Editorial Reviews

Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.

"As therapists, survivors, allies, or simply caring humans, it is essential to contradict deconstructive ideas; we must searh for message that reflect the reality of human strength, caring, resilience, courage, creativity and love. I'm not suggesting denial; we cannot ignore grim realities of life. But there is far more human existence than unhappiness. The world is richly beautiful, infinitely diverse--and so are we."

Format: Paperback
As a survivor and psychotherapist who works with male survivors, I am both thrilled and grateful to Mike for providing us with such a wonderful resource. Leaping Upon the Mountains fills an important gap in that it is the first work I have seen that provides hope to survivors that a higher quality of life is possible. It also offers a general pathway for how to attain it. Mike rightly points out that it is not enough to describe the painful difficulties experienced by survivors; it is also essential to focus on how we deal with the pain. I am proud to be a contributor to Leaping Upon the Mountains and routinely refer my patients to this work. I highly recommend it to all male survivors and supporters.

Format: Paperback
Once again, Michael Lew has provided male sexual abuse victims a very valuable and supportive book. Unlike his first book, Victims No Longer, which became a classic in describing the trauma and healing from male childhood sexual abuse in adulthood, this book provides results of questions posed by the author to abuse survivors. The author simply asks survivors how they managed their difficult road(s) to recovery - what worked and why. Divided into 3 sections dealing with early, middle and late recovery, the survivors provide a creative and empowering list of strategies. The author, in his thoughtful, caring style, comments on and supports these strategies. The end of the book is terrific!: survivors offer words of wisdom and encouragement for those embarking on this difficult and painful journey. If you need a biblio-support group at your finger-tips, these men will not let you down! I personally believe the author's work has saved many lives and this book will save many more. Read it and recover!

Leaping Upon the Mountians, gave me many ways to look at how men who were abused as children see things. Being in a relationship with a survivor, is hard. Trying to see see things from their perspective is not always easy. This book helps me see how to look at it.

Format: Paperback
This book is a "must" for male victims of childhood sexual abuse, and for those who are partners of males who were abused as children. Most the text is a compilation of information, stories, recovery techniques, insights, etc. garnered from adult males who were sexually abused as children. If you have read Mr. Lew's first Book, VICTIMS NO LONGER, you should read this one too. Recovery from the trauma of childhood sexual abuse can, and does happen, and LEAPING UPON THE MOUNTAINS is full of encouraging messages to assist in the recovery process.
