Praise for Why Does He Do That?
“Bancroft has opened a window into the thinking of abusive men, and his book helps open a door out of abusive relationships.”—Gavin de Becker, New York Times bestselling author of The Gift of Fear and Fear Less
“This is without a doubt the most informative and useful book yet written on the subject of abusive men.”—Jay G. Silverman, PhD, director, Violence Prevention Programs, Harvard School of Public Health
“Jargon-free analysis is frequently broken up by interesting first-person accounts and boxes that distill in-depth information into simple checklists. Bancroft’s book promises to be a beacon of calm for many storm-tossed families.”—Publishers Weekly
“Bancroft boldly asks—and brilliantly answers—the most important questions of all: Why do so many men abuse women? What can be done about it? This book is desperately needed and long overdue.”—Jackson Katz, creator of the award-winning video Tough Guise: Violence, Media and the Crisis in Masculinity
“This is essential reading for those in the helping professions and highly recommended.”—Library Journal
“At last—the straight scoop on men who abuse women. This is a book not just for abused women and domestic violence professionals, but for everyone who wonders why there’s so much violence in America. Read it.”—Ann Jones, author of When Love Goes Wrong and Next Time, She’ll Be Dead
“Bancroft helps women who feel trapped in unhealthy relationships make sense out of what is happening.”—Sarah Buel, JD, codirector, Domestic Violence Clinic, and lecturer, University of Texas Law School
“A compelling read about a tough topic. What you read here will come back to you long after you put the book down.”—Angela Browne, author of When Battered Women Kill
“An informative and necessary read.”—Susan Weitzman, PhD, author of Not to People Like Us: Hidden Abuse in Upscale Marriages

When someone devotes all of their mental energy trying to tear you down, steal your joy, and make you question everything because you have been lied to so many times, you need to realize what they are doing and have a constant reminder that the problem is with them, not you, and you are not alone. This book does that.
I also recommend the book this is a companion for, "Why Does He Do That?" which details different types of abusers and the tactics they use. Knowing who you are dealing with helps you from being blindsided because you know what to expect. There are also resources to get help.
If knowledge is power, you will be empowered to do what you need to do after reading this book.
Bancroft is not an armchair self help guru - he has worked with thousands of abused women and abusers.
He's heard it all, and is fooled by nothing!
He plainly respects women, and the difficulties women face in abusive relationships.
He may well not help you solve the issues, you can't if your partner believes he's entitled to treat you as an inferior, but you WILL feel empowered to create a better life for yourself - and to get away, if that's what you need to do.
I've read a lot, having been in an abusive relationship with a war veteran for 16 years, and this book is by far the best.
I am now husband free, without guilt or remorse, and freely getting on with my life, and getting my self esteem and energy back.
