This is a no nonsense, clinical overview of rape, of both the offenders and the victims. It was very difficult to read, as it is full of stories of actual rapes, gets inside the minds of some very sick men, and shows the trauma of the victims after the assault. Although this was distressing for me, I was glad they didn't pull any punches here, because averting our eyes from horrors only perpetuates those horrors.

This book does a good job at dispelling many of the common myths about both rapists

This book provided me a clear understanding as to why men rape, which is based on three primary reasons: power, anger, and sex desire (least accepted). I used this book for my research paper in English and it somewhat helped. I was able to explain why men behave that way, since the book provided many detailed examples and explanations.
