  • Why are many of the most successful people plagued by feelings of emptiness and alienation? This wise and profound book
    has provided thousands of readers with an answer—and has helped them to apply it to their own lives.Far too many of us
    had to learn as children to hide our own feelings, needs, and memories skillfully in order to meet our parents'
    expectations and win their ”love.” Alice Miller writes, ”When I used the word 'gifted' in the title, I had in mind
    neither children who receive high grades in school nor children talented in a special way. I simply meant all of us who
    have survived an abusive childhood thanks to an ability to adapt even to unspeakable cruelty by becoming numb… Without
    this 'gift' offered us by nature, we would not have survived.” But merely surviving is not enough. The Drama of the
    Gifted Child helps us to reclaim our life by discovering our own crucial needs and our own truth.
