Infidelity: Why Men and Women Cheat

We rated this book:


Even though Infidelity is an academic volume written by psychiatrist K. P. Rosenberg, the subject of why men and women cheat on their partners is a fascinating topic for many non-academic readers. Rosenberg’s writing is light, easy to read, and broken up into small, convenient sections and three main parts: Biology and the Basics; The Taste for New Sex; and Discovery, Disclosure, and Moving Forward Toward Healing. This topic involves anthropologists, sociologists, psychologists, neuroscientists, and more. “This book is about the role that our brains, our minds (or psychology), and our culture play in infidelity.” Following discussion of the basics, Rosenberg delves into the different ways people stray from their traditional marriages, and then, in the final part, into solutions and practical guidelines to the infidelity addiction. Yet the tendency to cheat is innate to humans, and it easily turns into true addiction, like sexual compulsivity.

The author “offers many reasonable paths away from self-destruction.” He suggests ten easy steps to marital bliss and sexual nirvana to overcome both emotional and sexual involvements. The text is illustrated by dozens and dozens of real-life case histories, partly within the text but also as extensive sidebars.
