Synopsis

By the author known and respected for her acclaimed books on relationships.

Most of us manage to be monogamous, most of the time, but who cannot imagine themselves committing the 'crime' of adultery? Does being 'faithful' mean the same to everyone? Why DO people have affairs?


Using real life testimony alongside the most current research, Our Cheating Hearts looks at the big questions around love and commitment. It lifts taboos, asks the tough questions and shows how in our progressive time monogamy has become the new ideal.


Some people manage monogamy. For the countless others that don't, Our Cheating Hearts opens the debate and provides the honest approach that's essential.

... Figes's conclusions seem culpably lame...This will hardly help or comfort anyone who has suffered from another's infidelity...Nor does it make for a very entertaining read.
