the state of affairs by esther perel

i picked this book upon seeing an interesting review in the guardian (back when books section was worth checking).

have to admit that my expectations were coloured by the fact that esther perel is a psychologist, living and working in usa. so i expected some level of moralisation since the subject of the book is romantic infidelity, but this was a good lesson on recognising your own bias. dr perel wrote based on her professional experience and research, which was more international than i expected, and does an admirable job of not casting judgement either way.

while it was an interesting and educational read, i am drawing a blank on whom to recommend it to.
