Jackson MacKenzie has become one of my favorite authors. He shares his detailed research and describes toxic partners almost perfectly. There are several topics that do not currently apply to me, however, I can now look back and see where they did apply in the beginning.
Jackson focuses on short term relationships, not long term partnerships or marriages. Aside from that, his descriptions are dead on. The book includes 30 red flags to look for (to identify a toxic partner) and also a 13 question quiz for those of us who are afraid we are labeling our partners harshly or possibly even projecting onto them.
I highly recommend this book for anyone suffering from an abusive relationship. Also see Whole Again.
