According to authors Julia Keys and Jacqui Coles, infidelity has a script, in that the same reasons, excuses and reactions occur over and over, no matter who you are - a viewpoint that certainly seems borne out by the testimonies included in this book. From learning to spot age-old telltale signs that a bloke is playing away from home (among them “stained underpants” and “throwing out his faithful old boxers for new underwear”), to dealing with the shock, and how to emerge a stronger, happier person, this covers the experience from start to finish, setting out questions to help readers weather the roughest of storms.
The book includes a number of shocking essentialist views from philandering husbands. Take 57-year-old Chris, for example, who tells us, “I think there is an in-built desire in men to mate and in a way, it drives them to perform like stag deer, not just in the rutting season, but throughout the whole year.” No Chris, you’re a human being, not an animal, not a “top stag”! And I’m afraid I struggled with the authors’ view that “you might be more inclined to accept this behaviour from a man in his younger years.” That aside, there’s some valuable advice on how to get through the post-relationship grieving process and be kind to yourself, all delivered in a chatty, down-to-earth style.
The MANScript is the ultimate guide to surviving and thriving after infidelity by Julia Keys (ex-wife of TV presenter Richard Keys) and Jacqui Coles. There is a script to infidelity, it's repeated time and time again, and this book will help you identify that script....and more. This is NOT a man-bashing book, the aim is to help those who have been cheated on to feel empowered rather than weakened by their experiences. Filled with real life testimonials, The MANScript will help you navigate the tumultuous times to come out stronger and happier.

Julia Keys and Jacqui Coles are the co-founders of www.keys2life.co.uk. They first became friends as teenagers, and although their lives took separate paths with differing experiences, fate always brought them together again. Frequently, those reunions occurred in the most unexpected of places and always at a time when one of them was struggling with an issue in their life. A true friend is there when you need them and none more so than when you are dealing with the effects of being betrayed. Julia and Jacqui's friendship has been their survival mechanism and they hope that ...More About Julia Keys, Jacqui Coles
