This book helped me see and understand the dysfunction within my family. My parents were not alcoholics but the lack of emotional support, created an environment that looked like that of alcoholics. Many people don't even realize that they may have a problem. Many therapist don't address these emotional issues in their sessions. It seems like job security in the mental health field.

What was most disappointing about Charles Whitfield’s story?
In the first parts, the author goes on and on about the history and the concepts (the leaders in the field) of the "child within." It's technical and boring. I feel like I'm reading a text book in psyche class. I want to get to the meat of it, not how it was conceptualized. I lost interest.
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Robert Feifar?
Very old school narration. If the content was interesting, I wouldn't mind it that much, but with the boring introduction, it made it hard to keep focused.

This book should never have been made into an audiobook. Its content is completely lost in translation (for me at least). It contains long lists, which the narrator just reads out monotone and this becomes increasingly annoying over time. I found myself switching off as more and more lists were read out. In the end, I lost track of the content and after 3 hours, gave up entirely. Shame really, I was looking forward to it.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
I think it was time well spent in the sense I always prefer an audiobook these days. I learnt some things for sure.
What three words best describe Robert Feifar’s voice?
I think the voice was not the best. It lacked the passion that authors themselves have. It was too advertise-like perhaps.
Any additional comments?
I've only listened to it once and will listen to it again hopefully at some point. It's been a while since i listened to it but I do remember it brought up some emotion for me.
