Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
While this might make a list of recommended books, it would not be among the first on the list.
Would you be willing to try another book from Beverly Engel? Why or why not?
I believe the content is sound, and based on years of training and experience. I have no doubt that what is presented is accurate and has insight.
Would you be willing to try another one of Vanessa Hart’s performances?
I might. The material in this book is somewhat dry. Ms. Hart's voice is sometimes too soothing - I wouldn't recommend this book while driving!
Do you think Healing Your Emotional Self needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
Perhaps, but it was the wrong book for my particular needs.
Any additional comments?
This book assumes a person has problems with that stem from bad parenting. In listening to it, I found myself being thankful for my parents who were not abusive, inattentive, manipulative, narcissistic, hyper-critical, etc.
If that is your story, then I believe this book to be quite useful (and I wish you a succesful journey from such a dark place). If you have feelings of inadequacy that are not directly related to your relationship with your parents, this is NOT the book for you.

Would you listen to Healing Your Emotional Self again? Why?
Absolutely! I think you need to listen more than once as there is so much "work" to do with each chapter, internal reflection. Loved all the examples the author brought into the story telling.
What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?
That parental abuse comes in many forms. I'd typically thought of abuse as physical, sexual or of neglectful parent ... hadn't really thought of critical, rejecting or emotional absentee parent would fall in that category.
Any additional comments?
At times I found hard to listen to as it brought up feelings I hadn't realized I'd been harbouring. But by the end of the book I felt I had my eyes opened and look forward to working on the exercises the author has at the end of each chapter.

The book itself may be good--I don't know yet--but this performance/recording is depressing to listen.
