Women's Focus 8/24 Noon: We have all experienced betrayal at some time in our lives. It might have been by a lover, by a friend, in our job or in our family. The new book “Betrayed: A Survivor’s Guide to Lying, Cheating, and Double Dealing” highlights actual stories of betrayal. It offers a roadmap for how to deal with it and, sometimes, how to get even.

The related website offers a self-assessment and a chance to share stories of betrayal.
