From Publishers Weekly
Psychotherapist Cori (The Tao of Contemplation: Re-Sourcing the Inner Life) translates the dark language of trauma in this primer of agony and recovery, with a deep understanding of the tortuous journey many suffer after sexual assault, war, violence and childhood abuse. Skillfully, she avoids the bevy of usual tales of misery found in self-help books on trauma, focusing instead on the resilience of the spirit, regaining control and resuming a renewed life. Very timely and informative, Cori's guidebook includes a long segment on PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder), recognizing the emotional and moral conflicts faced by troops returning from Iraq and Afghanistan and attempting to reintegrate into society. The author offers solid information on types of trauma disorders and stresses the importance of selecting caring, sensitive health practitioners and therapists as critical to speed the healing quest (she offers sensible specifics on choosing a therapist). Concluding with her own story as an incest survivor (based on recovered memories), the book is a compact, knowing work of atonement, grace, compassion and healing. (Nov.)

"A book that victims of complex life trauma can use a mirror for their own life experience, to understand the meaning of their chaotic inner life without being traumatized by its contents, and to assimilate the message of hope, healing, and transformation."

THIS BOOK HAS NO TRAUMATIC STORIES.
It is an intelligent, insightful, informative way to help those who are dealing with trauma learn about it and help themselves move on. The content is written in such a way that it is easy to stop without becoming overwhelmed, so for that I'd give it a big thumbs up.
The only reason I was considering giving it four stars instead of five is that some of the chapter topics are skimmed over so briefly they can be difficult to understand without further research and re-reading several times. If you're reading with your therapist (mine bought the book to read it together) that helps alleviate a lot of the confusion, so I'd definitely recommend that if you can do it.
This is the only book on trauma that has often left me with a smile on my face when I closed it instead of a frown, so that is a huge feat when dealing with something as terrifying as trauma!
