I heartily recommend and approve of this book. I like the blend of common sense, sound science and practical exercises.

Rothschild's writing is accessible without being simplistic, and respectful both of the readers' sensibilities and of their resourcefulness.

As a trauma therapist and supervisor I am familiar with her professional books, especially The Body Remembers: The Psychophysiology of Trauma and Trauma Treatment (Norton Professional Books) and I am glad to have this to recommend to clients and to supervisees who are working with people affected by trauma. Both groups have been full of praise for the book.

It will be useful too to the friends and family of trauma survivors in understanding them and knowing how to help.

There is also some sensible advice for trauma survivors who are in therapy or counselling, and indeed some useful pointers for practitioners.

The associated newsletter and website looks like a useful addition.
