I indicated that I bought several books on this subject from Amazon and this is one of two that I did pass on to my co-worker who thanked me after reading it. I believe this book would be beneficial to any woman who is involved with or is considering being involved with a married man. One of the single best points of this book is that it is not morally ambiguous. In fact, the first sentence of the preface begins with '... dating married men is both inappropriate and licentious'. Chapter two is clearly titled 'Avoid Dating a Married Man'. Some other books I saw were little more than paper backed versions of tawdry tabloid gossip but this book is authored in a way which leaves no reader wondering if there is a way to justify what she is involved in (or he, if a man should read this book). It clearly condemns married dating and offers a plethora of warnings in every chapter that a woman who dates a married man is headed for heartbreak at the very least. Author Dr. Gloria Bonds interviewed 250 women who dated married men and she compiled several lists which shed valuable light on this subject. One is a list of excuses that married men use to prolong or 'explain' their infidelity and another is a list of excuses that women give for dating married men. While these are not the only compilations included, they certainly are indicative of the book's content. Another strength is that this book clearly delineates how a boyfriend is not the same as an affair and lists why. My one criticism of this book is the title. It implies that the book is a 'how to' manual of how to conduct an affair which it is not. On the other hand, the book does address the subject of 'If one does date a married man then you should expect...' and it lists the obvious drawbacks that women face when romantically involved with someone who is married. This is definitely worth a read for the person facing temptation because it does not glorify adultery or make it look glamourous.
