    This book can be a great source of help, encouragement, and understanding for couples where one spouse is struggling with sexual addiction. This book can help the nonaddicted spouse to understand the addiction better and will help to explain how people recover. This helped me feel more patient and helped me understand that my husband's addiction had nothing to do with my character or value. That's worth far more than the price of the book. ;) This book can be a great source of help, encouragement, and understanding for couples where one spouse is struggling with sexual addiction.

You can only heal if you heal your inner broken child.

    This was a groundbreaking work in a particularly devastating flavor of addiction. The scholarship behind it and the importance of the work is complemented by the conversational tone of the writing. It was timely and helpful and enlightening and I can never say enough about how enlightening I found it.

    Interesting book. I guess this was the first book that studied sexual misbehavior and found the similarities between them and addictive behaviors. Again, some of the cases were a little blunt, but portrayed in an objective manner. Very insightful. I'll probably read it again. Interesting book.

    I am a huge fan of Patrick Carnes so I knew it would be great and I was not disappointed. There is so much information in this book it’s unbelievable. It combines personal experience from sex addicts with education about the disease. It is everything a person would ever need to know about sex addiction. But yet he still has other incredible books that are worth reading. God truly works through Patrick Carnes.

    This is a tough read. But has also given me hope that I have struggled to gain. I think mostly it is because I see a path that I can travel that is clearly laid out. Even though I read this to understand my husbands addiction I see I have a lot of work ahead of myself too. I was also thankful i have already begun some of what he says will help. So very thankful to read this book.

    I actually didn't finish the book, but rather just stopped reading. It was a bit too intense for me and didn't meet my need at the time. Maybe I'll try again some other time. I think it's an important book for the subject matter. I actually didn't finish the book, but rather just stopped reading. It was a bit too intense for me and didn't meet my need at the time.

    Very useful and thorough. Well-written and researched. Peppered with stories that helped me relate and prevented the reading from being dull or boring.

    My rating is conservative as I did not complete the book. From the first 60 or so pages I perused, and the sections after I skimmed, I think this book is a solid discussion and potential assistance for understanding sexual addiction.

    This book was very informative on addiction, some of the material and descriptions were to graphic. The book talks a lot about the behavior of this addiction, and not enough about solutions for my taste.
