I was reading this book recently and my 8yo son glanced at a couple of paragraphs over my shoulder and said, "This is about my dad, isn't it?" The style is direct enough for him to recognize what it was for, and it turned out to be incredibly helpful for both of us to recover from years of verbal abuse and manipulation. I heartily recommend reading this book as a companion volume to Why Does He Do That, also by Lundy Bancroft. They make for extremely illuminating and cathartic reading, and serve as wonderful and necessary reminders that the victims are just that -- the abusers make the conscious choices that shape the relationship in a negative way.
