    I Am More Than One by Jane Wegscheider Hyman (Phantasma)
    Phantasma: I Am More Than One helps explain the phenomenon of DID. It's a great supplement to this book for those interested in the disorder itself.

To be honest it was a very hard book to read. very confusing with all the troops characters. I thought it was a bit weird that the troops were writing this story. I liked Sybil much better but there were parts of this book that were really good. What a sad story.

Whether or not you believe the metaphsyical theories of Dr. Robert A. Phillips in regards to MPD or DID (dissociate identity disorder), he was in fact able to track down Truddi Chase's half-siblings and verify a large amount of the horrific abuse detailed in this book.

Perhaps Ms. Chase did create over ninety framented personalities to survive, or perhaps the fragments were really one personality and the work of an overzealous psychatrist. Either way, this woman survived something far worse than any horror author could dream of writing. She not only survived--she became a successful and brilliant woman.

That, itself, makes for a truly fascinating and ultimately empowering read. ( )

I had read started to read this book when it first came out then had to put it away. It was to much emotionally for me.I felt so horrible for Truddi and to know that evil affects even little children so profoundly. I eventually got rid of the book with out finishing it. Fast foward 15 years? later and I checked it out at my local library. I forced myself through it and was amazed at the endurance of the human spirit and what the mind does in order to protect . I had read Sybil when I was in high school and while that was a horrible case of abuse and personality disorder it did not have the impact on me that this book did. Not for the weak hearted. ( )

After watching the newest show on Oprah mentioning and talking about Truddi Chase and after wanting to do more reading the disorder side of this phenomena, I decided to pick-up this book. A really good read. it’s a autobiography written in a story format. This way of writing really helped the book easier to follow along. Their story truly was a fascinating and chilling read about their prolonged abuse as a child and their growth into a more functioning multiple system. ( )

A chilling book! I was really struck by the honesty presented by the Troops, as the multiple personalities call themselves. It was a sad picture of abuse and trauma, but also a story of redeeming the situation. ( )
