This is a great book for anyone who is affected by emotional abuse. It's like a manual readers can go back to when they feel confused, especially since abusers breed confusion in order to remain in control.

Every year since 1987, the month of October has been officially recognized as Domestic Violence Awareness Month. While that campaign focuses more on the physical manifestations of abusive relationships, Lisa Kroulik's new book "Emotional Assault: Recognizing the Abusive Partner's Bag of Tricks" looks more at the psychological mind games and bullying behavior that often make up the personality of an abusive male partner. While acknowledging that both men and women are capable of emotional and physical abuse, Kroulik focuses on the male aggressor/female victim in this book upon the advice of her editor.
While some emotional abusers gradually progress to physical abuse, many do not. Women who are subject to verbal abuse and emotional manipulation often feel like they have no right to complain because their partner has never hit them. The abusive partner often reminds her of how good she has it and lets her know she is crazy to even question his hurtful and immature behavior. This book sheds light on many of the tactics emotionally abusive people use, all the while bragging that they would never do anything to hurt their wife or girlfriend. Kroulik herself was in this type of relationship and wrote this book to be an encouragement to others.
