BOOKS by Patricia Evans: 

The Verbally Abusive ManCAN HE CHANGE?

This book shows how to implement information from the previous books. If you are dealing with a verbal abuse issue, we highly recommend that before you read this latest book, you read "The Verbally Abusive Relationship" to know exactly what verbal abuse is, then read the V.A.Survivors Speak Out book to understand other forms of control, as well as how to cope and recover, then read "Controlling People" as it presents an important new paradigm to the world showing just why someone would pretend to be someone else, or to live within someone else, telling them their motives, or what they are thinking, or even what they are!.

Newsweek declared, The Verbally Abusive Relationship: How to Recognize it and How to Respond , -"A groundbreaking new book." It appeared in DEAR ABBY on New Year's Day 1998. Featured on the Oprah Show, Newsweek and CNN

Verbal Abuse Survivors Speak Out: On Relationship and Recovery explores the subject of verbal abuse in depth and brings many new insights, such as: The relationship is ended in the moment that one is defined because the perpetrator cannot see or hear the real person. It may be then reconstituted with a question, then ended again.

Controlling People, is a break-through book that, for the first time, shows why verbal abusers feel attacked when their partners tell them what is bothering them, and why they don't usually see themselves as controlling.


"I feel a compelling force to tell you that I consider your genuine blockbuster--Controlling People--to be probably the single greatest 'grande synthesis' I have yet seen. And I have seen hundreds of hundreds of ambitious but partial attempts at this over my 75 years.

  "I passionately hope you can persuade your publisher to give this gem the widest possible publicity among both lay and professional audiences. Human kind urgently needs this, both on an individual and a collective level. Nothing else seems to be working very effectively " David L. Quinby, Professor Emeritus, Youngstown State University, Youngstown, Ohio.)
