Summary

Summary

Even if you've read Why Does He Do That?, it may be hard to see the truth of what is happening to you. You may feel overwhelmed by confusion, loss, and fear, and find yourself looking away from the truth and falling back into traumatic patterns.
Like a constant friend, this collection of meditations is a source of strength and reassurance designed to speak to women like you, women in relationships with angry and controlling men. It helps you to digest what is happening a piece at a time, so that you can gain clarity, safety, and freedom. To learn to value and respect yourself—even when your partner makes it very clear that he does not—each day centers on one of seven themes designed to empower, encourage, and inspire you . . .

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Bancroft has opened a window into the thinking of abusive men, and his book helps open a door out of abusive relationships.” Gavin de Becker, New York Times bestselling author of The Gift of Fear
“Bancroft boldly asks—and brilliantly answers—the most important questions of all: Why do so many men abuse women? What can be done about it? This book is desperately needed and long overdue.” Jackson Katz, creator of the award-winning video Tough Guise: Violence, Media and the Crisis in Masculinity
“Jargon-free analysis is frequently broken up by interesting first-person accounts and boxes that distill in-depth information into simple checklists. Bancroft’s book promises to be a beacon of calm for many storm-tossed families.” Publishers Weekly
“This is essential reading for those in the helping professions and highly recommended.” Library Journal
“This is without a doubt the most informative and useful book yet written on the subject of abusive men.” Jay G. Silverman, PhD, director, Violence Prevention Programs, Harvard School of Public Health
“Bancroft helps women who feel trapped in unhealthy relationships make sense out of what is happening.” Sarah Buel, JD, codirector, Domestic Violence Clinic
