A must read for anyone either dealing with multiple personalities, or with a friend or family member with this problem. Fascinating and eye opening.

I guess I wasn't prepared for how somber this book would be. It was readable , but depressing for me. IF you are an upbeat person and are studying this for a psychology course, then it would be an excellent source.

The subject matter: treating multiple personality with a goal of integration is handled not in the scientific sense but anecdotal as the author begins treatment and learns how to live with multiplicity and remember her past. It not only includes the author's account, but has excerpts from the case notes as well as remembrances from her therapist, Lynn Wilson.

As much as I enjoyed this book, the reality is that therapy for multiples is rarely conducted in the manner that Ms. Casey and Ms. Wilson proceeded. Considering that there was little resource material to guide Ms. Wilson in her treatment of Ms. Casey, she did an exceptional job.

I found this to be a good read and would recommend it to someone who wants to know more about multiplicity officially diagnosed as Disociative Identity Disorder.
