review: This was a thought-provoking book, one that I am ashamed to say I had to force myself to start reading. Not because of any problem with the book itself, but with my own shrinking away from facing an issue that touches thousands who don't come forward for fear of that same puling away.

Not because of any problem with the book itself, but with my own shrinking away from facing an issue that touches thousands who don't come forward for fear of that same puling away. This book is a helping tool to not only women who love a male who has been abused but also to other men in the man who has been abused life to get an idea of the terrible cost child molestation has on the boys and men who have suffered from it. Not only from the physical, and emotional point of view but also the self doubting and questioning that can come about from being an abused child. I recommend this book for anyone who may have someone in their life who has been abused as a boy. It is a hard book to read, to sit down and face a truth that is mostly hidden away from everyone. But if we aren't willing and ready to open a book on this subject will we ever be ready to embrace those who have lived it. ( )

When I first began reading this book, I didn't think it would be helpful, but as the book progressed there was a great deal of helpful information. It is a good book not only for spouses, but for the man who was abused himself. ( )

although i am not a man nor have i , thankfully, known a man who was sexually abused i found this book to be very informative with page after page of situations that i also could relate to having been there myself . this book did help me to understand the differences, although both are horific, between what a male vs a female goes through. i found myself reading, re-reading and highlighting passages on every page as a confirmation of how i feel or have felt. i am not really sure i can see it as a guide for women to use to help a man whom she loves whose been abused as much as a real life encounter of what the author went through and the journey he took and is possibly still taking to overcome the emmence damage done to him. i feel that anyone, both male or female can benefit from reading this book, i did. i would definately reccomend this book to all for there are many more out there who have been abused and just having those around them understand what they are going through would be of tremendous support.

This book had a lot of valuable information on the subject of male sexual abuse. Although the flow of topic transition was a bit choppy, overall, the book was very informative. I would recommend this book to any man who has experienced abuse or anyone who knows someone who has. ( )

This was a very educational book. I would recommend this to anyone studying the subject of adults and sexual abuse. Amazon currently sells this book and at the time I checked was getting a 5 star rating. I would assume that those who are dealing with this issue or looking for research information on this issue would find this book extremely beneficial. ( )
