In her most important book yet, Dr. Laura Schlessinger shows men and women that they can have a Good Life no matter how Bad their Childhood was.

For each of us, there is a connection between our early family dynamics and experiences and our current attitudes and decisions. Many of the people Dr. Laura has helped did not realize how their histories impacted their adult lives, or how their choices in people, repetitive situations, and decisions -- even their emotional reactions -- were connected to those early negative experiences, playing a major role in their current unhappiness.

Dr. Laura will help you realize that no matter what circumstances you came from or currently live in, you are ultimately responsible for how you react to them. The acceptance of this basic truth is the source of your power to secure the Good Life you long for. In her signature straightforward style, with real-life examples, Dr. Laura shows you what you will gain by not being satisfied with an identity as a victim, or even as a survivor -- you should strive to be a victor!

In Bad Childhood -- Good Life, Dr. Laura will guide you to accept the truth of the assaults on your psyche and soul, understand your unique coping style and how it impacts your daily thoughts and actions, and help you embrace a life of more peace and happiness.

    " The best explanantions I've ever read about just moving on despite the crap you had no control over. Life is not about beginnings...but about the endings. There's always the lesson of change and hope despite the messes. And nobody has the perfect beginning...surprise, surprise. "

    " While I had a wonderful childhood and have a loving family, I believe the principals in this book apply to life's difficult events as they occur at any age or stage. Also, if you have a person in your life that you love or care about that had a Bad Childhood I think reading this book may help you relate to them and help them have a Good Life. "
