The best relationship I ever had with a woman ended abruptly when she found someone new. Our relationship had been built on trust and openness, so much so that she once said she "never had to wear a mask" when we were together. But when it ended she wouldn't talk to me. I desperately needed to know the how and the why. For almost a year I spun my wheels trying to understand what had happened, why I felt so awful. I counseled, I talked to friends, I read the books in my library's self-help section. All these things were fine, they all had some insights, except nothing addressed the heart of my pain.
And then I came to this book in the stacks. It is beautifully written. It is logical and sensible. It shows a deep understanding of this most important of all things in our lives. And it went straight to the core of my heartbreak. Every page had a sentence or paragraph or concept that was stunning. It took me a month to read half the book, because I could not read more than a few pages before I had to put it down and think about it. I can't praise a book more than that. Finally the healing could start for me. If that wasn't enough, there is also some how-to guidance for minimizing the chances of betrayal in the future. I am still thinking through all that but it feels right. This book is a one-of-a-kind for me.

Betrayal is one of the most painful and difficult experiences in any relationship. It's so charged that many stay victimized by their own hurt and anger for many years. John Amodeo's excellent book addresses the issues of betrayal in depth and with great sensitivity and intelligence. First he gives us the gift of understanding and then shows us practical steps we can take to resolve our feelings and enter into new relationships freshly, with confidence and awareness.
Like John's earlier book, Being Intimate, Love and Betrayal will deepen your relationships, but just as important will deepen your contact with your self. Take the time to read John's books. They're a healing balm in a time of need.

Being betrayed by someone we love and trust is a devastating thing. The author of this book discusses his clinical experiences and the process involved when healing from an experience of betrayal. Just the fact that the author explains things in a caring and gentle manner makes this book very therapeutic to read. But it's not only just that. This book gives people with experiences of betrayal hope and direction. If you are struggling with experiences of betrayal, I'd definitely recommend this book. Another book that has helped me considerably on this topic is "The Ever-Transcending Spirit" by Toru Sato. It is an unbelievably good book that explains many psychological things but one of them is the coping and recovery process of betrayal and loss. If you are trying to move on from an experience of betrayal, these books are both very very helpful.
