However, I have to rate it at only four stars, as the book only mainly discusses father/daughter incest, and doesn't really give time to discussing the various other forms of incest and predation that exist. Male victims, or female victims who were manipulated not by their father but by an older sibling, may need additional resources. A brief discussion on same-sex abuse is covered, but not really in depth, so survivors of those types of encounters may also need additional resources.
All in all, a good resource to being to understand and start the healing process, but the book itself advices, and I must add, counseling is crucial.
