This collection of meditations is just that, a source of strength and reassurance designed to speak to women in relationships with angry and controlling men. It helps you to digest what is happening so that you can gain clarity, safety and freedom.

Review

Praise for Why Does He Do That? "Bancroft has opened a window into the thinking of abusive men, and his book helps open a door out of abusive relationships."--Gavin de Becker, New York Times bestselling author of The Gift of Fear and Fear Less

"This is without a doubt the most informative and useful book yet written on the subject of abusive men."--Jay G. Silverman, PhD, director, Violence Prevention Programs, Harvard School of Public Health

"Jargon-free analysis is frequently broken up by interesting first-person accounts and boxes that distill in-depth information into simple checklists. Bancroft's book promises to be a beacon of calm for many storm-tossed families."--Publishers Weekly

"Bancroft boldly asks--and brilliantly answers--the most important questions of all: Why do so many men abuse women? What can be done about it? This book is desperately needed and long overdue."--Jackson Katz, creator of the award-winning video Tough Guise: Violence, Media and the Crisis in Masculinity

"This is essential reading for those in the helping professions and highly recommended."--Library Journal

"At last--the straight scoop on men who abuse women. This is a book not just for abused women and domestic violence professionals, but for everyone who wonders why there's so much violence in America. Read it."--Ann Jones, author of When Love Goes Wrong and Next Time, She'll Be Dead

"Bancroft helps women who feel trapped in unhealthy relationships make sense out of what is happening."--Sarah Buel, JD, codirector, Domestic Violence Clinic, and lecturer, University of Texas Law School

"A compelling read about a tough topic. What you read here will come back to you long after you put the book down."--Angela Browne, author of When Battered Women Kill

"An informative and necessary read."--Susan Weitzman, PhD, author of Not to People Like Us: Hidden Abuse in Upscale Marriages
