This is an excellent book for those in the professional fields that concern satanic ritual abuse. It's concise, informative, and factual. It's geared toward those involved in treating trauma victims; however, it would also be useful for those in law enforcement and security as it gives subtle, but recognizable, signs of those who have been subjected to hideous trauma, such as satanic ritual abuse (sra). If you have a friend or are a partner who is an SRA survivor, this book is a must. It will increase your knowledge, and understanding, of the reactions and effects on those subjected to SRA or other forms of ritual abuse and trauma.
Based on my brush with a satanic cult and the effects such cults have on individuals (MPD), this is a factual book. I'm surprised it only has one "this is hype" review from satanic apologists. One would think a good book like this would have a string of "this is urban myth" reviews by those who wish, with probably cause, to continue to hide the most hideous, unaddressed crime in this country, if not the world. I repeat: an excellent book. If you don't buy it; read it at the library.

This book is the first recovery book for SRA survivors that I have read. The effects of my own abuse and experience with SRA and DID(formerly multiple personality disorder) were capsulized in this single book. No book can "do justice" to the severity and prevalence of SRA, yet I am greatly impressed with the depth of knowledge and wisdom Daniel Ryder portrayed in this book. Incorporating the 12 Steps into SRA recovery was a lifesaver to me, and I wish I could thank Daniel personally.

Format: Paperback
People who belong to the False Memory Syndrome Foundation have been encouraged by that group to write anonymous negative reviews for all books that 'encourage' false memories, and flood the major booksellers with these reviews. While the book they fear most is The Courage to Heal, this is another valuable book for those recovering from, or helping others to recover from, organized ritual abuse. Survivors have suffered the horror of the original abuse, the humiliation of being disbelieved, and the fear of speaking out due to threats of retaliation. Despite all this, healing is possible, and this book can help.

This book will be helpful to therapists and support friends of ritual abuse survivors. While Breaking The Cycle takes a 12 step approach to recovery (similiar To Alcoholics Anonymous), Daniel Ryder presents a more secular approach on healing. While traditional therapy and peer counseling may be extremely helpful, a more spiritual approach will often produce remarkable results.

Therapists and support people may benefit greatly from Daniel Ryder's research and sensitivity toward survivors. There's a great deal of documentation and heroic stories of recovery by several survivors. Some of the material is out of date and survivors now have greater resources via the internet.

Overall, I'd recommend Breaking The Cycle as a supplement to traditional therapy. I'd caution survivors while reading due to the highly triggering material. For further reading I'd suggest: A Safe Passage to Healing by Chrystine Oksana.

Format: Paperback
This is an interesting and helpful book, particularly for practioners who deal with patients who are somewhere along the line of dissociative disorders. I am a therapist and a survivor of ritual abuse and found many similarities in various ritual abuse themes in the book. I found it useful both to myself personally in dealing with my past and in dealing with patients who are starting to deal with similar issues or experiences.
I do not doubt ritual abuse can happen, now that I have come to believe and assimilate my own experiences. I can see why others doubt the evil of which some factors of mankind are capable. Survivors don't make this up...it is far too weird and far too painful to think about, never mind invent these atrocities for "fun".
I am glad that it is rare enough for people to question if such evil exists...I am sad that it is so common that people experience it, suffer from it and then need to defend their reality to others...sometimes even to themselves.
This book warns you about sections that may be "triggering" so one can intelligently exercise caution when reading it.
I would recommend this book to anyone who may treat trauma survivors (or to others who are getting back these unbelievable grotesque type memories), as their are many folks out there who may along their path through therapy and healing discover the unthinkable in their history or herstory.
