Midwest Book Review says: "In Waking The World: Classic Tales Of Women And The Heroic Feminine, A. B. Chinen has gathered twelve fairy tales from around the world (many forgotten like buried treasures) that are united by one common thread: a woman overcomes adversity and betrayal to transform her situation and the world. After each story, Dr. Chinen provides a lively and perceptive commentary, intertwining well-known myths and stories of clients in therapy. The tales are grouped into five sections, each with a different theme: power, wisdom, nature as a sanctuary and a source of healing, sisterhood, and reconciliation with men. "
