It is impossible to say a book on such a sensitive and horrific issue as child abuse is a great book to read; in fact, this book is probably one of the most difficult ones to read that you will ever come across. Having studied psychology, it is a known fact that Multiple Personality Disorder(MPD) is associated with child abuse.

Sybil is a story of such abuse at the hands of a mentally disturbed mother - sexual, physical and emotional abuse prevail.

Com o decorrer da terapia, a Dra. Wilbur descobre que ela tem 16 personalidades distintas. Ela usa hipnose e o barbitúrico Amobarbital para encorajar as diversas personalidades de Sybil a se comunicarem e revelarem informações sobre a vida da paciente… (més)

I'm giving this four stars, even if there is a new book out claiming it's all made it, just for pure page-turning readability. Every page introduces something shocking and who doesn't love to read about multiple personalities? While thinking of Sally Field?
