I have chosen the rating of five stars because when the. Author Harvey Wallace took time to write the book, he wrote it easy enought for the readers to understand it and recognize if such problem is going on in their lives and what actions to take to get out of the situation and who to contact.

I purchase this book for a sociology class in kindle version. The book was excellent! I love that the kindle format allows you to get immediate definitions, and the drag to highlight feature for important information is so much better than using a dryed out highlighter.
