This eye-opening book begins by examining the most common misconceptions about the issue of male abuse.

After laying the groundwork for a serious reconsideration of how society thinksabout domestic violence, Cook allows a number of abused men to tell their stories. He thenputs these experiences in the context of what therapists and others who have worked withsuch men know about domestic violence and how the male victim is similar to, yet differentfrom, his female counterpart.

Cook shows how the abused man, his friends and family, and the abusive or abusedwoman can come to grips with domestic violence.
