An Ounce of Prevention by Gary W Kirby is more than a mere book; it is a gift to people in relationships and to families, a book that offers emotional and physical freedom and health in relationships. Domestic abuse is one of the troubling issues affecting many couples and children, and this author believes that it can be prevented. In this book he offers tools that readers can use to understand the cycle of violence and abuse, diagnose aggressive and abusive tendencies in individuals or partners, identify the tools to curb abuse and help those who are abused in any kind of way experience freedom and protection.

In this book, the author underlines powerful themes and helps readers with a fresh perspective on understanding violence: it’s all about control and power. The book also offers tips and insights that help anyone understand whether they are abusive or not. I enjoyed how the author weaves personal experience into the narrative, writing with an honesty that gives authority to this book. It’s a slim book but packed with useful tips and the information we all need to fight domestic violence and abuse in intimate relationships. And while the author offers readers a clear understanding of the subject, he allows the effects of violence and abuse on children to come out clearly through the writing. An Ounce of Prevention is a book with a powerful message of hope, a message that we can transform our relationships through an understanding of abuse and find the tools to create relationships that enhance both our emotional and physical health.
