Got Parts is an excellent book: it is wonderfully clear, concise and compassionate. I have worked full time with MPD clients for 15 years and this book would be the first required reading. It is a good reference book because often things that are said to the client don't get retained. Having a resource book such as this would have made my client's lives much easier. I will require it for any new clients, refer it to other therapists who do this work, and have even recommended it for clients who are much farther along in their healing. It is a definite keeper and I would recommend that you let the International Society of Study of Dissociation know about it when you have it published.

I think Got Parts is an excellent resource for helping people bring order out of internal chaos. It is reassuring, clear, direct, and hopeful. A great tool for working therapeutically with ones internal family.

Got Parts represents a systematic, structured program geared towards positive results for those labeled DID. Its focus on individual responsibility is refreshing in this day and age of blame shifting and excuse making! This is a must read regardless of one's support of or opposition to the medical model.

"DID is a heatedly-contested mental health diagnosis and it is entangled with no less controversial issues such as false memories. The author of this book avoids these pitfalls by concentrating on the victims. In an unusually empathic and straightforward tome, he successfully tackles the subjective experience of having DID: how does it feel? How to cope with it? What to avoid? The book is firmly grounded in state of the art knowledge about this disorder - but combines it with useful lists of do's and don'ts derived from the combined experience of numerous sufferers. Recommended."

"I strongly recommend this book as a easily read, straightforward and insightful recovery tool for my clients with DID. It is must read for any person who is struggling to come to terms with their DID as well as the people who love and/or support them."
Heather Dooks, RN Nova Scotia, Canada
This book is a practical and useful tool describing the process of one individual and may be used alongside therapy, other tools, skill teaching, and processes in the treatment of DID.

Got Parts really is a valuable book that deals with the practical aspects of living with a dissociative disorder.
