    Story
    "So many words, so little substance"
    What didn’t you like about Laural Merlington’s performance?

    Sounds like a female version of Hans Moleman


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    A lot of nothing. No useful tools, techniques, just a litany of gynocentric (yes it's a word) examples. The countless quotes from letters she has received from readers add nothing to the text except to extend the hours wasted.

    Story
    "The content: more ideological rather than factual"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Although the facts, I trust the author, are true - she presents only one part of the story. She says as if the blame was 100% on the abuser and 0% on the abused person.It is simply not right and me being in recovery myself I see that the problem of such dysfunction is on both sides. Besides, the author recalls in most cases women as the victims, vaguely mentioning how men are verbally mistreated by women (sarcasm, cynical comments, also physical abuse) treated by women. It's more and more shown by recent studies.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The narrator has a good voice, but is interpreting in such a way as the abuser was a monster and the abused person a soft and totally innocent person.


    Do you think Verbal Abuse: Survivors Speak Out needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    If the analysis is going to follow only the above way of thinking, I think it is mis-informing the topic. Besides, me myself being a verbal abuser, I behave in such a way more of my unconscious fear rather than pure desire to control the other person.


    Any additional comments?

    The author be more objective.
