The author opened my eyes to the mind of the controlling person, and helped me to understand how they think. She sees controlling people as being unable to see their loved one/victim as a real person. I like that this book supports the victim but does not simply beat up controlling personalities. Instead the world of the controlling person is explained in all its inflexibility and pathos.
After reading this book I was able to reduce the negative impact of the controlling people in my life and escape an oppressive relationship. It also helped me work out of a controlling person could change their ways or not. I have read many self help books but none helped me as much as this one. If you keep finding yourself in relationships with overbearing people who don’t hear you when you speak, this book may help you as well.

The summary is abusive men believe in an ideal relationship and get angry when a real partner appears in a relationship.
It's effectively about men who can't live beyond the honeymoon phase but repeats the same summary.
Only has a few pages of genuine information.
