Sharma, a clinical psychologist, provides first-person histories from three of his patients: sisters Ashley and Sabrina, whose jealous father murdered their mother and killed himself; and Holly, wife of a jealous, ultimately suicidal, husband. Using the histories as a platform, Sharma provides a wealth of accessible, succinct, and on-the-mark information about insane jealousy. He differentiates between types of jealousy, discusses symptoms and behaviors, and provides guidelines for getting help. Since spouses of jealous partners often blame themselves, Sharma's clear-cut checklists should help them identify irrational behavior for what it really is. A minor problem is the first-person narratives, which are overlong and often so colorless they render the tragic banal. ("To this day, I thank God that Dad did not destroy Mother's face... The shotgun blast had entered her abdomen. Her flesh and internal organs lay outside her body.") Judicious editing could have preserved all the important details and heightened the impact of these stories. One final question: since the insanely jealous (at least in this book) are largely men and their victims women, why is the jealous, red-eyed demon on the cover a woman? -- From Independent Publisher

BUT, save your money - the first reviewer was correct in all ways, i.e., poorly written and not helpful for a person wanting answers. I have read some excerpts from his other publications, i.e. conjugal paranoia and that was okay - but go elsewhere for solutions - believe me.
