Talking of Love on the Edge of a Precipice | Online Book Store Dubai



All of us suffer from trauma in our lives, whether it be a difficult childhood, the end of a love affair or a violent experience. Yet rather than be controlled by our pain, it is possible for us to grow in the face of our problems and create a new life for ourselves. In his groundbreaking work on the healing power of resilience, Boris Cyrulnik has created a new way for us to understand ourselves and our pasts. Cyrulnik shows us that the journey from hurt to hope may not be easy, but is one we have to choose in order to survive. Ultimately, this book is a celebration of the healing, transforming power of love.
