This book is the only book I have discovered telling true insight stories to battered women, explains the cycles, some very realistic stories. It is based on interviews with numerous battered women, some of thier stories and will help people who have not been in that predicament have a better understanding of what they go throught and why they stay. Really opened my mind.
I ordered this for a friend. She doesn't speak English, but I was able to give her some of the information in the book. It's a great work. I do wish I could find more information on "second-generation abuse", where for example, the kids learn to abuse from the abusive parent. This is her situation. Book came in great shape, quickly.
