Overview

Posing questions such as Do your relationships tend to follow a destructive pattern? Do you feel trapped by your family’s expectations of you? and Do you feel your life is governed by envy, rivalry, and distrust?, this study posits that the first six years of a child’s upbringing are a decisive factor in determining his personality and behavior. James argues his thesis by drawing on a variety of resources, from the latest scientific research to revealing conversations with celebrity—and a few anonymous—personalities and fascinating psychobiographies of individuals such as George W. Bush, Prince Charles, and Mia Farrow. This entertaining discussion demonstrates that understanding the past is the key to taking control of the present.

Planteando preguntas como ¿Tiende usted a seguir una pauta destructiva en sus relaciones? ¿Se siente atrapado por las esperanzas que su familia depositó en usted? y ¿Le parece que su vida está gobernada por la envidia, la rivalidad o la desconfianza?, este estudio propone que los seis primeros años de la crianza de un niño condicionan decisivamente su carácter y comportamiento. James defiende su tesis manejando variados recursos, desde las más recientes investigaciones científicas a reveladoras conversaciones con personajes célebres y anónimos o interesantes psicobiografías de individuos como George W. Bush, el príncipe Carlos de Inglaterra y Mia Farrow. Esta discusión entretenida demuestra que comprender el pasado es el primer paso para tomar posesión del presente.
