I was wondering if anyone has read this book and can provide feedback before I buy.

This was actually the first "A" related book I ready right after Dday 9 months ago.

It was just OK, not great but worth the read. I would try to get it from your local library first before dishing out the money for it. I found my library had more than one copy.

I read it and I have to agree with others saying it was just-okay. I expected more and it just didn't deliver.

Thank you all for the feedback. Tied of spending money on not so good books.

Jay,

I have read about 20 books. Some were great and some not so great and some were worhtless. If you want to share a little about what you are looking for in a book I might be able to help.

Not sure if you are reconciling or not or what your status is.

I read PISD and I really thought it was helpful in some ways. I didn't hate it. Sometimes I have read a good book at the wrong time in my journey and it wasn't helpful to me because of timing.

Here's another thread on this book: http://survivinginfidelity.com/forums.asp?tid=401397

Someone called it rigid, and I agree. At this point, I'd also say 'simplistic'.

It's interesting, but regular PTSD stuff seems just as to the point.

If someone wants my copy, PM me...especially if you want to trade your 'Not Just Friends' for my 'PISD'.
