Read an Excerpt

"As therapists, survivors, allies, or simply caring humans, it is essential to contradict deconstructive ideas; we must searh for message that reflect the reality of human strength, caring, resilience, courage, creativity and love. I'm not suggesting denial; we cannot ignore grim realities of life. But there is far more human existence than unhappiness. The world is richly beautiful, infinitely diverse--and so are we."

    The book tells "stories" or case histories of survivor

    The book tells "stories" or case histories of survivors but does not weigh in very well on the healing modalities available to men who have experienced this trauma.

    It kind of only goes "half-way". There are better books out there on this topic, this book just happens to have had the luck of being the only game in town for a long while.

    Empowering!

    Just when I thought Mike's book, Victims No Longer gave a loud voice to the silent victims of abuse, he outdid himself. His book, Leaping Upon the Moutains is an empowering, uplifting book filled with hope, inspiration, courage and determination to survive! It is a must read! This book is a lighter reading than the first one and you will have a difficult time putting it down!
