  • Some really interesting insights and some of the exercises are really good. I think it would have been nice if the author had spent a little time actually defining what an "Adult Child" is (since it's assumed at the beginning you know what the term means). A good reference. It's a shame that, since the book is so old, many of the books he recommends are out of print, though.


  • This book is a good place to start understanding the experience of being an adult child. I was recently diagnosed with PTSD due to an abusive mother, and I found this book helpful in recognizing the behaviors that result from that and how to start addressing them. That said, I would not say that the book is enough. Some time of therapy is definitely called for if you recognize yourself in these pages.


  • Considering this was originally published in the 1980s, it holds up VERY well as a modern read. I was especially heartened to see the inclusion of same-sex couples in the case studies. I also really like that the focus of the book is on emotional abuse, although physical / sexual / neglect are also covered. It seems so often emotional abuse gets overlooked for narratives that are more titillating, but that's not the case here. The book strives to be actually helpful rather than shocking.At times [...]


  • I actually didn't finish this book because I finished 8 or 9 other books about parental abuse and neglect in last 19 or so months. It wasn't bad so I didn't finish it. It was more like I read this 8 or 9 times already and I'm try to find something new, but there's nothing new. It's more like compilation of those other books, except this is the oldest book. So I should have read this one first.


  • Very good book! Informative and hits very close to those who've been abused. It certainly made me think a lot about the things that happened in my own home while growing up. I highly recommend this book to those who are ready to start the healing process.Now I need to go through the exercises, which can take months to years.


  • To this day this book has a significant impact on how I can most effectively cope with my parents and the shortcomings I had to deal with in my upbringing. If you grew up in a dysfunctional home, you will treasure the wisdom this has to share. I wish I had discovered it in my teens!


  • I gave this book a second try this year. First part is very good. The other I skimmed through because I did some of those exercises before in different order as I read other books. I should read this one first but at that time I wouldn't call what happened an abuse. Today I would.
