    A Story of Hope

    Bob Livingstone offers the reader a very personal and powerful account of his story of bereavement. His journey reflects the complexity and multi-layered aspects of a central concern of the human condition: grief. Bob's struggle is our struggle, the search for meaning, integration, and resolution of loss in our lives. Bob teaches us the importance of self-exploration and how willingness to face our own demons can eventually lead to healing. This is a story of hope.

    A Review of Redemption of the Shattered

    One of the very few thoughtful,insightful and accesible books on the subject of childhood trauma seen thru the eyes of a therapist with personal experience and the journey he guides his patient through. If you as a lay person or clinician need to read any one book this year on the inner life of trouble teenagers, this is the one.

    Finally, A Meaningful Process for Change

    Bob Livingstone has provided a multi-level experience in the writing of Redemption of the Shattered. The intensive analysis of his own journey, the objective commentary of his experience using the sand tray icons, and the very insightful suggested questions he asks at the end of each chaper, gives the reader an opportunity to integrate the material. I suggest that the book will open avenues for personal conflict resolution no matter what the age of the reader. Livingstone's odyssey helps us understand the terror and aloneness known to many of us and he does not hesitate to cast a spotlight on it. Through caring and careful thought provoking inquiry, Livingstone has provided the means of self discovery and a method for building a productive and meaningful life.

    Redemption of the Shattered:

    As the mother of two teenage girls, this book is especially insightful because it is not the usual litanies regarding what teenagers experience or how to cope with their feelings. This book embodies the actual thoughts and feelings of a real teenager. It is never `sugarcoated¿. A boy or girl can identify with Rob because he is `cool¿; he¿s hanging out, doing drugs, cigarettes dangling from his lips. A teenager would think, hey, that could be me. Rob represents 'everyman' We all experience some of these issues Rob has. How he works through them, for me is the key. If Rob the 'everyman is helped, there is hope for me.'

    A Challenging and Rewarding Story

    Redemption of the Shattered is a brave, challenging and uniquely rewarding work. Think of it as a video game where, instead of sitting safely in your room pushing buttons or pulling on a joystick, you're inside with the monsters, fighting for your life. The monsters may come from your own mind, but that doesn't make them any less real. They may attack with guilt, fear and shame, instead of with guns or blades, but they are deadly just the same. ******************* ********** I encourage anyone dealing with issues of grief, guilt, or buried pain to read this book. You may find within it a powerful healing experience. ****************** *********** Like a video game, Redemption of the Shattered plays out on different levels. To survive each level in his grief process, Rob needs to learn new skills, find new help, and discover new strengths. Each of the 24 levels brings a new treasure, too. But, like in a video game, successfully completing one level brings Rob face-to-face with old and new demons on the next level.************* ************ Having to face the same trials over and over, when you think you've beaten them, is one of the few similarities between video games and life. It would be nice if our inner demons stayed dead, but they usually don't. They have to be faced, accepted and transformed repeatedly, over time. ************ ************** Redemption shows us how to follow that long, spiraling, often frustrating path. It is not a self-help book, though, and it is not easy. It is an adventure through time, space, mind and spirit. Rob moves from teenage to adulthood and back, and is sometimes in both places at once. A large number of characters come and go, and the author leaves it to us to understand their significance. ******************* ********** The story requires us to remain flexible about time and person, and to a certain extent about grammar. It's worth the effort, though. Redemption will challenge you, but will also reward you with scenes of great beauty, a message of profound hope, and a new understanding of grief and what it takes to overcome it.
