A very workable translation of the seminal French work by a leading psychoanalyst, specialising in group psychotherapy -- sending AIDS and cancer into remission! by a noted French psychologist (also spent much time in the US and of Russian/Swiss ancestry herself). Oftentimes many of the roots of our current complexes can be explained by an easy but methodical tracing of our family trees, uncovering the FACT that important events have been interred into our genetic structures, only to pop up generations later. In other words, ignorace is bliss until you have to live with the circumstances, in which case knowledge is power. This should not be confused with New Age or Easy Self-Help.
