I purchased this book for my (at the time) future girlfriend coming out of a string of abusive relationships, the last of which I was lucky enough to have intervened. Along with "It's My Life Now: Starting Over After Abusive Relationship or Domestic Violence" the future object of my affections was able to learn a great deal about what truly happened and how to move forward in life. I recommend both titles as they ultimately helped her healing and allowed us to pursue a functioning and healthy relationship with one another.

I sent a copy of the chapter on types of abusers to a neighbor who had just separated from her husband. It looked to me as if both wife abuse and child abuse were likely. One of the types absolutely nailed her husband and when she told me, it was clear that she knew exactly how to handle him. This book puts power into the hands of the most powerless women. It should be owned by every married woman, just in case.

I was drawn, as most women probably are, to the descriptions of the different types of abusers. My spouse was described in eye-opening detail, right down to quotations of the things he commonly said to me. The author provided great insight into the root of abusive behavior, how abusive men really view their partners. As an abused partner, this book gave me such clarity, and equipped me with the information I needed to make a truly informed decision about whether or not to stay with my abuser.

DAMN! This book is eye opening! It is so methodically laid out in the Q & A format, I wish I was armed this knowledge sooner, when it really could have helped several people in my circle. It's a great ... Read full review

This would have been even better when I was in high school. Every parent of a daughter, or anyone who has contact with someone they fear might be in an abusive relationship, should read this. I ... Read full review
