From Publishers Weekly
Lloyd James delivers a powerful, honest and compassionate reading of Dr. Baer's emotional experiences treating a highly unstable woman with 17 different personalities. Told from Baer's perspective, the gripping accounts are brought to life in a remarkably understated reading by James that showcases his inherent performance ability. With a soft, almost unnoticeable change in tone, James perfectly captures patient Karen Overhill's loneliness and heartache. His voice is firm and unwavering, creating a poignant experience for the listeners, who will immediately find themselves entrenched in the powerful story. The story could easily have been overdone in narration, with the abundance of personas that enter the picture; however, James remains true to Baer's written word, underplaying the roles and letting the story speak for itself. An incredibly personal account that will have listeners feeling like a fly on the wall inside Baer's office.

"An important and insightful look into the world of a multiple."
--Cameron West, bestselling author of FIRST PERSON PLURAL
“This is Dr. Baer’s incredibly moving and inspiring account of how his patient, Karen, drove herself to heal psychic wounds that surely would have devastated someone less resolute. Particularly fascinating is how Baer, despite frequently feeling overwhelmed, guided Karen to a place where she could risk knowing — and exploring — the horrors lurking in her elaborate inner world. Throughout the book, one marvels at this caring therapist and his immense honesty, courage and commitment.”
--Dena Rosenbloom, Ph.D., co-author of LIFE AFTER TRAUMA
“SWITCHING TIME takes the reader on an absorbing journey through a psychiatrist’s dauntingly challenging first case of multiple personality disorder -- from the beginning of therapy to stable integration and recovery. Vivid...loaded with fascinating details...a richly rewarding read."
-- Colin Ross, author of MULTIPLE PERSONALITY ORDER and THE OSIRIS COMPLEX

A few times the book got overwhelming for me as I was very afraid for Karen, but, I was so invested in her that I had to finish the book. Read this book. You won’t regret it.
