16 of 16 people found the following review helpful By Patricia B. Sims on March 12, 2000
Format: Paperback
I first read this book in 1965 and it changed my life! It liberated me from the philosophy of that era that viewed women as chattels and property. It was, for me, a companion to Simone de Beauvoir's "The Second Sex". Thanks to your out-of-print service, I now have another copy. My original copy got away because I was so eager to share it with friends whom I knew would appreciate the wisdom of Ms. Coudert. I have not re-read it again yet, but the best advice given was, as I remember it, "You are the only person you can count on spending the rest of your life with, so be good to yourself!"

Format: Paperback
I first read Jo Coudert's fine book in the 1960s, before the onslaught of the self-help books in the 1970s. Coudert's is still one of the clearest, sanest and most easily digestible of the genre. She recounts her own painful struggle as the neglected child of a narcissistic, alcoholic mother, and the devastation it wrought in her later life. Her advice is eminently sensible, practical,--and most important, it works. If you can find it, grab it. It still ranks as one of the best. I'm willing to bet it started a lot of people on the road to healing.

I first read this book in 1982 as recommended by a therapist. I have re-read it now five times over the years. My opinion is that the writer was divinely guided to be able to capture the depth and wisdom she shared here.

12 of 13 people found the following review helpful By Patricia R. Andersen VINE VOICE on December 27, 2002
Format: Paperback
This is the only self help book that I have ever read and actually kept - and reread. Most I read and think "Oh, I can't believe that...or I can't do that". Most self books trot out a few well worn stories, tie them up neatly and tell you how to get with their system. But M's Coudert shows you, warts and all, about her life and how she managed to change it for the better.
This book will make you feel better about yourself and your life and is definitely worth the effort of finding it.

I first discovered this masterpiece 8 years ago at a bradshaw workshop. I just pulled it off the shelf and reread it. WOW! I never forgot it but it was nice to be hit with her brillant conceptulizations about being a human being. It is an inspiring piece of work.
