willing to make this leap and know that it takes two to make a marriage work.

Free ebook from Oprah. I'm sure this book is not actually targeted for me, but hey, if it's free, I'll read it.
