Smashwords book reviews by Elizabeth Bailey

  • Humbling and Humility on June 08, 2015

    This book was a startling revelation for me of the American legal system as it affects the ordinary man. The author writes his very personal story of his battle with his wife's infidelity and the crisis of discovery that led to his conviction of domestic violence and the subsequent ordered months attending remedial group sessions. He writes of the group with humour and interest, and one can track the changes in his thinking as he strives to reconcile himself to the unfairness of his situation. I found the group sessions entertaining in an odd way, and the images were so clearly delineated, I could imagine the different individuals who made up the group. Intriguing too, to gain an insight into the male mind. The writer seems to have gained from the sessions in terms of empathy with his fellow man, and his subsequent efforts to help others through similar problems of marital discord drew me very firmly into his world. Although he speaks of his suffering, in fact he downplays this aspect which led me to believe that he did indeed go through a deal of angst. Apart from the blow to his personal goals which he seems to have faced with fortitude, his efforts to ensure his children's happiness, his anxiety to do his best in his role as father and his agonising over the unhelpful example provided by his wife all came across strongly and one could not help but feel for him in his predicament. It's such a personal tale, it felt almost intrusive to be reading it. Necessarily one-sided, I did at times feel the urge to hear the wife's point of view. She came across in a very poor light because, despite the writer obviously attempting to avoid bias, it was clearly impossible to be wholly fair. On the whole, I found it an intriguing, interesting and sometimes shocking read, although there were times when the text meandered, became repetitive and rambling, and thus the later chapters were less absorbing. But a worthwhile investment of time, especially for the tough lesson in the clear prejudice against men that has arisen from the laws formulated to protect women. This needs addressing and I hope this book goes far and wide so that the abuses of the system are understood and eradicated.
