John Bradshaw's "Family", "Healing the Shame that Binds You" and "Homecoming" changed my life. The first showed me where I came from and how I got to be the way I was. It gave me understanding, and the knowledge that I wasn't crazy and hopeless. I was taught to be that way.
The second book helped me to identify the specific ways it all happened, to remember it, and then it gave me hope that I could unlearn it all and be retrained. I could learn ways to change things to make things better.
The third book gave me direction, and tools to correct my behaviors and dysfunctional behaviors, and the ability to change my life. To really heal, without fear.
Now years later, I am happy and doing very well.
I whole-heartedly recommend these three books to anyone that is having any relationship problems or childhood issues, any type of addiction or codependent issues, feelings of inadequacy, insecurity or loss of self esteem.
In these books, there is knowledge that will heal you, there is hope to change, there is courage to gain and there is a better life.
My gratitude to you, Mr. John Bradshaw!

If you are tired of going around in circles with addictions, self conflicts and other things that have developed from your childhood.... this book is for you. John Bradshaw shows us how we have come to be in the place we are in at this stage of life. He shows how to stop the cycles of repeating the same negative things over and over. He shows how we all played a roll in the family and where we might have been in that roll. Why we are alcholics.. care takers... over achivers... or other addictions in life. He helps us to tune into that small self that still remains in us... even as adults. His technic of using the inner child to write with the non-perdominate hand is something unique in it's nature. He takes us from toddler stage thru to the self we are today. This book covers all kinds of things that have happened to many in life... like abandonment issues... children of alcholics and the roll each individual plays... the sexually abused... and many other issues that many of us have today. If you are wanting to stop the cycle and live a more productive and positive way? If you are willing to work at seeing how and why you came to be where you are now? Then this book is for you. It is of a greater benifit to have a counsler. Hoping this books helps all as much as it has helped me! Many wishes of campassion and happiness to all!

The 1,000 word limit for this review does not allow enough space to say all that I would say about this book, and more particularly, what it did for me, and could do for you.
There really is a Wonder Child in all of us. The more damaged we are, the more opportunity for the magnitude of the emerging of that Wonder Child in reading and embracing this book. For years, in fact all of my adolescent and young adult life, I knew something was not right, I just could not put my finger on it. I wondered why I would "act up" in professional environments and "lose it" just on the edge of success. This book answered all those questions and guided me to restoration of my "self".
John brings home the essence of what we need as toddlers and adolescents. He spells it out simply as Love, Guidance, and Permission along with a few other very fundamental needs of children. He makes it very clear as to the damage caused by emotional and physical abuse, over-protection, under-guidance, abandonment and other acts that parents do not even realise are occurring. The realization of these as issues, and the guidance to work these age-old and often subconsciously buried issues to closure, is the key to ones "self".
With all due respect to other reviewers, this is a book that can not simply be read. It must be practiced and lived. Having gone to several seminars and workshops of John Bradshaws', I slowly saw the Wonder Child emerge. Since reading this book and doing the work for a year (don't get me wrong it does not end there) I have gone from 20 years as a white collar worker in my career, being constrained by dysfunctions, to a top consultant in my field. Only because of this book and the discoveries that it led me to in order to free my "self".

If you have suffered from a difficult childhood, especially one which included an alcoholic, this book is a must read. Because he lived the life himself, John Bradshaw brings empathy to the task in buckets. The tests require honesty about yourself, but if you find that you fit the "wounded child" profile, this book will absolutely help you get out of the rut of recrimination that has dogged you most of your life. Perhaps the best part about his method is that it is relatively simple and you do it yourself. There are no expensive psychological or psychiatric tests, appointments, etc. I was so impressed that I bought the book for my brother and sister. And now, my sister and I are going to attend a Bradshaw lecture on a slightly different, but related, topic.

I'm giving credit here, but I'm not sure whether or not it's for Mr. B's writings, or his personal appearances. I've been privy to both. At any rate, he, along with Louise Hay, saved my life. Were it not for their books, their wonderful warmth and caring, and their testaments, I simply wouldn't be here. Both authors deal with the inner child and his/her healing. It's a subject that's not covered much, especially in books outside the "self help" catagories, but there are a few (think Conroy's Prince of Tides or McCrae's Bark of the Dogwood). At any rate, Homecoming is wonderful and if you read anything, read this and "You Can Heal your life" by Hay. God bless.
