This book is very helpful for anyone wanting to understand and change maladaptive thoughts and behavior caused by developmental trauma. I have read hundreds of healing books over the past 20 years and this one is unique. I highly recommend it.

I found the developmental information very helpful and informative, in terms of thinking about how attachment styles develop and how people develop their presentation, communication and coping styles.
I especially found it interesting and enlightening to learn about addressing trauma not only from the cognitive but also in the body and the nervous system, where the "bottom up" is addressed and not just "top down".
However, it was heavy going a lot of the time and the narration felt monotonous and not very engaging.
It took a lot of discipline to listen to, and probably a lot of drifting off occurred.
I think this audiobook is probably more useful to academics who have a specific interest in this area, maybe from a clinical practice or medical perspective.
I'm not sure whether it suits those who are just looking for accessible information about trauma in general and how to/they can address it.

Thorough and available information, the study and cases are in type. Work that was well referenced and suitably aimed at higher educated readers but not restricted to professions in psychology.
