4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Shane Maritain on August 19, 2006
Format: Paperback
One of the leading myths, still widely held, is that boys are immune to the effects of sexual abuse, that as males they can be expected to handle that situation, forget about it, and get on. As John Oarc's book reveals, this is almost never the case. Sexual abuse of boys has devastating and lasting effects. His personal experience and his struggle to heal and overcome the effects are extraordinarily well documented. His is a hero's journey and one that makes the reader glad to know him. A terrific read.

The author relates his own devastating journey after being victimized as a child. He tells of it's unfortunate affects on his life as a boy and teen. He tells of the emotional pain he endured as an adult trying to cope with the psychological trauma inflicted on him all those years before. He relates how he was eventually able to start of the path of recovery and how he found a source of strength in his Higher Power.

This book is a candid look at the devastating affects of this terrible crime committed against young boys. A must read if you or someone you love is a male victim of childhood sexual abuse.

John walks readers through his painful healing process that took decades to start. He honestly and openly describes his life and the events that took place following a tragic and shocking emotional trauma. It's troubling at times and is even salted with bits of humorous wisdom at others. But it's eye opening all the way through. On many levels, I was able to relate to the thoughts and emotions he expresses and have even found to be conducive to the tearing down of my own person walls and the healing of my own struggles. Bravo John.

Format: Paperback
Though there are many books written about child sexual abuse, this book is unique in that it is one of the few books written by a male survivor of child sexual abuse. It is powerful in its simplicity, yet illuminating in the courageous struggle required by survivors if they are to reclaim their voice and move towards healing.
