Historically, cheaters get the glamour. They get starshine in Hollywood movies, porn, novels, comics and gossip. Trashing marriage vows by jumping into bed with somebody else is commonly granted a patina of sparkle, charisma, and fizzy fun drama. The dumped spouse is just a marginal walk-on part, the loser, the reject, the chump.

Not anymore.

Chump Lady creates a universe where cheaters are held to account for their destructive and morally bankrupt actions, and where chumped spouses can heal and flourish after their marriage has been destroyed. Chump Lady's book takes the glow, the pain and the power of infidelity and hands it to the surviving spouse, where it belongs. She's got a strong, capable and lively prose style, and friends, you don't want to be on the opposing team when she starts up. She relentlessly, accurately and powerfully busts on all the skanky tricks that cheaters pull on their spouses. She tells how to tease sanity from the crazy purgatory of marriage to a cheater. Oh, and you'll be laughing to tears while reading it. She also lays out a very pragmatic, concise and useful guide for legally protecting yourself and your children when dealing with a cheater spouse.

This is an essential guide for anybody who has ever gone through the hell of infidelity, regardless of role - chump, cheater, co-cheater, children of same, and innocent/guilty bystanders. So that's about everyone. Seriously, this one's a winner for any sentient human.

Don't just get the book, do yourself another favor - check out Chump Lady's blog. Warning: it will change your mind.

On the Chump Lady blog, we call the day we discover that a partner has betrayed us "D-Day." And the chumps on the blog write their stories of the devastation of betrayal: the inability to eat or sleep; the physical pain, the emotional trauma, and the paralyzing fear of finding out that the very person who is supposed to have your back in hard times is the one putting the knife in you and lying about it. Infidelity is not about sex--or not just about sex. It's about one person's unilateral decision to blow up the contract of marriage or a committed relationship. It's about agonizing that your kids' lives will never be the same. It's about wondering how to pay the mortgage or whether the affair partner will end up raising your kids. And in the middle of this terrible pain and shock, every decision you make has important consequences. Tracy Schorn has written a guide to this terrible life passage, one that can help men and women get their feet under them, make decisions that protect them and their children, and rebuild their lives in the aftermath of finding out a partner has been unfaithful. This is a book for anyone dealing with infidelity but her advice also applies equally well to those who only suspect infidelity, to those whose partners are abusing them in other ways, and for those who want to help a friend or family member who has been betrayed.

Surviving infidelity is not easy or pretty.
When you learn that the life you thought you had was a fantasy, you need a lot of help. One of the first things you need is someone who endured the tsunami of betrayal and survived. With this book, Tracy can help you cope, breathe, get your bearings and live through the nightmare.
When you look at your spouse and say, "who are you?", "what happened to my life" and "what happened to person I thought I was married to?" (think Dorothy caught in the tornado), this book will get you through.
Tracy tells it like it is with nuggets of hard-earned wisdom. Her wit, humor, artwork and advice will get you out of the fog and into the light. She will help you find your balance, restore your faith in yourself, provide expert guidance and really be your new best friend. Trust me, you will need her as your new best friend!
Tracy has a way with words and is brutally honest - she has been there, done that and heard it all.
She has helped many others and created a Chump Nation of good, kind, trusting people who were smacked in the head by infidelity. Tracy is living proof that you can survive, thrive and be mighty...whatever mighty means to you.
Chump Lady has your back!

As a huge fan of Tracy's blog and searching all over the web for insight after I was chumped and traumatized,Tracy was the only voice of reason! With love, care, intelligence and incredible creativity she clearly explained what I had just experienced and wrote all of the feelings I felt. Why? Because she knows first hand and she ain't no dummy!!! Since she comes from a place of strength it really rang true with me and helped me figure out the insanity that I had just experienced. All I can say is Thanks Tracy.Buy this book, you will be soooooo happy you did!!! Plus you will laugh out loud.

Chump Lady, from her blog to this book, provides ways to make sense of a world turn upside down by a cheater. With wit and humor, Chump Lady helps fellow chumps dump their rags of shame and find their own agency. I highly recommend this book and her blog for anyone who desires to understand a world where cheaters exist and where chumps do not have to put up with the abuse any more. Thanks, Chump Lady for all your straight-shooting wisdom and for writing this book!
