Avoiding the Greener Grass Syndrome, Book Review

Avoiding the Greener Grass Syndrome by Nancy C. Anderson

 Extramarital affairs are certainly not the social taboo that they once were, and may be more prevalent now than ever. Unfortunately, Christians are not exempt. With the anonymity of the Internet and the privacy of personal mobile phones, the temptation to cheat on one's spouse has fertile ground to grow.

After straying to the other side of this marital fence--and returning to find forgiveness and restoration--Anderson brings this practical book about predicting and preventing an extramarital affair. Based on the principle that the grass is always greener when it's watered, Avoiding the Greener Grass Syndrome focuses on how to grow a beautiful marriage by establishing six protective hedges around it.
This second edition includes a new chapter on repairing marriage following infidelity, as well as an appendix considering the Andersons' own marriage before and after the affair from Ron's point of view.

My Thoughts: I was given this book to review by the publisher, but that doesn't in any way effect my rating of it. While I'm not the demographic for this book, I was immediately interested in it because I'm someone who's had that "greener grass syndrome" myself, and saw a lot of positive things about the first edition of this book, so I figured it was well worth checking out the second edition. I absolutely love the style of this book. Nancy writes it has the story of her affair (and marriage) and it's hard to put down. Throughout there is so much information on mending that it's a great read even for those who aren't dealing with affairs in their marriage.
