A Must-Read for Anyone Interested in the Intricacies of the Human Mind Format: Paperback An inspiring and illuminating book about a woman's long struggle with hysteria, and her brave effort to deal with the psychological issues which have plagued her for years. This memoir provides a fascinating and sensitive look inside her troubled mind as she uncovers feelings, thoughts and memories which had remained buried for so long. Kudos to the author for gaining new insights into her behavior and for her courage to present them to the outside world in such a meaningful manner. After beginning Chapter 1, the reader will be unable to put this memoir down until the emotionally-gripping conclusion in Chapter 24. I give this book a solid 5 stars, and recommend having a pack of tissues nearby.
