    "A gift to the emotionally violated"

    Patricia Evans is a brilliant, compassionate author. There is no author I've found who gets down into the deepest trenches of relational dynamics to explain the underlying issues of so many relationships. You could see countless therapists and not even come close to having your confusion, pain, and emotional anguish validated as you would in this book and the others by Evans. The next steps and tools provided in this book are a great addition to the other books that focus more on discovery and gaining knowledge and validation. Evans takes her profound gift in understanding controlling and verbally abusive behaviors one step further and provides guidance to help you figure out if your partner can change. I'm afraid you may never pick up this book because you aren't aware of what verbal abuse really is and how subtle it can be. It may sound like something you've never had to deal with, and you might be thanking God you haven't when you actually have! I challenge you to open your mind and discover how prevalent verbal abuse really is. Perhaps even those of us who rarely indulge in abusive behaviors would rather never indulge but didn't know we were doing so. We have grown so much as a society, but we have a long way to go. Oppression comes in many forms and Evans is leading the path to recovery for all of us.

    "self help"
    Would you listen to The Verbally Abusive Man, Can He Change? again? Why?

    YES, BECAUSE YOU CAN ALWAYS LEARN NOW FROM SELF HELP BOOKS WHEN YOU READ THEM AGAIN BECAUSE YOU LIFE AND CIRCUMSTANCES CHANGE.


    What about Laural Merlington’s performance did you like?

    She is a very good reader enjoyed it.


    What did you learn from The Verbally Abusive Man, Can He Change? that you would use in your daily life?

    So many things, I truly think it helped me understand I have to be the one to stomp my foot if I thought is was out of the will of God, you do NOT have to be submissive.

    "Worst narrater ever!"
    What didn’t you like about Laural Merlington’s performance?

    She sounded like a tape recorder does when it is put on the slow motion function; it was almost painful at times to listen to her.
