Nice to Meet Me: One Man’s Journey Through Therapy for Sexual Abuse to Meet the Boy He Left Behind
by Chris Carlton, 2012
In this unique book, Carlton walks readers through the first 15 months of his healing journey, 'from when my trembling hand first opened the door to a therapist’s office to when I finally noticed myself enjoying life again – and all of the fear, the pain, the confusion, the laughter, and the tears in between.' His writing is clear, insightful, humble and funny. A former Navy intelligence officer with an MBA who managed advertising for ESPN, Carlton is a guy with whom many can relate. One caution: readers may need to protect themselves from comparing the pace of their own unique healing processes – or that of someone they love – to his description of the high speed of his.
