This is by far the best book about abusive relationships that I've ever read. It is full of great advice and good ideas for finding peace and finding yourself again after abuse. It's more than just a book to read; it's practically an interactive book, with lots of exercises that really get to the heart of any situation. I've read it twice, recommended it frequently, and am just about to purchase yet another copy for a friend of mine.

I read this book in 4 days. It is better to take it in small steps. For me it enabled me to take a look at things and set boundaries for change. My relationship was annoying but not trxtbook abusive. So its kind of a guide and if you take steps to make things heslthy and it doesnt work..at least you know you did take those steps before you leave.

Lundy is a leading expert in teaching about abuse. If you are a woman who even suspects slightly that she is in a controlling, uneven, abusive relationship - this book is a wealth of help. Well spoken and studied, the teachings are excellent, but relevant to an abused female only. I tried reading it through, but found it was not applicable to female abusers with a male victim. There are just so many hardwired and cultural differences between men and women, that the causes, expression, methods, treatment, and solutions are too different for a book with this topic. IF they ever get around to properly addressing male victims of abuse, I look forward to reading what books come as a result.
