What the Critics Say

"Analyzing her parents' damaged childhoods, Bloland eventually understands why they were such poor parents, and why they turned to professional success for their fulfillment. Anyone interested in the problems of fame will find Bloland's memoir useful." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Understanding more of Erikson"

    I really liked listening to Ericksons daughters perspective as it helps us understand Erikson more from another angle as well as the reasons why people may become psychoanalysists
