View on Amazon

“[Oprah Winfrey and Bruce D. Perry] are both capable, likable narrators who are sincerely engaged with their subject matter… The performances of these two humanitarians make this a must-hear for anyone recovering from their traumatic past.” (AudioFile Magazine) This program is read by the authors.

Our earliest experiences shape our lives far down the road, and What Happened to You? Provides powerful scientific and emotional insights into the behavioral patterns so many of us struggle to understand. Through this lens we can build a renewed sense of personal self-worth and ultimately recalibrate our responses to circumstances, situations, and relationships.

It is, in other words, the key to reshaping our very lives.” (Oprah Winfrey) This audiobook is going to change the way you see your life. Have you ever wondered “Why did I do that?” or “Why can’t I just control my behavior?” Others may judge our reactions and think, “What’s wrong with that person?” When questioning our emotions, it’s easy to place the blame on ourselves; holding ourselves and those around us to an impossible standard.
