This classic on a fundamental aspect of all emotional suffering is a must read for anyone on the journey of finding their lost heart. Kaufman's writing is both profound and easy to grasp. He illuminates brightly what has for far too long lived in the shadows.

Super wordy. Though there are pages of references in the back I had a hard time telling the difference between factual findings from research and his own opinions. I do greatly respect his thoughts and all the work he has done, but this book was tough to get through. Good information about shame binds, which was a very interesting concept to me. Interesting application to war in the final chapter.
