I believe that this real-life story will resonate with scores of people who find themselves in the midst of an abusive environment.

As I read this book, and wrote this review, I was deeply moved by this story, with the knowledge that physical and emotional abuse are very common occurrences which affect hundreds of thousands (perhaps millions) of people daily in the United States alone.
Thank you Casey

I related so well to Casey
's experience because I, too, have suffered the long-term devastating effects of loving and living with an alcoholic.
This story brought me to a much deeper awareness - I realize I am not alone.
I also learned that I am not as far along on my journey to recovery as I thought - but I'm not discouraged!
I'm inspired now more than ever to continue that sometimes very painful path to healing.
I have enormous respect and gratitude for Casey

The abusive nature of alcoholic relationships
, when you asked me to read this book as a favor to give a male perspective, I did not expect that I could apply any of it to myself, as I never considered myself a victim of abuse.
, I got home about an hour after I saw you and got involved, in your book.
, Thank you for your wonderful book, 'Crawling Out'.
I will use my new awareness to come to grips with my own domestic problems, guilt, and isolation, and become a better person.
Your book will guide me toward the expert advice, the processes, documentation, needed.
I will proceed one step at a time toward better health, peace within myself, and a better life for those that mean the most to me. Thank you Casey
