On Best Books of 2019 NYT list
Rachel Snyder's research is intense and the book is not what anyone would call an "easy read." However, it's important for everyone to take a look at how we treat victims of domestic violence, what the statistics say about gun accessibility in relation to DV, and how important it is for first responders to have adequate training in handling intimate partner violence cases. We could all use some self reflection when it comes to our own attitudes regarding violence in the home: "Why does she stay?" is answered in this book over and over again. We no longer need to ask the accusatory question.
Poorly researched. Badly written. Uninformed.
The author interviewed and quoted several colleagues and friends. I have invested the last 10+ years of my life writing a blog for survivors of domestic violence and child abuse. I have read and reviewed hundreds of books about domestic violence and books written by survivors. This one is by far the worst.
We know a lot about domestic violence. Sadly, the author didn't invest the time to ferret out successful best practices.
