I read this book 32 years ago and it literally saved my life. I had gone through such a terrible psychological trauma that I just couldn't get over it. I had been suicidal for months and the psychiatrists I put my thrust into just made the whole thing grow worse and worse. I finally left this big city hospital and its lousy staff and went back to my hometown, but with little hope of ever going any better. If I had to die, I wanted to do it at home, I told myself.
Then I fell on this book by accident. Sheer luck, I would say. It was right on target. It gave a name to my misery and a way out of it.
I still have it - as a memento, and also as a useful tool to pass on if I ever meet some poor soul stuck in the same hellish nightmare I knew once.
If you ever know somebody suffering from such a plight and feeling totally helpless about it, please, give this person a chance with this book. That may make a difference between life or death.
