"Leveling a steady eye on her oft-sensationalized subject, Nathan serves up a tale just as shocking as the famed original," (Publishers Weekly)

Was it all a hoax? We’ll never know.

I didn’t care for the book that much; I didn’t feel like I was uncovering an extraordinary scoop. Sure some parts were interesting, but overall it was just ok.

In a nut shell, it’s the biography of “The Real Sybil”, her overzealous doctor, and the author of the 1973 book “Sybil”.

Essentially, the doctor’s highest interest was the advancement of her own career and saw in Sybil what she wanted to see. She and the writer had dollar signs in their eyes and really getting to the bottom of Sybil’s issues was secondary to making money and achieving fame through her story.

Was it all a hoax? We’ll never know. I am certain Sybil was not in her right mind, but I’m ready to believe elements of her case were exaggerated and sensationalized.

Fascinating and educational

Very interesting book with solid research. Readers who questioned "so was it all a hoax?" after listening have missed the incredible depth and nuance of the story. I learned a lot about multiple personality disorder and gained a greater understanding of the mental health system.
