Publisher's Summary

Have you ever heard of your inner child? Well, this is the classic book that started it all.
In 1987, Charlie Whitfield's breakthrough concept of the child within - that part of us which is truly alive, energetic, creative, and fulfilled - launched the inner child movement. Healing the Child Within describes how the inner child is lost to trauma and loss, and how by recovering it, we can heal the fear, confusion, and unhappiness of adult life.
Eighteen years and more than a million copies sold later, Healing the Child Within is a perennial selling classic in the field of psychology. And it is even more timely today than it was in 1987. Recent brain research, particularly on the effects of trauma on the brain of developing children, has supported Whitfield's intuitive understanding as a psychiatrist.

Content is okay if you can cope listening to it.

This book should never have been made into an audiobook. Its content is completely lost in translation (for me at least). It contains long lists, which the narrator just reads out monotone and this becomes increasingly annoying over time. I found myself switching off as more and more lists were read out. In the end, I lost track of the content and after 3 hours, gave up entirely. Shame really, I was looking forward to it.

It was ok :-)

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I think it was time well spent in the sense I always prefer an audiobook these days. I learnt some things for sure.

What three words best describe Robert Feifar’s voice?

I think the voice was not the best. It lacked the passion that authors themselves have. It was too advertise-like perhaps.

Any additional comments?

I've only listened to it once and will listen to it again hopefully at some point. It's been a while since i listened to it but I do remember it brought up some emotion for me.
