I recently read your book “Forgiving and Not Forgiving.”  Unforgivers who have rational, healthy, valid and moral reasons for not forgiving do need to be recognized.Reading your book was like having a conversation with an intelligent, rational friend. Thank you.

“Dear Dr. Safer,

I just found you online and immediately ordered three of your books (The Normal One, Forgiving and Not Forgiving, and Death Benefits). Just reading your website has provided more validation than a lifetime of therapy and support by extended family and friends.”

“I just finished reading your wonderful book, Forgiving & Not Forgiving, for the second time. Again, I found what you had to say profound and applicable to my life. As I find my way through intimate betrayal, you helped me keep on my path of doing it my way. I marked nearly every page of your book and found myself re-reading long passages.  Each time, I say, ‘Yes!  Someone gets it!’ Thank you for your brave candor then and for your helpful insights now.”

“I watched your interview on “Insight” on Australian television recently and was so impressed with your frank and honest approach to ‘forgiving’ that I asked my bookstore to find me a copy of your book Forgiving and Not Forgiving. I am now feeling free for the first time in my life. Your TV interview and the book have come at a perfect time for me. I have read some chapters three or four times, and each time, get more from it.”
