This is a powerful, thought-provoking book to learn more about your relationship with your mother, and your relationship with yourself. It covers all aspects of your relationship with your mother, but especially talks about your mother as a woman, as a sexual being and how she was raised to be a woman and what she thought about her own life as being female. There are many case examples in this book. It is considered a classic in the self-help books. There is a lot of interesting information in My Mother My Self that will make you re-examine your relationship with your mother. It will also help you to have more compassion for your mother, not to simply point the finger at your mother but to realize that she often did the best that she could for how she was raised. This is an excellent book and will make many people think in a different way about their mothers.
