Anatomy of an Affair: How Affairs, Attractions, and Addictions Develop, and How to Guard Your Marriage Against Them
When it comes to adultery, never say, “It won’t happen to me.”
Just when you think your marriage is safe from adultery is when you may be the most vulnerable.
With eye-opening stories, clinical insights, and up-to-date data, Dave Carder reveals what adulterers learned the hard way—and what they want the rest of us to know to save us the pain.
Carder points out that we are living in a sex-saturated culture full of hurting people that are looking for love and belonging. He says every single person is either at risk for a close call/affair, or they are in denial.

This book is a great choice for anyone who is married or in a long term relationship. It is as much about "close call" relationships as actually affairs. As you read through the situations you can see how something that starts innocently enough can go too far really quickly.
It was informative and I do think many people will find it helpful. It dredged on quite a bit and took a while to get to the point.
This would be a great resource for couples who want to strengthen their marriage as well a couples who are struggling. Helpful to marriage counselors, pastors, marriage mentors, and divorce recovery leaders
