Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: "I have been in awe of Dorma McGruder since I met her the first time over 30 years ago. It deeply saddened me to know she was in an abusive relationship. But knowing her as I do, I am not surprised she has won. Power is on every page. You must read this book. IT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE!!! Les Brown, International Motivational Speaker 1 Bad Decision put me in hell. 1 Good Decision got me out. He beat me. He kicked me. He tortured me. He left me for dead. And he never touched me. Jacqueline made good business and personal decisions until Tyrone Perkins walked into her business and smelled her perfume of desperation. He knew she needed love and attention and was living with low self-esteem. Tyrone knew she was not rich in praise. He told her how smart she was and even went to church with her. Once. Then like a full grown boa constrictor, bit her, then slowly and patiently started squeezing life out of her. The boa constrictor wraps itself around its victim and every time the victim takes a breath, the boa squeezes tighter. The victim actually helps the snake kill them. Every single time Jacqueline tried to take a deep breath to think clearer, he squeezed tighter. She decided to end the relationship. She was afraid to leave and afraid to stay. But he was not going to let her go. Whether she had his money or not, doing 90 miles an hour on I-94, at 6:00 in the morning, Tyrone made up his mind. No woman talked to him like that. He never loved her because he didn’t have to love anyone but himself. He destroyed every woman he touched. She was no better but she was different. She would weaken and cry, but denied him the satisfaction of her failure. She was less than she was when he met her, but would not break. She was still standing. Every torture fantasy he had was going to come true. His desire was stronger than it had been in a long time as he planned his final attack. He would take her to a secluded spot in an unused park, force her to perform the humiliating acts she refused, then take his time and painfully, methodically, and slowly, torture and beat her to death. He got out of the car and walked up to the building. No lights on. She was asleep. He would scare the life out of her. He stomped up the steps, slammed the apartment door and started screaming for her. He didn’t care about waking the neighbors at this hour. They would not see him after today anyway. “Jackie! Jackie! Where are you? JACKIE!!” He started turning on lights, but none came on. He was so mad, he didn’t realize it at first and kept walking through the apartment back to their bedroom. His eyes did not believe what he knew he was seeing. The empty glass of water. The empty pill bottle. It was over. He had lost. He did not have to rape or beat her. He would never get the chance. What They Are Saying "You saved the life of a mother, sister, friend and daughter. I purchased several books for my clients. She did not tell me, but one of them was going to commit suicide after our next session. She could not take the abuse from her husband any longer but was afraid to leave him. She read your book and decided that if you could come through all that you have, she could win too. She found the courage to divorce her husband, take her children, leave the State, finish school and find a job. Dr. Marlene Paskel Psychologist, Southfield, MI I could only read half of your book. I was doing to my wife what Tyrone was doing to you. I knew I was hurting her but until I read your book, I did not know how bad her pain was. I stopped what I was doing and saying, and we are now in counseling. You saved our marriage and her life. Marvin Tyler Detroit, MI I paid the price for 1 Bad Decision. I am winning with my 1 Good Decision. This book will give you the courage and strength to love yourself, never look back, and see that when you have nothing but a little bit of faith and a dream, that is all you need!
