Two hundred cheaters and non-cheaters who participated in the author's study gave surprising answers to questions about their marriages and affairs. Among the cheaters, dissatisfaction with the emotional aspects of their marriages—and the resulting feelings of isolation, disapproval, criticism, and lack of appreciation and thoughtfulness—were far stronger than complaints about sex, communication, or physical attractiveness. The author follows these fascinating results with warmly framed recommendations for both spouses to minimize the likelihood that husbands will stray. Jonathan Davis's performance is thick with drama and gravitas, even when the material shifts from exposé to optimistic insights and suggestions. His reading of case studies and the statements of participants also sounds affected—but not enough to keep this marriage advice audio from being accessible and helpful.
