Such a sad story. It has taken her years to recover ... July 9 2014
By Susan Short - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A friend (and her family) were traumatized by a well meaning (I guess) therapist who convinced her that her depression stemmed from being satanically abused as a child. Such a sad story. It has taken her years to recover from those fraudulent "recovered memories” that he encouraged, perhaps placed, in her psyche.

Excellent Scientific Approach To Memory And False Memory Syndrome Nov. 4 2012
By Douglas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The author notes near the end of the book that "serious scientific research rarely makes it into the public consciousness." How sadly true. It is much easier to read pseudo-science "self help" tripe and let some self-proclaimed therapist (mind-rapist?) brainwash you into what you remember than it is to actually read a scientifically based book on memory like this one. Remembering Our Childhood shows how our memories work, and often don't work, and gives us much better ideas about when to trust them and when to doubt.

dull and very dated Feb. 1 2013
By Anonymous - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
this book starts with an obvious bias rather than looking at the topic opening

also many recent scientific research has been shown to demonstrate the *traumatic* memories cannot be falsely remembered and are often repressed as a coping mechanism, all this is ignored in the book - really the author needs to start again since he has ignored nearly all post-2000 research
