Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Pulling together the current literature, this lucid book provides a clear understanding of the many patterns of jealousy. A comprehensive test determines the nature and extent of a partner's jealousy and the reader's response. Then sound advice on dealing with jealousy is offered, including a chapter with ten steps for surviving in a jealous marriage. The book is cautious in its advice; recognizing that jealousy is often accompanied by violence, it does not push the reader into precipitous action. Chapters on ending the relationship and how and when to get advice will be very helpful. A useful addition to all public collections. John M. Haynes, Mediation Assocs., New York
