Please, go with your instincts. If it seems wrong or unusual, don't let it go. Investigate and get the answers you expect and deserve. Unfortunately, there are many phonies out there claiming to be someone they are not.
This book is a wonderful complement to a pursuit of safely extricating oneself from a toxic relationship with one of these dysfunctional individuals and details the extent to which one must go to obtain safety, while suffering the shock and disbelief in the reality of the situation.
I intend to add this important work to my repertoire of studies on how educated, intelligent people are caught in a socio-psychopaths snare and come up with a compendium of signals to look for early on in the process of forming new relationships. This is even more important now with the advent of the internet.
This book provides details on what it takes to engage in the legislative process and should offer hope to those who say "it can't be done." Yes, it can and this book is an account of how, as the Author says, with "passion, patience and persistence" anyone can push the envelope for the greater good.
