My husband WAS a porn/sex addict. He read George Collins first book ("breaking the Cycle") and called him for help through his counseling services. It changed our life and our marriage and I will always be grateful to Mr. Collins for having the courage to write his book. "Breaking the Cycle" and Compulsion Solutions did more than any "expert" or "professional" for us. They author as well as his counselors are REAL experts- they overcame their addiction. No degree can replace real life. In regards to the second book geared toward couples, I must be honest, I can tell his wife wrote most of the second book. To me, it's very wishy-washy and contradictory in parts...which is not AT ALL how the first book was. She is probably a nice lady and they both meant well in authoring this together, but she simply hasn't' lived through the hell. She gets the "cleaned up" version of George and the luxury to not be deeply offended by porn..all porn. She was not the one who had her heart ripped to pieces by him and then asked to "bear with him". I felt at times the second book was patronizing and I could spot from a mile away that she had never truly suffered from his previous sexual addiction. My proof for this theory actually came pretty quick, on page 10, when she says something to the effect of, "pornography is OK in normal and healthy relationship." That sentence broke my heart all over again. I ripped out that page and even threw the book away after I struggled to get through it. I think she undid alot of his work with that statement. Porn is not "victim-less". It's not a light-hearted tool to use in the bedroom. It has consequences. It hurts those viewing it and those in it. To condone it in a book that tries to undo porn's damage is simply idiotic. I hope that they revise this book and take out at least that ridiculous sentence/notion. (Ironically it is not included on the sample book preview on Amazon. I wonder why?) Perhaps they would also get some real input from wives of former addicts and put that in the "revised" book. This book was disappointing. I suggest readers (especially wives affected from this) buy the first book- that was beyond excellent and get "Boundaries" by Henry Cloud and Robert Townsend and Shelley Lubben's book "Truth Behind the Fantasy of Porn". She was a former porn star. I think she would be saddened and insulted by his wife's "expert" statement.
