Just wondering if anybody has read or listened to:

Forgetting​

The Benefits of Not Remembering
by Scott A. Small

I am overwhelmed by so many books in my collection and interested to see if anyone has read this book and if it's useful for PTSD or depression?
 
I hadn’t heard of it, so I looked it up, and it appears the Author’s focus is on Alzheimer’s & Schizophrenia.
Scott A. Small is an American neurologist and neuroscientist known for his work in Alzheimer's disease and normal cognitive aging. His research focuses on the hippocampus, a circuit in the brain targeted by Alzheimer's disease, aging, and schizophrenia. Wikipedia


Doesn’t mean it won’t be useful, but if you’re looking for books specially for PTSD? The most popular I’ve seen are:

- The Body Keeps The Score (PTSD of all kinds) Bessel Van Der Kolk
- Once A Warrior, Always A Warrior (Combat PTSD) Charles Hoge
- Complex PTSD, From Surviving To Thriving (Complex Childhood Trauma) Pete Walker
- The PTSD Relationship (Supporters) Diane England

- Feeling Great (depression, 2020 update from 1990 Feeling Good) David Burns



The link below are the top 52 experts in PTSD & CPTSD, all of whom have published, many of whom have published books meant to be read by laypeople (us!), like the ones above

Hi Friday

So busy looking at myPTSD and writing to Dr Bloom that I never got around to thanking you for your reply. The only book on that list that I know is The Body Keeps The Score. I have got a lot of reading to catch up on; I'll look at some of the 52 experts too. Thanks again
 
I see that some others on this forum have found some good info in the writings of Beverly Engel. Years ago I found her book, It Wasn't Your Fault to be quite useful.

Question for Moderator: Is it OK to post thumbnails of book covers?
