This book is a very tough but very enlightening read. Anyone who suffers from PTSD, particularly developmental trauma, or loves someone who does should read this book. (And if you suffer from developmental trauma you should love yourself but probably have a hard time with that. Reading this will help.)

This book has been a tremendous help to me in understanding PTSD and why I sometimes react the way I do. What is especially helpful is the personal aspect of this book on the part of the author. Anyone who suffers from PTSD should read this book.

Review by: Shirley Holt on April 28, 2012 :
I really "enjoyed" reading this book.
"Enjoyed" seems a word that should not be associated with a book on PTSD but l do not feel quite so alone.
It is not an easy subject to admit the need to read a book on.
I am thankful for finding out about it and reading it.
Well worth the read.
