Author Essay

This is a fascinating book that we were all proud to publish.  It "de-sensationalizes"  multiple personality disorder for the reader and explains it clearly through a very compelling and emotionally charged case.  Though now eight years old, THE FLOCK continues to sells very well.

One of the aspects that struck most of us when we first read it was that healthy people develop separate personalities on a moderate level:  a "work" personality, a "spouse/lover" personality, a "son/daughter" personality, a "parent" personality, and many more.  But healthy people don’t completely dissassociate because they aren’t protecting their souls from the intense kind of suffering experienced by a victim of sexual abuse.

The best books teach us as much about ourselves as the subjects about which they were written.
