Reviews of Growing Up In The Orgone Box: Secrets of a Reichian Childhood by Malcolm J. Brenner

Reading this book has inspired me to "live well". I also come from a home very similar to Mr. Brenner's, verbally abused as well as being molested. So thank you Mr. Brenner for sharing these traumatic events in your life. I hope others who were molested find your book as helpful as it did me.

An insightful, sometimes disturbing read on the "orgone therapy" pseudoscience and the abuse of power by some of its practitioners. Brenner's experience shows the darker side of 1950s Americana.
