"The most intelligent and lucid account I've read of human
psychology." -- Carol Gilligan
"Apter . . . risks the wrath of anyone who romanticizes 'mother love' as instinctual and universal by describing, candidly and cogently, the framework in which children experience their most significant attachment." -- Huffington Post
"This sound, intelligent book is a good starting point for a self-examination." -- Publishers Weekly
"Apter's advice will help readers make sense of difficult mother-child relationships and develop strategies for reshaping responses and expectations. . . . Anyone with a problematic maternal relationship will find empathy and therapeutic approaches for healing." -- Library Journal
