Whitney Houston's powerful voice made her one of the greatest musical geniuses of our generation. Yet even while she attained a level of triumphant success that surpassed all other musical stars, she descended into the pits of an internal hell that finally took her life. While her descent was fueled by drugs and supported by a destructive marriage, the true cause of her death has never been revealed before now.
Beginning with early childhood and tracing her life and career, What Really Killed Whitney Houston (JayEss Publishing) by husband and wife psychology team Judith Sherven, PhD and Jim Sniechowski, PhD examines her life and death through the lens of her unconscious loyalties and explains how these loyalties deprived her of being able to embrace and live inside her success.
Best-selling authors, relationship experts, and sought-after keynote speakers Judith & Jim (as they are best known) specialize in 'The Fear of Being Fabulous' and in their latest book What Really Killed Whitney Houston they compassionately reveal the depth of Whitney's internal hell and what ultimately cost her her life.
It would seem that being one of the world's best-selling music artists, having sold over 170 million albums, singles, and videos worldwide, and being cited by the Guinness World Records as the most-awarded female act of all time, Whitney would have felt very secure about who she was. Unfortunately, the extreme pressure put on celebrities took both an emotional and physical toll on Whitney. While outwardly, she showed the world a beautiful woman with a voice like an angel - inside she was dealing with her own set of demons.
Judging by the rave reviews, all of us can learn from this book and gain freedom from our fears and issues. Art Klein, best-selling Book of the Month Club Author and former V.P. of Marketing for The New York Times Corporation, summed it up by saying: "This is the most important book ever written about the most important subject facing every aware human being: how to fulfill your magnificence and not succumb to lethal unconscious allegiances. This is a book about the deepest personal freedom possible. Nothing matters more."
What Really Killed Whitney Houston is the sixth book by relationship experts Judith & Jim, whose first five books are already best-sellers. They have accurately discovered the core issue that holds people back from the success they desire and the solutions outlined in their book are evolutionary and enlightening.
Judith & Jim are sought after executive coaches for many major corporations nationwide and internationally, and as guest experts they have appeared on over 2700 television and radio shows including Oprah, The View, 48 Hours, Canada AM, MSNBC and CNN as well as being interviewed for and published by many high profile magazines and newspapers.
The authors created a book you want to devour and finish right away! Because now we know what really happened for Whitney! Thank you, Judith & Jim!

This book is an instructive interpretation of how our unconscious allegiance to subtle messages from our childhood can interfere with our achieving our deserved dreams. What Really Killed Whitney Houston is a window into our unconscious and self-destructive behaviors with Whitney being the main character. This insightful book is an investigative, cautionary tale you will not be able to put down. It is psychologically brilliant!

Judith Sherven, Ph.D. and Jim Sniechowski, Ph.D. have written a succinct and powerful analysis of what drove one of the most talented singers and entertainers of all-time into a self-destructive life-style and eventually to an early death. Drawing upon their decades of experience in psychology they piece together the strands of Houston’s life and most importantly, the early experiences that she was never able to overcome that drove her to destroy an incredible talent. Relating the tragedy of Houston’s life to all of us makes this a valuable read for anyone who wishes to have a greater understanding of how their own life was influenced by, and may be governed from, unconscious forces that they cannot control. Judith and Jim give depth and perspective to a tragic life all too many have provided only surface analysis and solutions too.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
