  • Disclaimer: I dislike 5 star reviews because I’ve been in school for too long and 4 out of 5 still translates as a B in my mind. This book is not B work. It’s A-, a 4.45, but there is no 4.45 category, so I went with 4, but please be advised that The Safety Factor deserves better than a mere 4. Here’s why:This is a quick-moving, action-packed journey story that explores many universal themes: the search for one’s role in society and the world, the quest for personal fulfillment, and even [...]

She thought it was pointless to write such a book, that men (and unfortunately a few women as well) in positions of power to perpetrate such acts are seldom exposed, let alone sufficiently restricted by society so that they don’t repeat offend.In the book, “Shame, Blame, and Child Sexual Abu [...]
