This book should be required reading for all young men today. Many are the good and decent men in our society who have suffered emotional terrorism at the hands of sick and manipulative women. We must learn the characteristics and strategies of these women if we are to protect ourselves, our families, and our friends.

First and foremost, the authors are to be commended for having the guts to state the truth: that men suffer a great deal of domestic violence. The utterance of this overwhelming truth is a great risk for anyone to take, especially in a culture that refuses to believe that women are capable of and in fact do commit violence against men. The stories of male victims of violence being turned away from state agencies, unjustly incarcerated, and barred from their own homes while their children are left to the devices of violent women are tragic. I think that this book is an important step in breaking the wall of institutional silence and propaganda that allows men and children to remain in harm's way.

But more importantly, this book reveals the problem of emotional abuse against men. Emotional abuse and emotional terrorism are primary tactics of abusive and manipulative women. In using the tools of emotional manipulation, the abusive woman can be a subtle foe; she often preys on men who are good of heart, twisting their good intentions until she achieves her objectives. Up until very recently, men have been relatively defenseless against such tactics. The authors here provide a good look into the characteristics of the emotionally abusive and manipulative woman, and strategies to extricate one's self from her grasp.

I will be recommending this book to any male I know who is about to enter the world of dating and relationships. It's about time men got smart and started looking after themselves. Too many good men are suffering!

We are experiencing many of the things this book talks about. It is a frightening reality that many courts refuse to recognize. So many children's lives are forever altered and many childhoods are taken away--replaced by a mother demanding that she is the only one to be loved and cared for by her children--and that the children are needed for her welfare, money and survival. She doesn't see it any other way. At the same time that she is trying to destroy a man's life, she is demanding more play money from him. And the children are still asking dad to pay for more and more 'things' they want on top of all he gives already. Dad IS good enough only for money.

Women and children don't lie. Men lie, men deceive, men abuse, and men are malicious and dangerous. At least that's what political correctness and our current domestic violence laws and domestic violence programs want us to believe. As a woman, a former police officer, and a current behavior health nurse and therapist, I see far too many women who have malicious intentions toward any man they are involved with -- women who take advantage of not only men but the laws that assist them in the destruction of any man unfortunate enough to get into a romantic relationship with one of these "bitches."

Even though this book comes from the UK and was written by two UK therapists, it applies to women in the US, too, and it is about time that our therapists and our laws recognize that malicious women exist in our society and while they pretend to be victims and give performances that should be worthy of an Oscar, they are using the law as one of their favorite tools to enhance their maliciousness. In the US, domestic violence laws have created an industry that not only is thriving, but relies on misinformation and statistic manipulation to garner increased funding, provide increased employment opportunities for "victim advocates," and caused the imprisonment of countless numbers of innocent men falsely accused of domestic violence and/or sexual assault. This book provides examples of couples where the man was the victim of violent assaults, emotional and sexual abuse, and trapped in a relationship where he can't escape because the laws don't recognize his rights to property and access to his children equally with their female partners.

I bought this book because I wanted to learn how to deal with certain personalities I have encountered in volunteer work I do. I have seen patterns in certain women who are manipulative, create false stories of victimization, and resort to vindictive and destructive tactics to achieve their goals. See the brief story at the end for the kinds of experiences (the tamer ones) that prompted my search for this book. I am a man, by the way.

I couldn't find any books that bore solely on work/volunteer relationships, so this book was the next best thing.

The book is primarily for men in abusive, domestic relationships, although there is a brief section on abusive women in non-romantic relationships. I found the book was enlightening in a few ways. First, it showed me how society reacts to the man who has physical evidence he has been abused (disbelief, amusement in his apparently lack of manhood); and the tendency for agencies and even the legal system is to side with the women. This part resonated with me given the experience I share at the end of this review..

I recognize women have been victims far too much in the past, but this book alerted me to the tactics of abusive women, who capitalize on society's sympathies toward women, often concocting stories against men, and reporting them to people in authority, in order to get what they want. I wasn't aware of the legal risks that men face at the hands of abusive women given society's willingness to pin blame on men, as well as the frustrations men have experienced when women truly abuse them physically. There are stories of women who have stabbed men, threatened to kill them in their sleep, etcetera.
