"This is a very compelling book. I like the voice and the examples from Dr. Taliaferro's life in emergency medicine."
Parkland Hospital Foundation, Dallas
"This delightful book was a surprise: pithy and full of nuggets. The writing is crystal clear and the wisdom in the book is very gently communicated. This self-help book is needed and welcome. The book tells about other resources that the reader can use to learn even more about health after trauma and abuse."
New York Times best-selling author
