This book is very informative about a range of topics, from identifying an emotional abuse situation right through to how to handle being in the relationship. While it was interesting, with regards to the abusive personality, I think an extra chapter focusing on the reader, rather than the abuser would be a welcome addition. Sometimes you just have to get out of such a situation and put yourself first. i felt this was rather brushed over.
This book is a good first step to getting help though. Sometimes admitting to yourself that you are being emotionally abused is the toughest step. This book will make you face up to reality bravely.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I enjoyed the subject matter quite a bit. It was full of a good amount of information for such a short amount of time.
Any additional comments?
A well explained segment advising the reader in a similar sutuation on how to deal with the subject matter, and how the subject matter was far more complex than first thought of.

This book reinforced everything I had been thinking and feeling. I refer to it often for reminders of what I do not want and why I cannot go back. I was not the crazy one or the bad guy in that relationship. Thank you, author. Well done!
This author and therapist gives the finest advise for couples mired in this dance. She is a rare voice of compassion and hope amid what is generally an onslaught of condemnation for abusers. Thank you for this update!
