Like so many others I’ve been there and looking back from the viewpoint of No More! I can see how I could have recognized situations before I was in deeper than I should have been.
What I liked: No More! was not an easy book to read. It is so absolutely real that it’s painful to see how easily it is to be in the position of these examples. However, the information and suggestions in this book are essential to each of us.
Each section is clearly outlined and gives us a clear outline of warning signs, prevention tips, and clear examples so that we have not only the knowledge to adequately judge situations and trust our instincts but also how to potentially live through potentially dangerous situations.
What I didn’t like: I really think that the author has done a disservice by not placing enough of a significance on men that are put this the powerless situation, as well. Unfortunately, that’s happening more and more.
There are many behaviors outlined in No More! that are identified as being characteristics of a potential aggressor. My problem is that there are people – many – that exhibit these behaviors but would never commit such heinous acts. I think the more important point that should have been stressed is that it can be ANYONE. We need to stop thinking people are safe – and we need to stop thinking that it’s the fault of the victim!!
