Books/ support for those in EA relationship

All, am hoping for some of your expertise here.

I've spent the weekend with one of my close friends who has lifted the lid on her relationship.
I had been concerned about her for a while, this weekend confirmed that I was right to be worried about her.

There are clear signs of EA in the form of control, sulking, inappropriate behaviour towards her, drinking issues etc etc. They don't have DC's or any financial entanglements so she in theory should be able to have a fairly clean break. Emotionally breaking away will be harder as she admits 'he has ground her down'.

She's has asked for support. I know if I give her books to read/ links to websites they will help her fundamentally open her eyes to what is happening and make her decision on what to do moving forward.

So please MNetters, please suggest books etc that I should suggest she reads.

She's beautiful / intelligent and an amazing amazing person who deserves so much more. sad

There's a thread on here called 'support for those in emotionally abusive relationships'. I just posted on it thinking it would shove it up to page 1 here on relationships, but it doesn't appear to have worked. I found it on page 3. There's a rather lengthy sticky as introduction and all the info you are likely to need is on there.
