When I worked through this book in 1997 or 1998 it was difficult going, but I thought that my ability to manage the PTSD symptoms was evidence that my work was done.

Not so.

Now that we have documentation of the various stages of survivor work (thanks to Herman's [b:Trauma and Recovery|542700|Trauma and Recovery|Judith Lewis Herman|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1348664543s/542700.jpg|530025] which I only just found recently), I must admit the correctness of the one or two therapists who argued that working until you drop is effectively avoiding the work of recovery. So I cannot say whether I actually worked through this book correctly, only that I gave it a half-hearted try, and found it useful to some extent.
