From personal loss to phantom diseases, The Empathy Exams is a bold and brilliant collection; winner of the Graywolf Press Nonfiction Prize.

This book is recommended, as an intelligent read about empathy. It has mixed reviews, so it will be interesting to see if the minority of negative reviews, are valid. Or if they are simply due to empathy being uncommon and not understood by those who don’t understand it.

I am always searching for intelligent writing and views, on subjects I am interested in. I realise knowledge, academia, knowing the Bible. IQ etc…. all mean little, when empathy and wisdom are not applied.

Author: Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

I am a survivor of complex and multiple trauma and abuse, who at the age of 40, began my healing journey. I am using my journey to recovery and healing, to help others, to help survivors feel less alone, validated, encouraged and to enable others to understand themselves more. Complex trauma, particularly from severe, prolonged childhood abuse, is profoundly life changing. Complex trauma produces complex adults. The journey to recovery is a painful, often lonely, emotional daily challenge and it is my aim to encourage others in their daily battle.
