Excellent Basic Book on Understanding DID

This is a wonderful book for people with DID, their families, and friends. It provides some very important basic information that lays the groundwork for understanding behavior, moods, and attitudes. This understanding is absolutely essential for successfully dealing with having DID or dealing with a person who has it. The author also does a great job calming the very frequent fear that those with DID are dangerous. Recommended for anyone who has just been diagnosed, their family, and their friends!

A wonderful insightful book on DID/MPD

I have DID/MPD and I found this book to be quite useful and informative. My husband liked it just as much as I did. I would recommend this book to hand out to family and friends so that they can have a better understanding of what DID/MPD is. Hocking explains DID/MPD in layman terms that everyone can understand. She gives the reader some "do's and don'ts" in dealing with someone with DID/MPD. A great book for someone who has just been diagnosed with the condition. Hopeful outcome! THUMBS UP!!

an excellent overview of difficult subject matter

As an out-line of how a multiple sees the world outside, this is a good read. Some of these things are quite true to what I know regarding my own internal system, and some are not. I'm a Christian multiple trying to heal, and thought of myself as a walking "contradiction in terms". I know now that at 6 months of age I had few options for survival. You have to draw from the options available. I chose life over death. I'm a surviver. And I still choose life.

Excellent read, clearly explains aspects of multiplicity

This book by a survivor is an excellent choice to give to friends and family. I have given copies to my therapist, support team, and physicians -- much to their delight and gratitude. It clearly explains MPD/DID and how the system can work together for unity. It is easy to read and understand and stresses without a doubt that DID's can live quite functionally -- and happy.

Amazing basic book for friends/family

If you only buy one book on DID for your family and friends make it this one. It explains things quite clearly, with no implications that the DID person is 'sick'. Written -by- a multiple, this book is a good road map for confused significant others.
