"This is essential reading for those in the helping professions and highly recommended for all libraries, especially those in communities with emergency shelter programs." (Library Journal)
This had a few answers for me,tho finding out my partner had narcissistic disorder,I needed something specific...this book was too broad
The author helps you see the reality of what you've been going through with caring and compassion, pulling no punches about the motivations behind the actions of the abuser.
Do not know. I feel while the information was very good, it was very biased against men. While men are the majority abusers, men also suffer from Abuse. I believe he had one line stating that. I feel the abuse issue is rampant and involves women as well as men. Recommended solutions may also help the males being abused but that was down played.
Do not know
Disappointed, expected a book focusing on women, not one as biased against men as this one.
A real game changer. This book helped me understand the relationship I was in, and helped me gey out. I bought 2 more copies for friends on abusive relationships. This book should be read by every teemage girl.
I am in a relationship on the lower scale of abuse. I was afraid this would be too much...but it wasn't!!! I did skip a few chapters that didn't apply, and I was able to find a huge amount of tips and help. Especially in the last few chapters!!!
One of the most accurate books I have read in a long time. The author absolutely knows this topic very well!! It is a great resource for individuals who are dealing with an abusive partner. It helps with lifesaving insight and tactics in understanding and safely extracting ones self and children from such an intolerable environment.
Thanks to the Author for writing this book. I'm sure it has and will continue to make a significant different in the lives of individuals who have been affected by domestic violence.
A must read for everyone. I was an abused wife so I understood from abuse from the victims perspective, but I was clueless why he did it. Now I know and it wasn't what I expected. So important for everyone to understand why he does it and what to do about it.
Extremely insightful. Narration superb. A must read for anyone caught in the abuse cycle. Powerful resource for women being threatened by men, and for those who care about them.
Grateful to have found this book. If you have been involved with an abuser, and are looking for answers you will find them in this book. It's NOT your fault!
