I was the victim of abuse from the ages of 8 to 13. There is not even one present day friend of mine who knows this. Only my family. I have had counseling, and have read various books to heal some wounds that still need healing. Now in my thirties, things are finally getting better. Bad Childhood - Good Life is a book worth reading, and offered some helpful advice. But... In hopes of helping some others who, for one reason or another need help in getting past the past, I am sharing the best book I've read in two years. I 'gambled' last month and purchased a book from a new author. I must say it has helped me more than any of the others. Passengers Side, by John Michael Forosisky. Chapter 11 is called 'letting go'. Something I needed to do. This book showed me how to do it. So buy both, but I think you'll get more from the latter. I've already emailed the author to thank him. But I thought the least I could do would be to give him a plug here, and hopefully help others like me (who may read this) that need an amazing book like Passenger's Side, to help them.

This book was exactly what I needed right now this moment in my life. Actually, I could have used it a decade or two ago! I have been at a crossroads for most of my adult life and I am 44-years-old now...I'm not sure why I couldn't just let go of my childhood and move on. I just want what we all want - to be happy. This book tells about many different people and how Dr. Laura helped them to become aware of their choices. That is what it all boils down to - choices - and making the right ones for yourself. I could relate to so much in this book. It truly changed my life and is allowing me to finally let go of my past and say good-bye to my family - something I have needed to do my whole life. I am buying this book for my brother and also my adult daughter, so she can better understand why I am doing what I am doing. I may even buy one for mother dearest.

I saw Dr. Laura on Sean Hannity and from his remarks to her and her reaction and responses, I thought this book was more about her. I love to hear her, but this book is a compilation of 'phone calls' and therapy sessions about other people's problems and her guiding wisdom. I was disappointed that only the last chapter - a few pages - was a brief analysis of her relationship with her parents.

This is a so-so book. I think Dr. Laura is way too preachy without showing why. I do not think this is her best book. I bought it for my Mom and then read it and thought 'now that was a waste of money'. I do not believe it contains anything pithy at all. Reactions are not meaningful unless backed up by truths.
