"Not Just Friends" by Shirley Glass, PhD.

It was our compass right out of the gate.

Especially relevant for the workplace affair that "happened out of nowhere".

If we had read this book prior to four months ago, he would have realized what he was doing much sooner.

It's all I can do not to send a copy to every person in his workplace.

I bow to those who keep their hearts open when it is most difficult, those who refuse to keep their armor on any longer than they have to, those who recognize the courage at the heart of vulnerability. - Jeff Brown

This book helped my husband understand what an EA is and how easily they can happen if we don't protect our marriage. This book saved me and really helped me understand all that I was thinking and feeling was normal. I highy recommend this book!

The book helped me tremendously. Fully the best single book, of the many I read while going through the whole craziness of infidelity and then divorce.

I thought the book was so excellent I ended up giving a copy to my husband. He claims he and OW read it, and they both thought nothing in the book applied to them, or our situation.
