    Quick, thorough advice--could not put it down!

    This book was such a reassurance to my insecurity from being stabbed in the back at a job a few years ago--boy, I wish this book would have been available in 2007!! Dr. Laura, as always, cuts right down to the chase with in-your face-honesty and common sense, something lacking in our society and especially media today. I enjoyed every minute of it, and the quotes were a wonderful way to reinforce what she was saying in each chapter. Anyone who reads this book not coming away with a clear answer of how to handle betrayal the right way just does not want to hear the truth.

    Clarification and answers

    Dr. Laura clarifies betrayal. I was hoping for a formula for revenge but in the end she restated what I already knew. The best revenge is living a good life.

    A waste of time

    An utter waste of time from a celebrity who lacks any kindness or credibility.

    Excellent, sound advice. I've observed (and experienced) that being betrayed leads so many to being obsessively paralyzed by the situation which means that the betrayer continues to be in charge. The author offers both solutions and insight to getting past it, along with many examples, several of them personal to her. She's no Pollyanna - she explores the issue from all sides. Well done and well worth the read.

    Dr Laura tells it like it is. Sensitive and inspirational are words that come to mind. I feel like I personally know her and appreciate her insights.

    Good for me...

    Short, easy read. Her personal agenda is obvious from the beginning and I could appreciate that since I could relate. She presents reality based insight, bottom line, this is how it is, information and ideas. But, if you are looking for an indepth, detached study of betrayal, this is not it.

    personal experience?

    from when I listened to her show over 10 years ago she may have been credible. Now she is a loon. She probably wrote this from a perceived reality. I'm glad she's gone. Please don't encourage her by buying this book!
