I gave this book five stars, because any book which causes an individual to reexamine their theoretical orientation/mode of conducting therapy, should definitely be sitting on their bookshelf at home.
Abuse survivors tread carefully.
Some people find the book immensely helpful and read it like a person stuck in the desert being offered a glass of water.
Others find it too technical and not as helpful.
Some find it too triggering to read; the stories themselves, while helpful, are too graphic for some people.
Survivors use good judgement and read in small pieces.
