Do your relationships tend to follow the same destructive pattern? Do you feel trapped by your family's expectations of you? Does your life seem overwhelmingly governed by jealousy or competitiveness or lack of confidence? In this ground-breaking book, clinical psychologist Oliver James shows that it is the way we were cared for in the first six years of life that has a crucial effect on who we are and how we behave. Nurture, in effect, shapes our very nature. James combines the latest scientific research with fascinating interviews to show that understanding your past is the first step to controlling your present.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from don't bother This book is a good example of the saying "If your only tool is a hammer, every problem looks like a nail.". The author is of the opinion that the type of parenting people receive in early life is the reason for everything from schizophrenia to homosexuality. This is not to deny that early parenting has an enormous influence, but it ignores things like links between diet and mental health, for example. And who still believes that homosexuality is the "fault" of the mother? This is a book for people who want to blame the parents for everything that is wrong with themselves or society.
