    DescriptionWhy are many of the most successful people plagued by feelings of emptiness and alienation? This wise and profound book has provided thousands of readers with an answerand has helped them to apply it to their own lives. Far too many of us had to learn as children to hide our own feelings, needs, and memories skillfully in order to meet our parents expectations and win their love. Alice Miller writes, When I used the word gifted in the title, I had in mind neither children who receive high grades in school nor children talented in a special way. I simply meant all of us who have survived an abusive childhood thanks to an ability to adapt even to unspeakable cruelty by becoming numb Without this gift offered us by nature, we would not have survived. But merely surviving is not enough. The Drama of the Gifted Child helps us to reclaim our life by discovering our own crucial needs and our own truth.

  • amazing book!5

    amanda donovan I loved this book. From the first few pages it felt like I was being slapped in the face with a wet cloth. . . . as I read the curtains in my mind started to open. This book is not for the faint hearted. It is real, no nonsense, tell it like it is information. It really and truly blew me away. WOW! thats all I can say!! by amanda donovan
