Communication specialist Patricia Evans explores the issue of verbal abuse in heterosexual relationships. She builds on her previous work in The Verbally Abusive Relationship and Controlling People by posing the question, ¿Can a verbally abusive man really change?¿ What is particularly startling about verbal abuse, Evans explains, is that in almost every case the abuser feels that he is the one being attacked. (Rarely, abusers are female, but such cases aren¿t discussed in this book.) Getting him to own up to his damaging behavior is not easy. Motivating him to change is even more difficult. Evans supplies tools you can use to determine if your partner is likely to change and a program that can help him do so, if you think he can alter his abusive behavior. Evans uses her book as a pulpit to preach against unqualified therapists, verbal abuse in all its forms and the male-dominated society that has made such abuse possible. But, her cause is just, and we recommend this important resource to anyone who is struggling to survive an abusive relationship and to therapists who are seeking solid information.

Within pages of opening this book I was agreeing with Ms Evans theories, statements and examples. By the time I got to page 28 I was feeling spooked as it seemed Ms Evans knew the inner workings of my partners head and had been a fly on the wall in our house while writing this book. I found the information contained within correct and relevant and easy to read. One can't help but come to the conclusion the author knows her stuff. I'm really glad I bought this book, I'm sure I'll be referencing back to it on many occasions.

It seems like this author is the author that everyone quotes and looks to about verbal abuse. It is a very interesting book, and the ideas speak to me. The thing I wonder about is the qualifications of the author.
