Editorial Reviews

Review

"An important book for every woman who has had an abusive relationship,or who is newly into a relationship in which there are warning signs surrounding control and power. Dr. Nelson has made it quite clear that the pattern can be discovered early in a relationship, and that a woman can get out before she gets hurt." -- Sherry Simmons, Executive Director, The Support Network for Battered Women

"I would highly recommend this book to anyone who may be in a violent relationship, or to a relative or close personal friend who has concerns about the safety of someone they love." -- Diane P. McGauley,Chair, Texas Council on Family Violence

Domestic violence threatens to reach epidemic proportions in the United States. Recognizing the danger signs before irreparable harm occurs is the technique stressed in this insightful guide to identifying, avoiding or escaping these dangerous situations. -- Library Booknotes --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover

"A powerful and important book! People in love tend to overlook, rationalize and justify unhealthy behaviors and patterns. This book will help shake them out of that fantasy by giving both men and women the awareness they need to spot a potentially disastrous relationship. 'Dangerous Relationships' could be a lifesaver." (Susan Forward, Ph.D) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Hardcover
This book can help you even if you've already been in an abusive relationship. It helped me recognize and understand the signs my ex-husband was showing me before we were married, though at the time I didn't have the tools I needed to see what I was getting into. It also gave me the confirmation and strength to not return to the relationship by reinforcing what I already suspected and by sharing the stories of others who had experienced abuse.

Format: Hardcover
This book will help you figure out what it was that drew you into the tangled web of an abusive relationship. It is designed more to help you avoid an abusive person than to help you get away from one. This book follows four different case studies and helps to analyze each different warning sign and helps you find out what to look for. I would recommend this book as required reading to any young person before they get married.

Format: Hardcover
Only reason why I bought this book was for my college class "Crisis Intervention for the Criminal justice professionals" The book is a bit overanalyical, needs more common sense and less of the author attidude. The book gives the feel of one side and not the other. Good information for research papers...that's about it.
