If you want to have no hope, read this book!User Review - Christianbook.com
Author admits that his methods rarely work. Most of the men he works with are there under court order for anger management. For sake of time and space, I ditto the other 1 star ratings. One of the worst books I have ever read.
Polemic, possibly dangerous.User Review - Christianbook.com
I'm not sure I agree with one reviewer's assertion that the author doesn't give some of the 'why's' BUT I do agree that it's a book with very little hope offered for the victim or the abuser to repair the relationship. I have been accused of abuse by my ex-beloved and this book and a couple of others have been given to me as 'proof'. They have both left me with the clear impression that once one is accused of abuse there 's nothing one can do. Denial is proof. Looking for reasons in the relationship itself is proof. Searching for triggers is proof. It's a damned if you accept the accusation, damned if you don't scenario. It posits that the woman's feelings/suspicions are 100% accurate and that she doesn't need to evaluate her psychological background at all. Any attempt by the man to do so is also classed as abuse (denial of her felings and therefore her whole being). The saddest thing is that any hopes of a reconciliation are now impossible as those books have locked her in the mindset that I am beyond redemption. I've never been accused of abuse before even by my ex-wife whom I divorced after 25 years of married life. My 5 children don't see me that way. But of course abusers' other relationships are always fake-fine, so the book says, so that is impermissable evidence. It just so happens that my recent partner whom I call my true love was in an abusive marriage for 25 years invoving real violence e.g. punching in the stomach while pregnant, her self-defence with a razor blade inflicting a 19 stitch wound on her ex-husband and constant verbal abuse as he descended into alcoholism. She got so angry with me once she actually bit my face. However, if I dare to sympathetically suggest, as I used to, that she might be a little 'sensitive' because of her experiences, that, according to Lundy and co. is merely another proof and example of my abuser persona. I think 'witch-hunting' would not be too strong a word for the mindset espoused by this book. Any man suspected fin ...

For a professional field that values degrees and certifications. Lundy Bancroft has No degree, no certifications, no license, and no research cited in most of his books. Just saying! His writings are trash and do harm to many innocent men. He is a fraud! You do the reaerch and you will figure out the truth
