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.

This book is very short, but jam-packed full of examples, famous quotes and quips, and sage advice dealing with the many forms of betrayal. Dr. Schlessinger is a licensed family therapist, who has her own radio talk show on Sirius XM, and she writes about dealing with the urge for revenge after someone has hurt you through betrayal.She gives a basic understanding about the different causes for betrayal, and the best approach to dealing with being betrayed. In a nutshell, she recommends taking the higher road and ¿finding yourself¿ rather than losing your soul to the consumption and obsession centered with revenge. She even talks about there being a silver lining and that betrayals can bring out good things ¿ mostly from the idea that when someone closes a door, somewhere a window opens. I guess I can see where she¿s coming from. There is one example, to which she illustrates the obsession with revenge. Imagine yourself trying to dig up a cookie from the dirt. All the while, there is a three-course meal sitting nearby, with all the people who love and care about you. You are so obsessed that you don¿t even notice the meal and the people ¿ while they see you and can¿t get you to see them. The whole example really hit home for me ¿ if I remember anything from this book, it¿ll be that example. Excellent work, Dr. S!

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.
