This book changed my life in the most profound ways that any book has ever affected me. It brought insight, understanding, kindness, consideration and an array of empathic feelings that I had never experienced previously. In short, it assisted me to finally come out of denial about how challenging it actually was to grow up in a home of dysfunction. One of the symptoms of growing up in this type of a home is we come to minimize our own feelings which becomes an ever increasing dysfunction as we walk thru the journey of life. This dysfunction puts us at a disadvantage in careers, relationships, family and friends. What makes it even more insidious is we don't even know we are at a disadvantage so we continually blame ourselves for the outcomes.

As I read this book I was in constant denial about it being my reality until I read the description of a reoccurring nightmare in the book that was a nightmare I continually had as a child. I had never shared this nightmare with anyone. That is when I realized I had work to do because someone was actually telling me 1} my own nightmare, 2} why I was having the nightmare and 3} what do do about it. This book changed my life!

This is a book that many buyers probably are reluctant to discuss after purchasing. But it's been around so long that its title is in the vernacular, and it's spawned many spinoffs, so when I saw a need for it, I ordered it. Someone extremely close to me has a father-in-law who's a destructive, falling-down alcoholic, and that means he poisons her marriage and family life with her child. Ideally, her husband would be the reader. But she, too, can profit from the text, armed with understanding and strategies. And the book not only will not go away, it will lie on the bedside table with its unequivocal title. "This is what you are. Your name is legion." A wonderful gift.
