It was Patricia Evans who first brought the critical issue of verbal abuse to national attention with the publication of her groundbreaking classic "The Verbally Abusive Relationship". In the decade since, she's become the foremost advocate for the billions of victims of verbal abuse here and around the world. From her bestselling books to her workshops and seminars, Evans has dedicated her life to bringing help and healing to those who need it most - and who often suffer in silence, not knowing where to turn or what to do. Now readers get even more of the answers they need to recognise abuse when it happens, respond to abusers safely and appropriately, and most important, lead happier, healthier lives. In two all-new chapters of this updated edition, Evans reveals why verbal abuse is more widespread than ever, and how victims can deal with it.

Only 25 pages in, I ordered a copy from Amazon because I was running out of post-it notes. This is the book I have been longing for for 35 years! Finally someone who believes me! I am going to photo copy about 5 pages and send them to all my friends who tell me I am crazy. All our previous counselors gave exactly the wrong advice and told me my husband was damaged so patience is required. This book tells me he CHOOSES to be this way and my sympathy and patience is his winning. A must read for any woman who has to interact with any man who makes her feel stupid, worthless, or just inadequate in some way.

I'm almost done reading this book and boy oh boy what an eye opener. Even though I left my verbally abusive husband years ago, the scars still remain. The positive thing is noticing whats happening and getting out of the relationship.
