Crash Course Reviews

After 20 years of marriage, I was devastated by his affair. Without your course, I'd either be divorced or still living with a cheating husband. Of course I wish it had never happened, but with your help I am now in Phase 2 of my marriage and feeling happier than I would have thought possible. - Ava

I spent untold months and money on a counselor that only took me closer to the brink of divorce. You helped me undo that damage within days. My saved marriage is proof that your approach works. - Claude

I bought your program at 3 am on a Wednesday after my wife said she loved him. By the weekend, she was blocking his number and saying she wanted to fix our marriage. Thank you for sharing your secrets. - Brent

I feel like anyone dealing with a cheating partner should be FORCED to buy your course. - Ling

I read a couple popular marriage books and dragged him to counseling. Those had zero effect. All they did was enable the miserable status quo to continue, with me putting up with it, always hoping tomorrow would be different. Your course cut through all the BS and double-talk and was truly the voice of clarity and reason. I probably listened to it six times, and each time I seemed to learn something new – you really have been my lifeline. You have a hug and a nice cup of tea waiting for you if you’re ever in town. Love ya xo - Constance

You checked off every box.  Even now I'll re-listen to certain parts if I feel us slipping and then we're good again. I've also recommended it to a couple friends who are dealing with their own nightmares. Thank you, Debra. - Allen

What I loved about your program was learning how to make that shift from me doing all the work (asking him questions, checking his phone) and worrying, to him finally fighting for our marriage. Thank you for showing me how to make it about us instead of just about him, and for still managing to keep things positive and fair to both of us. - Seanna

I can't imagine finding more forthright or useful guidance to get through something like this and come out with a stronger marriage. You have a personal yet sometimes forceful tone, and I needed that. He ended the affair, and we are doing better than we have in years. - Anika

As if my wife's affair wasn’t bad enough, she kept flip-flopping between saying she’d end it and saying she wasn’t sure, since our marriage might not survive anyway. So she didn’t want to risk ending the affair. And yet she was willing to risk our marriage? It didn't make sense until I listened to your program. We are doing better now than we have in a long time, Deb, and I’ve used every part of this program over the past few months. - Chris

I stumbled upon your program less than 48 hours after I found out about my husband's year-long affair. He was stubborn and refused to end it. I was almost in hysterics, thinking I wasn't young enough, slim enough, pretty enough. Your voice calmed me down and got me thinking straight. I had my doubts that a program like this would work, but I decided my marriage was worth the risk. I listened to you and did what I thought was best. He ended the affair at that point. Your course helped me see there were many reasons the affair happened, and my husband and I are now working together for a better tomorrow. I often re-listen to you to regain focus when I need to and still rely on the material. Thank you for saving my marriage. - Iris

I had very strong feelings for a good friend and was really struggling to end it. Your program helped me see what I was doing in a big picture way that made me look at it rationally and make some decisions about my life. You helped me see it from all angles which I definitely wasn't doing. I know without a doubt this saved my marriage because my husband was close to leaving me, although I was too caught up in things to see that. So thank you from the bottom of my heart. - Alexis

The day after I listened to this program, my wife asked me if I’d had shock therapy. So that says it all. Thanks for having the kahunas to lay it all out for me without making me feel worse than I already did. - Trevor

I've walked out of two counselors offices because they were $%#@ing patronizing, religious, clueless, or all three. I know I can be defensive, but I can't listen to someone who doesn't know what they're talking about. I got goosebumps listening to you, itemizing and simplifying exactly what I was doing and feeling. I can't believe I sat through the whole thing, and then the next day, played it again. It was like you wrote it for me. Sorry for swearing. - Louis

I've read every marriage communication book in the English language. I've bought more spice it up books than any woman should own. Nothing has come close to this outstanding program. THANK YOU. - Magie

I had lost all hope, but the very first strategy I used from your course worked. I kept using them and they kept working. You 100% saved my marriage. - Milan

I never fell out of love with my wife, I was just more bored and for whatever reason that manifested as resentment. Belittling. She did the same to me, and to say that things had cooled off in the bedroom is an understatement. I listened first, then she did. Hearing different speakers, the female and male, made the content feel even more relevant and interesting. A great program. - F.L.K.

