    1. This was one of the most enlightening and frightening books I've ever read! Lenore interviews and tells the true stories of people who have recalled trauma from their childhood many years later. Not only are these mesmerizing stories uncovered, but Lenore Terr works with cognitive and behavioral therapists and the scientific information on how memory returns and which parts of the brain are activated when long-term memories are retrieved. I had to put the book down a few times and then return. I [...]


    2. Leonore Terr works in the field of 'memory' as both a practitioner and researcher. She writes these case studies of people who were not her own clients, but in whom she became very interested. Sometimes they made contact with her, other times she made contact with them. Terr also recounts examples from many other cases to illustrate how memories work.This is a most readable book. Even when giving detail that's important for the reader to understand (as in the different types of memory), Terr tel [...]


    3. This book is fucking frightening. The fact that horrible, horrible things may have happened to us in childhood that we do not consciously remember as adults but which are stored in our memory systems nonetheless and are technically recoverable under certain circumstances - frightening.



    4. I couldn't put this book down. True stories/case studies of repressed memories recovered, well written and engaging from start to finish.


    5. I liked her previous book, Too Scared To Cry: Psychic Trauma In Childhood, which is about research into whether children remember traumatic events or just forget and get over them (they remember). This one isn't as good; it's a collection of stories of recovered memory. Some are interesting, others aren't but go on too long. The best one is about the fiction of James Ellroy and how his memories of his mother, who was murdered when he was ten, show up in his fiction.


    6. This book was less interesting than you would expect, given the subject. It was a little too academic and dry for my taste.


    7. I benefited greatly from reading Lenore Terr's book. Great insights and educated me on memory processing and survival. Don't read unlessyou are ready, willing, and open.
