Reviews of Take Back Your Life: Recovering From Cults and Abusive Relationships

• "Take Back Your Life is must reading for everyone who wants to understand the powerful appeal that cults have for so many ordinary people, using so many disguises, with so many subtle tactics. This book's wisdom is vital for us all."

— Philip G. Zimbardo, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology, Stanford University

• “Former members of cults (including those born or raised in such groups) and individuals coming out of abusive relationships will gain valuable insights from this book on how to deal with those experiences and their aftermath. Concerned professionals, family members, and friends will also find useful advice on aiding those who have been abused. I believe that Take Back Your Life is the most insightful practical introduction to this subject.”
—Michael D. Langone, Ph.D., Executive Director, International Cultic Studies Association

• “This comprehensive book takes the former cult member through all the necessary healing stages—from understanding the effects of mind control and cult involvement to taking positive steps toward a healthy, balanced recovery. I highly recommend this book, which respects the strength, courage, dignity, and intelligence of former cult members.”
—Carol Giambalvo, author, Exit Counseling: A Family Intervention

• “I wish every cult member, and every family of a cult member, struggling to free himself from the trauma of membership in a destructive relationship could read Take Back Your Life. It offers the powerful healing medicine of understanding.”
—Eugene H. Methvin, Senior Editor, Reader's Digest

• “Take Back Your Life is an intelligent, well-written book that will be invaluable to former cult members, their families, and anyone who wishes to understand the cult phenomenon. This book will be a classic and will have to be added to every cult watcher’s library, where it will be consulted again and again.”
—Lorna Goldberg, M.S.W., L.C.S.W., and William Goldberg, M.S.W., L.C.S.W.
