If you are a student, researcher, friend or family member of a victim or a victim yourself it provides information about research, stories from real victims, a comprehensive self-help chapter, details myths and misinformation, catalogues resistance to the issue and explains why it exists, and offers a comprehensive list of low-expense solutions that can be adopted by public and private agencies.

Here are just a FEW of the many reviews received for Abused Men-The Hidden Side of Domestic Violence:
"It reads like 1,000 Dear Abby letters…Fascinating…but it explains the many aspects of domestic violence. A wealth of material that could be helpful.” --’Dear Abby’ Abigail Van Buren, Syndicated Columnist.
“The wife with a rolling pin is no joke, but a statistical fact…Cook shows at length, that the sexes have two contrasting strategies…By Cook’s own standards, those of a journalist, this is a highly successful book.” --West Coast Review of Books
“Unique. It is a book likely to be helpful to many men, and if action is taken on the agenda outlined in the final chapter, to our country as a whole.” --Murray A. Straus, Ph.D., Co-Director Family Research Laboratory, University of New Hampshire. Co-Author, Behind Closed Doors-Violence in the American Family.
“Cook writes in an interesting and inviting manner, the engaging style of a journalist providing an in-depth discussion of a topic that he acknowledges is controversial, emotionally laden, and in conflict with many beliefs about abuse and violence in America." -Journal of Marriage and the Family
