    Wowee

    This book was very informative. For as young as I am I didn't realize how much abuse I had actually gone through. Reading this book has helped me be able to notice some of the signs of a bad relationship. Hopefully by reading about bad men I can now make a better choice about who i let into my life. This book is a good read for anyone who is surious about the warning signs of an abusive relation. I would recomend this book to anyone who has ever had the thought that they might be with the wrong person.

    Jerk Test

    The book "Ditch That Jerk" is utimately a guide for women dealing with men who hurt or abuse women. Overall, i enjoyed Pamela's writing, but i feel like she repeated herself alot. Most of the book exlpains the difference between the potentially good, the definately bad, and the utterly hopeless men. The author also works in a program for men who have or do abuse women. Some of these men change, and some don't. What i liked most in this book is when she told of the stories of some of the men in her group. Reading this book made me realize the signs i should be aware of in men. To conclude, this is a very useful book to women.

    Ditch That Jerk

    Ditch That Jerk was a very interesting book. I thought that Pamela used some really good analogies and I can tell she's a really great teacher in her classes for abusive men. She has a way of putting situations into words that everybody understands. I say, good job Pamela Jayne!

    She layed it all out

    Ditch That Jerk is written by Pamela Jayne. She has study this topic thoroughly, through abusive groups for people. Jayne writes about what type of abusive guys there are. She wants women not to feel alone and no know what they are up against them. I felt like she repeated her self over and over again. But once you got past that I actually learned something new. I learned that men can change but it¿s not very likely that they are willing to. The only parts of the book that I got really interested in was when she told the stories. I learned and understood better when I was shown an example. I disliked the parts where she talked about the good, the bad, and the ugly. She also added jerk test at the end of each chapter. I got many weird looks from people when they read the title. I enjoyed the book and even though it has nothing to do with me. It was nice learning something new about what is happening around me. Or if something like that were to happen I would know what to do and how to act.

    Bluntly Honest

    This book put down everything that I ever thought about abusive relationships all down into writing. It gives detailed and specific scenarios that women all go through when they enter an abusive relationship. It is a straightforward book without any form of preaching and criticism directed towards people entertwined with abuse. Overall, it was a was a wonderful and interesting read that defines abuse and reality in such a way that a reader can relate or understand it.

    Amazing!!

    One of the most insightful and eye opening books I've ever read. It made me laugh, and reinforced the strength I knew I had all along. Great for a personal situation or to increase awareness of what others are going through.

    Finally some answers!

    This book tells it like it is, covering all aspects of men who control or try to control the women in their lives. If you want to understand how these men operate you should definitely read this book!
