More About the Author

I am a child and adult psychiatrist with private practices in Sudbury, Mass as well as on the upper west side in New York City. Both practices operate under the name The Hallowell Center, where we offer diagnosis and a range of treatments for ADHD and learning problems in children and adults. I also am a writer and a speaker. I am married to Sue Hallowell, a social worker and a therapist. We have been married for 24 years and have 3 children, Lucy, now 23, Jack, 20, and Tucker, 17 (as of April, 2013).
The major theme that runs through all my work is the magical power of the human connection, and the power of positive connections of all kinds. I also specialize in learning differences and have written books about how to deal best with attention deficit disorder, a condition that I regard as a potential gift, if it handled correctly. Having both ADHD and dyslexia myself, I am particularly qualified to help people with these conditions bring out their best

I find it surprising that no one has reviewed this book yet.

I picked this up while I was on vacation, and of course I had numerous past wrongs that were stewing in the back of my mind (as we all do).

This book is down to earth and written in an easy style. I thought I could never forgive some people that had wronged me "based on principle" and that I was not "a forgiving person". This book really helped me to think about my anger in a new way and gave good reasons for forgiving (continuing to be angry only hurts your life).

This book is interwoven with lots of personal stories (including the authors) which I found really helpful. I highly recommend this book!

"Dare to Forgive" is a healing book. It shares real stories of business people who were falsely accused, blamed for things that weren't their fault, political candidates whose words were miscontrued, plus incest and rape survivors, and other real life examples.

When you read this book, you quickly realize that you're not alone. Many people are innocent victims who did nothing to deserve the wrongs against them. As you read this book, you feel angry, but you'll also laugh until your face is red. You'll be drawn in, and want to keep reading until the very last page. Honestly, this book is a masterpiece, worth far more than the cover price or what you pay for it.

Dr. Halliwell is a Harvard-educated psychiatrist, but he develops his concept of forgiveness from unlikely sources, like taxi cab drivers. One of Dr. Halliwell's personal stories is about losing a parking place to a BMW, and getting so angry that he jumped on top of the car and pounded his fists until they moved. There is a wide spectrum of emotions and experiences in this book-- lots of surprises, jolts, twists and turns.

One my favorite parts of the book was Dr Halliwell's story about Josselyn, his cousin. Evidently, Dr Halliwell was once so angry with her that he vowed never to speak to her again. He also revisits the house that he grew up in, where he had been physically abused, and makes peace with his past. "Dare to Forgive" reveals a strategy for forgiveness, but its the personal stories that brings the message home. It takes courage to forgive, and this book will help you find that strength to let go and move on with your life. Highly recommended, rewarding and satisfying, 5 stars book.

I've only just started this book, so I can't in all fairness give it a 5 until I finish! However, I can already tell that "Dare to Forgive" will occupy a high place on my favorites list along with all of Ned's other books.I feel like I can call him Ned after reading so many of his books -- I feel like he's an old friend. That's the best part of his books -- his style is so engaging, he really leaves you feel like an old friend is talking to you, giving advice from the heart. If you need to learn to forgive someone, or yourself, and want gentle, friendly guidance, this is the book for you.

This book can help evolve the hardened heart. Chapters include Hallowell's client stories and general advice. I would recommend reading only the chapter designed to cope with your specific "need to forgive."

Outstanding read! A must for anyone who has ever suffered a trauma, or simply struggles with the everyday challenges of living and learning to mentally release and let go of things they can't control, to include the hurtful, harmful, often unwitting behaviors of other people. Forgive them, for "they know not what they do", even though it may seem quite the opposite. Forgive yourself for not being whatever it is you got programmed from childhood to think "you weren't enough of" for this or that person, or got programmed to think others owe you or are "supposed to be" like in order to be acceptable in society. Letting go and loving yourself, accepting the gift of forgiveness for yourself, not because these others necessarily "deserve" forgiveness, but because YOU deserve it so you can reclaim your own well-being and peace of mind. I got a lot from this book. Working to apply the principles in it to my thought life.

I can't say enough about this book, Dare to Forgive. For two years I have struggled with forgiveness of my now-deceased father and my younger sister. What is most frustrating is I have tried to talk to my sister and ask for her support (on the telephone) and she seems to be a million miles away and gives me nothing. She will not talk to me, except to say in a little girl voice......"I just don't know what to say".

Now I must forgive and move on. Dr. Hallowell's book is the best I've seen on the subject. It does the best job in showing the reader just what a burden hanging on to the hurts can do - the real damage it inflicts. I want the power back in my life to enjoy what I have. Dare to Forgive is showing me page by page it is the one thing I can control in the heartache.

I am presently teaching a Bible class using this book as the foundation. The class members have told me that this book has been a great help in their search for the meaning of forgiveness and how to incorporate forgiveness in their daily lives. The book is well written. Each chapter has meaningful stories that anyone can relate to. Highly recommend this to anyone who is searching for a way to forgive themselves or others.
