An affair: It can rob a couple of their relationship, their happiness, their very identity. And yet this extremely common human experience is so poorly understood. Adultery has existed since marriage was invented, and so, too, the prohibition against it - in fact it has a tenacity that marriage can only envy. Iconic couples' therapist and best-selling author of Mating in Captivity Esther Perel returns with a groundbreaking and provocative look at infidelity, arguing for a more nuanced and less judgmental conversation about our transgressions.

This book is AMAZING, life-changing even! So relatable and thought-provoking. Such great storytelling, paving the way to vulnerability as I have never experienced before. Such a beautiful gamut of input and perspective! I am not alone; you are not alone; we are not alone! Esther Perel, the author, is also the one reading and her examples, lessons, and thoughts come alive through her voice. I am so, thoroughly, enthralled with this comprehensive work that she has written.
