This book could have been written ABOUT my ex-wife, it described her controlling, manipulative, self-serving, bullying, domineering, lying, cheating, sociopathic nature to a tee!
My ex-wife literally tried to destroy me after I told her I was aware of and had proof of her many extramarital affairs and was divorcing her, she tried every dirty trick in the book to try and damage me as much as she possibly could and put me in a position of destitution so that she could plunder as much wealth out of the divorce as possible, including making numerous serious false & malicious allegations about me to Police, to Courts & to Social workers
The thing that controlling bullies fear most is LOSS OF CONTROL over their victim, they will do almost anything to maintain a hold over you, including using your poor innocent young kids as weapons against you, telling one you plan to divorce her is the stupidest thing you could possibly do, if only I read this book before I made that fatal error and ended up in a dock in Crown Court, in front of a jury, falsely & maliciously accused of serious crimes that could have had me locked up for many many years, meanwhile my ex-wife and her new lover were flying around the world together, no less than 5 holidays abroad together the 1st year of their new relationship!
Many married parents in abusive relationships cling to a sinking wreck for the sake of their children, this book will show you why that is a very bad course of action and give you strategies for getting out with as little damage to you and your kids as possible
Written by British / Irish authors the book is UK / Ireland centric in terms of how it deals with the injustices and institutionally sexist "Family Courts" system and notorious organisations such as CAFCASS ( social workers who'd rather put kids into homes than let them see their Daddy just because their Mummy says he's evil ) BUT the traits of a sociopathic woman are universal so 80% of this book is relevant to a worldwide audience
It is an accepted fact that women in the UK behave extremely badly in divorce cases just because they know they can, they know the "Family Courts" are institutionally sexist and therefore biassed in their favour, they know that the police have PAP "positive arrest policies" on ANY ALLEGATION of "Domestic Violence" and they don't even need to show any signs of injury to have police drag you away from your children and your home in handcuffs just because they claim they are "Frightened" police will abuse their powers to impose bail conditions on you for as long they can, keeping you away from your home that the alleged "Victim" is still living in, even if they don't think they can charge you with any offences they will take months to "investigate" so that they can keep you on bail, out of your home, within 500 meters of your own community, estranged from your poor children who could well be cruelly abused in the absence of a paternal protector
Women living in less liberal societies may not be as brazen but again the overall subject matter is as universal as human nature, My ex-wife in fact was from a "Westernised" Muslim culture and many say that our whole marriage was simply for a visa & a British passport
I knew that woman was BAD but I never thought she could be SO EVIL !
This book is written by a male and a female author so please don't think it is a purely Male sexist viewpoint on all womankind, it certainly is not, it is balanced and deals only with sociopathic women, not women in general
This book isn't just for men in abusive relationships, it is equally popular amongst sisters and mothers of the sons & brothers who are abused, physically, mentally & sexually by these evil scheming women
Please don't make the mistake I did, buy this book and read it BEFORE you decide to leave her and NEVER TELL HER THAT YOU PLAN TO DIVORCE HER !
This work helps explain what happens when you have a socio-path in your life. This is important because if you are in an intimate relationship with a woman like this it is very difficult to see. You are the target of all the illusions, all the smoke an mirrors and every effort is being made to pull the wool over your eyes. This book will drag every trick and play out into the light so that you can see it for what it is. Making every manipulation made powerless, every ploy predictable
Even if you are not in this kind of relationship it is worth a read. It is worth knowing what the warning signs and marking out someone in your life who plays the charm game but has been caught out in a lie. From reading this you will know the games being played and won't be targeted for a fool.
It is even worth reading for women. This book could just as easily explain that friend or colleague who always makes that remark to make you feel bad but every seems to love. A sociopath will see the importance of having a female friend to validate her and will play a nice woman as well as any man.
The saddest part of the book is reading advise on how to get away from these women once married. I read this book in the hope that this would never be me and that I know now how to spot such a person.
