Overview

Burrow inside an emotional abuser's head and find out why I...
* am so charming one minute and a raging manic the next
* blame you for everything
* must stay in control all the time
* belittle your feelings, opinions, or your accomplishments
* try to punish you
* never seem to support you
* cut you down in front of friends and family
* can't stop my behavior even if I wanted to

* am angry so much of the time
* don't provide your emotional needs
* can't admit when I am wrong
* expect so much of you
* can't accept the word No

Go on a revealing, first hand journey with a man, husband, and father who spent 33-years locked in the prison of emotional abuse, as it destroyed his 24-year marriage and crippled the woman and children he loves. Experience the awakening that hurled him through a nightmarish journey to the most inner core of his soul.

Discover what he learned during five years of recovery as he put his emotionally destructive lifestyle behind him, and later, discovered that the horrors of his 33-year abusive life stemmed from events that happened as a teenager, following the unexpected death of his father.

If you have a dysfunctional relationship or marriage, discover:
* The motivations behind the abusive behavior
* Whether there is hope for the relationship or if it is time to get out
* Practical tips to heal should your spouse commit to get help

Anyone trapped in a manipulative, controlling relationship full of anger, yelling, and arguments, yet who yearns to have a relationship and marriage full of love, emotional intimacy, and trust will gain insight and practical knowledge and guidance from this book.

Answer the questions:
* What role childhood plays in an abuser's life
* How does a too-close relationship with mom affect a husband
* What is the 'payoff' to abuse in marriage
* Codependency and the role of the rescuer
* What type of counseling won't work and which is best
* How to know if it's time to leave the relationship
* How to tell if your mate is really changing
* What is the Dr. Jekyll / Mr. Hyde personality
* What role anger plays in the abuse inflicted on others
* What is Arrested Development and what role does it play
* Root causes of abuse

If you recognize even some of these traits within yourself, or someone you love, you owe it to you and to all those around you, your spouse, children, family, friends, and coworkers to read this book.

This is a great read for sure. I read this book in 2 nights because I had a hard time putting it down. Thank you for writing this book.

This book was very validating to me! He has one chapter dedicated to how to tell if your spouse is really changing. These are things I was looking for but wondered if I was being unreasonable in my expectations. It was nice to have them validated by a recovering abuser. He even added some I haven't thought about. It is self-published and has many spelling and grammatical errors. But he asks you up front to excuse that because he feels his story is so important to get out there. He wants to save marriages. His message to abusers - you CAN change. His message to the abused - do NOT tolerate this treatment. This book is well worth reading!

I just wrote a great recommendation for this book and somehow "lost it" in this submission page.  OK  Patience...time out..do not get instantly angry and frustrated! I admit I bought this book because it was written b y a man.  I had to see this.  I was not disappointed.  This reads well and moves fast and is organized effectively. I think he has done the world a great service.  It is actually possible for a man with this kind of awful history to write an honest memoir that is authentic and courageous.  I am definitely going to write him a personal letter
