Publisher's Summary

When you encounter signs of domestic violence, what do you do?

Some of us may have been through it, and others have seen it in other people's homes. Domestic violence is a serious problem. The stats don't lie, but they aren't completely accurate either. They reveal the victims who speak up, but not the ones who stay silent. If you are wondering what is involved in domestic violence, what to do, and how to recognize it, then you've come to the right place. In this book, you'll hear about:

  • What it is, why it happens, and which signs indicate you may be confronted with domestic violence
  • Domestic violence against men and why it has been hidden by many victims and perpetrators
  • The best ways to help a friend or family member who gets abused by a domestic partner or parent
  • How to be better informed about the problem and recognize it more easily
  • Some thoughts on false claims and insidious accusers
  • Legal issues, lawyers, and organizational help
  • And even more

Curious yet? Then don't wait and start listening.

    "A good read on a touchy subject.."

    This book is a good read, and Mandy Whomack story needed to be told. It took courage to put his story out there for all to read. It really is a shame that in today's society the subject of domestic violence still focuses on the man being the abuser. I am glad Mandy Whomack finally found some happiness in his life.

    Story
    "Knowledge is power."
    Would you listen to Domestic Violence again? Why?

    I could listen to this book all day in one sitting as it is the book which was in my ''most awaiting book'' list.


    Any additional comments?

    What makes this book unique is the diverse types of domestic violence it covers. For instances, with the increasing number of senior citizens, the topic on elder abuse was particularly eye opening. This book was truly worth the time, to listen to.

    Story
    "Very clever analysis"

    This book brought to bear a unique insight into a complicated and subtle process to which we are all subject to in one way or another at different times. It is written in simple straightforward and uncomplicated language. I recommend it strongly It made me feel sorry for the people who were trying to make conversation with her...it seemed to me that she was exhibiting the same insensitivity and control that I've been experiencing for the past few years. I'm not sure of the relevance of these stories to the book...

    "Helped me understand"

    This was a very enlightening book. I recommend it for everyone, who is in any type of relationship. It helped me deal with every day issues. I bought it for my 21 year old daughter who keeps dating these controlling men. Then I read it after she did. And I was even more enlightened.

    Story
    "NOW I get it!"

    I would have given this book 5 stars, except that it almost seems to be a male-bashing book. I am sure that the majority of controllers are male and there aren't enough examples to be found where the controller is female. Also, most men would never read this book because it's not "manly" to read these kinds of books.

    "The bravest story"

    I had read the print version and it was very poignant but the book was brought to life in the audio format. The book reads to me like a conversation so to hear it was perfect!!
    A compelling story about surviving domestic violence. The story was well written by Mandy Whomack and very well narrated by Denise L. Fountain Something everyone should be aware of....domestic violence is NOT a one way street.

    "Encouraging message."

    This is a powerful story and well done. It is a good representation of a disease that is still too prevalent in the world today. Kudos to Mandy Whomack. A well written story about a dreadful disease and a woman that got the courage to overcome.I would love to see this story on the "Big Screen.

    Story
    "So good"

    It was good I just was mad that the story switched up from the original, that's one and two why were the female characters in the book giving it up the same day they met the male characters. Addictive and informative...there are errors a far as the editing goes, but this is an amazing series. Its really deep and passionate as if she is a women who has been through this before or she telling someones story. I would like to read more of her books
