An amazing read, so relevant and empowering for victims of emotional abuse. Recognized so many of the behaviors that I had been trying not to notice but my gut was telling me otherwise. This book made me realize a lot of things about my ex which I was previously not able to define or label. And most of all reinforced the decision I've made to leave an angry and controlling man. Fantastic read and I have been back over it many times, highlighting the relevant sections and phrases, to remind myself when I need reminding that it is not worth thinking about him anymore.
