To the Survivors is a deeply-moving, empowering, and brutally honest book about one man’s journey as a rape crisis counselor combined with true stories of sexual violence shared by real survivors in their own words. Gently and beautifully constructed, To the Survivors is moving, tender, sharp, and piercingly true all at once. The reader will encounter uncensored written stories, poems, and interviews shared by women, men, and one transgendered person who have been raped and sexually assaulted. The impact of this work is far reaching – it is multi-cultural, multi-generational, and fully expansive in its ability to reach people's hearts and minds around this critical human issue. Robert Uttaro believes anyone can benefit from the words in these pages; rape survivor or not.

To the Survivors is an incredible collection of stories of true survival and perseverance. Robert Uttaro writes an emotional book that will keep you wanting to read more, and never put it down.
This book is awesome and eye-opening! I think Robert Uttaro’s book To the Survivors is very top notch and for anyone to read. However, you do have to be strong-willed to go through parts of the book. Some parts had me crying and some opened my eyes. I really feel Uttaro explains everything in a clear way and everything he says makes sense. The stories of the survivors are very touching and sad, but it’s good to know they are doing a lot better and that Uttaro helps victims.
