This book was life changing for me. I could understand and start to heal many of my emotional wounds from my childhood. I had to pause and think and write many times for hours during listening this audiobook(currently listening for the second time) Eye opening. If you had or have hard times with your parents, I strongly recommend this book. Also as a parent you can listen to this book to know how deep you effect your children emotions.

Book is good, but the narrator is nowhere near relaxed enough. She speaks as though she’s trying to instil fear or suspense in the book. This is a SELF HELP book, not a novel. You need to speak calmly and compassionately. Stopped listening half way through.

Good book, but it overwhelmingly focuses on what an emotionally immature parent is and why they're like that and how to handle that, rather than the last chapter where identifying and having mature relationships with mature people was covered. I wish it covered that more, along with some guidance on how to otherwise fulfill the deep loneliness form emotional neglect that is acknowledged. It's also noteworthy that this book is more geared towards those dealing with emotional neglect from non-sadistic parents who may want to continue functional interactions with them, or those looking to weed out traits and wounds left by their parents in themselves and to put those into words. While I personally felt validated, I felt largely unguided as to how to soothe this pain (outside of some passing notes about nature, art, and religion) and how to find myself fulfilling relationships and a support network (outside of a brief chapter covering everything from traits of a mature person to how fulfilling it can feel to be with one to how to be a mature person).
