This book is exceptionally well researched. It delves into the reliability of the recovery of repressed memory by means of hypnosis. After listening to this book I cannot say that my opinion of this pseudo-science has changed. Like the author of this book, I would not say they are all planted, but it is very sketchy business. ( )

Book description
Susan Nason, aged 8, was kidnapped and murdered in 1969.   Twenty years later, her best friend, Eileen Franklin-Lipsker claimed to have recovered repressed memories of the murder, committed by her own father, George Franklin.   George was convicted, but a debate ensued about the reliability and even existence of such memories.   Harry N. MacLean concludes that Eileen was not a reliable witness.
