Format: Paperback
I read this book, and found it to be an amazing page-turner! It is a fascinating tale of our time, beautifully articulated and insightful in its presence. At the beginning of the book, we are left thinking - 'well, she believed him' - but by the end we understand why. Mary Turner Thomson has written a heart-felt account of the perils, misfortunes and consequences of our daily actions, and explained these against a backdrop of trust, common humanity and decency. I applaud her...

I had heard "The Other Mrs Jordan" aka Mary Turner Thomson being interviewed on the radio late one night and listened to the amazing story she told the presenters.
I had to buy the book and don't regret it for a minute. An insight into how sociopaths operate and how they use unbelievable tactics to maintain their story and hide the truth even going as far as physical harm.
Stopping at nothing purely to achieve wehat he wanted, Mr Jordan, comes across as a lovely guy but underneath is a different person.
A highly recommended book and well worth a read for both men and women.

I think I must have heard the same radio interview as the previous reviewer, and it finally opened my eyes to the fact that my ex-partner, who I'd blessedly just told where to go (finally) was a sociopath.

Thanks to the condition being given a 'name' I then went to a plethora of websites and textbooks on the disorder, which made me understand what had happened totally.

So finally...I decided to read the book that in one way or another started my recovery and I'm must say I'm very glad I did. An amazing story; I had to read it all today. Anyone who's gone through this will recognise the methods employed by the sociopath and how downright WEIRD things can get. Anyone who hasn't will be gripped all the same.

Good on you, Mary - in your own words, 'I hope something wonderful happens to you today'!

Format: Paperback
Like previous reviewers I also found the book compelling and read it in a couple of days. It is a moving and painfully honest account of one woman's suffering at the hands of a sociopath. Mary leaves no stone unturned in examining how an intelligent and caring woman like herself came to be taken in in this way, which makes for a satisfying read as she predicts the questions which readers may have in their minds - predominantly - but how ??- and sets about answering them. She also generously provides a list of websites and sources of information to help others at the end of the book. For anyone tempted to criticize those who are taken in by con artists, I urge you to read this book and then claim " It couldn't happen to me".

Format: Paperback
This is a must read for any Woman or Man that has been cheated on for various reasons. I couldn't put this down and I had to keep reminding myself that this was a true story. I think Mary is so brave to have put pen to paper and find all the other Mrs. Jordans aswell. She has picked up the pieces and got on with her life for her 3 children I don't think this is all about internet dating (be careful of course) but do we ever know our husbands / partners???

Format: Paperback
this was a book i found i couldn't possibly put down, it was a brilliant read and much better than most of the 'tragic life story' books you will find on the shelves of book shops. what made it so interesting was that it was written from the view of how she felt at the time,as if she was writing the book at the time of it all rather than looking back on it afterwards, which really made you understand exactly how she felt and why it was that she was so able to believe this man's lies throughout her time with him.it makes you realise that you don't have to be 'dumb' to fall for this kind of person and more than anything this book should certainly make you aware of the dangers that present themselves when it comes to online dating!i would definately recommend this book to anyone, once again a brilliant read.

I had already heard a bit about this story and was intrigued to find out more. I was surprised to find that I literally couldn't put it down. I read it very quickly (I am usually quite a slow reader) and was amazed at the story. It is well written and gripping (and what's more it's from real life!).I highly recommend this book.

Attention all women.....please read this book!! I have just finished reading this amazing story and have already passed my book on to several friends who, like me, couldn't put it down. Mary's story touched a nerve with me and I think there is a warning here for everyone to exercise caution and be so careful to research who they are dating......especially if meeting someone online. The depth of Will Jordan's lies, deceit and betrayal knew/knows no bounds (he continued his modus operandi on his return to US). Thank you Mary for sharing this deeply disturbing and personal story and for being brave enough to expose this sociopath in the hope that he will be thwarted from continuing to hurt and deceive again......
