    1. Don't read the first paragraph of this review if you're already drowsy. However far this book may stray from presenting solid statistical evidence or refraining from stereotypes and sweeping generalizations--all admittedly somewhat unavoidable given such a murky, taboo subject as cheating--it is at the very least extremely thought-provoking. Druckerman travels to a number of different countries in order to examine the mores (or lack thereof) and laws governing marriage fidelity, the disparity be [...]

    2. Druckerman’s comparative parenting study, French Children Don’t Throw Food, is a fascinating read whether you have kids or not. I was hoping for the same level of insight from her first book, a sociological investigation of the patterns of adultery worldwide. She travels from France (where she lives) to the United States, Russia, Japan, South Africa, Indonesia and China, interviewing professionals and anonymous adulterers and pondering what makes people cheat and what difference country of o [...]

    3. If, as an American, you've despaired of ever feeling comfortable with the sexual norms of your culture as compared to those of other cultures, this is the book for you. I'm so excited about our skeeved-out Puritan heritage, I could just give Jonathan Edwards a great big hug (at which point he'd have me stoned or similar). In comparison with sexless marriages sustained by groups of men snickering their way through evenings at "hostess clubs" (Japan), rampant gender-skewed infidelity taken as a gi [...]

    4. Not a bad book if you read it with an understanding of its limits -- it is not meant to be a definitive academic resource, but a good, somewhat thought-provoking read about relationships, fidelity and guilt. The author does frame the book as a compare/contrast study of infidelity in the United States and the rest of the world, but the author definitely goes beyond an "us and them" tone in the main body of the work.I'm still left wondering where Canada lands between the US and "the rest of the wo [...]

    5. This is my kind of book - a readable non-fiction on one narrow topic. Even though her research seems largely anecdotal, i enjoyed the differing takes from the various countries and the rationalizations people gave. The Sarkozy stuff was dishy - and that was before Carla Bruni even! When can I read HIS bio?

    6. At times it can seem that globalization of the marketplace and the U.S. dominance of entertainment media worldwide are conspiring to erode cultural differences across the globe. Books like this one, in which Druckerman examines differences in cultural attitudes towards infidelity around the world, or Eric Weiner's recent investigation of happiness by country ("The Geography of Bliss": /review/show/) show us that cultural heterogeneity is still alive and thriving. Druckerman's research for this b [...]

    7. An interesting take on infidelity around the world, which might be eye-opening to some. Druckerman takes a look at why people have affairs, how they deal with them, what are the consequences in various countries such as Indonesia, South Africa, China, Russia, Japan and France. I thought it was was overall enjoyable read without slogging along or becoming too academic. It goes into very interesting details such as sex as being one of the few outlets in Russia as a leftover from the Soviet Union t [...]

    8. Great! Fun! Interesting! Easy to read and yet full of information, facts and numbers that change the way we see the world, not only referring to sex and infidelity, but also in terms of stereotypes and prejudices. Only one thing: after reading what it says in the cover one could expect a wider point of view, but again we find an american-centered mentality. Every fact, every info she offers is compared to behavior in the US. Yes, I know she's american, but if you write a book about (as she says) [...]

    9. Không có gì đặc sắc ngoài vài điểm nhỏ có thể thu lượm! Nếu bạn trông đợi được thưởng thức một công trình nghiên cứu xã hội học về ngọai tình mà tựa đề to tát "Giải mã dục vọng" mang lại thì bạn sẽ thất vọng.

    10. Less a review than a quick link to follow up. One of the countries covered by Pamela Druckerman in the book is China, and its huge mistress population. They even have entire luxury apartment blocks where most of the residents are mistresses of rich and powerful men. Anyway, Foreign Policy just did a piece on the mistress problem in China, linking it to its pervasive culture of corruption: "The Mistress-Industrial Complex". It was an interesting "follow-up read" to this book.

    11. This is an interesting book and a good read for the comparison between how cultures react to and view marital infidelity.

    12. I've read another book from this author, and I really enjoy her style. She does a great job of reporting on the content while making it very accessible and understandable. In this book, the very tricky issue of infidelity is covered, looking at how several different culture view the issue. We take a gander at Japan where marriages are more about security and love is found elsewhere, to Russia where the dearth of men leave many women powerless to insist on fidelity, and in poor African places whe [...]

    13. This was an interesting, if mostly inconclusive, journalistic expedition through the cultural attitudes towards infidelity in various countries that the foreign-correspondent author seemed to be in anyway. Not science, in other words, but contains some interesting testimonials.

    14. I read a small blurb about this book when it was first published in hardcover and for whatever reason, I actually marked down the date that it would come out in paperback so I could be sure to get it and read it. Whatever the driving force for acquiring the book, I've been reading it off and on (mostly off) since April To the point where the book has a rather noticeable pen shaped bulge dividing the book almost in half where my pen rested for most of the three months that it sat on my bookshelf [...]

    15. I enjoyed Pamela's anthropologic writing style in Brining up Bebe, so I thought I would check this out. Infidelity is a bit of a daunting topic to read about for a few weeks. The book is a great insight into our American minds versus the rest of the world.

    16. I found this book in one of Indigo, Chapters and Coles "sale books". If I want a giggle, then I would scan few pages that makes me laugh, and buy the book. I usually scan for amusing lines and I burst out laughing to this line page 59. " Women in Nepal, the Philippines and Mali appear to be almost magically monogamous. ZERO percent report having had two or more partners in the previous year. ".Who answers this survey material anyway? This reminds me of my final exams last Friday. One of the l [...]

