Publisher Comments:

From the Publisher: A first-ever how-to book to help abusive men change their behavior by changing their thinking. Domestic abuse is the leading cause of injury to American women between the ages of 15 and 44. Women's shelters, advocacy programs, and counseling centers have been created to respond to victims' needs, but what can be done to prevent domestic violence in the first place? At last, here is a powerful, positive tool to help abusive men break the cycle of abuse. Stop Hurting the Woman You Love shows men how to identify their distorted thinking-often rooted in feelings of entitlement and male privilege-in order to change the beliefs that fuel their need to control and lead to abusive behavior. Real-life case histories, thought-provoking questionnaires, and a conversational tone engage readers, helping them raise self-awareness and to change beliefs. The book's step-by-step cognitive behavioral approach gives men a proven action plan for putting their new, healthy approach into practice.

Synopsis:

End the cycle of abuse - for good. Authors Charlie Donaldson, Randy Flood and Elaine Eldridge uncover a proven action plan that violent men can use to change their behavior. Filled with insightful questionnaires and actual case histories, the essential how-to book Stop Hurting the Woman You Love, will help end abusive patterns in favor of healthier, happier relationships.

Synopsis:

Encourages abusive men to change the beliefs that fuel their need to control, teaching them how to identify the distorted thinking that leads to abuse--often rooted in feelings of entitlement and male privilege--rather than simply managing their anger. Original. 15,000 first printing.

Patrick Hillary, November 24, 2012 (view all comments by Patrick Hillary)
What a joke. I have never seen a book this badly written, with such outdated information. It is obvious the the author believes all marital problems are the fault of the husband / man. Their contention that men can't be victims of domestic violence is obtuse. The idea that if the woman withholds sex, cooking or the children, or talking bad to the children about her husband it is usually the fault of the man is unfounded and prejudicial against men. Don't waste your money on this book unless you have an outhouse (the one place the pages from this book may be useful.)
