Book summary

The debate rages in magazines and newspapers ranging from "Vanity Fair" to "The New Yorker", from "Mother Jones" to the "New York Times" - can a long-forgotten memory of a horrible event like murder or sexual abuse suddenly resurface years later? Proponents of so-called "false memory syndrome" say it's impossible. This book presents seven cases from the author's own clinical experience of people whose lives changed forever when they reclaimed forgotten memories. Her testimony as an expert witness sheds light on why it's rare for a reclaimed memory to be wholly false and why denial is so effective at blocking memories. Lenore Terr is the author of "Too Scared to Cry". [via]
