    I pre-ordered this book and received it today. Already I was in tears just from the introduction. I was thinking to myself this past week, "Why is this so hard to leave when I see the truth?" The illustration of the rope hit the nail on the head. This book seems to be an encouraging, hope filled, piece of work that I am looking forward to working through one day at a time. Thank you Lundy Bancroft for being willing to encourage those of us is abusive relationships. It gives me the hope to carry on and do the next right thing for myself and my children.

    My main "criticism" of Why Does He Do That was that it could be difficult to get through. The subject matter is triggering and heavy, and while the book does a fantastically thorough job, readers may need to take breaks in order to process it. The Daily Wisdom companion is a perfect complement to that. It introduces the main tenets of WDHDT without overwhelming the reader by presenting it in concise, poignant snippets. You can get through the book very quickly and it articulates very important, rewarding principles that will really resonate with someone who is going through abuse, and/or those who love someone who is. I highly recommend this book!

    An excellent practical guide for those in abusive relationships. It's less clinical and jarring than his first book Why Does He Do That?: Inside the Minds of Angry and Controlling Men and likely easier for those in abusive relationships to read. While he doesn't sugar coat things or give false hope, Mr. Bancroft is an empathetic voice and understands the difficulty and plight of those in abusive relationships.

    This is a great read with helpful advice not just for women in abusive or manipulative relationships, but all women. Each reading can be used as a tool for facing, understanding and potentially improving various areas of a relationship. While it recalls abusive patterns, types of abusers and other content from the original book, you don't have to have read Why Does He Do That? to benefit from this companion.

    A godsend.....Having read "Why Does He Do That?" I was hopeful this would contain more insight and support that I desperately needed. This did not disappoint. I will definitely be rereading this. Lundy Bancroft you are wonderful. Thanks so much for your wisdom and understanding. Your patience and acceptance shine through in your writing and truly moved me.

    A great companion to "Why Does He Do That?" or effective on its own, this book is full of page long readings to help you reframe your abuser's actions and to help you find ways to cope. A daily dose of encouragement may be all you need. I keep a copy in the bathroom and read from it "when I have a chance".

    Helpful and supportiveI read the first book which was incredibly informative. Decided to read this one and found it supportive. This author understands things women go through more than any of the tons of counselors I have been to.

    Derived from the information contained in Bancroft's other books, Why Does He Do That?: Inside the Minds of Angry and Controlling Men, Should I Stay or Should I Go?: A Guide to Knowing if Your Relationship Can--and Should--be Saved, and When Dad Hurts Mom: Helping Your Children Heal the Wounds of Witnessing Abuse, this book provides a year's worth of daily encouragements and exercises for people living in abusive relationships. Each day of the week has a theme, such as "Guiding Children" and "Clarity." The book can be used in the order it's laid out, or the reader can pick one theme that seems particularly relevant and work through all the entries as a unit. The nice thing about this book is that it gives the reader a daily dose of reality to counter the distorted view of life s/he gets from the abuser and the inevitable effects of abuse on the psyche. Hint: If you are afraid to buy this book because you think your abuser might find it, consider the audio book. You can listen to it on your phone or an mp3 player and it's much easier to hide. Just a thought. For people who want to support a person in an abusive relationship, I highly recommend the original Why Does He Do That?: Inside the Minds of Angry and Controlling Men. It's a trove of information and will help you understand both the abuser's behavior and its effects on his victims.
