In recent months, as a clinician, I’ve been researching topics of empathy, how to strengthen empathy, and the impact of a psychopathic (empathy-less) parent. Partly because I…
Praise for THE OTHER SIDE OF CHARM
I have never commented on any site or forum before, but I have to say that your book is incredible. I finished it about a week ago and found it to be chilling and moving. I couldn’t put it down... please, please, please keep up the work you are doing to warn people. Truly one of the best books I have ever read.

This is a brilliant, riveting, and highly emotional exploration of what it’s like to be helpless against evil. You will not want to believe that something like this could happen. You will want to believe that there is too much justice in the world for something like this to occur. But Beverly will show you that it does. And you won’t be able to look away.

In her new book, “The Other Side of Charm: Your Memoir,” author H. G. Beverly gives voice to the emotional experience of being married to, or more appropriately, ambushed by, a psychopath. She captures the shock, outrage, disbelief and confusion better than any book I’ve ever read.

Thank you for being the voice of those that can't find their own. Thank you for fighting to shed light on this darkness. If you do a book tour or become a traveling advocate, please come to Southwest Virginia!
I am not even half-way through the book yet, but its perfectly chosen, breathless stifling style creates in me, as reader, the same trapped feelings of relentless pressure, confusion and blindness, as the writer experienced while these traumatic events were unfolding over a period of years… it is indeed brilliantly written, and is causing me to wonder how many times I’ve been taken in by such ruthless deployers of unscrupulous charm. The book is an essential read if only because it poses that question to all of us in a way that permits no evasion.

"The Other Side of Charm" is a memoir of enormous courage and sadness.
Your book is beautifully written. I was captivated within the first couple sentences and could not stop reading until the end. It's been a while since I've read such a touching, heartbreaking, emotionally captivating and beautiful book as yours. It has left a deep impression on my heart and mind, and I just wanted to say thank you for writing it. Your writing style made it all that much more unique and captured so many emotions.
H.G. Beverly perfectly captured the impossible nightmare that unfolds when a psychopath latches onto an unsuspecting target. I am very sorry for what she experienced, but I am so grateful that she had the courage to share her story and help other survivors out of the darkness. You won’t be able to put this book down. The author has a great deal of insight into her own character, which makes for a fast-paced story that is introspective, emotional, and a testament to the empathetic human spirit. It tugs on your heart and won’t let go.
