For me, this book was a journey into an alien world without resorting to science fiction. I've had no experience with abusive relationships personally and have not had much interaction with anyone in this kind of relationship.

Beyond opening up the strange world of abusive relationships, this book has additional fascinating features.

This book is a very very important book. It's one of the first that speaks solely on the issue of domestic violence against men. In some places, it's a hard book to read. The stories of some of the interviewed men were quite heartbreaking.

The main focus of the book is to highlight that violence against men is an issue. Many people still don't understand that men can be victimised too, and this is the first thing that needs to change for men in abusive relationships to get any form of justice.

Very informative, and eye opening.
Great resource and informative. Provides a balancing perspective on domestic violence with the hope of empowerment and healing for both women and men.

“I have yet to meet a domestic relations attorney or judge (and I have discussed this with about thirty attorneys and six judges) who does not agree with this statement: Domestic relations cases should be taken out of the adversarial court system. Lawyers are not trained to deal with the psychological and social problems of families. We should not be asking them to do a job they are not trained to do.” 0 likes
