I am on the fence about this one. I do need to keep in mind that it was published in 1991 so at the time there was so little information on MPD and Ritual Abuse. This book was very disturbing to read at times and I caught myself several times being very skeptical about what I was reading. I also felt as if the Dr. was naive-but once again, little was known at that time.

I also recognized some things that I have been through or am going through also. (Nothing as serious as these patients though)..

Hey everybody! Did you know that if you have problems and can't remember certain periods of your childhood, you might very well have been ritually abused in a satanic cult and developed multiple personalities to cope with the experience? And there is a good chance that the people in the cult deliberately created at least one of those personalities that would keep you from betraying them! It's true!!!!!!!!!!

At first I thought it to be interesting but after a while it started to get laughable. This shrink is lucky. He just wrote a book about multiple personality disorder and then 5 different people come in his practice and he discovered they were all abused by satanist as a child and are all suffering from MPD.
I looked on the Internet to find more about this subject and there are some interesting sites about ritual abuse and multiple personality disorder. They've never find a shrink of evidence that
Interesting, but ultimately a shrink-bashing classic and a wonderful relic of the Satanic Panic of the 1980s and 1990s. The author has people with multiple personalities practically lined up outside his door waiting to tell him they are victims of Satanic ritual abuse. Happily, he cures them all in a jiffy.

While editing my Good Reads list of books read, I found that I had not rated nor written a review of this book. I have no recollection of this book at all...I must not have found it very good.. so I am giving it a low rating now that I am posting a rating two years after the fact.

Bit of a pulpy read, but god it's so good. If you're as interested by the spread of early '90s Satanic ritual child abuse false memories as I am, you'll love this!
