I found the most interesting part of this book to contain the quotes of the sex addicts (SAs) themselves and how they belittled, controlled and verbally abused their spouses. It gave me insight into the SAs mentality.
The women cited in this book, typically the deceived betrayed partners of the SAs, were so codependent it made me sick. One woman went as far as dying her hair red because her SA was interested in redheads.
On the most part I was completely let down by this book and wanted to burn it by the end. Claudia makes a few good points which I find are easily forgotten in comparison to her bad points and lack of ability to identify blatant verbal abuse.

You may ask "Why do her subjects stay when they have been betrayed?" The answers are found in family of origin dynamics.
Claudia explains how the development of a stonger self comes from facing the truth about your relationship. Through the process of recovery, you learn to live in your truth as a stonger and healthier partner.
