Mušt read if you are or think you may be In an abusive relationship or if you know someone who deals with a verbally or physically abusive man. Eye opening. Pretty thorough book
Yes, if she was in an abusive relationship or helping someone in one. Or if one is confused about why women stay with abusive men. This book showed me the truth for the first time!
The author or counsellor who says why he needs to talk to the wife's and girlfriends of the abuser. Not many counsellors do that so they don't get the truth from the man. The author explains why this is so crucial.
One of the best narrators. He read it like he was the author, understood what he was reading and sounded as though he believed what he was saying which is critical for abused women. he's fantastic!
A ton of it! I know what questions to ask women in similar circumstances and how to keep myself safe!
Read the book and let your daughters read it
I listened to this book several times. If you are in a relationship and feel like you can do nothing right and you're struggling to hang onto your sanity, get this book!
Very clear and concise and opened my eyes to what I was labelling 'minor' offenses which I just brushed off. This book has helped me take a huge step towards getting away from my abuser.
Bancroft is spot on at relating to the victim with the emotional and verbal abuse. He knows the abuser all to well. I cried and cried tears of relief and sadness - for he described exactly how I'd felt & many moments of my life. Should be required reading for everyone.
Yes, but mostly because I work directly with victims and survivors of domestic violence. It is a fantastic resource for anyone working in any aspect of domestic violence awareness or experiencing it themselves.
No, it is a lot of information and takes time to absorb. Take your time and try to get the ebook companion as you will want to highlight many sections.
I'm not unintelligent by no means but I came unraveled quickly from abuse. I couldn't understand why all the hell I sense put away was it and fighting back. This booked often my eyes. Sad thing it started from the very beginning of my relationship with my husband. This information had helped me fig down and find the will too survive. I have no pity for him now. What I have is the truth and the Grace of God. No accident I came across this book. Thank you.
made me realize I'm not crazy. mine was emotional abuse, so, as the book will show you, without being able to put your finger on your abuse (bruises, broken bones) it's common to feel like maybe you're crazy. I'm not. I'm not. I'm a survivor of abuse.
