I have Dave Pelzer's books and have known for years how abuse works.I was in a religious cult that was so abusive towards children and members.Today they still exist.A small group that is still there denies all the sorrow happened,however I was in it for 25 years and know it certainly did happen.The memory is a funny thing you only remember what you want too.Just like David's grandmother she is the liar, as she perpatrates the lie that abuse did not exist with her or her daughter, for to admit would mean she would have to account for such evil at least thats how she sees it.As for Daves many marriages good for him at least he is still trying and believes maybe this time He will succeed.

Concerned Citizen/Richard - you are not fooling anybody. Dave owes you nothing, learn to stand on your own two feet. Dave has acheieved so much in his life and for that I congratulate him. Jealousy and tall poppy syndrome are part of the package.

I cannot help but find your story incredulous. I truly feel for the victims of childhood abuse, but there is not a chance that you truly endured all the torture you have written about like a Sesame Street version of an Eli Roth film. Such a stab wound, the toxic gases, either one alone would kill a grown man. Speaking of the stab wound, "in the heart", really?! Your self serving tripe only cheapens the suffering endured by thousands of children the world over every day, and only encourages the shallowness of those who learned from other such "inspirational" books such as "Eat,Pray,Love" by Elizabeth Gilbert

ummm Marsha why did you leave him? You were so happy in his books and I was so glad when he found you. I was so upset to see you had divorced.

I am not Richard, nor am I Dave. I am actually female. To clarify again: No, Dave is not getting married right now, but he probably will again in the future, but not to anyone he is currently dating, and not to the fiance mentioned below (btw her name was Tracy). Being famous is never easy, and it comes with its own set of struggles that Dave faces, as does anyone in the public eye. There is speculation that people only want something from you, instead of giving something to you. That is why the barrier exists. You put a life of turmoil, grief and betrayal on top of the fame, and it only thickens the walls around someone. Some statements on this board are correct, and others are just attempts to sensationalize the board for the readers. Dave is truly a great man, but he also comes with a very large ego (which gets him in trouble a lot!). However, he has more than earned his place at the table. He struggles with acceptance and trust, so he misses out on many great things in life. He has a strong and tough exterior with a very frightened interior. He is the age of 47, soon to be 48 in December. He lives in Rancho Mirage, California with a second home at Dana Point. He dates many different people, and won’t let people get too close. He travels too much. He prefers boxers over briefs. He prefers red over white wines. He smokes cigars (which btw he should stop if he wants to find a classy dame!) He likes his women like his coffee and cars: strong and fast. He has owned a couple of companies, of which his primary one is D-Esprit; he has only a few employees, all of which are a little odd. Ever since Marsha left him, the business hasn't quite been the same. He protects his identity by role playing as other people: appearing border line Multiple Personality Disorder, even though he is mentally stable. In conclusion, yes, he has issues, as all of us do, but he is a great man that will be used to do many great things. Yes, he makes a very good financial living doing it, which should not be criticized, but should be thought of as THE AMERICAN DREAM! Only in the USA can one come from the atrocity of abuse, and rise to the top. Remember to never judge another, as many of you have chosen to do, but rather first look in the mirror to sort out your own struggles of how to become the man or woman that you were meant to be. To Dave: God Bless you and my thoughts are always with you during these times of searching!

To anonymous/richard it's safe to say your not getting an invite to the wedding. Egg on your face when it happens.

These books that David wrote are truely touching and I just wish people can stop and think of what they are doing to their kids before they kill them. David's books really touch my heart and now I know how he felt to go hungry.

You are absolutely correct Shirley, he was engaged a year ago. He took both her and Marsha to the Carriage House in Carmel all the time. It is the place he takes all his women. His finance left him for someone else the first of this year because his work came first.

I know for a fact that Mr. Pelzer is getting married. I used to work for a hotel in Carmel that he stays at and I met him and his fiance about a year ago. He had just proposed to her that day and had her show her ring to all of us at the front desk. I could tell that they were very much in love. Mr. Pelzer was always very nice to our staff whenever he stayed there. I wish him and his future wife a lifetime of love and happiness.
