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.
It covers the stalking and harassment and scare tactics those who try to leave the group experience.
It also gives great resources. A good one is MINNARA.
It covers Satanism history and workings and reasoning, symbolism, MPD, monarch, and the spiritual aspect also for those who are Christian.
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 Some of the material is out of date and survivors now have greater resources via the internet.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.
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.
