Summary:

'[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. It's time we started asking a different question.

Through deeply personal conversations, Oprah Winfrey and renowned brain and trauma expert Dr. Bruce Perry offer a groundbreaking and profound shift from asking "What's wrong with you?" to "What happened to you?"

Here, Winfrey shares stories from her own past, understanding through experience the vulnerability that comes from facing trauma and adversity at a young age. In conversation throughout the audiobook, she and Dr. Perry focus on understanding people, behavior, and ourselves. It's a subtle but profound shift in our approach to trauma, and it's one that allows us to understand our pasts in order to clear a path to our future-opening the door to resilience and healing in a proven, powerful way.

    This was an insightful and powerful book. We all have had pain and some type of trauma. It has shaped us whether we realize it or not. Hearing the different stories from this book has given me new perspective. I recommend this book to everyone, we all need to listen and learn from others stories.

    This book should be mandatory for anyone who works with children. The authors have a nice rapport and it is as if you are listening in on their conversation. The simple suggestions made by Dr.Perry are something that one can grasp and implement easily.

    This book has made it into my Top 3 so far. It feels intimate and insightful. The conversation style makes it feel more like a podcast than a book but yet, it is rich in information and interesting data related to the brain, healing and trauma. I loved it. The narrators have great engaging voices and when the switch between “heavier” content and stories makes the materials discussed more digestible and relatable. Absolute gem of a book.

    Incredible book, highly recommend

  • Amy N.

    Worthwhile. Two take aways about giving others permission to treat us a certain way and Oprah’s definition of forgiveness.

  • Michael H.

    Found this book very helpful and illuminating. Understanding the neuroscience behind the traumatic response explains a lot. If you can understand what your going through and from where it originates you can learn how to tame it.

  • Tamera K.

    Healing salve to the soul. A must read for this generation in hope to once again see and thus reconnect to one another.
