In 1989, Robert B. Oxnam, the successful China scholar and president of the Asia Society, faced up to what he thought was his biggest personal challenge: alcoholism. But this dependency masked a problem far more serious: Multiple Personality Disorder.

At the peak of his professional career, after having led the Asia Society for nearly a decade, Oxnam was haunted by periodic blackouts and episodic rages. After his family and friends intervened, Oxnam received help from a psychiatrist, Dr. Jeffery Smith, and entered a rehab center. It wasn't until 1990, during a session with Dr. Smith, that the first of Oxnam's 11 alternate personalities, an angry young boy named Tommy, suddenly emerged. With Dr. Smith's help, Oxnam began the exhausting and fascinating process of uncovering his many personalities and the childhood trauma that caused his condition.

    " I am loving and fascinated by this book so far. As a psych major, I never managed to study abnormal psych, but I was always interested in it, especially multiple personality disorder. I'd heard an interview with the author and have been looking forward to reading this for awhile. "

    " If you ever wanted to get into the mind of someone with multiple personality disorder, this book is a great way to do it. The writing style is that of each of the personalities speaking through themselves to their psychiatrist trying to integrate to form a functional individual. The great thing about this story is how the author was so easily able to hide his disorder for 50 years while still working in close contact with past presidents, foreign diplomats, and the secret service. "

    " Interesting insider view of multiple personalities. This book differs from others in the genre by focusing on the internal life of the personalities rather than on the abuse that caused the split. "
