  • “Hennessy's book Steps to Freedom . . . details how a woman can wrest herself out from under the control of an emotionally abusive partner.” —Irish Independent
  • “The best book about a husband abusing his wife ever documented. I highly recommend this book, and will keep it as the go-to manual.”
  • “Excellent. Empowering and realistic – and unlike most books out there on the topic of domestic abuse. Every woman at risk should read this, and every counsellor, pastor and therapist should too. The issue of mind-control and grooming in the midst of intimate relationships are game-changers. God bless Don Hennessy.”
  • “A must-read. For anyone in the process of leaving an abusive relationship, or healing after one, this book is essential. It gets at the underlying structure and function of an abusive relationship, and how to make personal choices to protect yourself.”
  • “This is the book for every woman who has ever dealt with abuse in any form. This author is not only extremely knowledgeable, but able to communicate to every ‘target’ in understandable language while explaining cutting-edge research. This man has a keen grasp on what is happening in the minds of both the ‘skilled abuser’ and the ‘target-woman’, and provides a road to healing and escape for the victim.”
  • “Very useful. Don looks at abuse from a very different angle. Refreshing, actually!”
  • “Finally, a book geared toward victims trying to get out that gets it right (doesn’t shame, blame, or direct the victim what to do).”
  • “Every time you embrace a bit more truth, every time you reclaim a bit more of yourself, you take a step toward being free.”
  • “Don gives an in-depth explanation of what happens in an abusive relationship far better, and with greater accuracy, than the victim herself. . . . A life-saving book.”
  • “An incredible book. Highly recommended for professionals and therapists, and survivors of emotional abuse.”
  • “This book described exactly my abuser – and how I survived in the relationship until I escaped.”
  • “A massive breakthrough on controlling relationships. Anyone working with women and families should have a copy.”
  • “Hennessy is probably the best expert on domestic abuse in the world.” —Barbara Roberts, author of Not Under Bondage