If my husband wasn't ignoring or criticizing me, he was acting like a total jerk. I hadn't felt actual love from him in years, never mind something as impossible as respect. A month after this wonderful program, and we're better than ever. He looks at me in a totally different way and it makes me feel so good about myself. - Jean

I had no idea why I was so angry all the time, but my wake-up call came when my wife asked me for a divorce. Had I not binged this program over the weekend and made some drastic changes, she would've been gone on Monday. It prevented me from losing my wife and making the worst mistake of my life. I needed to hear every word of this. I can't believe how clueless I was. - Al

I  needed this.  I needed this.  I needed this. - Edie

As usual, Deb, you're my go-to gal when I need somebody to get me through it all. Your Betrayed Spouses course laid it all out - how to get through her affair - but this course was all about me and I needed that so desperately.  - Arron

Oh Deb, you put those life gurus to shame. They've got nothing on you. Your advice was powerful but unpretentious.  - Vera

This wasn't a course. It was a life-saving spiritual experience for me. I'm not kidding. I have listened to parts of this course every single day since the day I first heard it. It is the only thing that's given me shelter from the chaos of my husband's midlife crisis and given me the strength to do what I needed to do. Thank you my dear friend. - Diya

Debra, yours is the voice that anyone who is going through this gut-churning, head-spinning, soul-sucking ordeal needs to hear. There were times in this program that I wanted to get on a plane, show up at your office and wrap my arms around you. I have him back and I didn't have to sacrifice my dignity to do it. - Katherine

After hearing nothing but "I don't know what I want" for so long from him, it is beyond wonderful to feel wanted by him again. I will always be grateful to you. - Suyin

Panic, rejection, hopelessness. I felt them all. How do I thank you for pulling me and my marriage out of that hole? - Bev

You gave me my clear-thinking and self-respect back. And it was like you scripted the whole thing - he came back on my terms, not just his. - Veronica

You knew every move my husband was making and you showed me how to manage things so he couldn't do any more damage to me or to our marriage. Listening to the course was such a pleasant experience, too: you have a very take-charge, deliberate approach. For me, it was exactly what I needed to stop my emotional flailing. - Toni

From the first word to the last, I felt like you reached into the chaos of my marriage, sat me down at your table and said, "Now listen up, sweetheart, this is what you're going to do." I listened to the whole program twice over the span of one weekend, and then went back and completed the workbook, which to be honest was a very personal and emotional experience for me. So basically within two or three days I was a changed woman! I am still surprised by how precisely your program mirrored what was happening to me, and how fast things changed once I wised up and started using your strategies. Even now I re-listen to certain parts to stay on track. I truly thank you. - Cara

To me, the course was like being sprung from jail. You broke me out of my victim role. - Adrian

She seemed obsessed with him. She couldn't go more than ten minutes without checking her phone, and if I said anything - look out. The fight was on and it was always my fault. I feel like I caught it just in time. The most surprising thing to me has been how her ending that relationship has given us a new beginning as a couple, and you got us there. - Josh

I read your beware-opposite-sex-friendships blog a while back and thought you were crazy. Then I saw the pic my husband's work-out buddy sent him. Her toned tummy and, yep, everything south of there. All the predictable stuff followed. The downplaying, saying I was overreacting, and then eventually admitting that he found her amazing and was just so drawn to her. Ugh. Your course was equal parts inspiring and instructional, with a supportive kick in the ass for good measure. I am indebted to you for saving my marriage and my self-respect. - Kay

I spent a year of my life second-guessing myself and feeling my stomach sink every time my husband leapt from his chair to text her back. That whole year I was either on the verge of tears, panic or rage. Your course gave me the knowledge and the fearless attitude I needed to break free of that. I never would've thought so (especially in the thick of it) but he dropped her fast once he knew he couldn't have it both ways. It actually made our marriage better. There's no doubt he values me more now. - Hina

I'm smiling during the day and sleeping through the night. Thanks for that.- Oliver
