Format: Paperback
This is a collection of writing from 132 individuals, most of whom are multiples. Cohen (an art therapist) combined efforts with Lynn (editor/publisher of Many Voices), an Giller (director of The Sidran Foundation). Four questions were asked in a survey to subscribers of Lyn's work. The reoccurring themes were trust, control, and boundary-setting. They write that the book's audience "... may find here the wisdom of a collective voice, and structures upon which to build alliances."
This book was an important book at the time it was published and has remained so over the years. It was one of the first of its kind. At the time, Many Voices had 2,300 subscribers. There was a need for people to "come together." The questions asked of the multiples in 1990 were, "What do you wish you had known about MPD when you were first diagnosed? What would you like therapists to know about the experience of MPD? and, What do you think spouses, friends, and/or supportive family members should know about MPD?" Then, the significant others were asked to share their thoughts.
I remember how important this book was to me at the time. I had been diagnosed with MPD in January of 1990, and we had found this copy in 1992. I felt relief at hearing from a variety of multiples who were facing the same kind of experiences we were having. Some of my feelings were the same as them, some different. It was ok to feel about it as you may. I didn't realize at the time that there were other multiples that would try and maybe never find the right therapist, or that the therapy I was receiving was somewhat unique and very good. My therapist was very stable and practiced in his field and open minded.

Format: Paperback
When I read this book, it was like a lightning from the
clear skies. It explained so many things about myself,
others, and consciousness in general. Also, it told me
so much about how much abuse there is in the world, and
how much prejudice there is against people who are different
from some narrowly accepted norms. If one reads this book
with the heart, it can teach so incredibly much about love
and compassion which are so lacking in our world. I recommend
this book to anyone, whether MPD or not MPD.

Format: Paperback
This book was incredible. I wish I had read it when I was first diagnosed with the disorder, but I was well on my way into integration by the time I found it. Even still, it was helpful because I was able to see that others were feeling the same exact things I had felt and was still feeling. It validated my thoughts and feelings about every aspect of the disorder. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has been diagnosed with MPD, their therapists, their significant others and anyone else who knows someone with MPD and wants to understand what is happening to them.

Format: Paperback
As someone who has DID/MPD, this is the best overall book I have read. It gives the perspective on MPD from those that know best, the people who have it. Being diagnosed with DID (the new name) is trauma in itself, let alone reading all the mis-information out there, and hearing the sensationalism. This book was like reading about myself. It validated my feelings and helped me not feel so alone and afraid. I still refer to parts of it for inspiration, information, and acknowledgment that I'm not crazy. I had my husband read the book, my therapist has read it, and anyone in my life that wants to be supportive also gets a copy. I am well on the road to recovery now, and I can truly say that this book helped me along the way.

Format: Paperback
I personally think this is a wonderful book :) It's a collection of
writing from 146 multiples and some of their significant others; lots
of prose, some poetry and a little art.

The writing was sent in as a response to a questionnaire distributed
to readers of <CITE>Many Voices</CITE> and members of ISSMP&D (now
ISSD). It contained three open questions for multiples, and one for
SOs. The multiple were asked what they wish they had known when they
were first diagnosed, and what the would like therapists and SOs to
know about MPD. SOs were asked what they would like to share with
other friends and SOs of multiples.

From these questions there is is a huge range of responses. From people
talking about the terror, or relief of their diagnosis as MP, to
guidelines to prevent abuse in therapy, and for health workers dealing
with multiples in the emergency room. It is this breadth that makes
the book so valuable to me, I can go to it just wanting companionship
in my fears, or looking for inspiration, or to help me find a solution
to a problem in our inside work.

The book is divided into nine chapters; the first seven deal with the
course of therapy (Diagnosis, Pain, Skeptics, Therapy Successes,
Therapy Disappointments, Hope, Unification). The last two are about
relationships, one (Families and Friends) talking about what the
multiple wants from their relationships, the other (Other's Voices) a
collection of writing by the SOs themselves, these are authored by
many people, including a son, a daughter, a mother, spouses, partners
and friends.
