    Best book I have read all year

    Wow, what an excellent book. I could hardly put it down. At first I was not sure I was going to like it because the title seemed a bit odd to me. As if the author was trying to get people to read the book just based on shock value. But once I started it, I realized that the author knew what he was talking about and the stories are just remarkable. I would especially recommend this book if you work with children, are interested in psychology at all, or have ever been in contact with someone who has suffered from trauma. There is a lot of good information in this book and I learned a lot, but it was also pure pleasure to read.

    Definitely summarizes own experiences with child trauma

    Over the last year I have came to highly respect Dr. Perry's research and work with traumatized children. His work has become a resource for my husband and I, as we have an adopted child who could be the poster child for severe trauma that happens to a child before he/she can can even talk. Not only does his book describe specific cases he has worked with, it also details the specific elements of how severe trauma can literally damage the ability of a developing brain to function as we in our society would describe as 'normal.' A very good read, especially if you work with, know of, or have children who have suffered from severe trauma. In light of recent news events involving the Mormon polygamist group and the children who have been taken from this compound, I particularly appreciate Dr. Perry's honesty regarding the treatment of the children survivors of the Branch Davidian cult in Waco.

    Great read!

    For all the scientific/medical and psychological information in this book, it reads fast! You feel a part of each situation documented by Dr. Perry. A must-read for foster and adoptive parents!

    Powerful and cutting edge...

    Have heard Bruce Perry speak and his book is just as powerful and eloquent as he is in person. Imperative read for professionals and easy to understand for the lay person. Every story touches the heart.

    Great book about children with rough pasts who with a little help end up leading normal lives.

    This is a great book for individuals who work with children with emotional problems or who have been neglected in the past. It is heart warming because most of the children in this book are able to rise above and they lead normal lives.

    Read this book.

    I have attended trainings on children and trauma, taken classes on child development, etc., and none of those experiences compared to the insight I gained from this book. The subject matter wasn't necessarily new to me, but Perry masterfully wove together his experience working with children impacted by trauma/abuse/neglect, with information on neuropsychology, sociology, evidence-based therapies, and more.

    If you work with children, if you yourself are a survivor of childhood/adolescent trauma, if you are a parent who wants to understand your child's developmental needs, you should read this book. The client stories will stay with you, as will the knowledge of child development and trauma. Our society would be better off if everyone READS THIS BOOK!

    Awesome book!

    This was an easy read and really opens the eyes to see more clearly through a psychiatrist work. This is a bunch of his case studies and what he discovered that helps.

    It was pretty good

    If youre purely interested in the stories be warned that most of it is about his therapuatic approach and psychiatric practices
