5.0 out of 5 stars This can change your life January 14, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
The thing with child abuse is that left to its own devices, its effects never really go away—the “bad stuff” is always there in the subconscious, like some patient monster waiting for its time. And unless the victim—with the support of loved ones—faces it head-on, it will continue to gnaw them from the inside. Thankfully, books like Nicholas Wilkinson’s ‘Child Abuse: the Ripple Effect’ not only sheds light on this often misunderstood issue, but it also deftly succeeds in helping survivors regain their humanity and understand that there is something they can actually do.

Wilkinson writes with that refreshing frankness, yet he does so with a deep sense of empathy—he has been there and he knows first-hand how it all feels, and fortunately for readers, Wilkinson is someone who can articulately write well—or else it would not have been possible for this book to come to existence. He carefully discusses the various manifestations of abuse, and how it affects the way we process otherwise normal emotions, deal with others, and establish relationships. If anything, this book is a great start toward recovery—that single, important first step toward gaining freedom from what haunts us.

But most importantly, Wilkinson pulls no punches in discussing solutions—how a victim of child abuse can actually move on and eventually lead a productive happy life. ‘Child Abuse: The Ripple Effect’ will open your eyes and, hopefully, enable you not only to move on, but also help in recognizing the condition in others and therefore be able to help them. Get a copy of this book today—if not for you, for a friend or loved one who may need it. Who knows if your simple gift might save—or change—a life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eye Opening, moving & honest !! June 14, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
"This book, The Ripple Effect, it can be really hard to read. To hear someone tell their own story of abuse and mistreatment,
at the hands of a parent no less, it hits hard. The Ripple Effect is also just honest. The author explains his own experiences
with abuse and the struggle moving forward. The book is only .99 and for less than a dollar it can really open
your eyes to the reality of abuse. If you looking for something honest, insightful, and worth understanding. This is a book for you."
