Enough! Taking Back Your Life After Years of Abuse by L. David Harris is a resource book that can greatly help victims of abusive relationships. It talks in great detail about the definition and kinds of abuse, how to escape from it, and the different organizations or people whom victims can ask for help when they want to leave the relationship. The book is intended for victims of abuse in a relationship or those who are not certain if they are in one. The author also discussed the possibilities of why a person would enter or stay in this kind of relationship.
Working in the healthcare system, I have come across women and men who have been victims of abuse, be it physical or psychological. I picked up this book in the hopes of finding more ways to help these people. Enough! Taking Back Your Life After Years of Abuse by L. David Harris sought to give the victims a way to escape from these destructive relationships and I believe that the book has accomplished its goal.
The book is incredibly thorough and comprehensive. If the reader is indeed in the kind of relationship mentioned in the book, they will be able to relate to what the author is talking about and will be relieved that the book offers solutions to their problems. A difficulty one might face would be to execute the plans suggested, even with the help of this book, because ultimately it would still be the victims who will be taking back their lives after years of abuse. The statistics mentioned are staggering and this is a really serious issue that doesn’t get much coverage, so I recommend this book to everyone, be they in an abusive relationship or not. We may never know when the knowledge this book offers will be used either by us or people we encounter.