    17. Fascinating. Americans seem to be the most hung up about infidelity, and only in modern times. Not sure it's something helping our collective psyches to be this way.

    18. I have a belligerent faith in books because they provide an extended, crafted argument in a world increasingly dominated by passing headlines, talking points, blurbs, pundits, scandal, and hype.In many major news stories affecting our lives, books have become the final say.So it was with distinct pleasure that I found myself reading Pamela Druckerman’s Lust in Translation: The Rules of Infidelity from Tokyo to Tennessee when John Edwards admitted to having an affair. If only I had picked it up [...]

    19. Highly recommend. Druckerman is a terrific writer and columnist. She asks insightful questions surrounding love, marriage, commitment, fidelity, and what we think we know about other cultures. This book is part memoir and part exploratory as she was in-between jobs when she decided to research and write about the question of cultural fidelity. A question that continued to come up during her single years as a foreign correspondent. I only wish that she was able to gather a bit more research and i [...]

    20. I wanted this book to be much more than it was; I had to keep reminding myself that while it was well researched, it was not even attempting to be critical or theoretical, and so the fact that Druckerman started from a host of assumptions and accepted so many things as given was par for the course.Still, it would have been nice if, in 300+ pages (maybe in a final chapter), she had at least considered the fact that there is something other than monogamy and infidelity, or questioned marriage as a [...]

    21. "Americans are uniquely mixed up about being faithful."This is an easy read full of stories and statistics. This is not a scientific cross-cultural comparison; the stats are used for non-replicable non-predictive illustration or speculation.I don't usually read descriptions of American culture and feel as though they match me, but that happened twice in this book. She says dozens of things about American culture, so seeing myself in it twice is almost inevitable (like seeing oneself in a horosco [...]

    22. Okay book, not ground breaking for me, but I learned a few things. First off, cheating is as old as time and happens the world over. I won't bore you with statistics, especially since they don't seem very reliable anyway, but it's safe to assume that very few marriages are affair prove, given the right circumstances. What does differ globally, is the attitude toward infidelity. In Russia, marriage therapists think that an extramarital dalliance will help your marriage, in France, as long as ever [...]

    23. From Publishers WeeklyFormer foreign correspondent for the Wall Street Journal now living in Paris, Druckerman offers an anecdotal rather than a scholarly exploration of the international etiquette of adultery. From American prudishness about the subject to French discretion, and from Russian vehemence about the obligatory affair to Japanese adherence to the single marital futon, one factor rings true in all cases: people lie about sex. Druckerman interviews numerous adulterers, starting with th [...]

    24. I'd spotted this book in a bookstore. The blurb looked interesting enough but I wasn't sure I was prepared to fork out close to 30 dollars for a book that looked vaguely intriguing and would probably not merit a second reading. (Bless the National Library for taking up my suggestion to purchase the book for its collection.) An investment of three days showed me that my original assessment was spot on. Lust in Translation has the lofty ambition of exploring infidelity around the globe - in Americ [...]

    25. Search the web for the figures on male and female infidelity and you'll get numbers like '50% of males and 25% of females with the women fast catching up on the back of rising economic independence'. I had often wondered how much credence could be given to such claims. Now I know just how little.I read non-fiction in the hope of learning something and I was not disappointed by Lust in Translation. The downside of non-fiction is that 'academic rigour' can force many a good researcher into produci [...]

    26. This is not an academic tome on infidelity. But it's not a silly romp either. Because the world of sex research is fraught with embarrassed participants (or way too eager ones), and sex itself tends to become politicized, hard data on infidelity is hard to come by. But this book, written by the same author who penned "Bringing Up Bebe", provides a glimpse into the world of monogamy and infidelity in several different cultures. After an introductory chapter reviewing the data that is available, s [...]

    27. One thing I couldn’t figure out about this book was the cover - ok, you have two people under the sheets of a map - however, both feet are those of a MALE. I pray to GOD that no woman has such man-nish feet. This book was okay, but not the most thrilling. It is a scientific book about cheating and the author attempts to add anecdotal evidence to her findings. Believe it or not, America has a low cheating rate compared to many other countries, but Americans tend to go more insane if their spous [...]

    28. SEX! Its everywhere. There's no person in this world that hasn't heard or even acknowledge sexuality. Even those that are severely mentally ill have these urges. So What? What leads to infidelity? I've been sure of it, its insecurity in yourself and in your partner. If you are unable to trust your own actions you may project them into your partners, which give the sense that if you would do it so would they.Where do you start? How about this book, if you're an American, you'd be please to find o [...]

    29. Pamela Druckerman does a good job here of pulling together available research (which is notoriously inaccurate and hardly definitive) from across different cultures with a narrative that examines the human behaviour and feelings that accompany adultery.It does not romanticise or condone the activities discussed and provides a concise and readable account of the different infidelities found across the globe. The responses to adultery, especially the puritanical ones common in America make for dep [...]

    30. This book truly gave me insight into the perspective of other cultures on something as old as culture itself. It goes by many names: cheating, infidelity, adultery, gettin' some on the side. In any case, it's something that goes on everywhere, yet how people treat it differs from place to place. It gave me some surprises, and some worries, on how infidelity is commenced, and the author herself gave us good enough distance on the subject, while at the same time providing her own thoughts in a gen [...]
