This is an insightful, challenging, and potentially life-changing book. Though grounded in stories of shame and families, it yields valuable lessons for those addressing relationships in other social and institutional settings as well. As a bonus, comparing Dr. Dawson’s appendix posters of the “Old Rules” versus her suggested “New Rules” makes for a brilliant little self-counseling session, all wrapped up in a bow.
