Survivors JUST read it. Be not ashamed.
31 May 2015
This is a very important book as is ND's desire to see survivors recover as depicted on his website. As he wrote it there was very little literature on the subject. However as someone who clearly failed to cope both as a colonial misfit and a boarding school receiver of multiple physical, emotional and sexual abuse over several years, I can confirm the dire times allowed and hallowed by many. One critic has suggested that troubled survivors are somehow pathetic. He or she is most likely to have been on top of the pile of manure and found it suited him. However my only criticism of the book is that it has been a platform for ND's fierce antiestablishment ideology. Salty that detracts from the power of the message.
