Reviews and Endorsements

'Many readers will be shocked by this unique record of pain and shame, while it will also inspire awe for those who were brave enough to share their stories. It will be a privilege for the uninitiated to read and should enlighten therapists beginning to engage with the normalised mental-health problems resulting from how the British educate their elites.' - Nick Duffell, author of The Making of Them and Wounded Leaders.

'Each of the contributions to this book gives a vivid sense of the lasting distress borne by children who experienced early boarding. These tales offer a nuanced picture of an intergenerational scandal; a portrait of neglect and abuse of children across the world, all in the name of privileged education.' - Professor Joy Schaverien, author of Boarding School Syndrome: The Psychological Trauma of the 'Privileged' Child.

'These stories vividly portray the deep wounding that the boarding school experience has on children. There are common themes of bewilderment at leaving home and the difficulties of living, without love, in an institution. They describe ways in which boarding school has impacted on their adult lives, the sense they have made of their experiences and about their inability to trust, feel safe with others and love another... even those closest to them.' - Darrel Hunneybell, Psychotherapist and leader of Men's Boarding School Survivors Workshops.
