Some kind of grievance lies behind almost all of the problems people experience. The doctor and psychotherapist Reinhard Haller uses a selection of examples to illustrate the profound effect psychological wounds can have, and how we can use them to grow and strengthen our personalities.


»The highlights of this […] important book about the most dangerous states of the human mind include his descriptions of Sissi syndrome, honour killing and jealousy, the ›grievance struggles‹ of married couples, humiliation – ›the deepest scar‹ – and the chronic grievance of resentment, indiscriminate killings and terrorism, as well as feelings of insult and bitterness that manifest themselves through silence.«

»This man knows what he’s talking about«
