Product description

Review

''In this inspirational work which seamlessly weaves keen clinical observation, neuroscience, historical analysis, the arts, and personal narrative, Dr. van der Kolk has created an authoritative guide to the effects of trauma, and pathways to recovery. The book is full of wisdom, humanity, compassion and scientific insight, gleaned from a lifetime of clinical service, research and scholarship in the field of traumatic stress. A must-read for mental health and other health care professionals, trauma survivors, their loved ones, and those who seek clinical, social, or political solutions to the cycle of trauma and violence in our society.'' --Rachel Yehuda, PhD, professor of psychiatry and neuroscience, director of the Traumatic Stress Studies Division at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai

''This is an absolutely fascinating and clearly written book by one of the nation s most experienced physicians in the field of emotional trauma. The Body Keeps the Score helps us understand how life experiences play out in the function and the malfunction of our bodies, years later.'' --Vincent J. Felitti, MD, emeritus chief of preventative medicine, Kaiser Permanente San Diego

''Every once in a while, a book comes along that fundamentally changes the way we look at the world. Bessel van der Kolk has written such a book. The arc of Van der Kolk's story is vast and comprehensive, but he is such a skillful storyteller that he keeps us riveted to the page. I could not put this book down. It is, simply put, a great work.'' --Stephen Cope, author of Yoga and the Quest for the True Self

''Breathtaking in its scope and breadth, The Body Keeps the Score is a seminal work by one of the preeminent pioneers in trauma research and treatment. This essential book unites the evolving neuroscience of trauma research with an emergent wave of body-oriented therapies and traditional mind/body practices that go beyond symptom relief and connect us with our vital energy and here-and-now presence.'' --Peter A. Levine, PhD, author of In an Unspoken Voice: How the Body Releases Trauma and Restores Goodness

''The Body Keeps the Score articulates new and better therapies for toxic stress based on a deep understanding of the effects of trauma on brain development and attachment systems. This volume provides a moving summary of what is currently known about the effects of trauma on individuals and societies, and introduces the healing potential of both age-old and novel approaches to help traumatized children and adults fully engage in the present.'' --Jessica Stern, author of Denial: A Memoir of Terror

2.0 out of 5 stars 2 Stars only for tiny font size: unreadable!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 28 November 2019
If I had not written my name in this book before trying to read it, I would have returned it.

The text is TINY and so I struggled to read it.

I have now ordered a hardback copy from elsewhere in the hope that I will be able to read it more comfortably.

If you are familiar with text sizes, it's looking about size 8 which is way below accessibility requirements today. These are either 11 or 12 on the basic fonts such as Times New Roman, which is what this seems to be.

The photo of the book cover probably illustrates the font size best: the line of text below the italics, beneath the graphic, in block capitals is similar in size to the text within the whole book.

Excluding the Index, the book comprises 421 pages; and I wonder if the reduced font was in order to reduce the number of pages...?

It's a shame, this book has been recommended to me by my counsellor; so I am rather disappointed and shocked, it has to be said, by my inability to see the text comfortably enough to read it.
