    Really eye opening. Victims of (partner)abuse need lots of support and compassion. Ending an abusive relationship seems incredibly difficult. "As a society, it is important to understand the various types of biochemical and psychological bonds that often create attachments between abusers and their victims.

    Being an abuse survivor, the concept the author writes about makes perfect sense to me. I still struggle with the fight/flight response in reaction to very ordinary, run of the mill scenarios, on a regular basis. It would be nice to know how to stop it. I understand this was merely a "pamphlet", and the actual book should have been released, but I haven't looked for it.

    Brilliant I've just escaped from this type of relationship. I thought I was ok. I thought I was strong. But I now realise even I, strong, tough, independent me, has been damaged! The book helped me realise this. I got upset, I cried, I got angry and now I'm going to get help. Hopefully I will be able to move on one day and find a loving fulfilling relationship.

    Excellent and spot on when it comes to describing how it feels to be a survivor and the torment one faces in the aftermath. I finally understand why I stayed when I no longer felt love or connection. This was critical to my healing and letting go.

    Straight to the point. Informative... ...yet not a struggle to absorb the content. Encourages compassion for self, as well as clearly labelling the damage done, by perpetrators as well as by those whose comments can further confuse or derail us on our journey to freedom. Good.

    Meh. Short read because it’s a “guide” not a book. Had some good points but I don’t have a lot of confidence in the writing.

    Going through the journey of healing, eye opening I've been going through counseling, soul searching, digging to my depths, researching, journaling and grabbing for any piece of information to help me understand **why** I am still wanting my ex (who is emotionally abusive), despite all of the *very clear reasons* that I shouldn't. This was the missing piece of the puzzle I've been praying for. It finally makes sense. Once I understand something, I can move forward.
