There's a Reason for the High Ratings
- By Paul F. on 03-17-15
As a trauma survivor this book completely embodies my life's experience. This is a title I want to experience again, as it is so rich with insight. For the first time ever I feel validated. I finally have words to describe how I felt then and feel now. I believe that the treatments described in this book will be a turning point in my life.
