Has anyone read Torn Asunder by Dave Carder? My new IC wants me to read it.

I began reading it early on during my reading frenzy after DDay. Unfortunately for me Dave Carder wording triggered me terribly and I gave up on the book and workbook. He mentioned several times how the BS had to own up to "their part in the affair" and I just did not want to read any more of what he had to say. A couple of people in my BAN group have read it and were able (with struggle) to get past that and say it is very good. Just be forewarned.

This was one of the first books I read that gave me hope. I don't remember the blame thing now, but in my defense, I read it at the point where I wasn't able to sleep because it was all so new

Overall, I think it was more helpful than harmful

I'm with jollum. I had to chuck it. I refused to take any blame in my H's A. Not then-Not Ever.

I also started reading this shortly after the discovery. Hate this book. Like you said, wants me to own up to my part. Which part would that be I wonder? Maybe the part where I was sacrificing everything for his dream to get through school and supporting the whole family? Maybe the part where I got seriously ill with my last daughter and diagnosed with a heart problem? I think this guy can shove it. Liked the book until it tried to tell me I was at fault. Eff that! My WS and I had a much better relationship when he apparently thought it was bad than we do now.

I am with Jollum, started reading it and didnt agree with it my part of the affair. None of it was my fault.

I read it most of it. I didn't get the blame feeling from it though. I did like how he described the different kind of affairs.
