Partners of sex addicts are discussing the reality of trauma in their lives in many blogs, and this one includes a discussion of the new book. This is a link to one of those discussions.
Dear Barb & Marsha,
I found your book by reading "the other bed" blog. I ordered it immediately and I am almost finished. I can't tell you how much this book affirms my feelings and acknowledges my reality! The trauma model is not patriarchal, an analysis very different from the co-addict paradigm which seems to blame the woman and label her sick when what she seeks is safety. I also love that you provide a map for healing. This is the best text I've come across about sex addiction and recovery. I am going to encourage my 12-Step Co-SLAA to read your phenomenal, life-affirming healing manifesto. You are going to change the SA community with this amazing book.
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!
