This book goes into excellent detail in explaining the true scope of this addiction. While a lot of other books may get lost in the clinical definitions, this book explains in real life terms how this addiction truly affects a person and those around them, as well as its root causes. If there was any disappointment with the book, it is in the solution to the problem - join a 12 step program. Given how difficult the addiction is to overcome, I understand that this is what needs to be done. I guess I just expected a bit more from the book in this area however.

These are hard subjects for the average man to grasp. First, that you have a problem with let's say pornography like I had, and being unfaithful to your spouse....like I did. Yes, I was like alot of you might be now. Thinking why on earth would I ever come clean with my wife about ALL my past sexual relationships outside our marriage? One of my closest friends, Dave, thought I had gone off the deep end and lost my ever-lovin' mind!!! However, after the initial shock was over, and my wife had time to gather her thoughts, and also see how I was truly humbled, and wanted us to heal and grow "together" there has been such a bonding between us. "No more secrets, and no more lies" between us now. There was lots and lots of questions she asked me, obviously, and lots of questions this book asks you to answer. You must allow Christ Jesus to do all He can to change your hearts, and bring the two of you into His Perfect Will. This has made all the difference in our healing process. To quote my wife; "I'm in love with the new you" Intimacy has never been closer and sweeter than after I read, and followed the suggestions in this book. No one can force you to change. However, if you truly want your marriage to last, I highly recommend your buying this book and seeing just what you're made of...Spiritually. Your marriage will never be the same. I promise! Joseph.
