Publisher's Summary

I am a survivor of an 11-year physically and emotionally abusive relationship. I suffered beatings, broken bones, knocked out teeth, public humiliation, and several serious murder attempts. This is unfortunately not a new story in our society today.
I'm a six-foot-three-inch, 200-pound man and my abuser was a five-foot-seven-inch, 130-pound woman. Stockholmed is the story of the transformation I made from a self-assured, successful young man to a beaten-down shadow of my former self, praying every day that death would release me from my psychological prison cell. The title, Stockholmed was derived from Stockholm syndrome. I believe that nearly everyone living in an abusive relationship suffers from a combination of Stockholm syndrome and PTSD. Domestic violence is not gender specific, and violence is simply one of the tools an abuser uses to keep his or her victim in line.

Deja Vu

First I'll address the technical I thought the book was well written if somewhat however the nature of the events as they occurred were repetitive and escalating in violence so this repetitiveness is unavoidable and necessary to convey the insidious corrosive effects on the victim.
The narration was excellent Mr Block did a very fine job it was almost like watching a movie of course credit for this effect also goes to Mr Larson for his conversational style and delivery.
As for the story itself and the author's purpose I can attest to having lived through the first 2 years of this during my second betrothal, I believe that if I had this book available at the midway point I may have saved myself a lot of misery. Luckily I was a victim in my mid 30 ties (more life experience) and had a good support group to help me the reason I bring this up is in the hopes of aiding Dave in his purpose of helping similarly trapped people GET HELP. It ISNT YOU. Life will definitely get better.
I'am sure Dave has and will help many people break the cycle
Of abuse.
Congratulations on a job well done.
