One of the other reviews called it "masturbation material", that would only be the case if you are indeed one of these perverts, otherwise you may have to take the occasional break to swallow your own bile, as with any good field criminology field manual.
A great book for police, social workers, or parents who need to gain a respectable fear of the kind of dangers that are out there waiting for their children.
What saves this from being frightening and sadistic voyereuism is that the author adds the vulnerable, human voice of the (recovered) victim to the story. In a brave and brilliant parallel narrative, she also describes the horrific experiences of a victim of child sexual abuse, and the ways these experiences can be played out for years following the initial events.
The book is an offering of hope and strength. With the insights from Dr. Hammel-Zabin, we gain awareness of protective and healing strategies for our children and the community at large. The book provides timely advice in today's world to anyone who worries about the victimization of children.
