1.0 out of 5 stars A little frustrating to read., 7 Feb. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Stalking the Soul: Emotional Abuse and the Erosion of Identity (Paperback)
Well I bought this book on the high recommendations it seems to have attracted. However, I was disappointed. Overall the book is often difficult to read and therefore, digest. It is written by a psychiatrist in a language that perhaps only another psychiatrist would feel comfortable with. The explanations seem to describe extreme emotional abuse or very mild emotional abuse and not much inbetween. As a consequence, I will shop around for other more helpful books on the subject.

Hi Pease Blossom, have you tried "Why does he do that" by Lundy Bancroft? I found the book invaluable and have recommended it to some friends. You will see afew people you recognise in there and possibly some of yourself too, I know I did. I keep it on my bookshelf to remind me that I never want to go back to that kind of relationship and will hopefully recognise that kind of behaviour before the relationship has gone on too long next time. Why Does He Do That?: Inside the Minds of Angry and Controlling Men

Hi there! Thanks very much for the recommendation, I'll try and source it on Amazon. It's always good to hear about what other people have found helpful so thanks again for letting me know about this book. I'll give it a go!

Two easy to read books are by American Author, Susan Forward: 1. Toxic Parents and 2. Men to Hate Women and the Women to Love Them. Both provide useful anecdotal examples of abuse and come with clearly written explanations of abuse and there is a section on healing strategies too.
