"A provactive critique of traditional therapy's view of childhood . . . This is explosive stuff. I can't imagine anyone coming away from this book without several newfound discoveries about herself and her relation to her parents."--Nancy Evans, "Glamour"
""Thou Shalt Not Be Aware" is that rarest of gems, a highly creative and exciting work which throws a multifaceted light upon the development of human nature in the Western World."--Ashley Montagu
"Alice Miller is not out to 'hang the bastards, ' but rather to help create a world of self-conscious and self-loving individuals who don't need, want or know how to abuse others."--Sheila Koren, "San Francisco Chronicle "
"It is timely. It is powerful. It is painful . . . absorbing, enlightening and provoking."--Louise Lione, " Charlotte Observer"
