Iâ€™m involved with NCFM because I support the organization’s goals of being dedicated to the removal of harmful sex based stereotypes and discrimination against men, their children, families, and the women who love them. I am particularly interested in NCFM’s work to help all victims of family violence.
Mr. Cook is the author of Abused Men-The Hidden Side of Domestic Violence (Praeger/Greenwood). His work objectively examines and explains relevant research results, the feelings and problems of interviewed victims, and provider and media response to the issue. He has examined scores of national and international domestic violence and family programs and evaluated their potential for helpful replication. â€śIt reads like 1,000 Dear Abby lettersâ€¦Fascinatingâ€¦but it explains the many aspects of domestic violence. A wealth of material that could be helpful,â€ť Dear Abbyâ€™ Abigail Van Buren, Syndicated Columnist. â€śThe wife with a rolling pin is no joke, but a statistical factâ€¦Cook shows at length, that the sexes have two contrasting strategiesâ€¦By Cookâ€™s own standards, those of a journalist, this is a highly successful book.â€ť -West Coast Review of Books
