One of the things I love this book is that it doesn't assume gender or sexual orientation in the discussion or examples, and there's no religion. So many of these books seem to be written from such a Christian perspective with male-female gender norm couplings that it's hard to apply them if your situation doesn't fit that mould.
This book is a hard read. Probably for both parties, but as someone who has been abusive it was gut wrenching. A lot of it was also focused on fixing a broken relationship, so if like me you're too late and your partner has already left it's especially hard to swallow as it's full of things that if I'd heard and done a year ago might have saved us. That said there are good sections on moving forward and not making the same mistakes again. I have a lot of work to do, but at least now I have a road map.
