Mark Bryan's message is that families provide a sense of belonging that doesn’t always seem loving but that is essential for the adult heart to grow. In this program he triumphs over the inherent risks of memoir by telling his story of childhood shame and alienation with taste and a sense of empowerment. He promotes living an integrated life with warmth and promise, and asks us very effectively to accept shortcomings in ourselves and others and to embrace the central need to connect with our family members as they are. The psychological truths and good advice in this audio are packaged well enough to be appreciated by a wide range of listeners. It's recommended to everyone with a desire to find the treasures their family of origin can give to them. T.W. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 00]
