Enlightening! A must read for all! I will be gifting it to friends and clients as well.
No story line, Simply an awesome book. Does not only apply to man woman relationships, but can apply to any toxic relationship! My life is full of corrosive people, this would go well with The Nice Girl Syndrome. I am a kind hearted, giving prison and very easily taken advantage of! it's given me the strength to move on at 51 after 11 Long years with a wonderfully kind, sensitive man, of course to everyone but ME! My abandonment issues are partly to blame, keeping me in these repeated abusive relationships for my entire life! W@W!
This book opened my eyes to not only my own struggle but to how much still needs to been done in society before women can truly be seen as deserving equal respect. A must read for any young woman before she commits to a relationship.
I will listen to this book every day if I have to. Excellent voice and flow. Thank you Lundy Bancroft for your insight and sensitivity when you shared with all of us.
If you feel like you're in an unhealthy relationship & have nothing left to give. Listen/ read this. Abuse comes in many forms & the dangerous effects are numerous. Actually I think everyone needs to read/listen to this. The social acceptance of domestic abuse is sickening. I had no idea this problem was so fast & rapid. 1 in 3 women will experience some kind of domestic abuse in her lifetime. Craziness. We all need to be aware of everything Lundy has to say on this subject. Without him, without this book I would have stayed in an unsafe & unhealthy relationship. Knowledge is power. This book is a Godsend. Thank you Lundy.
