" Great book! It really helped me realize a lot about myself and what to do in the beginning stages to live a normal and healthy life. It is a quick read, and very well worth it! " said.

" this book gives hope and inspiration to overcome the pain of child abuse and its shadow on ones life. " said.

" I return to this book often in my life. It is a gentle and powerful way to work on healing around childhood abuse. I would recommend this book for anyone who struggles with past trauma. " said.

" A great book for clients who were abused as children. A little outdated, but still totally relevant. Uses simple language and is short and easy to read. " said.

" Good book with which to begin the healing process. It's brief enough to not overwhelm. I would use it with clients. " said.

" Eliana describes the effect trauma & abuse can have on individuals and helpfully breaks it down into every day language. I like that its an easy short read and would recommend it to individuals seeking more information on the topic of trauma & abuse or for anyone in the helping professions. " said.

"This is a good little book for individuals to read who have endured abuse as a child, however, it in no way explores the topic in depth. As a counselor, I would recommend this to adults who are unsure if what they suffered as a child was abuse, as well as those adults who have identified that abuse indeed occurred, but are suffering from various reactions to the abuse/neglect. While this text in NO WAY takes the place of seeing a professional counselor, I believe it might bring many individuals a certain level of comfort. Gil explores a multitude of reactions to abuse while also helping the "client" determine possible avenues to healing.

" said.

" A must read!This book helps validate, further explain and define abuse and it's impact. Whether you are just starting the journal of healing or have been on that road a long time, you will find the topics thoughtful, brief and insightful. I personally found it to be a great way to provoke more internal dialogue on my own healing process and my husband felt it gave him some insight into my life-long struggle. " said.
